One of the best things about having a birthday during the summer months is the party that comes along! It can be hard, especially for younger gals to miss out on the requisite birthday treat from your teacher/celebration in the classroom or otter pops recess, and as you get older, to not have a 21 run down Greek row, or to have all your friends on vacation if you want to have a little get together after work. But we’re looking on the bright side here; you’ve the sun, the weather, and hopefully a few days off from work or school to take advantage of! So whether you’re throwing your little rugrat’s a birthday party or planning the best bash since My Super Sweet 16, we’ve got you covered and where to go to get crazy!
