Welcome to Wonderland

Welcome to Wonderland

Children (and lets face it most grown ups) everywhere continue to be enchanted by Alice in Wonderland. The magical world that Lewis Carroll created so full of vivid images and unforgettable characters makes it simply perfect to recreate as a childs party theme. From giant mushrooms, and oversized teacups to magical treats requesting guests to 'drink me' and 'eat me', a trip to wonderland is every childs dream.

My very talented friend Abigail (a self confessed 'party freak') created such a party for her daughters eighth Birthday. Abigail is a professional photographer and took the opportunity to capture her gorgeous daughter in an Alice Concept Shoot while she was dressed in her party outfit. How beautiful are these photos!

Pinata Love

I love baking and I love baking cakes but I never bake my children's birthday cakes, I always purchase them. I discovered long ago that organising and hosting your child's party for 20 and baking what ought to be a showstopping cake (trust me children's expectations of THE cake are high) and on the day before the party, is just to stressful and the result is too disappointing.

Some people manage with ease to lovingly bake their child a wonderful cake for their special day, I instead loving make a birthday Pinata (and I make it well in advance of the big day).

When my children were very little we used to cover a small balloon in paper mache and when dry I let them loose with the paintbrushes to decorate the now hard balloon before hanging it outside and allowing them to pummel it with a child's bat. Over the years we have made rainbow pinata's, pink pig pinata's, number pinata's and halloween pumpkin pinata's. My latest pinata is for a gorgeous little poppet's first birthday, yes she may be a llittle small to hit it with a bat but the older children at the party will enjoy it and I am sure she will love to watch it explode its confetti and goodies everywhere. It will also look exceeding pretty in the birthday photo's!
