Can't believe it but my youngest turned 5 on Friday and we've been enjoying a week long celebration, that's what happens when you hold the party the weekend before the actual day!
So, we started out with a party at a local gym, with bouncy floor, trampoline, ceiling swing, huge slide and many more child-energy-user-uppers, as well as the parents who just HAD to have a go on most of the apparatus too!
Of course the birthday girl had to have a turn on the parachute while
we all sang 'Happy Birthday'.
We had a special chocolate cake made by the, always wonderful, Nevie-Pie Cakes. We asked for a pastel pink and yellow dotty creation and she did not disappoint us, it was gorgeous and completely delicious as ever. I wanted it plain as I planned to decorate the top with some cake bunting that I had made and Georgie and her big sis painted a large cardboard '5'. I added a little last minute bunting trim around the bottom of the cake too, just using the party napkins, although it got a little squashed in transit.
Would you believe, preparations began many months before the special date, collecting pink and yellow goodies here, there and everywhere and placing them in our PARTY BOX, which always seems to contain a 'party in progress' (I mean, we've already started collecting white, black and hot pink goodies for big girl's 8th birthday in ..... December!!). Cute bunting and pink pegs below purchased from the fabulous Reilly & Moss.
Of course I HAD to add a Heartfelt Handmade creation to the goody bags, so I made some pink and yellow windmill hair clips for the girls and some silly moustache bookmarks for the boys...
I even had a go at making some lemon and chocolate (separate flavours, not mixed up) cupcakes, which I kept just for the grown ups, well the kids had their marshmallow pops as well as a plethora of party rings, choc chip cookies, plain marshmallows and other sugar filled delights.
Lots of fun was had by all ...
... only to do it all again, on a much smaller scale, with a picnic in the garden on her actual birthday, with lots of bubble blowing.
Happy 5th Birthday Georgie!
