Ni Hao Kai-Lan

Inspiration: Ni Hao Kai-Lan

Colour theme: red/aqua

Emilie’s 5th birthday party was a learning experience for me all around. I learned lessons in budgeting, prioritising, and time and project management…. all the hard way. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears (literally) went into this party and yet it didn’t turn out quite the way I had envisioned. Perhaps I am being a bit of a perfectionist but after so many months of planning it’s imperative to me that everything goes off without a hitch.

Yet, the party was still a smashing success. Why? Because everyone had a great time! The food, friends, and fun were unbeatable and even though my critical eye caught onto some party elements that I would have done differently, my guests were none the wiser and thoroughly enjoyed themselves — especially the birthday girl who gave me the best compliment of all:

“Mum, you are AMAZING!”
