Party Time!

Izzy turned three this week!

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!)


  1. Aww happy birthday Izzy! what a beautiful princess she is in her dress :) you did well with all those special touches they are just fab!
