The downside is when you are a working photographer, a baking expert wanna be, a "wish I could do kids birthday parties for a living" kinda mum, you end up giving yourself a ton more work than most people !
Thankfully the wonderful Miss SJ made the invites for Lilly using her Mad hatters download, and this was the start of things to come!
After realizing that china tea cups for a bunch of 7/8 year olds wasn't a perfect combo, I bought a few pieces for decoration and then found the most gorgeous paper plates, flags and cake stand that evoked old floral china; a much safer bet!

So with flowers in a Cath Kidston pink glass jug, china cups piled and toppling on the table overflowing with jelly beans and jelly babies, all adorned on a pretty floral tablecloth, it was time to pop some food on the table.
We had finger sandwiches, sausages, sausagerolls, cheese and pineapple, queen of hearts mini biscuits (jammy dodgers), cake pops, biscuit pops, Mad Hatter cupcakes that I slaved over, LOL, (and realize I am no sugar paste expert), and a selection of drinks.
The finale was the Rainbow Layer Cake, and boy did it impress me! I am not one for blowing my own trumpet, but this did look A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
The kids were mighty impressed as well, so a big thumbs up!
Tomorrow I will share the costumes, everyone really did out do themselves!
