I can’t believe we are almost halfway through June ! May absolutely flew past me in a haze of tutus and cupcakes ! The girls turned two and we had a small gathering to celebrate ! The weather came good for us and enabled my slightly bigger than twin daddy approved guest list to spill out into the garden !
This year I decided to go for a beauty and the beast theme for the birthday. The girls love the film and always dance to the ballroom scene so I thought it would be a cute theme.
We had a late afternoon party so I decided to do a mini desert table with the birthday cake as centre stage. My lovely friend made the cake to tie in with the pink & yellow colour scheme. We had little cookies in the shape of Mrs Potts, Chip & Belles dress, yellow belle cupcakes and tiara shaped sandwiches.
I made little food tags, welcome signs and added a large belle as a focal point on the table.
Little touches included the wooden initials and number 2 which I painted in pink and yellow, then a dusting of table confetti finished it off. I also had a copy of beauty and the beast for guests to sign and leave birthday wishes for the girls.
I decided to invite a special guest to entertain the little ones and Princess Belle was luckily available to attend to sprinkle a final dusting of magic to the party.
Instead of party bags I did little bottles of princess bubbles with a thank you tag.
It was a lovely afternoon of dancing & eating cake with our special friends and family. I’m always exhausted but sad when it’s over !
The girls are growing up so fast and the birthdays remind you how far they have come. I’m so blessed to be able to have two special ladies call me mama and it’s such a treat to plan their birthdays – can’t wait for next year !
