Lego Friends Party

Here are some pics from Katies Lego Friends party...

Katie and Chloe painted the backdrop - its a colouring in image thats been made huge using the Rasterbator.com website

Of course a stage was a requirement for a pop star party!

.. and plenty Lego to play with!

The activity table was for microphone making using balloons and toilet rolls

The Lego Gummies were a huge hit! 
They were made using the following ingredients 
1 package of flavored Jello
3 packages of unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup of water

 One of the party favours were these

The Lego Crayons party favours were made by breaking up crayons in a silicone Lego mould and baking in the oven for 10 minutes at 100 Celsius

Another favour was the Party CD, it had Katy's favourite songs along with a few of her very own songs made with the Lego Friends Music maker app - highly recommended and free!

Lion Guard Party

Chloe had a Lion Guard party this year, here are some pics ...

Chloe and her friends painted the beautiful backdrop.. its a colouring image enlarged using the wonderful Rasterbator.com!

Nothing like a real life lion-dog at your Lion Guard party!

These Lion Guard Masks can be found online ...

And we had Zebra rides, thanks to a good paint job on Lucky ;)

Katherine turns 6 - Palace Pets Party

Well after all the fun at Chloe's Paw Patrol party in September, Katie insisted she wanted exactly the same party!! I eventually managed to persuade her to change themes but that was about it!

So, here is the resultant clone of Chloe's party, only with Palace Pets instead of Paw Patrol pups!

The poster once again came from Rasterbater- this one was huge! The 3 of us painted it in one afternoon though, and it came out really nicely. If you make one with kids, don't forget to go over the outlines in black thick pens after to neated it all up!

The tables were the same as Chloe's, except with different colours & laminated Palace Pet centre pieces submerged in pots of play dough 

The cake was great fun to make, the turrets were just stacks of biscuits. covered in fondant (the resultant texture looked just like bricks!). 
The turret tops were inverted sugar cones, and i pasted fondant tiles over these too and painted them gold (Heres how you do the tiles- http://www.boorooandtiggertoo.com/2015/01/make-magical-fairy-tale-castle-turrets-with-fondant-icing/). 
The rest was pretty straight forward ... thank Heavens Katie had the toy figurines already, it would have taken a lot longer to make those myself!

These masks were just printed directly from the Palace Pet online images, some of them were a bit off centre because it seems these pets only pose at an angle in every pic of them! It didnt phase the kids though - they loved the masks!
I also laminated and decorated each one with sticky glitter paper, to sparkle it all up.

And that was that, another fun theme despite not having any merchandise available locally!
