Girls Birthday Party

Ella recently turned three and we therefore invited the girls from her kindergarten for a girls’ birthday party.
When you are used to throwing boys’ birthdays parties, with a high energy level and a lot of noise, it was a bit nerve -wracking to throw a quiet birthday party for five little girls. Which activities will they like? Will time go by at a snail’s pace? How will Ella handle sharing her toys? 

But all these worries were thankfully completely dispelled. The girls had a blast and Ella had the time of her life! 

One thing, however, I would recommend, is to keep it simple and to serve food that you know that most children will like.

Love Rosa
