Epbot reader and crafty mom extraordinaire Nikki recently gave her four-year-old daughter Niamh the birthday party to end all birthday parties, and I just about flipped when she sent me all the photos and details. Seriously, prepare to be very, very jealous of a four-year-old.
(Funnily enough, little Niamh actually wanted a Gollum-themed party, but her mom was afraid of terrifying all the other kids. Ha! Good call, Nikki!)
The kids got to wear flip-flop Hobbit feet:
And they were given bubble wand "Sting" swords and bubble pipes to blow on:
The party was held in a back yard decorated with pennants, maps of Middle Earth, and hanging lanterns:
Check out the cake: Smaug sitting on a pile of gold!
Dinner was served in the Green Dragon, of course, where the kids drank (Ginger) Ale and (Root) Beer and feasted on a whole smorgasbord of Hobbit-themed treats - each carefully prepared and labeled by Nikki herself.
Then for activities, Nikki handed out kid-friendly replicas of Thror's map:
Each location had special "moon rune" instructions that only showed under a black light(!!):
In this case, it was "Defeat Smaug" - the pinata, that is!
The birthday girl wore a sweet rhinestone-edged Hobbit door on her birthday dress - also handcrafted by her mom Nikki:
Thanks so much for sharing the fun, Nikki! Oh, and be sure to let us know what you do for Niamh's FIFTH birthday, k? (May I suggest...The Fifth Element? PRETTY PLEASE?!)
