For Hudson's 6th b-day he wanted to have an Egyptian party. This kind of threw me for a loop, but i soon had an idea forming and was off and running! Hudson wanted them to eat the cake and ice cream inside of a "pyramid", so it was time to get creative.
I made my pyramid out of canvas drop cloths (which I got at Lowe's), different shades of brown spray paint, black spray paint and I used an Egyptian Heiroglyphics book for a reference. First, I painted the drop cloths with the different shades of brown, then I used the black spray paint to draw sections on the canvas. To complete the pyramid "walls" I drew heiroglyphics inside each of the panels with my black spray paint - using my Egyptian book as a guide. After the "walls" were finished, I constructed our pyramid by hanging them around all 4 sides of our patio, leaving an opening on one end as the entrance. On either side of our opening I placed different sizes and types of palm trees.
The children all had a blast and the birthday boy was thrilled! All in all it turned out to be a wonderful Egyptian afternoon for all!
