She had a princesses and super heroes party (and another party in the evening for all our families! And yes I am still recovering!).
My favourite things...
The capes I made being debuted.
The cutest tea party ever!
Marshmallow castles (flags are cocktail sticks with strips of paper glued on with a sticky dot) thanks to my long suffering sister.
Of course blowing out the candles! Though not loving the not-so-glamerous shot of myself!
My first attempt at a birthday banner.
Some princess swinging.
And a birthday badge (which she loved but wouldn't wear), though I am thinking it would be fine to let her wear it on a "normal" day. Maybe it would even result in special treatment at monkey maze or a restaurant...
(These were the only ones left at the end!)
Inside the girls.
Hair bands I made using this tutorial and just sewed it on a plain elastic.
And inside the boys (cape from this post).
And Izzy loved that even she got a party bag! Although because she'd helped stuff them all she had a few bonus 'extras'.
Phew I'm tired again just thinking about it! But loved every minute! And I am very proud that I survived my first ever kids party :)
So do you have anything that really works for you? Any parties you've done or been to? (I am thinking a little less sugar next time!)
