The snow has melted, the post party mess is almost cleaned up (5 days later) and I am now mother to a 5 year old. Man. The Snow Princess party was a big hit. Piper and 15 of her friends enjoyed a wintry 35 degree, extremely humid morning playing games and eating treats.
The pergola was hung with paper lanterns, Christmas baubles, and strands of marshmallows to create a snowy wonderland.
We hid little prizes under layers of white fabric and cord for a game of pass the snowball.
And although the eskis of snow I had collected from the local ice rink the day before had formed into huge blocks of ice, the kids still had a ball on this very humid day making little snowman. Most of these Aussie kids hadn't yet experienced that. What a thrill.
The Snow Princess castle cake was made from a layer of icecream cake topped with a pavlova, fresh cream, white chocolate dipped waffle cones and marshmallows. I get a nastolgic sugar high just thinking about it.
I was so thrilled we could give our girl the wintery birthday she wanted. 35 degrees you say? Ha! You've got to do better than that mother nature.
Happy 5th Birthday Piper. We love you. x
