It's a Jolly Holiday

I had asked the little miss a couple of months back whether she wanted to go to a theme park or if she wanted a birthday party and she chose the later, saying that she wanted to have cake with her friends.

And so the party planning began. She had been watching Mary Poppins any time she got the chance so I knew that a "Jolly Holiday" was in store for us.

Guests were greeted at the door by the mini Mary Poppins and a sign that said, "To Enter: You Think, You Wink, You Do a Double Blink, and Jump!

There were kites on the walls:

I attempted to create a tape measure but it ended up more like a growth chart where all the kids could see how they measured up:

With the help of my husband, we made a bunch of little black hats with daisies for the girls and grosgrain trimmed top hats for the boys:

We ate a carousel inspired cake:

It was a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day filled with fun games and friends!!

Happy 5th Birthday to my "Practically Perfect" little girl!

Wish I had an ounce of your creativity Miyo!
I love the pics of Dylann- one so in character and one with just pure joy on her face.
