Lexington Family Magazine’s Pinterest Birthday Party Ideas

Have you discovered Pinterest yet? I describe it as an electronic version of a bulletin board in your home. You can “pin” all those digital images just like you’d pin up a page you tore out of a magazine in the past.

The nice thing about digital pins is that the photo includes a link to a website, blog or Facebook pages with all the details about what you have just pinned.

I’ve found that Pinterest is an absolute must when planning at-home birthday parties. Lexington Family has worked hard to put together a comprehensive set of Pinterest boards to help you with all facets of family life, but we are particularly proud of our Plan-Your-Own-Party boards. Check us out at http://pinterest.com/LexingtonFamily.
