The Nearly Birthday Girl has a party

“It is nearly my party” she kept saying. “Not my real birthday but my nearly birthday”.

We celebrated with a party last weekend, a couple of weeks early as we had a special little friend staying with us. The theme was a shabby chic tea party. A few handmade touches  but all very low key.

We had lots of wonderful guests to make the day special and I thought I would share some of the little touches with pictures.

The birthday girl

I made her a Lola Style pillow case dress out of the gorgeous floral Spring Bloom Fabric (stay tuned to see it in store in some pretty dresses and skirts for the next Season) She is also wearing a birthday button which is a new product due in store next month. 

Some bunting out of the same floral fabric and a few other pastel pieces.

I made some cupcake toppers by using the same floral pattern and tea time images.


On the menu was the mandatory fairy bread and red sausages few lollies, the cupcakes, iced vovo’s  and fruit platter, then of course no tea party is complete with the Tea Cup Biscuits.

Tea Cup Biscuits. (lots of tutorials and short cuts online. Really easy, no baking, just gluing the bits together with melted white chocolate-that’s my style of kitchen work!)

The slightly lopsided Tea Pot cake!

Make a wish Sweet Heart!

Thank you Loot Bags for guests to take home.

Her actual birthday  is coming up in a week so she is still very excited about that as we have saved our gifts for then. Some really sweet handmade gifts so I will share them soon.

But today is my husbands birthday! We celebrated this along with the completion of his transition shcool and new career in the NT with dinner last night. Happy Birthday my love!
