As Isabelle’s birthday falls in the middle of the long summer holiday, she always misses out on a birthday party as everyone is away. When we came back from the long break we promised Isabelle a party with her friends.
Her choice was to celebrate with a karaoke party and sleepover so we said that she could invite 10 of her closest friends over to enjoy singing to the latest pop songs and have 6 of them to stay for the night.
We had bought some wine glasses with jewels for the girls to bedazzle them. They also painted t-shirts and made bracelets. The lovely Phoebe came to do all the girls nails. So, while all the karaoke was going on in the living room, the girls rotated around all the other activities and managed to fill 2 hours very quickly!
More friends had lent us a box full of wigs and glasses which the girls absolutely loved! Made for great photo opportunities and all the girls really hammed it up for their friends and the camera.
The girls had fun getting Tetley involved!
Oliver was the judge of the Karaoke Sing Off and thanks to some side deals going on, Emma and Lia won! It was amazing when Owen announced the competition, how the girls started wheeling and dealing amongst themselves (best duets!) and also with Oliver!
Isabelle really enjoyed her party. Lots of girly stuff and I definitely got a sneak peak into teen years! After all the fun, it was time to wind down with a movie before lights out. “Princess Diaries” was the chosen movie which the girls watched while in bed.
All the girls were asleep by 11:00pm. They were all up early and then it was time for me to be a short order cook for breakfast requests before they all left.
