A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Eva’s 4th birthday. And like many four-year-olds, she requested a pink, princess party! With a little inspiration from Pinterest, a few purchases from Etsy, a little DIY, some recycling from previous parties and a few knights and dragons thrown in for good measure, Eva had a perfectly pink (and gold) princess party.
With 12 kids running and giggling around our backyard, they played the typical party games — What’s the Time Mr Wolf, Musical Statues, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Dragon Vs Princesses (a variation of the swimming pool classic, Sharks and Minnows), and chasies.
All of the kids had a blast. They lined up and beat a piñata. They dressed up. They devoured the sweet and sugary snacks and left the healthier star fruit wands. They could have spent the entire 2 hours fully engaged with the bubble machine.
Eva was so engrossed with her friends that she hardly noticed the food or the presents; more than half were left unopened at the end of the party. Although she did manage to stop and sit to eat her strawberry birthday cake — lovingly made by her grandma!
So after two parties, two weekends in a row — we’re all exhausted and have consumed a little too much cake!
