When my second daughter was born, my first daughter was given a Wizard of OZ DVD.
It was the original version and she watched it time after time after time – it was the perfect distraction when I needed to sit and feed her younger sister. Her fascination continued for months – we found her a pair of ‘Dorothy’ shoes and as soon as I found a few spare hours, I made her a ‘Dorothy’ dress – we she of course wore as often as possible.
When her third birthday rolled around there was no question as to the theme – the only question was whether I could find a new pair of red slippers to replace her first (now threadbare) pair!
Just in the nick of time, a new pair of red slippers appeared and so plans for her Wizard of OZ party rolled along.
I love this little series of photos – shows you the kids can have fun with a theme that doesn’t need to cost the earth!
So without too much hassle, our Wizard of OZ birthday party went off perfectly! It was a lovely afternoon and was such fun to see all the little lions, totos, Wizards and munchkins arrive for the party!
