Birthday Party Ideas for a Tween Girl

This weekend was a whirlwind!

We hosted nine 10-11 year old girls at a birthday party for our daughter.

One night.

At our home (yes, we are crazy!)

There was madness, mayhem, blood (a small flesh wound) and even a phone call from an upset neighbor complaining about the noise (except it turns out it was a friend tricking me out!).

I thought you might enjoy a little behind-the-scenes look at our day...from set up until break down (not breakdown...although it was close!)

So I wrote a little poem to celebrate the occasion, with lots of poetic license (thank you to Clement Clarke Moore for the original).

Hope you enjoy!

Twas the morn of the party when the birthday girl rose

Excitement was high as the day moved along

Preparations continued out on the lawn

A screen that was larger than life soon appeared
Thanks to the skills of a dad with no fear

The birthday girl squealed when she heard the first 'dong'
The guests were arriving out back on the lawn

And what to my wondering eyes should appear
But nine little girls, all dressed in sleep gear

Nine soon-to-be-teens all having such fun
While the last final rays were drawn from the sun

Giggles and squeals as presents were ripped

Then plates were piled high and chocolate was dripped

And while girls snuggled down in their blankets outside
Maleficient played on the screen way up high
And one tired female breathed a big sigh!

The night was soon over and parents appeared
Goodbyes were said and messes were cleared (thanks Mr diy! xx)

We'd pulled off a party for one special girl
who is growing so fast it leaves our heads all aswirl

A girl who is brave, kind, silly and sweet
Then we tucked her in bed and pulled up the sheet

And said as we kissed her and turned off the light
"Happy birthday to you and to you a good night!"
