Hobbit 4th Birthday Party

Nicole W By Nicole W  in Birthday


Party Recap

My 3 year old asked for a Gollum themed party (she adores Gollum!), but I managed to convince her to go with hobbits more generally, so that the other four year olds wouldn't get freaked out. I have been dreaming of a Hobbit themed party for YEARS (well before Niamh was born), so I was outrageously excited when she came up with the theme. Hooray for raising geeky children! Lots of details and tutorials available on my blog at
