We celebrated Claire's birthday this weekend with a party. A few of her cute little friends from her church nursery class came to help make it special. I decided to go with a colorful theme & made homemade play dough for all the guests to take home.
Pizza & grapes for lunch with cupcakes & ice cream for dessert.
I sewed up quick little fabric bags & just tied them with strips of fabric in a contrasting color.
Inside the goody bags were the play dough, colorful gummy bears & a mardi gras bead necklace.
We made streamer bracelets with crepe paper & plastic bracelets. The kids were interested in these for about 2 minutes. They did a quick little parade through the house. Claire liked hers the best & wore it on her arm all the way up under her armpit, w/ her new fairy wings on, & ran around letting the wind blow her streamers back.
And colorful balloons all over the place. For running & throwing & getting in the way once all the guests arrived. :)
It's easy for me to get really stressed out when planning a kids birthday party and I wanted this one to be really laid back w/ no fuss. It was fun & Claire couldn't have been any happier. I'll call it a success.
