My baby girl turned 8 last week… and we hosted a DIY Crafternoon Party to celebrate! The invitation list was whittled to 10 girls and 1 boy, and after consulting with my daughter she decided she would like a “Pink and Red theme with Strawberries, Moshi Monsters, Flowers and Rainbows”… a complete 8 year old mash up! So this is what I did…
Cake – Pink ombre layered cake with freeze dried strawberries and ditsy floral straw name bunting
Food – simple sandwiches with pink and red cakes and biscuits, fresh strawberries and pink cupcakes.
Activities – Paper Flower Headbands, Giant Rainbow Paper Flowers, Moshi Monster design your own tee shirt (using neon fabric pens)
Goody Bag – Taking home all the bits they made, plus a slice of cake and a bespoke initial cross stitch shoe bag project I made.
All in all, I think we made it work and all had crafty fun (interspersed with the obligatory quick dance to One Direction) for a snip!
Hope you had fun this weekend too x
PS – please forgive lack of professional photography – and quick snapped ‘on my phone’ pics, as I was busy making paper flowers, drawing moshi monsters and eating cake!
