Celebrating Miss 3

The celebrations for Miss 3 are finally over! Phew. It was lovely to make a big deal out of her birthday this year, as three is an age where you really get what's happening. She has also had not only a big brother but a range of housemates to contend with for attention since she was born, so we felt it was really important for her to know just how special she is and have a day that was all about her. Our gorgeous girl was showered in love and celebrated well!! Here are some pics from her lovely little party on the weekend. The weather was perfect, so we took it outside!!

Lots of bunting, including the "Happy Birthday" flags I made last year.

Cookies in thrifted gingham pouches were hidden in the garden for a treasure hunt.

Pass the Parcel!

Dress ups!

 
Our cheeky little Birthday poppet.

Our housemate, Maria, made some beautiful East Timorese food. Maria is an Asylum Seeker, and her kindness and generosity once again blew me away after the lack of kindness she has received from so many in this country.
 
Little cakes, I made the flag toppers with toothpicks and washi tape.
 
Pink jelly!
 
Food.
 
I made this cake topper too with washi tape.
 
Beautiful icecream cake made by "Nananette", Mr Coleman's mum. It was perfect, and a much missed speciality of hers while she lived in Taiwan for the past 5 years. So nice having her and Grandad back in Melbourne.
 
I have been sewing up a storm recently and have nearly finished the Starter Issue of Hundreds and Thousands Mag.
 
So lots more posts soon, promise!!
