9 yr old turning 29!

when I asked my 8 year old what she wanted to do for her 9th birthday party she said 'I want an italian dinner party mum!'... 

ohhhh of course!!!?

part of me was excited about it but the other part was thinking what happened to the more traditional little girl parties that i am so used to...

nevertheless she was set on it so plans were made...the table was set to her chosen colour scheme (so particular!), i filled my big wooden paddle boards with home made pizza margarita & served a big steaming bowl of spaghetti bolognaise...

there was so much noise coming from our little dining room that i needed to refill my wine on several occasions to cope!

everything was devoured...and for dessert i served eton mess in small glass cups.

the plan to watch a movie after dinner was squashed & instead the 8 little ladies decided to do back flips in the lounge room to one direction on high volume...i needed yet another top up at this point!  

miss 9 year old had a brilliant dinner party!

Oh I just love it!!! I hope my little miss A (7) wants one of these parties... Although I think it may be another princess party :)
