Last Friday when it was Bubble Gum´s real birthday we invited the grandparents for some cake, coffee and bubbles. As with the morning photos the lighting in the evening was not much better and I had the guests waiting so I took a few hurried pictures of our table. It always feels a bit awkward to take photos when the guests have arrived. But I wanted to share them regardless. I made a very simple cream cake with whipped cream, strawberry jam, fresh strawberries & banana between the layers. I coloured the whipped cream pale pink to match the table. You can find the recipe for the cake here.
The loveliest napkins, papercups & straws are from Juhlahumua. I made a blog collaboration with them for Bubble Gum´s birthday for her friends coming up this Sunday. You will see more next week ( or the week after)!
It was the first time she cut her own cake and it made her so happy ( so I had to share some photos of that concentrated smile…). My little big girl! Her most wished for birthday present also came through on Saturday when my brother came over with a skateboard! She is so much cooler than her mom…
