3rd ARTY-PARTY Birthday day

And here we are...already 3 years old. My little girl is getting older!!! And what a big step is in her development!it is completely a different child, I mean she understands much more, you can negotiate with her and arrange even sth-))) This year Karolina was waiting for her birthday a looooot. We have a calender for the year 2013 where for each month there are photos of us. November is devoted to her birthday with the pics from her 2nd birthday and her Date was marked with a sticker long time ago. So, we counted and waited...

Karolina helped me with some prepartions for decorations. We chose such theme as ARTY-PARTY for her 3rd birthday and I guess it was quite successful. My daughter loves painting, colouring, cutting out from the paper, making crafts, etc. In one word, the meaning of this party was not only about Art as painting, but Art as creation of something, creative work in general. And naturally all colours of rainbow were used to evoke such mood. Moreover we used not only balloons and swirls in decorations but also we cut out some paint spots from the colour paper and stuck Karolina's craft works which we made during the whole year. She was so excited in "decking" the room with them. After that I printed out the photos from our blog which showed how she was doing this or that craft.
Here you can see a piece of Art which is called "Aphrodite" by Theo Michael, our friend from Cyprus. I wanted to mention it on purpose that you can see his works, they are great!!!

In this picture you see our old work with Foot Print Giraffe Craft, exactly what I mentioned above
   






Invitations were made in quite easy way which look like that:
Even though we moved not so long ago to our new home, we managed to make some goos friends who joined us to share the celebration and it was really fun, in a small company but very cute and nice-)
The most focus was done on games, activities for kids, here are some of them:
1) kids made their hand prints for the memory and actually it served as a favor, thank you present as well. Karolina was the first and it was very "fat"-))) but the results of next participant were already better

2) our girls and fathers were asked to play together and stick the red nose of the clown to the correct place, a very well known and old game, but as usual makes everyone laugh
3) one of the funniest moment was the game with whipped cream and gummi letter-sweets. Kids and mummies should find the letters without help of hands and say a wish to Karolina which begins from the letter. Of course womens fantasy was all about cosmetics, perfum and jewellery-)))it was Top!!!

There were some other small games and you can without a doubt imagine how children room looked after that.

The cake was baked by me this time and guests told they liked it, hope its true,lol=)))


 Kids left quite happy and Karolina was glad to have such a nice company for her birthday! Of course we missed our friends from Cyprus, but thats why I want to post it and tell them that we were thinking about them!!!

P.S. Here you can see tired face of a birthday girl at the end of the party-))) Facepaiting was done by one of the child, good work, also art, isnt it?
