Stars and Stripes Party!

This year Chloe had a traditional party at home with friends, for her 8th birthday.  Not British traditional, however, as she loves the Stars and Stripes theme.Handmade party bags were used for a treasure hunt.  The brown paper bags were hidden and the children followed fabric clues to find each treasure bag.The garden and house were decorated with paper lanterns to match the theme. Entertainment came in the form of craft activities.  The first craft was decorating MDF stars which had been spray painted in preparation.The second craft was tissue paper pom poms.  So simple to make and great fun with washi tape decorating the handles.Party games and lots of dancing was also part of the entertainment.All followed by party food of fresh vegetable dips, burgers and hot dogs, popcorn, Oreos, marshmallows and jelly topped off with birthday cake.Chalk drawn stars on an outside wall made a great backdrop for some photos of the birthday girl.x
