Technology party

Posted by on Mai 6, 2007

The sign was on the door.


The room was decorated. (Alexander made the hot air balloon himself, and although we had made the planets over a year ago, we never hung them up, so Mr G decided to finally get them off the shelf)


The table was set.

The food was made.

A treasure hunt with 8 clues led us to the motor piñata (those are pistons and a hose) we had made and was hung on a tree. Not in this picture though.pinata

The kids were blindfolded and armed with a bat.


They ran for the candy.


Even the youngest gave it her best.

The kids were sent home with smiles on their faces, a bike bag and a car to remember it by.


It was a fun day, but boy am I ready to relax with some fiber.

Happy Birthday, my little 6-year-old!!

    What a delightfully thematic party! I’m a fan of the theme party, myself. It sounds like everyone had a wonderful time. The food is also fun looking, though, as a veggie, meat cutouts do little for me. 🙂

    That is so cute. I love seeing creative children’s birthday parties. The extra effort really leaves special memories. I hope he had a wonderful birthday.

    I like the cute playmobil people in the hot air balloon! And you and Alida in matching outfits. Cute, cute. And, you ARE good at this! I could never put on a party like that. And again, I think I started reading your blog 2 years ago! Is it possible? I remember his party being one of the first posts I read…

    That party is great! Wonderful idea. I’m not so great at that, but hopefully I’ll find some inspiration before the next one this summer.

    I just stumbled across your site via your purse organizer post. I, too, am an American crafting mommy living in Europe (France). We appear to have quite a bit in common, so I’ll surely be back.
