When your two year old turns three do they graduate from a toddler to a preschooler?
Or should that be a threenager? (Read my previous post all about threenagers here!)
Miss M has graduated from Peppa Pig to Ben and Holly. Hence the theme for her mini 3rd birthday party. We kept it super small and low key this year because we have Little Man, but also a big party with all the fuss is not really for her. We had a lovely family get together for her first birthday, and a big party with friends at Amalie's Play Space for her second.
Here's a little snap shot of how we celebrated this year. We tried to make her feel really special over a few days; her family party, enjoyed dad's day off together just the four of us, and a play date with a couple of friends on her actual birthday.
(I still ordered her invitations even though there were like 12 of us there)...
And no Miss M's name is not Maddison. This is just the example invitation...
Funny story about these invites... Turns out, out of all the Etsy stores world wide, I stumble upon Antionette who is also from Adelaide and recognised me from our years at the same dance school. Crazy!! Thanks for the lovely invites Anti xox
I added this cute little rhyme to our invites. Feel free to steal :)
WOW! M___ is turning 3!
Please come over to our place for morning tea.
Sunday 6th of March is the day
From 9:30 am for a play.
Big thanks to Miss M's amazing Auntie who is our regular family cake baker!
Earlier in the week Miss M and I had painted rocks to make these little 'Gaston' ladybugs. Everyone got to take one home :)
And we hired two of these awesome trucks from the Tea Tree Gully Toy Library to entertain Miss M and her cousin. (here's the link to their full range of party hire equipment).
Finally, later this month we're off to see Ben & Holly live on stage! Will report back...
|And here she is in her Princess Holly Tshirt! Her little cousin was matching dressed as Ben Elf!|
Happy birthday Miss M. You amaze us every day and you have come such a long way! You are such a beautiful girl.
Love Mum + Dad xox
