Birthday’s can be a really tricky to get right. I really like a good home party and have put together a list of things we recently did at my daughters 10th party. It was a huge success and we have had loads of requests for a repeat next year. The party lasted two hours and we filled the time perfectly.
Meet and greet over fruit cocktails.
We printed out a menu and the girls enjoyed mixing up their own drinks.
We provided plenty of juice and mixers for the cocktails.
We provided water play in the garden.
We had a water slide that you plug into the hose pipe. This provided endless fun. It was helped along by some washing-up liquid to make it extra slippery!
We ate party food.
After a few savoury snacks we provided all the ingredients for ice cream sundaes. The girls loved inventing their own desserts!
We served the ice creams in my vintage ice cream bowls and used a random selection of glasses too. The overall effect was beautiful and was appreciated by the girls. I think they noticed we trusted them with glass rather than the usual paper party bowls.
We had cake.
We ended with party bags and thank you biscuits.
The party bags contained a tatoo, bath confetti ( from a multi pack I split-up) and a few sweets. They looked great with some printed labelled attached – all put together by my daughter!
I will post separately about these biscuits – they were so easy and can be adapted for any occasion!
I can’t believe my Big Girl is 10. The time has flown by. The children are growing faster than the weeds in our garden.
