In some ways, Teresa Guidice is just like us, I mean The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom did decide to throw her daughter Audriana’s ninth birthday party in her backyard, after all. In other ways, however, she’s not like us — like when she rented a humongous bull ride for the party, or brought in the massive, 30-foot by 30-foot “Toxic Meltdown” inflatable action game! Also on tap: A candy and donut bar, a huge balloon arch, a cake fit for a wedding, dance offs, lip synching, cuban food, unlimited pizzas and lots more little girl-approved activities. And if you checked out Teresa's Instagram posts, there were A LOT of screaming little girls there!
These days most parents outsource birthday parties, heading to bounce factories or ceramics studios when it comes time to host a few dozen kids. And we understand the reasoning — little kids’ birthday parties are a total headache! They involve a lot of work (and don’t get us started on the cleanup!). But as all parents know, they're also totally worth it the minute you see how happy your kiddo is.
Which is why we’re giving Teresa major props for going old-school for Audriana’s birthday and looking no further than her own backyard in Towaco, New Jersey when it came time to pick a venue.
And what a venue it was! To have a backyard that's big enough to accommodate not one but two gigantic inflatable rides means you've got a pretty big backyard.
The birthday girl looked pleased as punch throughout the festivities, dancing with her friends and posing for photos under that massive balloon arch. Happy birthday, Audriana!
