A traditionalist at heart, I just went with simple pink, lemon and white. Something sweet, simple and girly.
The lolly bags and tags are from Paper Eskimo.
I made the pom poms using pink, white and lemon tissue paper using instructions from Martha Stewart. Unfortunately it was a very windy day and they didn't stand up well to the battering.
Family members couldn't resist getting stuck into the goodies before the guests arrived.
The beautiful birthday cake was made by Sugar Daddy Cake Design. It was exactly what I wanted, simple, feminine and delicate.
Elissa's sugar flowers are a work of art.
I created the dessert table long before I had discovered the talents of Amy Atlas, so it's not quite up to her standard. But it looked very sweet and deliciously tempting for the little guests.
This is the first time I ever made cookies, so they are a little rough around the edges, but they were gobbled up quickly.
Cupcakes made by Sugar Daddy Cake Design.
The cupcake toppers are from Details Details.
I made the pink swirl meringues from a Donna Hay recipe.
I chose a springtime selection of my favourite flowers: pink sweet peas, ranunculus and tulips in a pale pink tumbler from Ikea.
The glass jars from Ikea were bursting with cotton candy.
The birthday girl with hat made by me!
I bought the party hat at Spotlight and added the tissue paper trim, cake topper and Martha Stewart Craft flowers.
Not sure what we'll do for number two - but this was a beautiful, memorable event I will treasure always.
