All sugar and spice...

Little Miss 2 is turning 3 soon!

You know just how quickly time is flying by when your little baby is turning into a little girl and her little baby brother who I brought home from hospital what seems like only yesterday, is almost 8 months old!

It was a no brainer as to what sort of party she would want. All girl! There is nothing that Little Miss 2 loves more than cake, dresses and looking beautiful. Tell her that there is cake for dessert after she finishes her dinner, and that dinner will be gone in no shorter than 5 minutes. Obviously, it takes even less time for the cake to go!

So, it will be a little Tea Party for Little Miss 2. We've already sent out the gorgeous Sambellina invites which I thought were just perfect for the occasion. We received so many 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' over how special they are when the invites went out...people also commented on how organised I was. (I'm trying very hard not to leave it to the last minute!)

I'm thinking red and white polka dots with a splash of pink, mini cupcakes, scones with jam and cream, petite chocolate eclairs, a selection of sandwich fingers, mini jelly cups, and of course, special 'tea' served in porcelain cups and saucers. My DH keeps telling me not to go overboard with it all...who says I'm going overboard??

The only question now is the cake!

A little bit of Trivia...

After a relaxing two week break, I was back at work putting together lollyboxes for every attendee and support of a Trivia night that I was attending. The Trivia night was organised to support a local family who had been affected by an illness. It was wonderful to see how people in the community gathered together at such an event to raise money for this family as they learn to cope with the physical and financial challenges that are ahead. It's also a reminder of how precious life and health is and how we should not take anything that we have for granted.

Our minds are ticking away as our very own charity is in the works! Watch this space...
