Diya's Pink Party!

Hi Everyone
Saturday was a big day for my little niece who turned 1 ( well she turned 1 on Feb.14.11 but celebrated on Sat.) Here is the little munch kin :)

 It was my first time planning a party and to tell you the truth its a lot harder than it looks!!! I also didn't get some of the items as planned due to not feeling well!!! I could only make the cake and couldn't make the cupcakes as  originally planned. However we all had a great time and everyone went home with full bellies and a smile on their faces :)
Well in my case I overate :) lol!!!
Here are some of the photos of the party. Hope you guys like it : )












 I have to say Thank you to 2 very special people who have inspired me to take this task on.  Natalie from Southern Belles Charm and Paula from Frog Prince Paperie. You guys have to check out their websites, because they really know how to  throw a party!!! My small scale party is nothing compared to these ladies!!! However I had a blast doing it and will definitely try it out again :)

  3. Good Morning Manni Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh GIRL, did you ever throw a beautiful party. What have you been waiting on? You did such an awesome job here.

    I love the cake. From the little daisies to the little ladybugs. Oh Manni it is beautiful. I especially love that little duckie on top. Does that say LOVE or what? You really nailed this cake right on the head. It is the perfect one for a 1st birthday and I love it.

    Now the little jars filled with treats, oh how sweet is that. I love that you made labels for each jar, what a sweet idea. Your Banner looks so radiant on the wall sweetie.

    I would give you a perfect 10. You did an awesome job. My birthday is coming in April. Wink...Wink...

    Hope you have a glorious day sweet one. As always, a beautiful share and your talents just tickle me to pieces. You my dear, are going places. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

My Photo
I have many passions in life, but what I’m passionate about is CAKES! I’m a self taught baker and I’m vegetarian! Cake decorating brings me into my own little world; it’s when my imagination and artistic abilities come to life.

Besides my obvious passion for all things sweet and sticky!!! I love to create (anything and everything), read, anything that is cute, clever and handmade. I also love a good idea!!!
