Mary Poppins Birthday Party
When J turned 4 she was really into the story of the famous British nanny.
Her outfit was based on Mary's carrousel ride outfit. I did not think J would handle the big hat with tulle very well, so instead I made her a little tulle hat hairclip.
We made little kite-shaped chalkboards for the boys
and Mary Poppins dolls for the girls.
I used a slightly altered version of the Black Apple doll (details courtesy of Martha here)
and added accessories.
with a little thank you note from Mary herself
Tuxedo-wearing penguin pinata
The children decorated "carpet bags" with foam cut-outs of umbrellas, kites, flowers
and images of Bert and Mary
We had a very respectable horse race
and cupcakes topped with pink marzipan penguins
Happy Birthday J!
