We took our first trip to Whistler last weekend – very much the thing to do when you are a Vancouver local!  It seems that most of the Aussie expats we have met that are living here spend their week in Vancouver and head to Whistler every weekend to enjoy the skiing!  

As we are not yet skiers we just did the sightseeing tour – spectacular!  I can see there will be many more weekends spent in this part of the world!  We were hard pressed to find a local while in Whistler – every cafe, lift operator, hotel desk operator and tourist came with an Australian accent – seems we like it over here!

They have had so much snow this season – the best for years – so we are definitely seeing this part of the world at its best! The girls had a great time tubing while Mr A and I stood around freezing our butts off – need to put an end to that and learn to ski!!

So the latest party to take place in our house was back in June for Indi’s 4th Birthday and today I am excited to share with you the photos from her special day.

From the moment I saw these very cute invitations from Sarah of Style Me Gorgeous I knew one of our next parties in the house would revolve around the Sprinkles and Confetti Theme and the minute I suggested it to Indi she was hooked!

I had lots of fun dipping and sprinkling everything from bottles to marshmallows – lots of very simple food that was easy to eat for the kids with the special touch of the amazing cake and cookies by Hello Naomi.

As is now custom with our parties we keep the numbers small and intimate but have loads of special details that everyone gets to enjoy.  This party was no different with just 5 of Indi’s little pre-school friends coming along.  We had one of those horrific torrentially rainy days on Indi’s party day so I was a little thankful for the small numbers and our beautiful entertainer Phillipa from Fairy Fun who kept the girls completed mesmerised while they were here.  Phillipa has now been part of every one of my girls parties over the years and it was lovely to hear the party girls say to her at the end of the party “Please stay and play with us some more”!

Please enjoy the photos from Indi’s Birthday party – this list of suppliers is at the bottom of the post.
