My sweet Mia... she has turned nine years old this year! And what a sweet birthday party she had. She wanted it to be about Peace. It was the perfect occasion for playing my favorite Beatles album! I remember listening to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on vinyl from my dad's music collection when I was a kid.
These doves remind me of Mia's Montessori preschool. They had a peace corner where when a child did something thoughtful for another person, they were invited to put a decoration on the peace tree.
I made a triple layer white chocolate lemon cake. That bright yellow peace sign is piped from fresh lemon curd, yummmm. It was tasty!
sweet little notes inside...
The girls had a blast playing a drama game. They split into two groups, and were given five household objects in a bag, and had to make a short play using those props. It was such fun! Even the quietest of children were squealing with laughter, shouting lines and running around. Their shows reminded me of slap stick comedy like The Three Stooges (just a touch less violent!) Play number one was called "Wake Up!..." and the second was "The Pirate Princess, the Pizza Delivery Man and the Dinosaur, A Love Story" Hilarious, really! Thanks to Daddy for suggesting the concept!
And we barely had enough time to start the jewelry making project. I put together glass beads and cute little dove charms to make bracelets.
Here is Vivienne's completed bracelet~
We put yummy chocolate earth balls in their tiny little favor bags. Oops, someone already ate all the earth balls... they were really cute. Chocolate goes quickly around here.
And I have to share the beautiful little wool doll that Mia's friend, Lily, made for her. Isn't she sweet?
This marks the finale for the birthday season in our house! (mine isn't until July, thank goodness...) Hooray for the birthday girl! I am so proud of my dear daughter.
Wishing you thoughts of peace, love and sweetness
