Birthday Party…

Hello all!

I hope you are all enjoying this mini heatwave we are experiencing at the moment!  I am staying at my parents in East Sussex with the children, as they broke up for the summer holidays last week.  We went to Whitstable today for a hot and sticky afternoon, with fish and chips and a paddle in the sea.

As I said in my previous post, we held a craft and tea party for my daughter and a few of her friends on Saturday.  The children had a lovely time, the sun shone and the grown ups had Pimms so all was good!!  I took so many photo’s that it’s been a bit tricky to narrow them down for the blog – I will do another post this week to show you the craft activity we did.  

So, back to these pictures – apologies in advance if pink and frou frou is not your thing, but I had a vision in my head, and I ran with it!  (I blame Pinterest!)  So out came the cake stands and the fairy lights, and I went to Hobbycraft to pick up some decorations.  Needless to say, I think I got much more pleasure out of the final result than my daughter, but I think it does us good every now and then to indulge our fancies!  The beautiful peonies and roses were from Morrisons, who I think sell fab flowers very cheaply, I also bought their plain value cupcakes and iced them myself to match the huge madeira cake I made.

I have blog posts coming out of my ears, so I shall be popping back tomorrow evening with some pictures, in the meantime have a lovely Wednesday!

    WOW – it looks absolutely beautiful! The cake is incredible – and you iced it yourself?? I may just have to book you in to style my own parties from now on – including the grown up ones – ha ha! Well done, i bet your daughter was delighted.

    p.s. It's so funny that you're now in East Sussex for the hols .- my in-laws lived there until earlier this year when they moved up to live near us, but until then, that was my regular school holiday routine too!

      Aw thank you so much Paula! I did ice the cake, it took a lot of butter icing!!
      I love it down here, it's such a lovely place to bring the children, they were running around the lawn still at 8pm this evening having a fab time!

    So amazing – the children must have thought they were in wonderland. Well done you, this must have been a lot of work – and very satisfying that it paid off so beautifully!
