Despite how hectic planning a party can be, I am kind of sad that the girls party is over.
So let’s quickly relive it through pictures, OK?
In case you have missed the last couple of posts, we threw the girls a “Vintage Bakery Party” at their request. I tried to keep the colours to pink, purple, grey and white. Despite my best efforts, it had a smattering of brown too. But that’s OK, because the only one that noticed was me. 😉
In this case I think that pictures really do speak louder than my written words could, so here are a few pictures of the highlights of the day.
Every birthday party starts the same way – with a steaming poo. Oh no wait that’s not right. And actually neither was the top of the giant cupcake that I baked. It really did look like a poo. Thankfully we managed to salvage it slightly…
The only thing that I wanted to take on (because it’s become a tradition) is the birthday cake.
We were able to outsource the cupcakes and a few other yummy treats to Megan from Bosworth Bakery. I need to stop here and just point out that these were the most gorgeous cupcakes that I have ever had the pleasure of eating. And if you can believe it, they tasted even better! If you are in Cape Town, you absolutely have to indulge for your next special event. I had so much extra time which enabled me to make all the things that I really wanted to make – which involved a lot less baking (thank goodness).
When Megan and I discussed what I wanted I said, “pink, white and grey with a vintage theme”. I showed her a few pictures that I found on Pinterest and that’s it. I knew that if I left it up to her, they would look amazing and they did! We also had chocolate ganache tarts and new to Megans offering we tried the mini chicken and mushroom pies and a variety of quiches. All seriously droolworthy.
Plus the cakes really added to the look and feel of the “treat table”. On the table you can also find –
But what is a baking party even for if you don’t dress the girls up like little bakers. Many thanks to Seth and my Mom for whipping this outfit up last minute. The end result is that we had two of the most adorable bakers you will ever see (with a little photobomber)
And they had even more adorable friends that shared their day with them.
Although I didn’t get to take nearly as many pictures as I wanted to of the actual social side of the party – epic fail! Seriously need to consider a proper photographer next year.
