Vikings and Dragons Birthday Party
Vikings & Dragons Birthday Party Details:
This is what Laura shared about the party-
The new obsession… DRAGONS
Our boy Luka turns FOUR!
It was DIY madness! We had so much fun creating all sorts for his party. Invites, games … even Dragon Powers!
DIY Dragon Scale Invites using colour swatch cards from the hardware store!
Our Party colours were inspired by 5x beautiful Dragons which Luka received as gifts from family members. They became part of the party set up. Such beautiful majestic looking creatures
THE RED DRAGON – Dragon of FIRE
from Grandma & Grandpa!
FIRE cupcakes with FLAME toppers made by Kylie from Khaos Cakery
THE GUARDIAN DRAGON – The Protector, from Mummy, Daddy & Hazel.
This armoured dragon was watching over our ‘Diamonds’, Blue Dragon ‘Eggs’ and Dragon Cookies!
Those Cookies!! In shades of shimmering blue looked and tasted amazing. Gingerbread of course… the birthday boys favourite!
Thanks Susannah! Cockle Bay Bake Shop
Our Dragon Cake Table full of Devine treats and guarded by Dragons …
THE GOLDEN DRAGON – Royal Dragon, from Uncle Tema, Aunty Char, Mycah & Aria.
This Dragon collects and protects Dragon Treasure, especially Gems!
Our DIY golden Dragon Egg is very safe under the watchful eye of this Regal Beast
Lukas Dragon Cake by the lovely Melissa Karaka Kitchen
Chocolate Mudcake with Chocolate Ganache and Rasberry Compote
My mouth is watering all over again describing this delicious cake to you all! The rasberry is that wonderful sweet sour surprise in between all the chocolaty goodness.
EVERYONE was impressed!
Thank you Melissa! seriously good!
EAGLE DRAGON –
The Freedom Fighter. Patrols the skies, protecting and defending. From Grandpa Rob.
The Feast … Guarded by the Dragon of Steel, from Kulu (granny)
This dragon is a leader… strong and assertive, grumpy and clever. It has the power of Magic.
Our feast was put together by my lovely sister Charlotte! What would I have done without you!!!?
We used our Partini Cake Table with Natural Wood Legs, Grass Placemats and various platters and boards trying to keep things looking earthy.
DIY Golden Goblets to hold the straws, amazing decal eyes on our bottles by @decald_design
And WATER … to wash it all down
I think the kids were happy
Thank you for coming to my party Luka.
Fill your bag with Dragon Treasure
Usually I’d design & print something, but a workshop by the talented @thepapergazelle inspired this chalk board sign … it’s not perfect but its handmade DIY goodness
Our Favour Table which became an activity in itself … Lukas little friends could fill their bags with their choice of Dragon Treasure!
ACTIVITIES AND GAMES
DIY Viking Shields! Luka LOVED making these!
We premade the basic shield for each guest and had gems and stickers on a craft table at the party for decorating. There were lots of gems and stickers left over… fighting dragons was way more important than decorating shields ♀️ And yes…. daddy @dowlingsean was very helpful collecting the @estrelladamm bottle tops for us ⭐ Pinterest was our inspiration!
Clever dads at the party made Balloon Swords and Helmets!!!
Luka was very impressed with his fire breathing Dragon!
