Here are a couple (ok, a few more than a couple) of photo’s from Little OL’s 3rd Birthday party.
I have known what theme i wanted for her 3rd birthday for over a year. In fact ever since I saw THIS and post by Sweetapolita. Oh wow! I wanted to make that cake. This from a girl who at time had NEVER made a cake from scratch. As I knew what theme I wanted I have been preparing for a while, gathering ideas and odds and ends. I bought the candles about 8 months ago, I knew if I left them I would never find them when I really wanted them.
Yes, I blew up all the balloons – phew there were a few light headed moments…..
I figured that not all the kids would want to play in the splash pool or slip ‘n slide so gave them something else to do – I also was worried that if it rained they would be very bored. I sprayed masonite clip boards with a glitter varnish and put each kids name on them. The kids then got to take the boards home with them. I also designed and printed off a whole lot of rainbow themed colouring in pages.
I made these boxes using my Silhoutte Cameo. They were the first things I have made with it and it was much easier than I was expecting. The machine has been intimidating me….
I made these the same why that I did the cake. Easy but pretty time consuming.
