We had a little Miffy birthday party for Milla who turned seven. It was simple and fun – which was just what we needed with so much going on in our lives right now. And because it worked so well, I have have a new formula for pulling off a memorable birthday without the overwhelm:
- Hiring out for a statement cake. We had this simple but sweet Miffy cake made and it was well worth the price. (specially since we scrimped on the rest of the party decor).
- Use what you have around the house for the rest. Paper bags for bunny party favors, cardboard for a simple game of pin the bow on Miffy, milk and snacks.
- And balloons. Done and done.
We don’t usually do a lot of character themed parties around here but ever since my trip to Amsterdam, Milla has been talking about a Miffy birthday and she’s been so excited. I’m a long-time fan of Dick Bruna and his art and have been collecting his books before Milla was born. So this seemed the perfect theme to celebrate a favorite soon to be seven year old. And we had a lovely time.
