Happy 2nd Birthday!

Today we celebrated Sabre turning 2. Her actual birthday isn’t until next Thursday but seeing as Mum and Dan, Jemma and Brad and her kids were going to be here this weekend we decided to have a little party for her today.

Sabre has been exited about the prospect of her birthday for about 2 months now. It was obviously a mistake to talk about it way back then as she asked upon waking for those 2 months if it was her birthday and can she eat cake. Then there would be tears whenever I told her it wasnt yet, so we avoided talking about cake, balloons, presents or anything birthday related as much as we could. She would also announce that she was going on a big plane for her birthday. I started trying to explain that we couldnt go on a plane but after a while I just said” mmmmmmm maybe” and then eventually just “yes a big plane” and she would go off satisfied that she was going on a big plane.
Upon finally waking on her party day today she has forgotten the plane idea….but the cake idea was firmly engrained and she asked for cake for breakfast as she does most mornings. We now tell her weetbix is cake.

I had let her pick out what cake she wanted for her birthday and thankfully she picked out a catapiller. I am not a expert at cake making and this was at about my skill level. It turned out very cute in the end.








We had a few little friends over and some party food and Sabre had lots of fun playing… with a peice of cake in her hand at all times.

When it came to the actual birthday cake time it was very funny. She sat at her little table and chairs and everyone gathered and as we all started to sing she burst into tears and ran inside! Poor little thing was quite overwhelmed.  Once she came back out and saw all the kids around the cake she was ok and they all played with the cake and had some to eat.

Of course there were a million too cute pictures of the birthday girl so here are a few in a collage.

And a family shot………awwwwwww.

I made her a sweet birthday outfit…a puff sleeve top with cupcake applique and rosette embelishment and adorable white princess twirl skirt. Tights and cute shoes finish her off.

Stay tuned for more shirts like Sabre’s in the next few weeks on the Ollie Rose site and get your own birthday girl an adorable top too. Skirts to come for spring!

    Hi Beth, Thanks for stopping by the blog.
    The catapillar cake was really easy! I made cupcakes then slightly shaped them round with a knife…dont worry if it looks messy. Then just iced them and rolled them in shaved coconut. Colour the cocount by putting it in a ziplock bag with a few drops of colouring. The grass was the coconut too. Couple of lolly eyes and pipe cleaner feelers! Simple and fun!
