Hey Everyone 🙂
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine posted a few pics of her daughter’s 5th birthday party. I seriously cannot stop looking at the photos…and also wishing I was 5 lol. She did such an amazing job putting it all together, from the homemade cakes to the cute strawberry basket favours. For anyone who may be planning a little one’s birthday party soon (or even something for us adults 😉 ) , she was kind enough to share all her inspiration and ideas with us. All I’m thinking is how much I can’t wait until Amel is old enough for something like this!
“I Love any opportunity to get creative! My daughter loves summer, strawberries, and picnics. I thought what better way to celebrate her birthday than to have her own little picnic. Unfortunately, Canadian spring is pretty unpredictable and we ended up with a freezing cold rainy day! We decided to bring the picnic in, and she couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out!”
“For as long as I can remember my mom always baked our cakes, and I’m a big believer in passing on traditions.” The cake was inspired by this Strawberry Thyme Cake. The base was a lemon ricotta (which sounded absolutely delicious to me), however I wasn’t sure that the kids would feel the same. I really like the simple natural look of the cake, so I made my own vanilla cake and added a few spoons of strawberry jam to the buttercream. It tasted absolutely delicious!
She also set up another small table with a hand lettered chalkboard
to welcome her guests. To accompany the chalkboard, she put out a jar of liquorice and a variety of strawberry flavoured candies. She then dressed it up with a few fresh strawberry plants that her and her family later planted in the backyard.
