An End Of Summer Fancy Dress Party

Little N and his pals are all heading to nursery and preschool very soon. *sob* To mark the end of summer and let them burn off some steam together we had a fancy dress party.

I got some awesome Iron Man, Thor and Optimus Prime fancy dress outfits* from Asda and lots of yummy, sugary party food and drinks, funky plates, the works! I went all out to make sure the children would have a fantastic time. Iron Man is my favourite outfit as it lights up, plus he is the coolest hero!

We had juice and milkshakes galore…

There were party rings, popcorn, cakes, yogurt lollies, grapes and cheese sandwiches…

Our friends arrived dressed as Olaf, a Princess and a Superhero and we had spare costumes for those without their own. Baby J wore his superhero leggings and a Batman top. Little N however refused to wear any of his fantastic costumes for the party and threw the mother of all tantrums!

The kids all had a blast though and I’m sure Little N and friends will get lots of enjoyment out of their ASDA fancy dress outfits, especially with Halloween fast approaching!

Do your children like dressing up? What is their favourite fancy dress outfit?




Disclosure: ASDA provided us with our fancy dress costumes and a voucher for our party food.

  3. Great pictures, it looks like the children had a great party. Arthur will only dress as a fireman or wear a cape but he will not entertain anything else.

  4. I'm sorry little N threw such a tantrum. I'm so glad though that even without him wanting to wear a costume, he and his friends had lots of fun!
