This weekend we attended a wonderful birthday party for my niece's fifth birthday. Abby is such a creative little girl. She is both a tomboy and a girly girl. She loves to play dress up but can boss the boys around in style. My sister in law throws the best birthday party's for her children. This one was actually toned down a bit form the usual but it was still quite fantastic. The theme was a princess one so the cake was designed to look like a Disney Castle. It was gorgeous. It was capped with several Disney Princess's sitting in the turrets. It was almost too pretty to eat. I am glad we did eat it because it was delicious too. Aside from the usual party fare of cake, a small lunch buffet was served. Marybeth even had made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the shape of pumpkins. After lunch each child was presented with a pumpkin of their own to decorate. The table was strewn with assorted decorations such as paint, markers, pom poms, stickers, and feathers. The children had a great deal of fun designing fancy pumpkins. After clean up everyone marched outdoors to have their shot at striking the pinata. It was a lot of fun. Finally it was time for the presents. Abby was delighted at all the pretty clothes she received. She also was delighted to receive bunk beds for her baby dolls. What a fantastic party!

Oh my gosh, what a lucky niece you have. That sounds like such a fun party. I love to hear about parties that are creative and fun like that. My daughter will be 5 in January, I'll need to be thinking of what to do soon since the holidays take up so much time. Her birthday is actually on mine so my birthday will be full of pink princesses too!

The party sounded fun! I saw the cake, indeed it was a nice cake. That made me remember when i was a child..hehe. I am sure your nice was really happy of the party that her mom threw up for her. With all those games in the party I am pretty sure kids that attended the party really had a great time. It is really nice during your birthday because you'll recieve different kinds of gifts, especially in your younger years.
