A Bad Mother Throws a Party - The Finale


Well here it is the party table. I ended up being very slack and bought mini cupcakes and a mudcake, not wanting to battle with my oven I thought this would be the easiest way to go and the kids did not mind at all.

The lolly jars I picked up at Kmart and pirate themed them with Kit Kats as planks and Maltesers as Canon Balls, I got some white paper bags from the local craft shop for free (thankyou ladies) and used  little wooden pegs to close them. The little wrapped boxes were a thank you gift of chocolates for the parents.

The goodie bags were a big hit with bubbles, slinkys, bat & balls and stickers. I made treasure maps and hid some treasure chests in the backyard with chocolate gold coins in them which had the children running all over the place. And finally I served the fish shaped crumbed fish and chips in newspaper cones, easy for the kids to walk around with and no cleaning up later!

best mum ever is my bet for what your little one is thinking right now.
i know it's hard to put heartless and mean comments others say aside but i hope the joy and excitement had by all the kids at the party, especially your own, went a long way to helping.
definitely better to save the special for when they can appreciate it i say.
