I am finally posting the pictures from Widget's Phineas and Ferb Birthday Party. It has taken me almost two months to get this post up and running, for some reason Blogger didn't like these pictures :( and wouldn't upload them for a couple of weeks. But now we are good to go, so without further ado, I give you a (slightly blurry) look into the 'Best Birthday Party Ever!' quoting one of the 5 year-olds that attended the fiesta.
But, before we start, do you want to see the invitations that got the ball rolling?
To start the party, we had a Pin the Tail on the Perry game (sorry, no pictures of us playing). You can see where I got the idea, and where to download the file to print your own.
Then we had a treasure hunt...actually we searched for "Bad Beard's Treasure." Each kid started the hunt with their very own Pirate hat.
The treasure map took them all around the house; first up to my craft room to find Perry tattoos, then to the subbasement for balloons...
Then back to the family room for the final treasure: gold coins...and to be cursed with Bad Beards! Well, our little pirates were actually cursed with awesome MUSTACHES instead. Stick-on mustaches are a lot easier to find then beards ;)
Even I was cursed! I think it's a good look, don't you?
Then I danced in the kitchen to some Phineas and Ferb songs (from the show) as the kids ate lunch. The Menu: Phineas and Ferb shaped Macaroni and Cheese, mini striped jello (Jeremy's favorite dessert) and carrots (for x-ray vision)...the Hubby happened to get this shot of me and Auntie M (who was a BIG help at the party!)
And for dessert? Who wants pie? Lilly doesn't like normal pies (apple, cherry, pumpkin, etc), but she loves Oreo pudding pie.
And then we passed out the Perry Inaction Figures to the kids while they waited for their parents to pick them up. Do you think the kids enjoyed their party favors?
Of course, we had all sorts of Phineas, Ferb, and Perry themed snacks, coloring books, and other paraphernalia all over the place---so parts of the party stuck around the house for weeks to come.
All in all, it was a great couple of hours and we got rave reviews from kids and parents alike :)
