Mila’s 8 years-old Birthday party

At 8, the girls pretty much entertain themselves and they were all very sweet and got along nicely together but by the time, I had prepared 5 dishes, had a nice BBQ and a fair amount of wine, I was done ;-)  Kids Party – 5.30pm kick off – Games for everyone to get to know each other & have fun (musical chairs, pass the parcel, musical statues) – Paint your own t-shirt (my favourite part): I like doing things that are going to stimulate the kids’ mind and creativity so this was perfect!

Mila’s 7th Birthday party

This year, Mila didn’t want a themed Birthday party like last year’s Moustache party last so we went for a white & soft pink colour scheme. It was a gorgeous day! Food: pink lemonade, pink cupcakes, strawberry/raspberry fruit salad, white & pink marshmallows with little pink flags Mila and I made with Japanese masking tapes and the ‘famous’ chocolate cake which, I admit was the only homemade thing this time Party bags: Hello Kitty toothpaste, Bear Yo Yo, glittering glue stick and a pink pom pom Deco: Striped straws bought in New-Zealand last year.
