Haven’t we all seen, hosted and been at enough Dora, and Sponge Bob Parties? You gotta love a kid that comes up with their own original theme. My little friend Alessia requested a Rainbow Elves Party for her fifth birthday. Now, you can’t go to Party City and just buy your rainbow elves party paraphernalia, you’ve got to get a little creative. Her parents did an amazing job.
We arrived to a beautiful lunch, with a rainbow themed table, rainbow paper lanterns,and rainbow balloons.
For lunch there was a cute rainbow veggies and dip platter.
We also had sliders and fries. I love the way they presented the fries for the kids in these cute little wooden cones.
Over at the adult table we had the souped-up version of the sliders with aioli, swiss cheese and mushrooms -they were so good!
The fries were in these cute stands, with ketchup or aioli for dipping.
We had this along with cheese and crackers, home made guacamole and chips, and caesar salad. It was all delicious. After lunch it was time to head on over to the “Rainbow Elves Workshop” for a little fun.
We got warmed up with some elf races. This involved holding your ankles while trying to run to the finish line. It was very, very cute, and very, very giggly! The next activity was making our own elf booties.
I think Nona might have had a hand in stitching up these cute rainbow elf booties. Each pair was made from two different colours of felt. They were open at the bottom so you wouldn’t slip in them, and had elastic at the back to fit easily over a foot or shoe. They were so cute and the kids had so much fun decorating them with glitter glue, fabric markers, buttons and stick-on rhinestones and gems. Here’s the birthday girl working away on hers.
While the shoes dried it was time for a little elf singing. Alessia’s mom, Luciana, came up with the cutest elf song, sung to the tune of “5 Green and Speckled Frogs”.
And then, the party really got going when Luciana brought out the instruments -elf jam in the house! Can I get a woo-woo?
Next it was time to get our elf ears on and sing to the birthday girl. Alessia’s Dad, Danilo, made the fun hats on the computer. Love the elf ears, notice some were brown too. Too cute. Here’s Alessia’s little brother, and my little elf modelling their hats and ears.
The birthday cake was awesome.
Alessia’s Aunt Tiziana made the sweet little elves out of polymer clay in Italy and sent them all the way over to Canada for the party. The elves really looked like fondant, but this way Alessia can keep them and play with them after the party, such a great idea.
After cake it was time for a quieter activity before home time, a little elf colouring. Luciana printed out some cute elfish colouring sheets, and the kids enjoying colouring and giggling.
The kids went home with sweet rainbow loot bags, filled with rainbow goodies in the cutest rainbow zippered pouches. (This post might get the award for using the word cute, and variations there of the most times ever, but how else can you describe little rainbow elves, they’re just so cute.) 😉
Happy Birthday Alessia, and thanks for letting me come to your party with my camera. We had a great time. Sometimes life really is a party, a rainbow elves birthday party!
