I know this blog post is well over-due but things have been ridiculously busy lately! As most of you know I'm currently 5 months pregnant, Emilia started school this September and simultaneously turned four...and Eduardo starts nursery in April! So my life these past few months has been a blur of school runs, early mornings, prepping school lunches (usually at ridiculous hours of the night) and running around after two small humans with a bump. So I do apologise for my lack of posts and I hope you'll forgive my cliché excuse but sometimes life just gets in the way.
In the meantime I have been dying to share some of these beautiful photos from Emilia's 4th birthday with you guys! We celebrated by throwing her a Frozen themed party which was a huge success and both Emilia & Eduardo were talking about it for weeks afterwards. First of all here is a look at my favourite part of the whole celebration...the treat table!
What was also really lovely to see was the children's reactions to meeting Princess Anna and Queen Elsa at the party venue. I almost cried when they started to freak out in the car park as Anna waved excitedly at them from the window! They were both very shy in the beginning but quickly warmed up as they were made balloon animals and guests started to arrive.
The first half of the party was led by the entertainers, who were fantastic and somehow managed to hold the attention of all the children until lunch time. They performed magic tricks, played games, sang Frozen songs and got the birthday girl involved in their "magic" which of course she loved. Even Eduardo plucked up the courage to take part!
After the first half of activities it was lunch time and the spread looked incredible. Each child got a little bento style lunchbox full of Frozen themed goodies and the table display was absolutely beautiful. It was filled with pretend snow, glittering diamonds, pretty balloons and Emilia's name spelled out in letters along the table.
When it came to singing happy birthday and cutting the cake, things got a little cray cray as by this point, the children were all hyped up on sugar...hahaha!
The highlight of the party has to have been the snow machine...the looks on their faces when Elsa's magic really worked and it actually started snowing in the middle of "Let it Go" were just priceless. After that they all had a dance party, shoes were removed and general chaos ensued!
Emilia had a truly memorable and amazing 4th birthday party which we were so happy to be able to throw for her. Both she & Eduardo were totally bewitched by the entertainers and Eduardo didn't want to leave them behind...as Anna and Elsa were helping us carry the birthday presents back to the car he asked me whether Princess Anna could come home with us. It was such a magical experience for both children & it makes me really excited to get planning for Eduardo's birthday in April!
