A few weeks in the planning and an hour and a half of party fun and it's all over again for another year, but what a lot of fun was had, and I thoroughly enjoyed making the party bag fillers, icing the cupcakes, dipping the marshmallows on sticks into a bowl full of sprinkles, setting up the dessert table and making Georgie's name banner not to mention the excitement of picking up the birthday cake from Nevie-Pie Cakes and ooohing and ahhhhing over yet another triumphant creation....she is a clever caker.
And now, the cake still lies in all it's colourful glory exposed on it's stand, mostly all scoffed, with it's sugar crafted birdies squirrelled away by little birdie-pinching fingers, the pink balloons are laying slightly deflated on the floor (there seems to be some in every area of the house, how do they do that?), birthday bunting remains hanging proud around the house, colourful birthday cards are (mostly) standing up to attention, until you walk past them, knocking down a couple, round the back of the telly.
Today is a day of rest though, I'll move the furniture back to where it should be tomorrow, but at the moment, I'm enjoying having the armchair
in the kitchen instead of the dining table.......
The birthday girl of course, in her pretty rainbow dress.
The cutting of the cake, revealing it's amazing rainbow sponge!
