Parties have been sort of easy to pull off in recent years. Once I realized how to farm them out, we did. We ran the circuit of indoor bounce houses, bowling and laser tag locations. This year Braden said he wanted to have a home movie night party. I told him to let me know what the theme was going to be and after a few days passed, he said wanted an Egyptian themed party honoring the first female pharaoh Hatsheput.
Oooooookay then and how do you even spell that?
By the time I got all that information together I realized that I had to get the invites out that day.
I didn’t have time to do anything really unique with these other than use my mad Word skills and send out by email.
You know what you don’t get at a party store?
Egyptian themed decorations.
I knew that I needed a focal point and decided on a large painting as a backdrop.
I found this picture and decided I could take elements from it.
Food buffet bars are really popular on Pinterest right now. I went with a popcorn bar for the party.
As for the table, thank all the Egypt mummies that we saved this playmobil set that he got years ago.
I used burlap as the tablecloth. Being wrinkled made it sort of look like sand.
As for the cake, I started out wanting to do a king tut cake. Then I thought I’d do a pyramid cake.
Honestly, when it came down to it, I sort of ran out of time and ended up dialing it in with a Nile river cake.
Not my best work but you know what? That’s ok too.
I really had a fun time with this theme. My other son has a June birthday. I’m rooting for a carnival party……I guess we’ll see!
