Angry Birds Party

Last weekend we had R's Angry Birds birthday party. The aim was to keep it simple, cheap and fun.

I didn't organize any party games and the boy's were happy enough running around, playing with R's toys and making up their own games. The time frame was 2 hours which gave them enough time to play and eat without anybody getting bored or going crazy (namely Phil and I - lets just say that I have a whole new level of respect for R's teacher).

As far as food went we had cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, chips, mini donuts, jelly and marshmallow pops - pretty much your standard party food.

For drinks, I opted for juice boxes and thought that it would be fun to use themed cups for the goody bags. I really like how they turned out. Everything fit nicely and I didn't feel like we were handing out half empty goody bags at the end of the party. The Angry Birds pens were a big hit.

For the cake, I contacted a lovely lady through facebook and she was happy to make the cake toppers for me. She did an exceptional job with them - you can check out her website here.

Everyone had a great time and R loved it which makes all the pre-party stress worth it. Even so, I don't think we'll be doing it again for at least a couple of years.

Sounds like a great party Fay! Brilliant cake too. But yes, that many kids running around your house for a couple of hours - makes you glad birthdays are only once a year!
