Party Like You Were Born in 1999!

Today was the big event - the most talked about party at school this week - Deanna's 10th birthday party!
She had all the girls in Grade 3/4 (there is only one girl in Grade 3) and Natasha, so 5 extra girls in total. It was fun! They made jewellery, played outside, had pizza for supper, played in Deanna's room (yes, all six of them - it was stuffy in there!) had a Goody Box hunt and went home... Phew!
Deanna had asked for a bird's nest cake, in keeping with her new bird obsession. A bundt pan, chocolate icing, some dollar store birds, pretzels and chocolate eggs, and voila! A birds nest cake!
The jewellery making supplies, and the crafty girls concentrating on their creations.
She got some nice gifts too - including a sewing machine! A little Singer, we'll try it out tomorrow and see what it can do!
Also a greenhouse kit, some coloring supplies and a hemp jewellery kit. Enough to keep her busy for a while again.
Time for cake!
I forgot to take a picture, but instead of goody bags, I picked up some cute little boxes at Dollarama ( I love that place!). Deanna used her card making supplies to put each girls initials on the top, and they had a cute little jewellery box to take their necklaces/earrings home in! There were some nice ones too:

And now, the house is quiet, the kids are (hopefully) all sleeping, I am going to finish my glass of wine and go to bed!
