Lockdown Party

Covid 19 Party

Our Tommy turned six at the end of April and with New Zealand’s Covid-19 lockdown we couldn’t have a party with Tommy’s friends. We decided to have a little fun with a Covid-19 colour scheme and ‘Lockdown’ theme. I’d seen cool ‘Quarantine’ digital download printables at Print and Party. Our lovely neighbours helped out with some contactless printing and the party prep began. Daddy baked an awesome number 6 cake and we crafted some party hats. We found some streamers and balloons in our left over party bits and while doing our groceries at Countdown we discovered a few extra party items. We organised Tommy’s classmates to attend a ‘Zoom’ meeting to say hi to Tommy and join us to sing Happy Birthday.

Tommy asked for a watch and a blue umbrella for his birthday. We could only shop for essential items so his watch is on hold for now but luckily we found the perfect blue umbrella at Countdown. Tommy requested Cheezels and Twisties to be on his party menu so we made sure he had a good supply of these. Tommy’s dimples shone and together as a family (and with some virtual friends) we celebrated this historic birthday.

Watermelon Slumber Party

Watermelon Slumber Party

Our gorgeous girl Rosa is 8! One of Rosa’s favourite foods is fruit so a Watermelon themed party was a fun idea for her. She invited three special friends for a sleepover. As you could imagine they had a blast. Watermelon craft, lounging in the spa, nail painting, temporary tattoos, spotlight game, chocolate eating game, bouncing on the trampoline, movie with popcorn and plenty of giggling. After all of this they settled into their teepees for a night of watermelon dreaming together.

Our favourite Watermelon Party details are:

* watermelon themed teepees styled by Slumber Style Christchurch,
* matching watermelon skirts from Cadenza Bella,
* the coolest watermelon piñata from Build-a-Birthday,
