Well, Rebekah turned 7 over the weekend! I obviously must utter the proverbial, “Where does time go..?” As usual, Victoria has spent a good amount of time organising the party and everything just about fell into place a few minutes before everyone arrived.
This year we had a fairy theme and we started with the invite. I wrote a small story about how Garak the evil goblin was about to capture the Guardian of the Forest and that we needed help from Fairy children to either stop him or rescue the guardian. The children all turned up in Fairy costume and with fairy names. We started the party by reading them the next installment of the story and then taking them through the Golden Arch, which was temporarily located at the entrance of our garden, and into the world of the Dreamgate. Once in the garden the had to find the Ice Crystal that Garak had dropped in the Fairy Glen. This gave them a stone and a riddle on how to find the next puzzle and prize. They slowly made their way around the Hub solving puzzles and playing games, before being let loose on to the plains to find the dwarfs that were holding the guardian. By this stage they had the name of the guardian which they called out at one of the gates on the plains… to then enter through the gate and find a Unicorn Pinata which they could beat the shit out of to release all the sweet treasure!!!! Then back to the garden for fairy themed food.They also got lots of presents including a mothercare discount code for me which made me very happy 🙂
We were massivley lucky with the weather – it was beautiful all day! And the kids seemed to have a whale of a time.
We then rolled into a BBQ for the adults after the party. A good time all round.Birthday, Party, Fairy, Celebration, Cake, Unicorn, Pinata
