The Making of a Bikini Bottom Party Part 2

Here are more wonderful scenes from Laila's 7th birthday party. The whole event was orchestrated by my husband Jake, who took care of interviewing party suppliers, comparing costs, doing the food tasting and all. 

Because he did such a good job at it, I am secretly hoping he'd take on the responsibility of staging all the family parties until we're old and grey ;-) 

Jake woke up early that day to supervise the decor in the clubhouse.
Top: The pineapple balloons are so cute.
Bottom: Adult tables were set up in the pavilion while kiddie tables with Spongebob tablecloths were scattered around the swimming pool.
Jake arranged for an adult buffet, a kiddie buffet, a waffle cart, and an ice cream cart. We didn't get to eat much that day, as in all the other celebrations that we hosted. But the guests said they enjoyed all the meals.
A bubble show and a balloon drop (each balloon corresponds to a prize) were some of the activities in the party, as if swimming wasn't enough.
Speaking of swimming, each kid got a door prize of a water bazooka. Oh, to be a child!
Soakin' up on the success of the party.
Good job, Dad. I'm sure Laila won't forget this.

What a party!!! Looks like a lot of fun was had by all ... I only wish I lived near you so that I could have come too.

Oh my! Your husband sure is the events coordinator! That is some party! Do you do that every year for your girls, or is this a once off? It must have cost you a small fortunte (worth every penny, of course)!

Thanks, Lizeylou and Kymmie. This is a rare celebration. We just have simpler (much, much simpler) celebrations outside the 1st and 7th year.

What a great party!! Would your husband like to organize my husband's 50th because I'm sure I can't get that creative!

Wow! What a party! Is that your backyard? Unbelievable. Thanks for Rewinding. Love looking at other people's creative party ideas :-) x

Multiple Mum: Nope, it's our village clubhouse.
