It’s a Party

Can you remember your 10th Birthday?

Grade Five where were you? Those innocent days of calling girlfriends talking for hours, swapping magazines ( Dolly!!), Pony tails and pig tails, laughter, giggling. What joy!

My nieces sleepover beach party was organized last week..and what a week. Invitations were sent out the first day back at school.

We had such fun creating things for her Beach theme party, using a mix of bright c o l o u r s from the decorations to the food. Crafty things,party games, movies and sleepovers. We had a lot to prepare…

Read on and see what fun we did have…

We started out with  the biggest project of making our 10 year olds birthday cake. So many ideas..seashells,mermaids,beach and ocean scenes. Myself and my sister decided on cupcakes, with her expertise in making a decorative top for the tiered  cake.

We even made the cupcake casings made with beautiful paper,jewels and crystals.The cupcakes were chocolate fudge with a cream cheese icing and a Belgium chocolate seashell on top.

The top of the cake was made with the same chocolate fudge cake mix, made in two small silicone moulds and made into an open shell with mermaid,seashells and pearls.

We made the usual party food things and also some healthy throw ins, everyone had fun and the table was an array of rainbow colours.

All in all a wonderful day and evening with eight little angels.

Hope you had a fun weekend…
