Both the girls love Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so they girls were ecstatic when I suggested it for the theme of Bubble’s 6th birthday party. They made me a list of all the sweets from the book that they wanted at the party and I did my best to fulfil the order.
We had everlasting gobstoppers, square sweets that look round, snozzberries, golden eggs, hair toffee and even chocolate river milk and fizzy lifting drinks!
The cake turned out pretty well too and was based on the infamous chocolate room inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, complete with chocolate river.
Party planning was all the easier this year too now that big sister is old enough and capable enough to outsource lots of the crafting to. She took care of all the food labels and door signs with her beautiful handwriting and attention to detail. I think they turned out really well.
Best of all Bubbles seemed to enjoy herself. She ate way too many sweets, drank way too much chocolate milk and had a lot of fun playing with her cousins.
