Scarlett’s 10th Birthday Party

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!!

We invited her friends for the celebrations with these hand-made invitations I designed and printed using photoshop and stamped with these Stampin’ Up sets: Kimono Kids & Elements of Style.

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.asian style food at ten year old girl birthday partyfresh sushi from rainbow restaurant in oxbow saskatchewan

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.
