Two Days

The countdown is officially on – just two days till Mia’s party. The house is a trail of ready-to-go and half-organised. Yesterday was spent sanding and then oiling an old school desk which is Mia’s main gift, last night I lined it with paper and varnished the insides. It’s not a lot of fun trying to keep something that large hidden from a very curious 3 year old. She’s already marched out of the study with the stool I bought second hand waiting to be re-covered asking “whats this stool for?”, then did the same at Nana & Grandads, sneaking away then coming back with a Dora birthday card”who’s this for?”. She doesn’t seem to get the concept of not getting into things.

Yesterday I also made the party hats, something I was hoping to do with Mia but have just run out of time. I cut up some pink and blue cardboard (there are boys coming too), sewed on some roses (well, a Lei from the $2 shop I pulled apart), added some glue and finally some glitter. They’re bright, but they’re Rosy. The list is made for what I am baking and how I am going to achieve this across the next two days while also working – I think the answer may be very late nights. Balloons are ready to blow up, cookbooks are on standby, three, two, one..

    Oh those little rosy hats are totally awesome!!! Don’t forget you can go and buy a whole heap of ready made things like cupcakes and gingerbread men at the supermarket if you run out of time! Have a great time. x

    This is going to be a great party! The hats turned out great and I love the desk. I’m sure Mia will be thrilled! Good luck with all of the prep. I’m looking forward to seeing party pictures.
