6th Birthday Party...

Well, Riley and Charlotte's 6th Birthday Party has been and gone.... and we've finally recovered!!  Such a lot of effort put in by myself and the hubby for a two hour party but it was all worth it.  Here's some happy snaps of the fantastic day...

The Birthday Girls

The table set-up
(the party was a High Tea)

The Decorations hanging over the table
(I made these myself but if you're not a crafty person, you can buy them here)

The Party Food

(fruit and lolly kebabs)

(mini cupcakes)

 (sushi sandwiches)

(jelly cups)

 and of course the Teapot Cake

Here's the cookies I baked for the party bags

the contents of the party bags

and the party bags ready to go

It was such a fun day and wonderful for a change that it was all about the kids rather than keeping the adults entertained/fed all day!

Oh, and one last photo.  My gorgeous Harry who had a lovely time with all the girls!!


  1. Beautiful Christine! Lots of inspiration there for my girls' next birthday parties. Don't think I'll be attempting a tea pot cake though....

  2. So pretty. What games did you end up playing?

  3. it looks wonderful!! i made a few of those tissue balls for a tea party that i put on for my adult friend and i am never taking them down, they make everyday feel like a tea party!

    your girls are very lucky to have you.

  4. Awwww, it looks like your girls had a fabulous day!! =)

  5. What an adorable party. It is such a lot of effort, but I think that's part of the fun. I bet the kids had an amazing time.

  6. What a great looking birthday party! I can't wait until my little one is ready for tea parties and high teas! Especially once she's old enough to trust her with my Shinzi Katoh tea set! Hmmm... now I think about that... I don't even trust my hubby with that tea set...
