Scott turned 12 yesterday and when i asked him if he wanted a themed tea he said straight away that camouflage/army theme would be cool!
I set it up so that they could get a dish of chocolate icecream and then fill the bowl with fruit, sweets, sauces etc…
I made the goodie bags at the front with Bo Bunny Roughin It Collection, Papertrey Ribbon and name tags. These were to hold the crawling soldiers, soldier bubbles and as many sweets as they could eat! lol Most of the themed party goodies game from a fab store…Fun Party Supplies
I made the cake too – i was asked for a sniper on a hill. 2 sponge cakes, 1 chocolate cake, a mountain of green butter icing and 2 boxes of chocolate fingers later it was done! Scott thought it was ‘cool’ so thats all that matters! lol The lollies were covered with the Bo bunny Roughin it papers and the boys names. Each of the labels were backed with the same papers.
Scott wants to join cadets and go into the army when he leaves school….it makes my heart ache but i came to realise it was something he was serious about when he made a comment to a friend of mine. Her nephew was killed in Afghanistan and Scott said to her that he would always be remembered as a hero. My heart aches but is so proud at the same time.
