Editor's Note:

Happy Birthday, from Birmingham Parent!

It’s another year of our big birthday party issue, and we hope it will be helpful to you, a “keeper” you can use throughout the year for your child’s party, team party, church party, school party and more!  


But don’t miss the other great stories this issue – including our Destination Guide that features Chicago, Dollywood and New Orleans. We’ve also got great health stories, and a profile of Easterseals ambassador Noah Humphreys.


Next month, we’ll be highlighting our annual 2017 Family Favorites winners as well as preschools, daycares and mothers’ day outs throughout the area. Don’t miss it! Remember you can always see issues you may have missed by visiting and clicking on “past issues” up at the top! Be sure to check out the new Virtual Celebrations Expo on our website for even more party information.
