Lucky Pinata!

I love a pinata! I find the store-bought ones are made of hard cardboard, they’re difficult to bust open, and they’re just no fun! If you have a few minutes a couple of days, they’re very simple to make and you’re left with a feeling of artistic accomplishment. For my son’s game-themed birthday this year, I decided to roll the dice and create this pinata.

Pokémon Birthday Party

Pokémon is all the rage in the grade 3 class this year. So our birthday theme was pretty easy to pick. My son chose to have a party at home, so I set about figuring out how to keep ten boys entertained.

Viking Birthday Party I Toothless Cake & Loot Bags

Continuing on with the Viking Birthday Party, I didn’t want to go completely over the top with the How to Train your Dragon theme, but including Toothless made my daughter extremely happy. Beautiful cakes are not as hard as you might imagine. Fondant is like making a cake with plasticine, armed with Youtube, a bit of time, and the proper tools, even aspiring cake decorators such as myself can pull one out of a hat. This cake took me 8.5 hours from start to finish.

Viking Training I Distressed Birthday Invitation

Hurray, it’s birthday time again! My daughter Calla is turning 9 and she always chooses a theme. This year she wanted it to be “How to Train Your Dragon” and have it at Laser Quest. I’m not a writer by trade, but I did have fun writing the copy. I’m sure however if you asked a real historian (sorry Dad) I’m sure they would take offence to my misappropriation of some words. My daughter loved it though, and I think that’s what matters most!
