Brave Birthday Party

Hailey’s birthday was back in October and I shared these pictures on my personal blog then.  But I thought they really fit more on this blog, so I decided to share them here too.  Hailey wanted a Brave themed birthday party at our house.  We have always had her parties at an outside venue so I was super nervous about having to actually do everything!  Here are the decorations we had:

The dining room all ready for the party. There were 10 kids coming to the party, plus Hailey.

The railing all decorated- the little blue things that are hanging down are the “wisps” from the movie.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and really wanted it for a decoration. I showed the idea to my mom and she thought she’d be able to do it. So, my parents came over the night before the party and put this up.

I love it!! We got lots of comments about this decoration!

The number 6 container was also a balloon holder. I made some extra containers with M&Ms and gave them to the closest guessers.

The birthday girl posing by one of the games- since Merida (the princess in Brave) loves archery, we had to have an archery tournament.

Another game- Pin the tail on Angus (Merida’s horse). My very talented mom also made this horse for the game.

Fruit on “arrows”

Marshmallow pops

Target cookies (also made by my mom).

The birthday cake

I don’t have a whole lot of pictures of the actual party to share because there are other children in the pictures and I’m just not comfortable posting them.

As the kids arrived, I greeted them at the door and then they went to the living room to listen to the story of Brave. We have the book on CD, so my mom was doing that with the kids while everyone arrived. When the story ended I had the kids go to the table for some lunch. After they finished eating they went back to the living room.

We played Pin the tail on Angus. The kids really seemed to enjoy it!

Next we played “Pass the Bear.” Since bears are a big part of the story we passed a bear around the circle and whoever was holding the bear when the music stopped was out. When we finished that we played the archery game.

Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday and eat some yummy cake.

After cake, Hailey opened up her gifts.

The kids made princess bracelets after the presents were done… there were a few boys there, so they made bracelets for their moms :-)

The party was definitely a success and Hailey had so much fun! The rest of the kids seemed to have a good time too. My parents were so helpful and it wouldn’t have turned out without all their help. That party ended at 2… then Rich and I cleaned up the house (while my parents went home to rest up after being in a house full of 6 year olds hahahaha) to get ready for the family party that was to start at 5pm. It was nice to do it all in one day, but also a little crazy!
