Esra... The Birthday Princess!
The morning was for unwrapping presents and playing with balloons...
We had a party the day before to celebrate with all her cousins. The cake was a horse and carriage princess cake from Asda. The cupcakes were also from Asda and I added edible pale pink butterflies and pink cupcake wrappers.
We also had an extra princess tray bake cake...
Nom nom nom!
I made party boxes for the kids... I didn't have a massive sweet table like I did last year, I just packed everything I wanted so it was less mess. I also had her party at my mother in laws, so figured it would just be easier this way.
The girls ones contained all things pink...
Princess food which consisted of crown sandwiches and a star jewel.
Pink number 2 glitter sugar cookies. I used THIS recipe from Pinterest. I used royal icing and added pink food colouring and pink glimmer sugar before it was dry. Not bad for a first attempt! :)
I made tiaras for the girls and picked up some gold crowns for the boys. To make the tiaras, I drew a tiara template then cut them all out in pink card, I purchased pink jewels that already had sticky tape on the back and placed them strategically section by section, one by one (yes it took forever) I then hot glue gunned ribbon on the sides to create ties.
The boys had clear packaging and some tattoos and I got them a few blue things :) Also, I had extra icing left when I made the number two cookies so I piped everyone's initial on Farley's rusks and then added sprinkles for a personalised touch! :)
Esra wore the baby Lily dress from Monsoon. Link! I got her some gold ballet shoes from Asda and I made her the flower crochet headband.
