We love birthdays at the little blue house. we had a wonderful birthday afternoon tea this weekend and kept it super simple. You can and it's fun.
I made 2 dozen basic cupcakes plus 3 dozen smartie cookies. Not tricky recipes just very simple. We had 25 under 7's on a rainy day...with so many eager helpers we formed the birthday boys name in cakes and cookies. decorating the cakes with a little whipped cream and a smarty on top. Plenty of candles all the way along for every one to blow out.
it was so much fun... and a little chaotic that the pics are very blurry... but I thought we would share anyway.
the guests took home a ball of homemade playdough just wrapped in plastic wrap with a little ribbon. simple inexpensive and a load of fun.
