Pearls 10th Birthday

 photo JunePearl246_zps9c75afa1.jpg

This weekend my cousin Pearl turned ten years old. She's a major history buff, and this spring she's delved deep into the world of the Romanov Family. She knows everything there is to know, and decided her party theme would be 1910s themed, with her family of four girls dressed as various members of the Romanovs. 

She chose Anastasia, complete with sash and tiara, and my brother sported robes and creeped around as Rasputin. We set up a picnic at a local park and had traditional Russian treats and even played a trivia game. 

Happy Birthday Pearl!

This is the cutest thing I've ever seen!! I had the exact same interest when I was her age-- it started when I read Angel on the Square by Gloria Whelan, you should definitely recommend it to her :) It's so cool to see kids interested in history, and all the costumes are AMAZING!!

What a wonderful birthday party theme - and how exciting that a mini history buff came up with it?

You all look splendid (loving the dresses) but I think dedication to character must go to the mad monk!

This is sooo gorgeous. I wish I had a birthday party like this when I was a child :-)

Abbi Jane said...

That is wonderful!

I have longed to have a party like this (fashion wise)ever since reading Anne of Green Gables when her and her friends go on a "golden picnic". What a smart girl!

Gemma said...

What a fantastic idea for a party - I love seeing children embrace history and knowledge whilst finding it fun. It's what learning should be like!

You look so classically beautiful in those pictures - you're hat is particularly amazing!

Wow, wow, wow!!! What a birthday party!!! I love it!!!

Laurence said...

This seemed to big a perfect garden party! It's fun to see how everybiody followed the theme...

Madalynne said...

what a neat chick! To be into history and learning at such a young age is rare. Most kids want iphones, ipads, or to be on the Internet all day. Happy birthday Pearl.

Alejandra Ramos said...

I want this theme for my birthday party!

Sarah Dee said...

I was equally enthralled with history at her age (and even now!). What a creative birthday party! Can I assume you helped put together a lot of the costumes? Or is your family just the most bad ass ever?... Or both ;)

Wow! Your niece sounds like such a cool ten year old.

The Fabulous Mrs. Wing said...

That looks like such a beautiful day. So much prettier than a Justin Beiber themed party that I imagine most ten year old girls wanting.

Oakley Seal said...

I think you have what must be the coolest family ever!!

Hadley Makes said...

This is so adorable! What a loving family.

Debra Lynn Mejia said...

Wow, you guys go all out for a party! Very unusual theme for a little girl to choose. I sense a budding historical novelist coming about. Gorgeous costumes!

Taiko Haessler said...

Happy birthday to your smart-cookie cousin! ...Beautiful photos as always.

Jessica Cangiano said...

Fantastically lovely birthday celebration! I was nothing short of obsessed with the Romanouv family as a child, too (in no small part because I have a bit of Russian blood in my veins). I so adore that your dear cousin opted to celebrate these famous Russian royals for her special day.
