Party Photos

This has got to be the easiest party ever … laser strike = no stress = no planning = no mess = easy! (Okay so there was mess … but we left it there and some other nice person came and cleaned it up … not me!)

Generally speaking … I enjoy planning parties, I enjoy creating amazing themed party supplies, themed games, themed cakes and generally going all out in fun stuff. But this year I just didn’t have the inclination to do all that. So we went with a Strike party.

There was the briefing …


And the guns and vests …


And the little girl who wore a tutu all day today (even at Church) who found it glowed in the dark really, really well.


And a Mum who had a great time playing with camera settings and capturing cool shots of lights and kids shooting each other.


And a rather excited 8 year old who couldn’t believe his luck … all that coke was for him and his friends to drink.


And of course … cake and candles too.


The only creative thing I did was a bit of last minute inspiration to stamp on some brown paper bags just to dress up the standard goodie bags a bit … oh and that sign on the front of the cake which I cut with my nestabilities to cover up the gap where the cake trim didn’t quite reach all the way round the cake.

So all in all a successful party and a happy big 8 year old having fabulous dreams tonight.
