Yes you’re not reading it incorrectly and no, it’s not a typo. I’ve already starting researching themes for Emma’s 4th birthday party, which is in May next year.

Call me bored, insane, over enthusiastic or sad but I love PARTY PLANNING. I think I should be a party planner in my next life. Sadly I have no idea what a budget is and what one’s supposed to do with it.

As far as themes go, I prefer going with a more ‘generic’ theme which incorporates colours and decor as opposed to a specific character.

Emma’s first birthday was a Hello Kitty themed get-together. Because it was a very small gathering with friends and family I did very little (yes I’m not always over the top) with a Hello Kitty pinata, plates, cups and a few treats.

Birthday number two was a Dora the Explorer party and I got one of those party companies to do everything. Emma loved it, but it’s not about Emma is it? It felt a bit mass-produced for me with no personal touches.

Birthday number three was a labour of love, with a theme based on ‘woodlands’ and I did everything, with the help of Danielle from Moemas and it was awesome. I loved it! And that’s what matters.

So birthday number 4 I’ve decided is an ICE CREAM party and I’ve already spotted little goodies I can make for the event.

This particular party was for twins turning five, so I’ll have to adapt things accordingly for Emma’s. Below are some pics…

Now I need to go and make a phone call to book a venue. Excuse me please!

  1. What an awesome idea for a “theme”! You can really go all out with this and have “Chico the Clown” ice-cream snacks too (Marie biscuits, smarties, marshmallows, etc)…

    Shout if you need help! I'm one heck of a party planner!

  2. Love it! I just started planning Jaes 4th bday in Feb. Going with a fairy picnic in the park. Not Tinkerbelle but pretty little fairies……. Will let you know if I see anything Ice Creamy…..

  3. I love it. I'm exactly the same Mel, my daughter's birthday is in April, turning 8, so its a bit of a challenge for me. My son's is in June, turning 2 and I booked the venue already. I am an over planner.
