Ella chose a very cute interpretation of the alien theme by dressing up as the Loon character in the Huff stories.
In fact most of the girls went with variations on the cute or princess type alien theme.
The pinata game went on for ages and was really enjoyed by all the kids. Ollie had made the pinata himself using Clag glue and tissue paper (and made it practically indestructible). By pure chance Ollie himself landed the final destructive blow, releasing heaps of treats for all the kids who'd banged away at it patiently for at least half an hour of valuable party time.
Ollie's young male friends are equally gorgeous.
...... although why is it always the girls who position themselves so strategically when it is time to cut the Smarties, SORRY, I mean the birthday cake.
Claire is the most popular girl in town, when it is time to distribute the icing and Smarties, SORRY, the birthday cake.
We shared some lovely, much quieter moments after the party when Ollie opened up his amazing array of presents, helped very sweetly by Ella.
He was lucky to be given some beautiful things reflecting his talents and very cultured interests although there was enough Toy Story merchandise to prove that this was a 6 year old's birthday party after all. We missed Angus and his Daddy at the party very much. Angus was using the time to recover at home from his very heavy cold.
