Margaux’s Flintstones Birthday: A Truly Rocking Party!


WELCOME TO BEDROCK (pop. 2,500, Stone Age) Following off in the same vein as my previous post, Aerin: Meet Riverdale’s New Sweetheart, here’s another novel idea for a theme, this time coming from one of the greatest TV cartoons of all time: The Flintstones! Meet the Flintstones. Can anybody say, “Yabba Dabba Doo!” Margaux Rocks One in this Truly Unique Party Part of the allure of designing children’s parties is the sheer breadth of the possible: one week I’m working on a pastel Gems party, and...

At this point in the conversation, the usual suggestion would be made: do a theme based on Noah’s Ark. My client, Merianne, wanted something different though.
