I love birthday parties, we’ve done practically everything over the years, bouncy castle, pool party, playcentre, karaoke, face painting. With having five children I’ve had chance to experience a lot.
I like to get in on the action, only once have I hired someone to do the party for me. However, now having three littlies with birthdays just weeks apart (and with me not getting any younger) I’m finding it all a little harder and any help is welcome.
For Boo’s 6th birthday last weekend I had help in the form of a Mega Princess Adventure Puzzle Party from Tall Tales Puzzle Parties.
I invited ten children but not all turned up, that is, sadly, quite common with parties held during the school holidays.
I usually end up spending weeks getting all the things I need sorted for a party like this but with the Puzzle Party Box I had everything I needed, I just had to sort food. The box comes with plates, dishes, cups, napkins, table cover, cupcake stand, banner, party bags, craft supplies, puzzles, prizes and sweets. Also there was a crown and sash for the party princess and badges for the guests.
This party comes with full instruction and taught me something I’ve not tried before. The party bags are handed out empty at the beginning and then sweets and gifts are added to the bags throughout the party so they go home full. Such a good idea and it really works, I’ll definitely do this again.
I made the cake myself. I tried to get it to fit into the theme of Puzzle Princess.

I was provided with a Mega Princess Party in a box for 10 children. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
That look so gorgeous! Happy 6th Birthday to your girl!
Thank you Eileen x
Fantastic! I'm so glad all the girls had a great time and I really love the crowns they made. Obviously I'm biased as I created the parties but your pictures really bring the party to life. And I absolutely love your cake.
Thank you Sara, your parties are a great idea x
Happy Birthday! your cakes look amazing! will dig out a birthday post to link up. Love the idea of your cakes linky as I love to find ideas online for cakes (even though i'm rubbish at making them!). xxx
Cakes are my passion/hobby people are always asking me to make them even though I don't think I'm that good, you should never underestimate yourself xx
Looks like lots of time spent on a great party. I add structure to the parties here too, easier to ensure everyone is included and happy that way.
Cake and parties, I think I could fill your linky single handed! Please do dump any posts of mine you are unhappy with.
Oh My Fiona, I've just been reading through your posts and the very thought of hosting for so many is terrifying! For once I'm happy my kids have birthdays in the summer holidays and hardly anyone turns up, lol xx
What a great linky and well timed for me x Thank you x

That's a pretty impressive Princess Cake! Love the contents of the box too, perfect for a princess party. 🙂 I've linked up my youngest's Angry Birds birthday cake post as I am quite sure it is the best cake I've ever made! I'm a little silly proud of it. 🙂
