A blue birthday for Reuben....

Reuben turned 12 yesterday, and he requested a blue birthday.
We decided to do afternoon tea for all the kids in the street
and have one of his friends for a pizza dinner.
Simple and achievable.

We brought blue fanta and some blue plastic cups and plates and some serviettes.
I hate buying cups and plates to use once and throw away,
but they were blue, and it was Friday afternoon
and I decided just this once.

I found some amazing sparkly plastic type fabric for $2.50 a metre,
and brought enough to put on the table. It's such an amazing blue.
I made blue candied popcorn (popcorn + toffee)
There was just enough blue to look like a blue birthday.

We did splash out on an amazing cake.
He was thrilled to bits with it.

A notice on the street Facebook page
and hey presto, it's a party!

Oh and of course, bunting, don't forget the bunting.
In our house it's an instant party when you add bunting!!!
