Sophie’s Peppa Pig Bday Do @ Ella’s Creamery Dubai

So excited to do this post. Just going through the photos brings a smile to my face ๐Ÿ™‚ And that, I think, is what I did miss about blogging.

So my girl is turning the big 2, and we decided to have her birthday do a little earlier this year as it is getting rather hot outdoors. Whilst I was chatting with the owner of Ella’s Creamery about themes – I knew they had some default ones but my girl was not a fan of unicorns as yet. Or airplanes. Her favourite show was Peppa Pig ๐Ÿ™‚ When the owner said OK with Peppa, I was absolutely delighted. Like a little girl again. I couldn’t wait to see how it will turn out.

We headed over to Riverland on Saturday. Outside the front door of Ella’s was a massive Daddy Pig cutout with ‘Happy Birthday Sophie’ on it. It was so cute. Sophie was a little scared at first. I think she didn’t quite understand what Daddy Pig was doing in front of this shop, or rather, what he was doing outside of our TV at home ๐Ÿ™‚ After a few photo attempts, she did wave a little, and we brought her indoors.

To be honest, the setup inside was beyond our expectations. All the little details, from the main table with cake, cupcakes and lollies and balloons, to the main kid’s table, to the play area at the back. Photos will describe it best. Here’s a little photo blog of Sophie’s special day.

Daddy Pig welcomes Sophie to Ella’s Creamery!

Display table

Right near the entrance was a display table with balloons, Peppa-themed cake, Peppa-themed cupcakes, and lots of lollies. Perfect spot for a family photoshoot.

Main table

Little Peppa and George cutouts on the main table, to join the kids. Lots of thought went into setting this up I could see – the Peppa-themed plates, cups and napkins, with colouring-in as tablemats. Even water bottles with my girl’s name on it, ha ha! I took two home. I need to learn a bit of this to do this in our own house!

Arts & Crafts Corner

Right at the back there was a pretty little arts & crafts table set up with books, and lots of colouring paper to keep the kids busy.

How the day wentย 

Whilst the guests arrived, the kids did a bit of colouring at the back, whilst the adults caught up. There was a lot of random dancing to the music, just general mucking around exploring the creamery ๐Ÿ™‚

The kids were then lead to do some cookie decorating. Most of the icing went on Sophie’s face. Haha.

Next was crazy shake making. And crazy, it was! Enough sugar to last the year, I know… I know, he he. Don’t judge, this is a once a year (or lifetime) thing ๐Ÿ™‚

This was super fun, with the chef and the staff from Ella’s guiding the kids on how to prepare a crazy shake.

After the kids were done, they were then brought to the main table to have a sip of this sugary goodness (or otherwise, taken away by their parents so they could indulge in it). More colouring and photos, then…. party time!

Eliza, the host (love her!) was so good. Loud, as you should, with 2-5 year olds. Lots of dancing was involved. Sorry no photos for this one to share with the public as there’s too many faces in there, hehe.

We finished the evening with more photos and singing. As you do, at a kid’s party ๐Ÿ™‚

Did Sophie enjoy it? I’m absolutely sure. She was running around saying hi to Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, to Peppa, to George. A lot of dancing. Playing with helium balloons ( or rather, setting them off into the big big sky outside !). And yes, a lot of sugar that mummy and daddy would normally not give her – that’s the best ๐Ÿ™‚

Would I recommend Ella’s? Yes. If you don’t want the headache or organising your kid’s own birthday do, speak to them, they’ll help you out. Just bear in mind, it is an ice-cream parlour. So there is a lot of sugar involved ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a link to their website :ย

Many thanks to Donald for getting all organised, to Rajesh for getting the tableware, to Chef for making the gorgeous cupcakes and preparing the cookies and crazy shake, and to Eliza for being the super host of the day so mummy and daddy didn’t have to stress. And to the rest of the staff who kept the guests happy and hydrated throughout the afternoon!ย

Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
