Maisy's 7th Birthday

Claire B By Claire B  in Birthday


Party Recap

Maisy loves Sylvanian Families and as we wanted a small party this year it seemed the perfect theme!
The girls had a great time.


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Maisy chose a strawberry milkshake cheesecake instead of a birthday cake so we served that at the end of the party.

  • Party Favors

    Each girl was given 2 Sylvanian figures (pre-loved!) a handmade apron and a bag of chocolate acorns to take home

  • Activities / Games

    We kept things quite relaxed - they played in Maisy's room with all her Sylvanians, I wanted to do a craft activity but knowing these girls I knew they'd all want to do their own thing so I put lots of felt, fabric, paper and Sylvainan catalogues in baskets on the table and let them do as they chose - some made felt clothing and bedding, others made a collage - it was great seeing what they came up with :) We also had the photo booth by the fabulouse Georgia at

  • What People Ate

    I bought everything in the supermarket that was animal themed or 'mini' so there was a lot of different crisps and biscuits!! I also did small sandwiches and token grapes and cherry tomatoes (got to attempt at a healthy option hey!?)

  • What People Drank

    They shared a big jug of cordial

  • Best Dressed

    The birthday girl wore a dress handmade for her in the Sylvanian style - she looked adorable.

  • Details and Decor

    I wanted to keep decor simple but bright and cutesy so we used baskets to store everything (favours, crafts etc) and I bought lots of different ribbons and trims to tie to helium balloons. I created each girl some animal ears to wear (though some brought their own which was great) We set up the table with store bought party wear and I put two Sylvanian characters at each setting with one holding a balloon tied with string and a washi tape name tag. The artwork you see on the favour tags was also used on the invites (no picture boohoo) and was used with kind permission from Lily at I also contacted Sylvanian families who very kindly sent Maisy stickers, wrapping paper and lots of old magazines that we used in the crafting.
