This week has been taken up with birthday picnic planning for my Victoria who is about to turn 6! How has that happened so fast???
I had visions of an old-fashioned picnic with bunting between trees, Jamie Oliver’s DIY truffles, and homebaked goodies. Earlier in the week my beloved informed me the weather which has until now been glorious, was meant to turn and the weather would be rubbish. After moments of panic I figured out a Plan B and prayed to our grandmothers. The power of the Nanas has worked and the weather is meant to be better than originally forecast, though if you could still cross your fingers for Victoria I would be most grateful! :)
And I will get back to icing cupcakes and her birthday cake (her only request was that there be lots of chocolate on it!), and baking cheese straws and cookies.
After I couldn’t find the vintage flower fabric that was in my head for the bunting, I settled on pink polka dots that will match the paper I used in her invites!!
The birthday countdown calendar has helped build up her excitement!
The laundry is a bit behind though! Priorities! :)
