The Birthday Party for an 11 year old

Do you have any idea on how hard it is to come up with a party idea for your soon to be 11 year old daughter?  I find these kind of thing incredibly difficult to plan because I am trying to be realistic and entertaining in an age appropriate way.  Maybe I am a bit of a prude and fussy about what type of party an 11 year old girl might have.

After a lot of soul searching and suggestions from DD that she should have '.........' kind of party because her friends have had them we finally came up with a short list.  This list ranged from everything including a sleep over for many and a pool party.  Finally DD decided it would be really good to go rock climbing.  I raised my eyes upwards and thanked them up stairs for providing me with the perfect birthday party.  One that was easy to organise, with an area for a party and of course plenty of time for a bunch of girls to talk, giggle and have fun.
We picked the rock climbing venue (just take a look at the fun climbing environment) just perfect for children of all ages from preschoollers to adults and sent the invites.

The day arrived and fun was had by all.  Here are just a few photos showing a couple of the climbing walls.

Here is some cartoon show (gosh I am showing my age.)

Now to start planning DS3 birthday which is just after Christmas.
