October is a busy month in our household with both daughters having their birthdays just 5 days apart. We decided to throw a simple party just for our 4 year old and her friends but leaving the planning to my husband meant that it wasn't going to be so simple afterall. Who would have thought that an engineer would be so good at planning a princess party?! We called it "Princess Amber's Birthday Party and the Dragon".
Upon arrival, the girls, all dressed up in their princess dresses, got to decorate their own tiaras with glitter glue and stickers. They then got dolled up with rings, bracelets and lip gloss before heading outside where they were greeted with a red carpet lined with purple, pink and silver balloons, a princess tent, a castle pinata, afternoon tea and a treasure hunt.
On the menu we had mini quiches, party pies, sausage rolls, chips, carrot and celery sticks, dips, fairy bread, jelly cups, cupcakes and a fruit platter. To go with that we also had some Fruitalicious tea from T2 which is a lovely child-friendly fruity mix. This also proved to be a hit with the adults.
And now for the best part, they got to open their treasure boxes with the keys which they had found earlier on in the treasure hunt. Inside they had a dragon finger puppet, golden chocolate coins, lollipops, lollies, fruity lip gloss and scented nail polish. This was their "lolly bag" which they all got to bring home with them.
So that was our princess party, and a successful one at that! If you'd like to hire my husband to plan a party for your child, he comes highly recommended! :) What kind of parties have you thrown for your child?
