Handmade parties

We are fast approaching the busiest time of year for parties in the lifetimeofdiy household. Here in Wales (not sure if it’s the same elsewhere?) the children who will be he oldest in the school year start school part time at 3. In little lady’s case it was those with birthdays between September and December. There were 10 that started and these 10 have become very close friends. As you can imagine little lady gets a number of party invites during this time. Plus we have 4 family birthdays before Christmas. It could be very expensive but we try to be sensible and limit our spending. Within the family a handmade card is the best present ever. We love all things handmade and would rather a homemade cake with fingerprints in the icing (baby D I am looking at you!) than a shop bought one.

The first birthday is my sister’s. Little lady calls her Anti. She has never added her name to the end like with the other aunties. She is just Anti. As a side note my brother is called Uncle πŸ™‚ he doesn’t have a name attached to the end either πŸ˜‰

So Anti’s birthday. Little lady and I made a cake. A pink cake.

We also made jelly that not only refused to come out of the mould but when it eventually did, it sagged and looked a bit pathetic 😦

And let’s not forget the handmade card

Anti loved her tea party and little lady was happy it was over with as that means that the next family birthday is hers!! πŸ˜€

  1. That card looks most professional! And Jellies that sag are the best sort – they go “wibble, Wobble” better than the more upright sort!
