On Saturday the 21st May we celebrated Zafirah’s 6th Birthday with a Princess Party.
Now for those of you that know Miss Zaf personally, you will well know that there was no options involved in planning such event, I was just to do as I was told!!! LOL
So I hired our local Girl Guide Hall, and got to work planning a gala event.I used disposable plastic tablecloths to hide the guide’s pin boards and white board. Added some balloons for decoration and a Princess banner I picked up from the party section of Safeway. I found ‘Disney Princess’ themed party packs on the chuck-out table at Spotlight so setting up this whole table for 22 children cost me around $20. BARGAIN!!! I found the template to make these gorgeous cupcake wrappers on a site called Food Art Party! Here’s the link:
I set up a table with princess colouring in pictures to keep the girls amused in between the games and the food!
The Play-doh table proved popular with the little ladies!
Aria, Zafirah and Veruca ready to PAR-TAY!
I whipped up my own version of the classic ‘Pin the tail on the donkey’. I gave each girl a silver heart and when blindfolded they had to try and get it in the centre of the crown! Zafirah was a little off target! Hahaha!We played the traditional ‘Pass the Parcel’. Each layer had alternating mini tiaras or lolly bracelets in them!
Now when I say feast, what I really mean is finger foods, sandwiches etc…. Nothing fancy and nothing extreme as it was between 2-4pm.
Before I knew it, it was time to bring out the cake!Happy Birthday to you…… Get ready to blow out your candles!
After I served up the birthday cake, we played a few rounds of ‘Bobs & Statues’ and had our very own Princess Parade!
It was a rough day on the kids as our precious cat ‘Boots’ was run over and killed. Particularly difficult for our wanna be Vet, Aria, who wasn’t coping too well with the news! Nothing a big mummy cuddle cant fix!!!
Well, here it is ladies, me in a dress. A spiffy taffeta one at that. Wont see that very often!!! Hahahaha. Trust Zafirah to pull a silly face too!
Thanks to my creative genius friend Manda C, whom came up with this awesome idea, we made little pouches to pop some goodies in for the girls to take home with them.
So aside from the wand on the front, I included some bubbles, a ring, necklace, hair-clip, bracelet, tiara and a lolly-pop!
I also gave the girls a balloon each on their departure!
So there you go. A party fit for a princess……. LOL
