If you have been an avid follower of my blog for the last few years, you may be expecting a party around this time of the year. And in previous years you would have been right....but not now.
Because after the Pokemon party last year, my eldest kidlet requested her next birthday party be out of the house...with no theme. NO THEME! What's the point of being a mother if you can't throw more and more extravagant parties, where you spend at least six months before creating a Pinterest board. See here and here and here etc
So, I took a deep breath, put aside my own desires and needs and put my child first. (Arggh it was hard!)
We booked a party at the local climbing wall and all I needed to take along was a cake and party bags.
It was actually quite enjoyable, we sipped tea and chatted while young fit assistants kept up with the kidlets.
I thought I would take a little trawl through some of the past parties to mark this momentous occasion.
I can't remember what I made for year one, but this 2nd birthday cake leaves alot to be desired. Obviously created before I had discovered crumb coating and smoothers! Also I was heavily pregnant so probably had no clue as to what I was doing through the tears!
Years three and four seem to lost in the mists of time. But for five we had a princess castle cake and a princess craft party
A particular favourite, the book party
Last year's Pokemon cooking party
So this year, no dessert table but I couldn't not make a cake. The rabbit is a model of kidlet's favourite toy.
Fortunately my littlest kidlet has already planned a cowgirl party in September...bring it on, YeeHa!
