A treehouse party

Henri turned 7 yesterday.

Party Henri

We gathered a few of his friends who were also holidaying down our way.  With siblings this resulted in a casual treehouse party for 12.

The older boys organised a treasure hunt which led the children to the treehouse.  Once there, a game of pass-the-parcel was orchestrated in the enclosed part of the treehouse on the second floor, again by the older boys.

Party pyramid

After a main course of BBQ sausages and lamb chops, impromptu pyramids were constructed and wheelbarrow races run.

It makes me immensely happy to see children enjoying the great outdoors and creating their own fun.

Hide and seek took place, and Max hosted some running races for the assembled two year olds. Meanwhile we adults enjoyed a catch up and a glass of wine as the sun set.

Party pavlovas

Birthday cake was individual pavlovas.  Notice how Adelaide has her eyes firmly on the prize.

This one loves her food. I'd go as far as to say she is a little glutton. She polished off this rather sizeable serve of pavlova with no second thoughts.

Party Max

Lolly bags were given out a little early by enthusiastic Henri, so there was even more sugar consumed before the party came to an end.  It was only the dropping temperatures that called an end to proceedings.

All in all, it was a very happy night, and the children had lots of fun.

What an amazing treehouse! It certainly puts the few straggly bits of wood masquerading as a platform in our tree to shame. Lucky Henri - it's the perfect theme for a 7 year old boy's party.


How lovely! Happy Birthday to Henri. It looks like he celebrated well.


What a beautiful site for a b-day party! It looks like they really had a great time! Happy birthday to Henri!


I've just posted about my son's 7th birthday too. Looks like a wonderful day - what a spectacular treehouse!


treehouse, sausage, pavlova! sounds like a perfect party for me, a 37 year old! xo amy
