K had her sixth birthday party today and decided she wanted a Tinkerbelle party, the fact she had 5 boys coming didn’t faze her at all! I decided to make it a Tinkerbelle and Pirates theme in order to please all.
Buster wanted a Peter Pan costume and wanted me to make it, I took the easy way out and ordered one on eBay- I didn’t get any pictures of him dressed up today.
K wanted the doll cake where the dress is the cake and a dolls body is stuck inside. I got a cheap doll from Poundland took off its clothes and legs (much to Busters disgust!)and plated the hair then used this as the starting point. I wanted to make leaves to cover the dress but realised I was running out of time so rather than add veins to the leaves cut them out and stuck them all on individually. The wings were made out of rice paper and I used edible glue to stick them on.
I made the boys bandannas and eye-patches out of a square piece of black material and black hat elastic ordered from Fabricland. I rolled them all up and added a pirates name to each- again I forgot to take photos of them being worn which the boys did for most of the party!
They also had wands which I made following another Pinterest link, I used ribbon in two colours doubled up and a wilton cookie stick. I only realised at the last minute I needed a glue gun but got round it by using a staple gun and covering the staples with stick on gems.
This morning I decided to google napkin folding as you do and found this link which showed lots of ways to try, I decided on folding mine to leave a pocket in which two straws could be fitted in – I know I should be taken away for tests!
To eat we had cupcakes, dairy and egg free cupcakes (the chocolate looking ones), sweets, crisps, hotdogs, top-hats, sandwiches and a watermelon pirate boat.
I also did the icecream in bun cases tip in the freezer but took them out and forgot about them so they melted too much!
For party bags everyone got to take home their fairy or pirate items and a cone of sweets tied with ribbon
K loved it and had a great time, got spoilt rotten as normal but was very well behaved as were all the children who came.
Happy Birthday K my precious little miracle.
