Ariel Party!

The day Sophie has been waiting for FINALLY came. Her birthday! Well technically it isn't until the 25th but she doesn't know. We celebrated it with family and friends at an Ariel party. It was a big success and she loved it.

She invited 5 friends because she is turning 5! Aren't they all so cute?

The Party Plan
  • Ariel coloring pages . . . something to do while waiting for everyone to arrive
  • pass the shell (played like hot potato)
  • pin the crown on Ariel
  • crab walk races
  • presents
  • cake and ice cream
Sophie was very specific that she wanted pink Ariel cupcakes topped off with blue sprinkles to be like the ocean. We also made "ocean" water complete with swimming fish (blue kool-aid with swedish fish frozen in ice cubes). Sophie had a Ariel shirt to wear and we had an Ariel bubble blower. So much fun! And of course Sophie couldn't wait to open presents and she LOVED every single one of them.

The games were a hit although some were too shy to participate in all of them. I think the favorite among the group was Pin The Tail On Ariel. It is pretty funny to watch, and I am 100% sure there was NO peeking!!

What a fun party! Sophie is so grateful for all of her friends and family that came to celebrate her birthday with her. Thank you! Wow! I can't believe she is 5 years old. And Kindergarten starts tomorrow. Man she is growing up right before my eyes. Love you Sopher Bug!
