At some point I had to replace the „Easter“ decoration with something new. So here it is. All themed around traditional English „Afternoon Tea“ with lot´s of vintage china, roses and lace. I just love all of the romantic details. The colour palette is with soft pastels and all of the sweet little details leave me once again planning another fabulous tea party soon. The only thing missing are the cakes so I better start baking.
After so many nice reaction on the Crochet Flower Garland with over 2500 pic views on Flickr, I felt encouraged by you and by the upcoming warm spring weather (really now, I promise) to continue the „series“. So here´s the latest, my „Sweet Spring Crochet Flower Wreath“ I am very proud of. If you look closely enough you even see some cute little animals living there. I count the happy mushroom that my hubby’s sister brought to life as an animal.
A friend is having a larger family get together today and asked me for ideas on how to offer little sweet things ‚buffet style‘. The main focus was: kids should love it. I started by educated guessing that kids like ice cream and colours. Since I am always fascinated by cute things that are a little vintage looking, I came up with this Vintage Cake Pops Ice Cream Parlour.
As you know, for me, the idea is not enough. When it´s in my head, I have to build it. With the help of a friend who is good in DIY things the booth was set up. I painted it with some light spring colours and filled it up with cake pops sweets that I tried to look like ice cream. Unfortunately the weather still does not want us to enjoy real ice cream. I am especially proud of my ‚accident cone‘ that looks like someone has dropped it.
As a birthday present I got Bunny shaped Cookie cutters and I wanted to create something special with them. My only problem: Today being the last day of the Easter. So I had to hurry, bake the cookies and apply the fondant decoration. Time pressure and my impatience when it comes to making tiny things is usually not a good combination. But today, maybe because of the sun, it worked extraordinarily well. As a reward, because Easter is almost over, I can eat them all. Yummy.
