    I know I have like 4 months till this day but my gosh it will come round quick...

    ... but I was thinking of hiring a fancy dress costume for my step dad to wear for abit of the time for the little children :)

    anyone know any good websites to look at them?? Did anyone follow a theme??

    Thanks

    i think its a great idea honey, i do love girly and pink, and who no's in a few years she might want a football themed party, which is also quite cool :happydance:

    they do lots of paper plates, hats, banners and balloons to match, and i was going to get a castle cake for her. and loved the idea of cupcakes on a cake stand, and tea party food to match, like little heart shaped sandwiches or something silly like that! my mum did say should she dress as a princess too, but i told her only if she wanted :rofl: i couldn't imagine my roughly toughly builder dad dressing with a tiara, he certainly doesn't have enough hair :rofl:

    You could serve the drinks in little tea cups and saucers! Tesco have bigger versions of the ornate-looking princess cups! :happydance:

    Leedsforever, my old charge had a rockstar party for her 3rd birthday in December-she wore a little leather jacket and shades. . .we had inflatable guitars and microphones around the room, did musical statues to P!nks "So what" and generally had a blast :rofl::happydance: xx
