Let's celebrate turning 4 with a little sparkle!

So having left my design job many years back, I secretly or not so secretly love throwing my kids parties and spending weeks on the little details and trying to make as much of it myself.

Evie wanted a princess party and that is what she got. This was her little character below that I drew.

For each child I designed a little character that looked like them.

I made little fabric party bags. Each had a little tag with their name and character on.

I had found these gold stars on ebay so I added tulle and ribbon to the end to make princess wands.They also had some sparkly jewellery for dress up, a larger picture of their character and a glass pebble magnet again with them on it.

Pinterest helped me find a tutorial on tissue paper pompoms which we hung all over the garden.

The cake was a royal pink cushion with the glass slipper on it propping up Cinderella and Prince Charming Lalaloopsy dolls (E's favourite).

Ezra was a knight standing guard and only letting the guest list in. He was so in character !!

 We did face painting, dressing up in heels and jewels, making crowns and of course lots of eating yummy vegan treats.

Looking for a quiet birthday next year.....but we'll see.
