Maisy's birthday party

Did you know Lucy Cousins' anthropomorphic mouse, Maisy, is 20 years old?

We found that out last weekend when we attended her birthday party at a book shop in the city. Big Bro was thrilled- and all day wondered whether it was Maisy's party time yet. When we arrived there were a couple of warmup acts- book readings- before the party girl emerged. (It's evidently not the world's best designed costume, as Maisy had to be led in and out, and a couple of times whacked her guests on the head with her nose!)

The kids played "Maisy says", there was a well-regulated photo-op for each family (Big Bro was nearly ejected by a bouncer because he had almost completely rubbed off his official entry stamp!) and there was cake and singing. What else could a mouse want for her birthday?

Big Bro of course wanted to invite Maisy to his birthday party, and I reminded him that he and Little Bro had of course had a Maisy-themed party last year (subtext- I am out of Maisy creative ideas!)

At the time I showed you the Maisy cakes:

I realized I didn't get around the showing the other Maisy themed components, mostly made using pictures from the Maisy website. First we had the invitations:

I printed pictures from the Maisy Fun Club onto coloured paper bags to use as lolly bags

and onto coloured paper which I cut into triangles and threaded on a string to make a banner.

The official party had Maisy balloons, but apart from those it was pretty easy to make our own Maisy-themed party from scratch.
