Anouk’s Princess Party

So it was my birthday last week….and for some inexplicable reason, and very unlike me, I decided that I was going to have a Princess Party, of all things!

Now those of you who know me will know that I’m not generally a shy, retiring kinda girlie – so with that in mind, I went all out and made myself a totally indulgent party room, complete with purple bouncy castle, unicorns, fountains, rainbows and anything else that took my fancy. I had an absolute blast and even had a purple padded floor.

The invitations were sent out, demanding that all the guests wore their biggest, poofiest, sparkliest princess gowns, including the boys (although I was nice and said that those fellas not quite confident enough to show off their knees in a frock could come as our handsome princes). A big shout out has to therefore go to the very brave and self-assured Mr Gerard Winstanley for donning a particularly charming little number and showing off his legs for the entire evening 🙂 Snapshot_003

We had a fabulous turnout and I would like to give a huge “Thank You” to my wonderful DJ’s, Sword and Rhia, who really made the evening with their great music. Rhia even went as far as to sing happy birthday to me, in that knee-wobblingly melty voice of hers that had most of the crowd a bit flushed by the time she had finished.

I rezzed out every bit of food and drink I had and as usual, over-catered by a mile.

Here’s some pics of the crowd in all their full princess glory….

….although the prize for the most insanely huge dress is a toss up between Emma, and her outrageous hair…

…and Kala, whose dress was so massive, she had to be carried in on the back of 4 newbies! I knew that woman would try to out-do me with her dress – grrrrr!  *shakes fist*  😛Snapshot_027

We ended the evening with a gorgeous firework display that really looked amazing as the coloured explosions lit up the rainbows and sparkles of the set.

So once again – I would like to say a massive thank you to Sword and Rhia for DJing for me, for G-man for being the only guy to wear a dress, and to everyone else for being there. I had the BEST time and hope you did too! 😀

And finally……because I couldn’t decide which dress to wear, I wore them all…so here, because I’m the birthday princess and I can, is a totally gratuitous slide show just of ME and my dresses! 😀
