There's a snap shots of the happing on that day. I didn't take alot of photos as we were really swamped by the events and so many people turned up! The tutorials and links where I got the ideas are in the next post. as this may be a rather long one...
The theme of the day was "Toy Party" so we brought out alot of toys and set up games at different corners for the children. My girl has requested to have blue, pink and green as the colour theme. So I've used the 3 colours and design an invitation cards for her schoolmates and church friends that she invited.
My hubby did the 3 pom pom flowers deco in pink, blue and green and tie them on top of the children tables as the centre piece. Don't they look beautiful? I've rented children tables and chairs from the caterer - Smiling orchid. It was a good thing as we had more than 30 children running around. I've placed some marsmallows and chocolate in the 3 colour shades in the middle. Oh, I also later added the potato chips which were a great hit with the kids and adults alike.

I've placed the names of my 2 girls as backdrop at the back of the room and arrange the chalkboards at the right corners. The snow white pinata is a special request from my girl which was quite expensive. I bought them at Leisure Park level 2, one of the gift shop at $25? I can't really recall the prize. At first I thought it would be very tramatic for the children to hit Snow White but realised that it was a pull-pinata. So there are many strings attached at the bottom of the pinata and the children take turn to pull one string at a time. Only one lead to the key to pull out the tab for the sweets and goodies to fall out. So, I'll be passing this to my sister for her to organise her daughter's coming birthday party.
As there are boys and girls coming to the party, age ranging from 3 to 7 years, I had to prepare games to entertain all. So this is what I did in line with the party theme.
I've placed large 'majong' papers ontop of the children tables and brought out a big set of drawing pens/markets/crayons for those who like to draw to doodle on the table. It was quite nice to see the girls flocking to draw their art.
Here's the beyblade corner where my girl was stuck there with they boys. I had no idea why children here like it so much. They were all shouting 'I challenge you', 'I win' etc etc. For those who are as clueless as me as to what beyblade is, it is actually a modern-day spinning top toy. Some of the children brought their beyblade and there was an intense competitions among them throughout the whole party. As with all competitions, there was some tears and angry words but all soon was resolved.
This is another picture of the children playing the beyblade at the far corner and the girls doodling at the tables.
By the way, if you are thinking about ordering from Smiling Orchid, the Cupcake station is a hit with the kid. This is part of the kids tea menu. They provided cupcakes, cream and toppings. So the children had fun putting their own toppings and that brought some temporary peace as they queue up to decorate their cupcakes.
And how can I forget the birthday cake. It was really beautiful. We had a great time taking picture of it unless we tasted it. sigh. It was a tad too dry for my liking. I took the tiara from the cake and we had fun taking picture with it.
And lastly, birthday presents!
Happy birthday my darlings! Love you much much much : )
