Alyssa’s 2nd Birthday Party at Giraffe House

IMG_8165

We celebrated Alyssa’s birthday at Giraffe House in Stellenbosch on Saturday and had so much fun! The venue, the weather, the animals and the guests all contributed to making the day oh so special for our little princess. Being February in Cape Town, I was at first a bit concerned that it may be extremely hot and unbearable at the venue but it seems that Autumn is making an early appearance and on the days leading up to the party I was actually praying that it wouldn’t rain on Saturday morning!

Nevertheless, the weather actually turned out perfectly for the party, not too hot and not too cold with a fresh wind keeping everyone cool. The kids had a blast feeding the animals, seeing Gerry the Giraffe and feasting on all the yummy treats. I had a great time catching up with friends and their kids – a totes enjoyable morning!

It was a real DIY party in terms of decor and food – some of the ideas which I will share with you in later posts this week.

Here are some special memories of the party

  1. […] I need to find a venue…. As much as I want to host the party at home, from a cleaning perspective I prefer to have it elsewhere as after the party there’s not much cleaning and packing away! We can just go home and relax, just like we did last year after her party at Giraffe House. […]
