Yesterday was a very windy day here in Melbourne. Perfect for kite flying!
Perfect for a kite themed birthday party for my gorgeously cheeky 3 year old nephew!
Delicious kite cupcakes made by none other than the highly talented Cathie!
The hit of the party - cones full of popcorn, or were they clouds?
The kite and cloud scrapbooking paper was a great find to easily bring the theme together. I'm a big fan of named drinks. Saves money and rubbish and kids like to take them home too. Also makes a healthy drink seem a little more fun. Lou had lots of healthy and fun party food available with falafel or beef burgers, egg & bacon pies, savoury rolls, sausage rolls, mini blueberry muffins, popcorn, fruit salad & yoghurt cups. Followed by a simple kite cake made, as per usual, by the birthday boy's Dad!
The kids decorated their own kites with stickers, textas and ribbons as a party activity*, then at the end of the party those who were interested trekked down to the park and flew our kites! For handmade kites - they were fantastic! The wind just picked them up with ease and even Frog (below, aged 2) could do it all on her own.
We all had such a fun day - thanks Lou!

* Lou got her kite making kits on the internet. Hopefully she'll read this post and put in the comments where she got them from, but she did say the same ones were available all over the web.
