Sorry, couldn’t resist. It really was a hoot, though. My fabulous niece Lauren (one of Pirate James’ lovely sisters) turned 5 and chose an owl themed party to celebrate with her family and friends on Saturday. And my clever sister-in-law Jo, fresh from the Pirate Party Extravaganza only two weeks ago, created another incredible party, with beautiful props and delicious food. Oh, and 1000 screaming little people. Ok, maybe not exactly 1000, but there were a LOT of excited girls and boys enjoying the party. Well, except for that little girl who started crying hysterically when her water balloon popped before the old school water balloon egg & spoon race even started. (Don’t worry, she recovered in time for the Musical Statues game.) Here are some pics from the festivities…
So there you have it – an owl party fit for one of my favourite people on the planet. The best storyteller I know, an incredible little lady with crazy curly hair, a brilliant sense of humour and fun, an amazing imagination, incredible energy and such a social butterfly.
Happy birthday, lovely Lauren. And well done to your amazingly clever Mum!

Looks amazing… I think the fairy bread made it though! :-), I love the cupcakes and cake fab!
Well, Nigella, AGAIN I say I think I want your sister-in-law for my mother. She creates the best looking parties (although what’s a party without fairy bread?)
and… it’s been a wee while since we’ve seen you in blog land. Hope you are just having an extended Easter break and all is cool at your end?
Very cute! love the cake!
