Michaela didn’t want a big party for her 18th – she opted for her close girlfriends to come over for a movie night.
We set up a lolly bar with rock candy, marshmallows for roasting in the fireplace, love heart jelly beans and all sorts of other yummy treats. There were cute popcorn boxes and these gorgeous stripy paper straws that we found – yes real straws – not those pathetic plastic ones. Snacks included pastries, spring rolls, little chicken drumettes, fruit and a vegetable platter with dips. Everything looked so cute and the girls loved it.
I made cupcakes and we made our own stand out of decorative boxes from the $2 shop.
Aaron is having his party this Saturday and the theme is Star Wars – my challenge is to make a Yoda cake – if you see no more photos after this declaration then you can assume it was a dismal flop – otherwise I will post all instructions here soon…
