A Crafty 6th Birthday party

When the Princess asked for a craft party at the end of last year we agreed, on the basis that she could only invite 5 friends. A the end, she stuck with 4 and I organized everything accordingly. The theme was flowers, with flowers on the tablecloth, party buckets, on the cupcakes and even as part of the mosaic they made. It was such an easy and relaxed party to have - very little preparations and stress. I served quiche for the moms from our local home industries, mini Woolworths hamburgers for the girls and biscuits and cupcakes (home made) for the sweet stuff. But as usual, better told in pictures:
Our table - the table cloth is plastic! Kid you not! Beautiful, don't you think? The flowers were all in tea pots.
Every girl had her party bucket, mosaic and juice set out. We combined the flowers with pink polka dot ribbons.


The cupcake tower made by yours truly and the Princess. The cupcakes with the white icing are red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing - I used Lanalou's recipe. The pink cupcakes are standard cupcakes with cream cheese icing coloured pink. All sugar decorations from Bakers warehouse.

The Princess specially decorated her own cupcake on the top of the tower.
The girl's mosaic door hangers came out beautiful The Princess' is second from the right. Mosaic kits specially made up for me by The Clay club.
