Party time!

We celebrated Alex’s birthday with a medieval-themed party on Sunday, November 1st.

Here was the sign that hung on our door….

I loved this fun foam castle find from Oriental Trading. I cheated slightly by using a box recipe for the cupcakes. 😉

Claudio made two pots of chili (one vegetarian & one with meat). I planned a few activities for the kids, and we all enjoyed cupcakes after singing “happy birthday”.

Are these two not the cutest!?!

Here the kids were playing Pass the Parcel, one of our favorite UK party traditions.

They were very concentrated on making crowns and embellishing them with stickers and jewels.

It was the first time we had a little get together at our apartment, so after this inauguration where everything went smoothly, we look forward to hosting more.

And last, but definitely not least, a sweet envelope from his bestie!
