Birthday Garden Party Series – Final

July 22, 2013
Birthday Garden Party Series | Madame Bonbon

My Birthday Garden Party Series is now complete. I started planning this little project about eight months ago. There was so much detail that went into every aspect of the garden party. I’m pleased to say that everything went so well. The sun was shining, we had a beautiful lunch whilst the children partied in their own room downstairs (under supervision of course he he) and our friends and family enjoyed themselves immensely. It was a very special day and a fun way to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Here are the final garden party details.

Images above: I had a birthday cake created by my favourite cake designer, Fiona at Too Cute Cakes. It was a rich chocolate mud cake layered with fresh strawberries.  The cake topper was custom made and the beautiful beeswax candles were made especially for me by Bumble. Rather than serve the cake at lunch, I arranged to have the cake cut and placed into small boxes for our guests to take home.

Image above: I love sparklers at all of my parties and so I placed a bundle wrapped in tags that read, “When the cake lights up, you know what to do”.  Just a bit of fun really.

Image above: We themed the party favours in the botanical theme with these handy notebooks and pencils by Field Notes. The favours were wrapped in kraft envelopes and a belly band of Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper.
