I am sure that if you had grown up in the eighties (sounds ancient ah....), you would be able to connect with Smurfette, Gargemal and Papa Smurf.

I enjoyed watching the cartoon Smurf when I was young and still believe that it is one of the best cartoons ever. Somehow, the cartoons nowadays do not appeal to me.

So imagine how excited I was when told that the theme for a nephew's party is Smurfs! Woo hoo! I am pretty sure it was the mum who wanted that. Kids nowadays would probably be more inclined towards Superheroes, Ben Ten and the likes.

Welcome into the land where everything is blue and there is only one female!

It was a busy school term so we did not even have time to think of what to wear. I was just ready to ransack my wardrobe although,  I know that I did not have anything of even a close colour.

We did a last minute shopping the night before. I know BOSSINI was carrying a Smurfs line but unfortunately, it was no longer available at most outlets. Until I called up Hougang Mall branch - they still had them but with limited stock. Not exactly very near but zoomed, off we went!

We grabbed quite a lot because everything was just so cute and adorable....

Urgh, I know. No horizontal stripes for me - looked so fat here. Smurfs tees from Bossini, blue cardigan and shirt from Cotton On, his white pants also from Cotton On. My old  (originally) white pair of  pants is now a subtle shade of off-white. :)

One of his sisters and nieces were busy doing the Smurfs hats... very cool effort though it looks like a chef's hat because of its height!

Super cute birthday cake...and yummy as well! The top tier is chocolate fudge and bottom tier is oreo cheesecake.

Lolli chocs which are actually brownies coated with chocolate.

We tried out some face painting. Unfortunately , my SIL did not manage to get the right shade of blue . It turned out a bit weird... hahahahaa....  perhaps, we shd have gotten some white to mix it with...

Our adorable niece is very fearful of my husby and we have no idea why. I am quite convinced she is scared of his goatie. Here is a photo of her bawling away when husby carried her...


It was quite a cool theme, for kids and adults alike, in my opinion.

Can I turn back time? I really want a Strawberry Shortcake or Carebears theme  :(
