Isabella's 6th Birthday Play Date

We have just begun celebrations for Isabella's 6th birthday!
This year as Dan is going through chemotherapy we decided to do things a bit low key.
I'll admit it was a difficult decision for me because as most of you know birthdays are my 'thing'.
But, I am 'over' being disappointed.
We decided we were going to have a special day, a mummy daughter pedicure and then off to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D with 2 friends dressed up in our princess dresses, of course, followed by a sushi luncheon.
Well, the best laid plans often go astray, and so did ours...the cinema decided not to continue their run of the movie as it wasn't doing very well...so, plan B.

I very hurriedly gathered a few party props and food together to make a play date with the girls at home...amd so, here follows Isabella's 6th Birthday play date!

My pretty party girl all ready for her friends to arrive.

I found this balloon flower idea on Pinterest!
The dining room with just a little decoration.

3 good friends

Ready to bake cupcakes!

Kira ready to lick the spoons!

Ready to watch a movie!

 The decorated birthday cupcakes are ready! Good job girls!!

Happy Birthday Isabella!

And we're done!!

It might not have been the birthday party I was planning this year but the girls had a ball and I am pleased she got to spend it with her 2 best friends. In the end, that's all that matters isn't it?
