Coffee shop birthday

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

This years theme for Bubble Gum´s eight birthday was ” coffee shop” or Nicole´s Café to be precise. It was her idea and I was happy to indulge. She is still very much in to pink and perhaps will always be so the colours for her party were quite easy to choose. And why would I say no to baby pink & white. We added some scalloped edges and we had a “look”. My kids are very in to frappuccinos, although they do not get to indulge in them very often, so it was what she wanted to serve. I ” hired” her big sister with her bestie to come help me as barista´s in the coffee shop and it was the best decision ever. First of all they had a lot of fun and secondly I saved myself a lot of trouble. They dressed in matching white sweaters, cupcake aprons and tied L´adurée scarves in their hair to make out a uniform. We looked up frappuccino recipe´s online, did a few trial runs and came up with a menu. I will share the basic recipe with you on another post.

I painted a little coffee shop gift card that we scanned and printed and attached to the invitation so that everyone had ” money” to spend in the coffee shop. All the kids seemed to have a great time and everyone went home with a little thank you ” keep cup” for a hot drink to have on the go.

Here are the gazillion pictures from the party if you´d like to see…

Boxing Day brunch

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Tapaninpäivän brunssista tulikin tänä vuonna enemmän lounas kuin brunssi. Teimme paahtopaistia, ihania valkosipuli & salvia paistinperunoita, ruusukaalia pinjansiemenillä, parmesaanin kanssa uunissa paahdetuja neulapapuja ja salaattia jossa oli syvänvihreiden lehtien lisäksi punajuurta, hunajapaahdettuja pähkinöitä ja kuivattuja karpaloita. Leivoin aamulla tuoreita sämpylöitä ja tarjolla oli myös joululimppua, suolakidevoita ja toki vielä juustojakin. Jälkiruuaksi tarjosimme jouluisia kakkuja, itse leivottua maustekakkua ystäväni äidin huikealla reseptillä tehtynä, Fortnum & Masonilta Lontoosta tuomaani Englantilaista joulukakkua ja panettonea. Sen lisäksi oli vielä suklaita ja itsetehtyjä piparkakkuja. Joimme jälkiruokakahvit takkatulen ääressä.

Our little butterfly

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

Cotton Candy turned nine. Nine years old! She is not a baby anymore. We had a very simple and chic party for her that we had invited family and Godparents to. We served a vegetarian lasagna with some salad and wine and afterwards cake and ice-cream with whipped cream and meringues ( usually the kids favourite). Here are a few photos from the party…
