Lily and Stella’s joint birthday party



Lily’s and Stella’s birthdays are just two days apart. Every year we’ve given them joint birthday parties plus smaller individual celebrations at school. This year, we decided on just one party, a joint one. As usual, I procrastinated. I planned everything in 10 days. Yikes. Needless to say, this isn’t one of those huge theme parties.

Lucky that my tried and tested party planner, Events By Daisy, was available and ready with ideas. The challenge was to come up with a party that had very little decor (I didn’t want to spend on decor, haha) but reflected the themes that each girl wanted. Stella wanted a fairy party and Lily wanted a fairy tale. We also didn’t want a major production or show because this was to be a small party with just 20 children – cousins, neighbours and a few friends. I handled the giveaways myself – tote bags filled with snacks and useful goodies plus the two Booths Republic. Everything else was from Events by Daisy.


As always, the 3D Me booth was a big hit. Kids got their photo taken, and within minutes each kid got their face on a stuffed animal pen.

Another very useful and cute giveaway, iStickers. These are fancy and waterproof. Check iStickers in Facebook here.


I did away with designer and custom-made cakes. I just ordered from one of those chain bakeries. So Stella got her Pixie Hollow cake.


And Lily got her fairy tale princesses cake.


Kids always love balloon art.


We had a lovely party host who had the sweetest voice. She told stories and sang songs for the kids.


Age-appropriate games.


Events by Daisy took care of the prize buffet table!


Among the prizes are some books…


Magic wands…


And pixie dust.


Because it was snack time, we had very easy food. In addition to the fried chicken and kiddie spaghetti we had pizzas, burgers, fish fingers and two types of pasta.


A big plate of sushi. My kids love California Maki.


It’s amazing what a few balloons can do.


The princess and the fairy had so much fun. Their thank yous (letters, drawings and words) won’t stop.
