Fortnite Party #lockdownparty





When Lockdown hit the first thing Oscar asked was "What about my birthday Mam?" I honestly laughed and said it would probably be all over by then...more fool me. I know a lot of kids are having their birthday in Lockdown but as we moved from Newcastle to Leeds in July Oscar was REALLY looking forward to his party and inviting his new school pals. SO I tried to make it as special as possible with a Fortnite theme, it was actually really easy and he LOVED it.




I ordered a few things on Amazon which didn't turn up! So the day before I tracked down a large Morrison's near us and combined our food shop with that as they do Helium balloon's too. I had a lot of lovely messages on my instagram to say that Sainsbury's, Asda and Home Bargains are good for party stuff as well. 

There was loads of things I would have liked they didn't have from flour to birthday cards but there are more important things right now so I just got what I could. Apart from the things you can get from the shops all you need is google images, use of a printer and cello tape. 


Order of the day. 
I just typed this out, printed it and put it in a frame I have. We started the night before because in Lockdown you can have a 2 day party!



Party ideas 

Dance party -
We met in the living room in our party clothes, had pizza, dancing and a Zoom call from my family. My two year old niece even dressed up as a Princess!

Quiz time -
We then did a few online Quiz's, a Fortnite themed one of course.

Fireworks
As it was Thursday we went outside at 8pm and clapped for the NHS. We had a few fireworks left from Bonfire night so let them off. I think Oscar thought it was all for him.



Camp out
We set the tent up in the garden an let the kids all sleep out which they LOVED.  There isn't enough room for us so we slept in the living room next to it and could hear them telling ghost story's and laughing until nearly midnight! We even toasted marshmallows in the morning.

Special Brekkie -
I made Oscars favourite brekkie. Waffles and of course marshmallows! 

Scavenger hunt - There are loads on google to print off but I wont lie the kids just wanted to chill and play Fortnite obviously so we let them.



Pressies of course!






Birthday Buffet
We had party food which I just put Fortnite labels on for fun. - The water bottles are 6 for £1 and I just printed those labels off, cut and stuck with cellotape. I strung the coloured balloons on a piece of thread and cellotaped to the table - so easy!






Dur Burger

I decided to make it a bit more special and make Dur burgers. Which is basically a dressed up burger and the kids went mad for it. 

You will need -
Burger's, Buns, Cheese, Tomato slices, olives, cocktail stick, edible eyes or something like them, pickle onions are good and a ham slice (which I cut into a tongue shape)

Layer the bread bottom, burger, cheese, tomato, ham tongue and bread lid. Place the olive on a cocktail stick and pin it all together. Add the eyes and you have a Dur Burger! 






 We then took the cake outside and all the neighbours sang happy birthday to him, it was so emotional! Oscar said he had the best birthday ever which is all that counts.

Fortnite theme

The only thing I could get Fortnite was the Llama Pinata so -
  • Get anything Black, blue, purple and silver. 
  • I couldn't get a table cloth so use confetti or cut up squares of card to fill the table.
  • Google images is your best friend, literally raided FREE images, printed and with some scissors plus glue it took about 30mins to make all the signs and wrappers. I've included my printable below.

Shopping list - 
I got party food, mini bottles of water, cake supply's (ingredients or a cake) balloons, plates, napkins, confetti, and sparklers.


    CAKE -  Here is my ancient but fail safe Cake Recipe 



    I couldn't get chocolate fingers so stuck Kitkat's around it and with a 'grass nozzle' piped blue buttercream on top but could just spread it. 

    I printed off two Fortnite pictures and his name. Stuck to card and then paper straws with cellotape.





    Voila!

    1. I can't praise Programming Homework
      Help
      services enough, except for the previous order. It wasn't completed and sent in time. There were also a lot of mistakes and a few plagiarism issues, too, but I'm glad they came in and resolved the issue quite fast. Please make an effort to match experts with the right orders. The previous Python Homework Help must have been an amateur, though I appreciate his food knowledge. He only needs some experience to be perfect.

    2. My lecturer gave us an assignment almost at the end of the semester when we were supposed to be preparing for our examinations. I had to choose between studying for the exams and completing the assignment and going to the exams unprepared. So I paid for Statistics Homework Help on statisticshomeworkhelper.com. Then, I used the same Statistics Assignment Help expert's services for revising. After my results, I can confirm that working with the expert was a win-win. His assignment results were perfect, and I also scored most of the things he taught me right in the exams.

    3. I need Matlab Homework Help services but can't see the prices. So how do I go about it? It's a Matlab emergency order with 20 questions, and it's due in the next 2 days. The Matlab Assignment Help task is not so complicated, because I'm a first-year student and it's my end-semester exam. Please let me know how to go about the order placement process.

    4. I always show them my good side and I'm extremely grateful for that. There's no single time that I've ever run into an issue, neither have I failed before with their expertEconomics Assignment Help. I'm not sure if everyone else always gets the same treatment as mine, but I want to believe that the service is what makes them loyal customers. Otherwise, your Economics Homework Help is worth the investment. I'll keep you posted in case of more

    5. I got the best Programming Assignment Help services from their experts, who showed the highest level of expertise and professionalism. Handling my project faster than expected was the best thing they could do to it, especially given that I also wanted some revision time with the paper and solutions. I'm glad I was able to understand a few more C concepts from the properly-arranged solutions. Cheers to the C Homework Help tutor!

    6. I often use statistics Homework HelpS because they never fail. However, statisticshomeworkhelper.com isn't consistent with their prices. I gave up trying to find a model that could help me predict their prices. I think there should be a hint about their pricing criteria to help students have adequate preparation before submitting their assignments for help. Meanwhile, apart from the unpredictable price, I love everything else about the platform's Statistics Assignment Help.

    7. I want to thank you for the extra effort put to ensure that I scored the best grade in my Matlab Assignment Help. I've established trust now, and I'll keep coming back to get more projects to be completed by their senior Matlab Homework Help experts. I'll share their good gospel with my friends, too. Thanks for the top mark.

    8. Hi. Thanks a bunch for giving me grades that I never expected from economicshomeworkhelper.com. I only used the organization's Economics Assignment Help out of desperation, but it helped me discover that there is likely no better online service like it. I highly recommend the platform and this Economics Homework Help provider (the poster). He's such a fast and professional economist.

    9. How can I be sure that they will complete my assignment on time? I have fallen into the hands of fakeEconomics assignment help experts so many times. I am now looking for a genuineEconomics homework help expert who is ready to partner with me for the next 2 years. I would appreciate it if you send me their samples to see the quality of your work

    10. Looking for a master’s levelMatlab homework help solver. I am starting my image processing project but I don’t have time for it. I want aMatlab assignment help expert who will work on it from start to finish. Our professors like it worked step by step so that they can check and return comments for corrections. The tutor I want will be receiving the comments, correcting them, and then returning them to the professor. Once they are corrected and given a go-ahead to continue the tutor will then go ahead to the next chapter until the project is completed. Let me know whether they have someone who can do that.

    11. Java isn't my cup of tea, but I'm confident that the Programming Assignment Help services are going to make a difference. I'm waiting for their solutions for the firstC++ Homework Help order that I've just sent. I believe that they're going to help me pass and understand some of the major concepts of the programming language.

    12. Statistics became harder than I thought before I joined the university. To make it worse, my lecturer wasn't the type of person that explains concepts deeply. So it was everyone for himself. Then I started the hunt for where I could getStatistics Homework Help online and bumped into statisticshomeworkhelper.com. I considered myself lucky to meet this trustworthy expert at my first attempt. He's a one-of-a-kindR Homework Help specialist.

    14. Your blog is quite good. On birthdays everyone have to give gifts but without packaging gift is not a gift and impressionville offered a good packaging for gifts. And you can also find other packaging like cake or any kraft.
