Celebrate my birthday with me
Hello, lovelies! I’m counting down the days to my birthday next week and thought I’d share pictures from my party last year.
A Pink Themed Birthday Party
Everything from my dress, flower crown, and birthday cake was pink. Unfortunately, I was too busy on the day and did not have time to take lots of pictures. Literally, 1 minute before everyone sat down, I ran around the table and snapped a few shots.
I had envisioned a table with different shades of pink and wanted to serve my guests some of my favourite treats. All of these treats were purchased from Woolworths and Four & Twenty cafe. Four & Twenty is one of my favourite bakeries in the southern suburbs. Of course, Woolworths (aunt Woollies) never disappoints, their quality is what differentiates them from the rest.
I may have gone overboard with the sweet and savory treats from Four & Twenty, but my aim was to cater to everyone. I really loved the edible rose petals that came with the cupcakes. There were so many petals left that I sprinkled them over the treats to keep within the theme. The petals created height, which made them more elegant. Who wants normal sized cupcakes on their birthday anyway? To keep within the budget, I used cake stands, mugs, serviettes, vases, cutlery and decorations from our home. Some of the flowers were handpicked from my Moms garden, the rest was bought.
