The 7th Birthday report

So the Princess turned 7 on the 11th of January and as she really wanted, for once, to have her party on her actual birthday we agreed to a small Spur party with friends. She wanted a camp out 70's party at home with a sleepover but we felt they were too young for that - so we bribed with the Spur - to which she agreed BUT she still wanted her flower power 70's theme regardless. So we made a tie -dye shirt for every little girl to wear to the party and attached the invitation to it.

For her I made some extra items for a total tie-dye outfit. (BTW anyone wants a tutorial?)

The cake was a giant cupcake with all flower power type things (see here) and I made paper table cloths for the theme.

Every girl got a little tub with beads and flowers to string, which started with huge enthusiasm but was abandoned by all to play with abandon.

So there was a fun filled afternoon with burgers, ice cream and blowing the candles of the cake.
And she loved every moment of it!

 And the best about the party? Mommy (also sporting a tie-dye Tshirt)sat and chatted! So relaxed.
And my two cousins took the photos for me so I really can not take credit for the above.

  1. Thanks for sharing this with us. What a great party indeed. Can see in the pictures she have enjoyed it much.

  2. yes please to the tutorial - LOVE the table cloth :)

    Gorgeous party - so 7's when you can start to relax, hey? :)

  3. Oh wow, you crafty mom you :)
    The idea of the tie dyed t-shirts as part of the invites is awesome. It looks like a fun party for a 7 year old! I'm glad you got to relax a bit, those are the best kind of parties for moms!

  4. I love seeing all your party details...beautiful, and so fun! I really love that you and A made tshirts for all the guests, ahead of time.

    And how utterly wonderful you got to relax a bit and enjoy it all! We just had our girls' third party last weekend...I really talked to myself beforehand, reminding myself to try to step back and enjoy, not just RUN. Relative to a room full of littles, I think I did a fair job, but some of it is still a blur. ;)

  5. I'm SO impressed!
    Gosh your small one really knows her own mind, doesn't she!
    And you did a fabulous job - mindboggling!

    I would have failed hopelessly as a mom in this era ;-)
    Ask someone of my generation what children's parties were like in those days
    You'll be amused, I think . . .

    Happy birthday to the beautiful Princess
