7th Birthday Easter Party

Bella turned 7 last week.  This year her birthday clashed with Easter so I thought the logical thing to do was create an Easter theme.  We had games like an "egg" and spoon race and of course an Easter egg hunt.  We also had a DIY Easter basket station where the kids designed their own bags to collect the eggs.  This gave us times to hide the eggs whilst they were occupied!  As this was the first party held at Bella's new school with new friends, I really didn't want to go overboard so I kept the decorations simple but effective.

Yummy hot cross buns with my version of a cross

Vanilla cupcakes with strawberry and rose water butter cream icing

Hand dyed eggs for the egg & spoon race

Mixed lolly jars (as if they needed any extra sugar!!)
