This is Angelina's friend from school "D".
She says... "He Like LIKES me."
We had macaroni and cheese
Octopus hot dogs
and for the parents
cheese and crackers
and a vegetable platter
tiny cans of sprite
custom made label water bottles
and cupcakes of course!
I made large tissue paper flowers
and paper flags that were all
hanging from the ceiling.
(Wish I had a better picture of those!)
We had a lot of the activities in the playroom
to keep the mess inside to a minimum.
(and give the parents a quiet place to hang out)
The children all decorated "treasure boxes"
with gems. They turned out so cute!
Grace had the "dress up" station.
We had fairy wings, head pieces with ribbons and skirts
for the girls... and some boys wore them too.
And for the boys we had pirate scarves.
The children all got their nails done with
nail polish and sparkles galore.
We also had glitter tattoos for everyone.
We played games and had a treasure box of prizes
to pick from. And inside we had a table with beads
and other supplies for a quiet activity for the kids
to make bracelets. Jude and his friend "A" really
had fun together stringing beads. (below)
All of the kids took turns outside
"walking the plank"
over a pool of "bloody" water.
After walking the plank they got to
get a prize:
A crown or sword.
(I was surprised how many
of the girls wanted swords.)
They had a great time running around
"fake fighting" with them.
I think Angelina was giving a
lesson about "hitting" people with
Note to self:
Give the swords out at the END of the party
just as the kids are leaving!
After running around
(most of the kids in bare feet)
and getting a bit muddy...
a game of Simon says-
we headed back inside for
Angeline and Isaac received many
fun and beautiful gifts.
We have had a busy week
enjoying them all.
Everyone was so patient during this time.
And Dominick was a big
help with reading the cards!
Then it was time to sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Although they asked us to do it
quietly- we didn't.
(Thus the ear covering.)
We all had cupcakes and cake pops.
More running around outside.
And then it was time to go home!
(With goody bags of course!!)
Happy 6th Birthday
Angelina and Isaac.
I love you both SO much!
