So this weekend was taken over with party planning / partying at my daughter’s ‘Little G’s’ 3rd birthday party. This was really her first ‘proper’ party with her friends (limited to 15!) in a local village hall. We booked the hall for 2 hours (which seemed long enough) and turned our thoughts to how we were going to fill this 2 hours…that’s when the party slowly evolved into the party of the ‘P’s!
My husband first hit upon the idea of hiring a puppet show and we were really lucky to find just such an entertainer living down the road from the village hall who could do a teddy show. P number 1 sorted!
P number 2 had to be the classic ‘Pass the Parcel’. This is when I discovered that stitch counters are not only useful for counting crocheted rows but also fabulous for noting how many layers you’ve made on pass the parcel!
P number 3 I borrowed. A wonderful multi-coloured play parachute for games for the children and mummy and daddies to join in with. Brilliant fun and I found loads of fabulous games to play from playparachutes.com
The cake! Well it had to be Peppa Pig of course – I swear we weren’t planning on all these P’s it just happened!
The last P I fell in love with! A beautiful multicoloured Piñata; but a non-violent one with pull strings for little ones! Little G and I had great fun filling it with streamers, gold coins and party blowers and it was a big hit with the kids when it opened and all the goodies fell out!
It was a fabulous party and we all definitely had lots of fun! But when the party was over and we’d taken all the decorations down; Little G didn’t want to leave!
