Bub Turns 4

As with many childrens' birthday celebrations, Bub's has been ongoing now for what seems like forever. It started with her "at school" birthday, for which we made cupcakes to take to her class. She is only at preschool 3 days a week, so this had to be done the day before her birthday.

On her actual birthday, we had some friends over for dinner and used it as an excuse to eat delicious seafood (fresh tiger prawns - yum!). We had pre-baked 2 cakes, and the kids decorated them with edible sparkly paints until they looked almost inedible:

Today we hosted 20 energetic 4 year olds for her birthday party. We couldn't have asked for better weather (thank goodness) so they could run around outside and the house was not trashed as much as it otherwise would have been.

 About 60 mini cupcakes were baked and iced.

 This cake was made, a la the Womens Weekly retro kids cake book... They have cakes in there that I had for my own birthday parties as a child :-)

 Decorations were put up. This reminds me of a scene out of The Castle ;-)

 Party hats are a must at any birthday party.

20 tornadoes unleashed in the games room...

 There was also painting...

 And party games.

It was a very successful party. We are all now thoroughly exhausted!


  1. I know where you are coming from, wait until they turn 18! Trust me start a bank account now! hehe. G. x

  2. Looks like she had a great day!! We just had the same with my daughter's 3rd birthday. Childcare party last Saturday (childcare friends), zoo and dinner on Sunday (her actual birthday) and pizza in park with friends today. We are all partied out too!

  3. Wow! It certainly looks like it was a lot of fun and so colorful. I love the decorations you had outside, and it looks like the weather was nice to you as well :) Hope you've managed to 'recover' :)

  4. Belated happy birthday to your Bub!!!
    We had the same for my Bubba a few weeks ago. I still can't bring myself to sort through all the pics. And like you I was utterly exhausted by the end of the day.
