Dear Frugal Mums,
This weekend has been an exciting one for our little lady, as we’ve had lots of fun celebrating her 7th birthday! It’s crazy that my smallest one is 7 already – it goes so fast! Lola had a brilliant day, and I crawled into bed about 8.30pm last night when the kids did! 😂
Her friends came in the morning for a paint-your-own party. I bought some jewellery boxes when they were half price at Hobbycraft for £2 each, and filled them with chocolate coins, a bracelet and a nail polish from Primark. They looked so cute filled with treasure and the girls loved them.
They were such a lovely age for that kind of party, and sat calmly chatting away whilst they painted. It was great fun, they then had a boogie with the disco light after lunch, before playing schools in Lola’s room. Lola adored all of her ‘school’ presents – I made her a lanyard, and we got her a whistle, a clipboard, a register and a whiteboard; it’s her favourite thing to play.
Later in the afternoon we had our family over, and she was spoilt again with lots of lovely things! My super nan made the most amazing mermaid cake – she is the designated cake lady in our family, and is so great at it! 😍
Lola had such a magical day, surrounded by her besties and our lovely family. We are shattered now; the rest of the weekend will be spent in pyjamas! 😂
