Alex’s 6th Birthday
Well, when we heard the theme of this lucky girls 6th Birthday, I didn’t know who was more excited – us or her! After meeting Julia and Denis from Quoin Rock in Stellenbosch to discuss their daughter Alex’ Trolls themed birthday party, we could not wait to get stuck in and start making all the gorgeous arts and crafts goodies we had up our sleeves….
We had a secret weapon during the planning process in the form of our very own 6yr old, Cheri’s daughter, who oversaw all elements and signed off (after a test run or two) with thumbs up!
The theme gave us a myriad of ideas to play with and a great Playlist to work from too! Taking place at Towerbosch venue at Knorhoek, we decided to use the entire span of the gorgeous lawn area, and were blessed with the most beautiful, sunny day.
Creating a Troll’s environment from the get-go, we placed a massive 2,5m hand-made Paper Flower Backdrop at the entrance with a Trolls sign dripping in glitter! This welcomed friends to the party in true Trolls form. On arrival, each of Alex’s special friends picked out their favourite Troll Hair Alice Band and Trolls character Mask – as did some of the parents! With their out-fits on point, we were all ready and set for a fun-filled day… Everyone knows you have to have a Jumping Castle at a kids party. So given the theme we setup a larger than life mushroom one which immediately became a hide out on the day and hours of fun!
We created freestanding Paper Flower Faces which ‘grew’ from all corners of the garden and a hand-painted life-size Trolls cut-out which stood ready as a photo booth for the mini-trolls to enjoy all day long. As Alex was all about Princess Poppy of all the Trolls, we decided on Poppy-style entertainment for the kids in the form of a personalised Scrap Book Bar where each friend got their very own custom made Scrap Book with their name on the front cover, paired with a shiny Troll themed Sticker Sheet. Hours of fun was had here as friends used the other arts and crafts items to create masterpieces in their take-home books.
The Glitter Science Station was also a huge hit for all – including some of the parents! Goggles in place, plastic coats and gloves on and ready to make slime, the kids created their own glitter slime with mounds of glitter, food colouring and most of all, fun!
Being a beautiful sunny day, kids also took some time to hop in the swimming pool and cool off. Interspersed with a trip or two to the vast custom candy station for handfuls of sugary fun throughout the day.
With all of the excitement and being a long day, we needed to make sure that kids could sit down and take a breather every now and then, and what better way to encourage this than with Chill out TeePee’s?? Packed with books and pillows, Kids could enjoy some down time to relax.
Ending the day by blowing out all six candles on top of her Trolls-themed birthday cake, the birthday girl said good bye to her friends, after they had filled their gift packs with sweets and their scrapbooks, taking a keep-sake and memory home with them as they waved goodbye!
