Butterfly Me to the Moon

Party time for Our Dear Girl.  We are alternating party years with our children now so it was her turn this year. Bet you can’t guess the theme she chose.

Yes, it’s a puzzler alright!

  1. Just the perfect amount of butterflies, I’d say 😉

    The handpainted bags are so sweet, and I love the cake decorating. A talented effort all round.

  2. I love your parties. All the little details are so classy and kid-centric. No plastic rubbish in sight either!! I adore the cake and think the kids did a fabulous job xxx

  3. What a great effort from you and team! I am trying to figure out how that cake was cut out – quite impressive.

    • Imagine a yin yang shape cut into the cake. This makes identical wing shapes. Two different sized cakes for different sized shapes. Ingenious method isn’t it.

  4. Wonderful!! Takes me back! Brilliant fun I hope was had by one and all x

  5. This looks like a party to remember, all those handmade goodies – so wonderful., Rebecca. Also, I really love this idea of alternating parties, seems much more manageable and fair than just scrapping them all (as I am sorely tempted to do). Wishing you a great weekend ahead! xo

  6. Happy Birthday to Dear Girl from waaaaay over here!! You did a great job decorating for your party.

  7. For a young girl to choose a butterfly is a hopeful thing indeed. Forward looking and elegant is that creature. A symbol of change after much hard work.

    What a lovingly crafted event. Lucky that girl!

  8. Happy Happy Flutter-by birthday!!! What fun and great cookies and cake……I want some 🙂 And all the jewels………whoo hoo

  9. You guys sure know how to party!! The favours and handprint butterflies are beautiful artworks, and that cake is out of this world!! Did you make butterfly costumes?

    • One of our activities was going to be decorating your own wings which we were going to cut from refrigerator box card. But we ran out of time to cut out the shapes.

  10. I love seeing special memories made for your kids. Butterflies are brilliant! Happy Birthday to your little love. 🙂

  11. Very butterfly and oh so pretty!! Good old Women’s Weekly huh? So many birthday cakes – and Christmas cakes – from their wise tomes have graced our tables over the years. Happy Birthday!

  12. You can’t beat a self decorated butterfly cake when it’s your birthday, except possibly with a caterpillar cake, they were very popular here when the children were small.
