A couple of weeks ago Liberty turned 9!
This year she requested an 'Alice in Wonderland' party.
She asked me to make her an 'Alice' dress...I finished it at midnight the night before the party.
My helpful hubby built me a trestle table especially for the party!
I've done many parties for other people in the past year but Liberty had a lot of her own ideas for her party!
We made all the cookies and cupcakes.
The birthday cake with a candle in a little tea cup!
She's a girl with refined taste - she asked for macarons! So I made mini macarons.
The party guests all got a china teacup to take home.
The take home cookies.
It was Liberty's idea to have the girls make a collage at the party.
Everyone had fun!
The teacup printies are from the Graphics Fairy.
We used Liberty's playhouse as a photo booth.
My wonderful friend Pauline was once again my star photographer.
The girls all had fun making themselves look extra tall!
'Throw the Sugar Cubes into Teacups' was a fun game!
They also played croquet.
There was lots of laughter!
Liberty had very definite ideas about how the invitation should look.
She asked me to make a pop-up card.
When I said I wasn't sure I could do that she replied, "But mum, you can do anything!"
As it turned out I discovered I could make a pop-up!
It was another great party and all the little ladies really enjoyed themsleves!
Liberty said it was better than she had even imagined!
As for me - I'm all partied out!
