When I was three I thought the world revolved around me

(Points for anyone who knows where that's from)

Anyway, the world *did* revolve around the little miss this weekend. Yesterday we had her party, and thank heavens the Splat glitter arrived in time because it adorned everything in sight.


Actually, I think I almost like the white stars more now.

And where there are little girls there has to be glitter, and fairies, so we got them all to paint these plaster casts, casting aside all cares for the carpet:


I went a bit mad - struck down by some sort of crafting disease - and decided on Saturday to raid my fabric stash and make the party bags instead of buying plastic ones. Well, they can all use reusable shopping bags like their mums now - and I felt better about not filling them with plastic stuff too!


We all had such fun that no-one noticed the time till 40 minutes after the official party finish!

  6. Hehe I bet your little girl thinks that you're fab!

    Wonderful little party bags. The last party I organised I used paper boxes the kids decorated themselves with stickers and such. I enjoyed thier creations as much as they did and was deemed the "cool" older sister.

    Funny you should bring up that song as my mom, god mom and I were singing it, and several others, very loudly (and out of tune) on Sunday. We'd found a load of old lyrics I'd written out years ago.

    My comments always seem so long in comparison with everyone elses, sorry! lol

  9. The glittery cake and the bags look wonderful - am I too old to pretend to be 3? I'm sure I could squeeze into my old party dress!

    I'm glad it went without a hitch, your little one is a Very Lucky Girl indeed!

  10. Those glittery cakes look divine. I like making party bags too - that way you don't need to put as much in them as they get the bag as a present too! Glad it was a success.

  18. what a yummy looking cake! We did fabric party bags for my daughter's birthday party this year, and there was not a piece of plastic in sight - I felt so much happier that the bits and bobs weren't going straight into the bin like every other party bag we seem to get!!!!

  19. Brilliant - I hope your fabric party bags set a new trend... though lots of mums will be very irritated if they have to do the same (lol)!
