Blogger and Craft/DIY maven Cintia Gonzalez (My Poppet) put together a simple and chic birthday party for her daughter Emma who recently turned four. Don't you just adore the giant crepe paper flower on the table? This is proof that a party doesn't need to be too elaborate or expensive to look fantastic. I also love the healthy food on offer and... no goodie bags (yay!). Cintia shares her tips and tricks for Emma's flower garden party:
Organised by: Emma's mum, Cintia (My Poppet)
Location: Melbourne, VIC
Theme: Flower Garden party
Cake: Number four flower cake, homemade from the Australian Womens Weekly Children's Birthday Cake book - vintage collector's edition (see directions on My Poppet)
this tutorial by Ruche on Design Sponge), crepe paper table runner and garland from a local party supply store.
Party food: Finger sandwiches (made by Mum), deviled
eggs (see recipe on My Poppet), veggie flowers using carrots, cucumber and cheese cubes, scones with jam
and cream, and chips.
special: Each little guest was given a giant flower to take home as a
party favour. The fact that there was no treat bags went unnoticed
Thank you so much Cintia! Head over to Cintia's blog My Poppet for more photos, recipes, and instructions on how to make the cake.
