Happy Belated Birthday to Momo!
Momo turned four this month. While her birthday was on a Monday we didn't tell her because we weren't celebrating it for another week (and I wasn't ready to be asked a million times a day, for seven days "When's my party?!?") The plan was to have a bubble themed birthday party in the park, but Mother Nature wasn't having it!
Oh dear. And this was the first time EVER that I would be throwing a party with NO structure - no crafts, no games, no pinata....no nothing! Just bubbles and cake! (Pretty ballsy of me, I know!) I figured with the party being outside the kids would be content running around in the grass blowing bubbles, playing on the playground, etc. But nooooooooo. The rain was coming. For sure.
So....against my own wishes I held the party at our small apartment. Yes. Crazy. And we were expecting about 12 kids and their moms. *Breathe in. Breathe out.*
But guess what? It all worked out okay.....even in a small space, with no structure everyone had a great time! Unfortunately I didn't take nearly as many pics as I would have liked. Thank goodness that my BFF took some (and helped with the pizza.....and the favors.....and the balloons..... THANKS BFF!)
There was some pre-party dancing (Momo always dances to the Black Eyed Peas!):
A little glitter in the hair:
CAKE (from Costco, of course):
Lots of playing indoors due to the rain and mud outdoors:
Did I mention mud?
I didn't realize till after the fact that I never even took a picture of the "bubble bar" outside (under the overhang). Darn! :( But here's a pic of the party favors. Homemade bubble solution and ribbon wands:
Even if it didn't turn out the way I envisioned it Momo had a GREAT time...and that's what counts! :) When I asked what was the most favorite part of her party she said, "BUBBLES!"
Happy birthday, Momo! :)
