My Sofia turned 5 (!!) and I must say she had a very cute and fun party...a butterfly one, packed with...butterflies!
It was so enjoyable preparing this one (well, always is), mainly because this time Sofia was old enough to help me and enjoy doing it.
She had 8 little friends for games, fun, craft and yummy cake and they all loved!
The day was beautiful outside which is very rare in May here in the island, so we took full advantage of this, and had loads of fun outside.
Butterflies...much more inside!
Our festive hallway
My ever present tissue pom poms (love them!!) were decorated with..butterflies, of course!
Nets for a fun time ahead..keep tuned...
yes, I cut lots of them ( oops, my Cricut did)!
Helium balloons with hanging paper butterflies made the playroom look so beautiful. I had plans for these cuties, as they would be released in the backyard by the kids at the end of the party, can you imagine the fun?
As soon as they arrived the little guests went to the table to decorate the paper table cloth with beautiful drawings only a child can make!
It turned out so nice that it will stay there for a while:0)
After they finished colouring, I covered the table with dollar store plastic table cloth and it was ready for craft time. A coffee filter butterfly. See here.
Now outside to more fun and games:
Play in the "green house"
Pin the butterfly to the flower
Punch for prizes!
Do not worry...yes, I cut 3000 of these cuties, but I cut from pre-cut tissue paper squares chunks in a package, sold at dollarama, so handy!
Believe me, there were 3000(!!) tissue paper butterflies flying in my backyard! yes, I am NUTS, handout...2 hours of work, 60 seconds of fun...but it was FUN! Meanwhile, hubby worried that they would fly to the neighbours house! haha cope with me, hubby! See here
This one is mine!
yummy cake made by mommy, not a baker at all but it turned all good, to my surprise!
The loot bags...cute suitcases for the girls and insect boxes for the boys
At the end everybody out again to release the balloons...have fun first playing with them of course!
This party was for you, my beautiful butterfly!
