Turning 4

Our Poppet had her 4th birthday recently and, as you do these days when you’re 4, she had a “Frozen” party (now if you’re not up with the latest in children’s entertainment like me, you may have to click on the link to see what Frozen is all about!).

Luckily our Helen had some left over fabric from something “Frozen” she’d made for her Miss J, and there was enough for me to make a pillow casewhich was lined with purple spot fabric and then I crocheted the edges in purple (her other favourite colour – see below)

I’d also been gifted this sweet fabric and made a little dress for Poppet and lined it in her favourite colour, pink!and Ma had some books (which I forgot to photograph) wrapped in this sweet paperWe arrived early at the birthday party to have some time with Poppet (and keep her out of her parents’ hair while they finalised all the preparations!) and to give her our presents – which she loved!  Poppet was dressed in an Elsa tutu and looked so sweet.

I managed to get some pics before 13 very excited and exuberant children arrived, many of them dressed in character or their favourite character from another show or book.

Balloons floated on the ceilingthe little table and chairs were set out in the dining room and laden with food goodies (the big chairs were for the Mums and Dads)and the white chair at this end was very special, cos that was our Poppet’s chair and she was The Birthday Girl, so we were informed.and there was more food – for the adults A Very Special Visitor was due to attend the party and half way through “Elsa” (the main character of “Frozen”) arrived to squeals of delight!  We were blessed with a beautiful day and the children soon moved outside to play games and play on the trampoline in between.  Elsa held most of the children in thrall with her games but the best bit was the face painting that she did on each child and such a great job she did too.  Two little boys had come dressed as Batman and Elsa painted Batman masks on them, Poppet chose a butterfly, several other girls chose cats and another boy a tiger.  They were all expertly done and delighted the party goers.

Then it was time for The Cake – a “Frozen” cake of coursecomplete with snowflakes and Elsa!

We left soon after having thoroughly enjoyed our 4th Birthday Party experience (but grateful for the peace and quiet of the car!)

    Sounds like a wonderful time. We had a similar experience last year for my granddaughter, Frozen theme also. Great grandfather (my dad aged 85) has since stated that he’s now too old for birthday parties, they are just too full on. Doesn’t help that we have to travel from NE Tasmania to NW across roads of the like rarely seen on the mainland. However, they are precious occasions and great fun.
