I am just relaxing after a busy afternoon, so I thought I would post some pictures of Ruby's 1st Birthday Party which we had today. As I mentioned previously, I did a woodland themed party, and I made a candy table. I was very happy with how it all turned out. It has a Alice in wonderland feel to it also. I used all my old plates and tea cups and everyone used old miss matched saucers to eat off. We had some of my close friends and family and had a lovely time, Ruby isn't 1 till Tuesday and we are going to have another little family dinner party.
Here is a full shot of the table, I used my new buffet as it was the perfect size.
I made some bunting using some old picture books which I picked up a while ago for 20c. I cut them into triangles and sewed them onto some bias binding I made. I then sewed her name on with some felt.
Here is her cake, I am so happy with how it turned out. I made some green coconut for grass and painted my little mushrooms I made. I made a tree stump with a cupcake with flake for bark. I bought some little woodland creatures and finished it off with some bunting.
I made some little mushroom cupcakes, some marshmallow pops with white chocolate and hundreds and thousands, white chocolate strawberries and some marshmallows with some white chocolate green coconut and a little mushroom sweet on top.
Here are some strawberries and some field mushrooms made with marshmallows and chocolate powder.
I made some cake pops with chocolate centers and white chocolate outside and green sprinkles. I am getting better at them and was very happy with how they turned out, they also went very fast. I also put some caramel popcorn into some cup cake cases. And some coloured meringue's in a glass jar.
And in the tea cups I put some raspberries and mushroom sweets.
Here is the Birthday girl, the dress she is wearing is my old dress. I love it, just think that was me 32 years ago.
Happy Birthday Ruby xxx
