Joy’s Birthday pt.1

This is part talking about the party prep.
I always try to make the girls birthdays extra special, my mom always did that for my brother and I. My birthday was something I always looked forward to, I want that for the girls too.

Supply’s ~ Thank goodness for the dollar store! I purchased (all matching Princess theme) plates, cups, cutlery, birthday banner, centerpiece and goodie bags. As well as all the princess goodies to go in those bags.
Cake ~ I am making a doll cake. Yup the cake is the dress with a doll’s upper body out the top of the cake. I’ve baked the cake and will be decorating it tonight.
Punch~ I’ve purchased the punch fixings, and now am doing something ‘fun’. I’m cutting up citrus fruit (lime,lemon and oranges) to freeze into a giant ice cube to put in the punch bowl. Still have to do that….
Wands~ I came across a tutu wand on a blog and thought it would be so much fun.. it is fun, but not when I’m down to crunch time. I was supposed to do all these crafts last week…uh huh. I hope I can get them done in time. I’ll take pics.
Tutu ~ I decided to make Joy a tutu for her birthday… I cut the elastic to big, so I just need to fix that and it’s done.
Present ~ her gift has been purchased just have to wrap it…well stuff it in a gift bag as we are out of wrapping paper.
Flower balls ~ I have a cake pop book. I decided to attempt one, NOT for eating…no no for decoration… silly me! I’ve cut close to 200 flowers in each of three colours (Pink, yellow and blue). I’m going to glue them onto Styrofoam balls I’ve painted light green. Oh and stick them onto a stick, tie a bow on each stick and put them in a vase for decoration. I’ll post pics. I’ve cut the flowers and painted the balls..that’s it so far. Have to do the stick and glue the flowers on as well as their ‘pearl’ centers. I’m doing these last so if I run out of time oh well.

I’m also currently blogging instead of cleaning, wand making, ball doing etc etc..

Oh and my brother turned 30 at the end of April so I decided to make him his own cake (gluten free, cupcakes actually), it’s baked and I’ll decorate it tonight when I do Joy’s cake (his will be simple).

Guess I should get my butt in gear. I’ll post pics of all the prep work/finished work next. Here is a picture of the flowers made out of fondant I did ~
