Max & Ruby inspired party: Part III

Saturday morning I made few cake toppers to add to the flower pots I use for decoration.

Also, I printed out few coloring pages, Max & Ruby stickers on plain paper to use for party hats that also I finished Saturday morning. Everyone can color a page or make a party hat or mask of Max or Ruby. For ladies in the picture below are all sisters. Actually, they have one more sister and 4 brothers!

I asked a friend to make Max & Ruby and Helmī was so happy to see Max coming through the door. Everyone else wasn’t that important anymore. Thank you, Lauma for making Max & Ruby and for painting girl’s faces!

And of course, there were food and cakes…. and games.

And most valuable for me – pictures where we all are together!

And in the picture below post-soviet-union women (my mom with the black & white dress and Ilga, Janis godmother) are taking shots of strong alcohol. Alchocol was forbidden in our house & kids parties. Don’t know how it showed up this time, but I didn’t mind. This is how Latvians celebrated in soviet union time and the old habits die hard ;).IMG_20170919_130531_852

The difference from other countries – we are celebrating all together, doesn’t matter if it’s kid’s party or grownups! There is no such thing as celebrating a birthday without mom or grandmother. All invited!

At the end, there were 26 happy faces & 4 cakes! Thank you all for coming!!!

  1. Wonderful post, wonderful pictures, clearly a wonderful party. Some interesting insights into Latvian life too. Super idea that children’s parties become family parties. I especially like the picture of you with Janis and the girls. Really well done and no doubt worth all the hard work.

      1. Can’t wait. We brought 5 litres of acacia honey back from Romania; is that “plenty” enough for your cake? 😋In fact it’s for a ‘complimentary medicine’ Petronela insists I take every morning – half a grated lemon with a teaspoon of honey. It’s delicious so I don’t need much persuading.

          1. We eat a lot of garlic, something else we brought back from Romania as it has a stronger taste than that we can buy here. Now I get an innoculation again ‘flu because of my other health problems but before that it never caused me a problem.
