I know every Mom says it, but it’s hard to believe Scarlett has turned TEN years old!!! In our house there’s an a rule that each child gets 10 birthday parties, so with this being Scarlett’s last big party with friends, we decided to go out with a BANG!!
Scarlett set up the table recalling her favourite way to dine out for Asian cuisine, sitting with pillows on the floor.
My collection of panda bears from when I was a child came in very handy to add to the theme of the party.
My Mom gathered up the collection and brought it over along with a beautiful Oriental fan that used to adorn the walls of her house.
We served Asian cuisine from all three of the local restaurants we currently have in town: CK Cafe, D’Barrios and newest sushi restaurant Rainbow Cafe.
Almost all of the girls tried the sushi, but only two liked it.
For birthday cake, I prepared these panda cupcakes and used candy eyes and mini Oreo cookies for the ears.
Make a WISH!!!
In addition to the cupcakes, the girls enjoyed the candy sushi Scarlett & I made earlier using this tutorial. Needless to say, the girls LOVED this version of sushi!! We had a hard time tracking down the swedish fish candies in our small town, but my Aunt Michelle came thru for us and dropped some off just in time for the party.
I had a blast hosting this party for some amazing girls!
And no party is complete without some goofing around…hoping they can look back on this one and laugh in a few years.
