A month ago, Tigger said he wanted a Minecraft themed 6th birthday party. He then changed his mind to Ben 10, and then changed his mind again to superhero and then again to Minecraft. At this point I quickly locked down on it and went online to get an invitation.

Party Steps :
1. Make a guest list first :I quickly made a guest list which came to 20 kids.
2. Pick Venue : Royal Stables in Abu Dhabi is my favourite party destination in cooler weathers in Abu Dhabi.It is where we had my little sister’s baby shower also.
3. Date : Yes, pick the venue before the date to see if the venue is free, if it can pick kids etc. The party was going to be the day after his birthday as it just was more convenient for everybody.

The invitations turned out beautifully, and Tigger was super excited to hand them out. He gave them to his classmates, his teacher, his swimming coach, and so on. Suffice to say we had over 20 people at the party.

I will be posting more details of the party.

We went all out on the decoration. We had everything from a large red riding hood themed signage.

Gorgeous white chairs with bright red tie backs, and red table clothes with picnic style table runners. Red and teal lanterns and paper fans hanging down from the trees. And a grandma’s house that you can sort of see in the background.

Centrepieces that looked like tree stumps with white twigs that had crystals hung on them, and the red riding hood and the carriage leaning on it.

A Photo background where people could take selfies or fun pictures.

And finally a sweet table with the red riding hood and the carriage making an appearance on the teal background with color themed dessert.

The weather, the sunshine, and the amazing people that came made the day all the more special.

To people who don’t have sisters, sometimes its hard to explain what having a sister is like. Suffice to say i think that most times, it is THE BEST. And I should know, I have two.
My little sister is expecting her second baby soon and my big sister and I decided to throw her a baby shower.
If you didn’t already know, i LOVE planning parties. We were hard pressed to find a theme that would be feminine, but sort of fun too. My big sister picked teal and red as the colors, and as soon as i saw red, i thought it would be amazing to have a Red Riding Hood or to adapt it to the baby shower, Red Riding Carriage Theme.
This is a 5 part series. This is the invitation that we send out last week for the party. We loved how amazing the card turned out.
I am so excited about this series.
