Birthday Box for College

Our older daughter recently went away to college for the first time, and will not be home until after her birthday to celebrate. So her 18th birthday will not pass by unnoticed while she is at school, I put together a birthday in a box that can be used by her suite mates help her celebrate!

I took a shoebox and filled it with the following items (some from leftover birthday parties of the past and some new from the dollar store and garage sales).

1) Balloons and a decorative balloon on a stick
2) Confetti
3) Party hats
4) Noise makers
5) Hanging "Happy Birthday" sign
6) Singing Photo frame
7) Plastic cupcake
8) Cupcake shaped plate
9) Loot bags

I will mail this to her room mate about a week before her special day. The items are silly, but should bring a smile to her face.

I may also send a cookie bouquet or a DQ cake gift certificate to round out the festivities!
Happy Birthday Kara!

I love this idea! I have a niece who is away at college, so I may do this for her on her birthday. Thanks for sharing this clever idea!

Very thoughtful idea. If I hadn't known he'd be humiliated, I'd have tried something like this when my son was in USMC advanced training on his 18th birthday!
