I’m not sure what I was thinking to have Charlotte’s party less than 20 hours after we flew back in from Cyprus! Her birthday is Sunday, which will be the first day back of term so I did want to do it over the holidays. It did mean that Clint only had a few hours to whip the cake up, I baked it and froze it before we left (thanks for the tip Liz). Clint wasn’t as happy with it as he has been with past cakes but for 9pm the night before then finishing off at 6m before work the next day I think it is a great effort.
Being unsure about the weather (last year it was over 40 degrees on her birthday) I wanted an inside venue, that along with her love of all things chocolate lead me to the Chocolate gallery at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.
Although some of her friends were still traveling, she had 6 guests plus Lachie and herself and had an absolute ball. After opening her presents they decorated cookies with lots of icing and other chocolate goodies.
While waiting for the next activity, La’s showed how much she takes after Aunty Fi having a very in-depth conversation with her friend about SHOES!
After cookies it was out for party games
Then it was time for food. They had pizza’s followed by chocolate fondue for dessert.
After filling up on chocolate, it was time for a chocolate hunt and more party games
Finally time for cake
Having filled the kids with lots of sugar, they all headed home with their iced cookies and lots of chocolate and some prizes from the Gallery. Then it was off to rugby for Clint and Lachs and home for a bath and bed for Charlotte. Only 2 days till she turns 5, will post then!
