Birthday bash

My younger sister threw her daughter a birthday party recently, making the creative cake and cupcakes herself. There were sweets, a giant bouncy castle and good company, and to top things off, the weather on the day was great too . Here’s some of the photos I took. Can you guess the theme?

We all had a lovely day and my niece had lots of fun and was exhausted long before the party’s end. I hope she has a long healthy life ahead, and that I get to spend lots more time with her.

Burger party

A few weeks ago my sister-in-law invited my mum, sisters, the kids and me over for lunch. We knew the food would be good as my sister-in-law always makes delicious food but we were in for a real treat when she revealed the theme of burgers and milkshakes. She made the burgers at home using her own recipe and even managed to get hold of shop burger boxes to put them in.
Extra touches such as tiny American style flags and little boxes for the chips to sit in pulled the whole theme together.

We had some refreshing homemade strawberry and chocolate milkshakes in cute glass milk bottles, and to finish off we had sweet and sticky glazed doughnuts.

We all really enjoyed the good food and had lots of fun playing games for the rest of the afternoon.
