Eliza’s My Little Pony Craft Party

For her last two birthday’s, Eliza has had a princess theme with her favourite princesses coming to her party to play games with her and her guests. Although she toyed with the idea of having princesses again, this year she decided she wanted to do something different and decided upon a My Little Pony party.

Our nearest bowling alley is Hollywood Bowl at Tower Park, Poole which has recently undergone a… Continue Reading “Celebrating Sebby’s Birthday at Hollywood Bowl”
