Made it Monday...birthdays

Last week was MiniMe's birthday and we had a few friends over for afternoon tea on the day of her birthday. She is convinced that she has to celebrate her birthday on the actual day and can not be persuaded otherwise.

We had a 'royal' afternoon tea. She wanted it to be royal and not princess so that her cousin (a boy) could come.

I had made bunting for JJ's birthday and it made an appearance again.

 A friend had made these cute cupcake biscuits for her daughter and I thought they fit the afternoon tea theme well! Also impressed by my 3-tier cake plate that I found at Vinnie's for $5! Added a lovely touch.

MiniMe wanted a blue cake (this has become her favourite colour, 3 years ago everything had to be pink but now it is blue.) The flowers on top are not my creation. I was hunting for a tea cup a couple of hours before the party and came across a container that my Dad had given me a few months ago. In it was the flowers off my christening cake. At the time I wondered what I would do with it and was amazed when it perfectly fitted in the centre of the tiara (hair clips) circle. Something blue, something new and something borrowed!

I had lots of fun getting it all ready and am looking forward to more tea parties in the future! With three girls I am bound to have another!

  1. It all looks most regal - perhaps we should have a high tea to celebrate the royal nuptials in a couple of weeks?
