Last week was Ella’s fifth birthday party, which had a Wizard of Oz theme. She had a bit of an obsession with the book and movie for a while.

The kids at the party were all so incredibly well behaved. And I had to laugh, because every time we asked a question, they all raised their hands and when someone did something well, they all applauded. Credit goes to their teacher for that one.

I have so many blog posts to come:

How to make the piñata

Wizard of Oz birthday cake

Lessons on making a Wizard of Oz house with rainbow insides

Wizard of Oz take home party boxes

Yellow Brick Road take-home boxes

Face painting

Party food ideas and Wizard of Oz party entertainment

The thing is, I’m still recovering. I can confidently say it will be another five years until Ella’s next birthday party. Phew!

So stay tuned for the posts to come!

Do you have a theme for birthday parties? What themes have you gone with before?

OK, onto the important stuff now – how to win yourself some gifts for Christmas.

  1. I had an Alice in Wonderland themed 9 and a half birthday party 🙂 We made it 9 and a half because my birthday is 29 December and I was sick of always holding my party in the last week of school 🙂

    My sister had a Little Mermaid party 🙂

  2. What a great job! I tend to go with books for the theme. We’ve had The Hungry Caterpillar and The Cat in the Hat. Lots of fun.

      I would love to do a Cat in the Hat party, Laney. Ella is just mad for all the Dr Seuss books at the moment. Maybe just a small family cake next year…. 🙂

  3. That looks amazing! Oh that cake – I want some 🙂

      Hehe! Thanks Marissa! I’ve been a bit strategic with the photography of the outside of the cake because it was terribly wonky! I’m blaming the cyclone Dorothy’s house got caught up in! 😉

  4. That cake is just so awesome. I bet everyone loved it 🙂

      I loved the girls’ first birthday parties, Allison. They’re as much a celebration for the child as they are for the parent getting through that first year.
      I went all out with the cakes for Ella and Holly’s first. Which means it’s been hard to live up to ever since. LOL! 🙂
