On the 08th June we held K’s 7th party and went with a Charlie and the chocolate party theme. Invites were a wonka bar with a golden ticket inside
I made sure that everyone knew it would be full of sweets and it was! we had:
two marshmallow sweet trees
a lolly tree
a flying saucer tree
a chocolate fountain
popcorn in paper cones
golden chocolate eggs
white chocolate and mallow treats
a jar of haribo balls (gobstoppers!)
2 jars of rainbow drops
a jar of skittles
a jar of mixed sweets
a plate of wonka bars (covered kitkats)
strawberries and grapes
I meant to do labels but ran out of time, I was also meant to have bubbles but the machine broke down! We had pin the cane on Willy Wonka, feed Augustus Gloop beanbags, and had sayings from the film and sweets up on the walls.
K loved her party and the fact we gave everyone small bags to fill with sweets as the party went on went down well. Everyone went home with a bag of sweets and a large swirled lollipop.
K dressed up as Veruca salt, Buster and his cousin as Ompha Lomphas, another cousin was Mike TV and I was Willie Wonka!
We had so much left over as many guests didn’t turn up on the day but this made for an easier party which we enjoyed a lot more!
My baby girl turned seven on Friday- I have no idea how time could have passed so quickly and hope the next seven don’t go in just as fast!
We had glorious sunshine last week and the day of K’s birthday was also her school sports day. As she has just moved schools three weeks ago we wondered how she would fit in. We shouldn’t have worried as she had a ball.
K had asked for a watch for her birthday and so we bought a pink one as requested and also bought her a new pink scooter. On waking up on Friday morning she came down ate breakfast and opened her presents. Then it was time for school where she got to stand up in assembly and everyone sang Happy Birthday and cheered –K loved this!
Then it was time for sports day where she ran with the biggest smile and her birthday badge attached to her t-shirt. After collecting a medal for participating she got to go home early. As her granny and aunts were not able to come to her birthday party the next day K and Cayden both went out for dinner with them before coming home and getting some sleep ready for the fun to start.
Saturday morning I blew up the paddling pool that had been sitting in the shed for the last year due to no sun! K and Buster both played while I got the party stuff ready to go.
