Contrary to my expectation and plan, I am writing this post quite late. This is about my beautiful daughter Saba turning 10. Her birth date is actually on the 11th of April but because the schools were off for the Easter break, we grabbed the opportunity and celebrated it on the 7th.
I kinda like doing themed parties and this time it was easy to pick because of Easter.
I was very excited to do the decoration and party favors. I always try to keep things simple and beautiful. I have kept my home decor every subtle and monotoned so that I can blast it with colors on different occasions and it will never look over the top and this way the decorations would stand out instead of just blending into the background or disappearing. Anyway, let’s forget about my home design ideas 💡 this post is about Saba’s birthday party, right?
For favors, I bought little blue and pink plant pots and some cute stick-on bows from IKEA.
Girls are often attracted to jewelry so I bought little character necklaces and put them in pastel colored cardboard boxes from IKEA.
I adorned the pot with the bow, added 1 necklace box, 1 box of jelly, and filled the rest of the space with chocolate eggs.
Saba likes unicorns so I had that in mind and as I said earlier, I don’t like too much decoration, I believe things like party favors, food, plates etc should be attractive and colorful enough to serve as decorations themselves.
I only bought some silly smiley and unicorn helium balloons 🎈 and voila!!! them, with party favor pots made a beautiful sight. Here are infinite photos of the setup:
For party games, Easter Hunt was an apparent choice. I filled some plastic egg shells with chocolates, ready to be hunted on the day.
Another one was making birthday cards for the birthday girl and the birthday girl to choose the winner of the best card.
Third game was pass the parcel. The parcel was however, not the real-many-layered parcel but just a cushion!
It was easy to decide the cake – unicorn cake 🦄 🎂 For food I wanted to keep a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. There were cheese pops, margarita pizzas, chocolate rice crispy nests, cheese twists and chicken nuggets served with juice.
Party Time! 🎉
The party started at 11am and everyone was on time 😀 I hid all the Easter Eggs around the house and garden. Girls were super excited to search for them. I must say, they all were very interested in all the activities we did that day!
After this was the card making competition. Girls did a brilliant job and made beautiful cards for Saba.
This was followed by pass the parcel.
The winner of each of these games was given a special Easter hamper full of Easter goodies.
Then came the party highlight; the cake cutting!
At the end was food, which everyone enjoyed.
Some parents stayed for a while before taking the kids and enjoyed a coffee or juice and some chit chat before leaving.
We had a great time with all the parents and I hope that children enjoyed themselves! We appreciate the beautiful and thoughtful gifts received, Saba loved them ❤️
