Birthday Preparations #3

Birthday Preparations #3

It's birthday time again, Lulu turns 3 this week and Oli 6 next week.  I've been busy making little bits and pieces for parties which started with more cupcakes and mini birthday crowns for Lulu...

I made some more of these sweet crochet crowns after they went down well at Christmas for Lulu and her little friends using this pattern. It's been a bit frantic trying to find time to do everything as I've had a couple of orders to complete too and it's our wedding anniversary this week (my eldest reminded me today!). I also made another couple of batches of mini cupcakes for Lulu to take to her toddler group I used the same recipe as last year and decorated them with a blob (technical term!) of butter icing and some jelly sweets.



One of her favourite birthday gifts; her hero of the moment 'Mike the Knight'...



This is a typical face from Lulu who at 3 is a whirlwind of energy and excitement but also feisty, kind, generous and sweet and who makes us laugh everyday!

Happy Birthday Lulu we love you loads...


Bye for now. Em xx

    Oh my, she is adorable, love that squished up nose face! Its my big boys 9th birthday in 2 weeks ... so busy at this time of year, a birthday thrown in just tips me over the edge!! ... although having said that I don't have to make that much effort and 9 year old boys don't really appreciate cute homemade gifts and pretty decoration!!

      Thank you - The cupcakes went down very well, but not before I'd 'sampled' a few myself! ;))
