She started to think about it and came up with the theme cats, because of her beloved "Warriors" book series (thanks Christy)! So over the last couple of weeks we've hunted and found cat ideas to incorporate into her party. We decorated the attic....slumber central and found a few key activity components. I set up a pizza station in the kitchen and they all rolled, pulled, and tossed their own dough and decorated their pizzas.
ier One on clearance and the girls each mixed their own ingredients and we popped them in the microwave. Amazing and very cool idea! The girls loved them, and they get to keep the mugs and a recipe!
lot's of whispering (sometimes louder than necessary, especially at 2 am).
Pleeease, we're playing...and please leave the left over popcorn, we're pretending it's mice. (more warrior cats play I assume). I'm getting ready to start making waffles and am certain that I'll need a nap later.
Lesson learned. It's so much fun to just do the birthday party thing at home, and let the kids play and be kids. I spent a total of $65 on this party and that also includes the first or second book of the series (depending on if each girl had started it yet) in their little goodie bag to go home with their mug, sun catcher and some Hello Kitty lip gloss. A simple party, can be simply perfect and an evening to remember!
