Partay


Zaki and I are just back from a friend`s daughter`s 6th birthday party held at one of my favourite places in Marrakech - the organic Flower Power Cafe at Casa Botanica.


There was a treasure hunt amongst the pretty bunting...


...and tea in a traditional tent...


...designed especially for small people, with flower strewn wooden crates tables...


...and a 5 tier cupcake cake (with gingerbread bases and edible flowers)


When you are seated between a couple of cuties, the paparazzi are not welcome...


...but a vanilla cupcake with sprinkles most certainly is.


There was even a pinata...and everyone got a turn.


But the pinata was a tough old bird and with the temperature still 29 C (84 F) at 5.30 PM, a mid-pinata sit down was necessary for some.


...but it went eventually and there was the usual unseemly scrum...


...and that`s when small elbows and hands come in useful!


Happy Birthday Maria!

Pinatas are so much fun! One I remember from my time in Trinidad was an animal-shape with coloured tissue paper torn into little pieces, scrunched up then glued onto the shape.
