Maybe a little bit too festive?1 July , 2014
You may or may not be aware of this, but in general I like to plan only one social thing per weekend, and work in some rest and relax time into the rest of it where I can. However, some times the people who are having parties are just so special to you that you really can’t say no…and in my experience, once that happens it’s like the universe conspires to make a whole lot of these people have parties all on the same day and it develops into a what the hell, the more the merrier type of weekend.
O well…we need some of those too, don’t we? 😉 Let me walk you through the party that was our past weekend. Step by step.
First up, Lego party for our little cousin Justin in Pretoria.
Haha, I think he’s either trying to wink at me or pull a classic duck face? Either way, the little guy is definitely not camera shy! 🙂
The cake and the kiddies table.
This was in the morning, next up our Saturday afternoon party took us all the way back towards Honeydew for Morne’s 4th.
They have a lot of dogs on this plot, and this one is one of the biggest! Gandi is such a gentle giant though – I just barely managed to convince Nicola not to actually try and ride him like a horse.
Balloons…up, up and away!
This party was a Spiderman party – HUGE cake!
No selfies of me on Sunday morning, but I felt a bit worse than the first picture here shows. Being party animals is rough man! 😉
Next up was the Frozen party for Juane. ‘
And here is the birthday girl in Elsa dress along with her sister, getting make uped.
The venue is also a garden furniture and nursery set up. Nicola just loved it! I swear she made a point of sitting on every chair there and checking out every little sculpture and water feature along the way!
Shoes being lined up for a good watering…
Someone was running a slight fever and a complete lack of appetite on Saturday, but on Sunday she was definitely over it. This is the tail end of her SECOND hot dog for the afternoon!
And then one new experience taste wise for my pink terrorist : cotton candy! On every other occasion where I have presented it to her she has declared it disgusting and refused to eat it, but this time she really got into it after I explained that it melts on your tongue like a snow flake. Yesterday on our grocery run I even got convinced to buy some for home too. She’s definitely a big fan now!
This is us Sunday night…I was thoroughly exhausted!
Thanks to everybody who invited us to their parties, we had a ball – and we loved spending your big days with you all.
Ps! Next weekend we’re back to one though, and to make it even more exciting it’s a pajama party so we can roll out of bed and just rock up as is. I see sleeping in in my near future and I am ridiculously excited about it! 😀
