Let them eat cake

Well here is the finished cake table (or the cake tableau as we were calling it!).  There were a selection of cakes that needed bringing together with one theme.  As the overall party theme was 1960s the paper flowers and copious amounts of dolly mixtures did just the trick. The tablecloth didn't look quite so creased on the day... I must point out that the turquoise flower in the bottom left was made my friend Ilze (just in case her sister is reading this! Hello Ilze's sister!).  Here are some close ups:

And how serindiptously they tied in with the table decorations (I had no idea pink and green was the theme!).

And most importantly, the birthday girl, Joan, who was over the moon with both the cake and how the whole party went. 
We all had a fantastic time with the games, scrummy tea and cakes, dancing to the sounds of the 60s, space-hopper races, lots and lots of laughter and rounded it all off with a trip to the chippy on the way on  home! A perfect day.

Thank you both! Glad you liking the site and definitely get making your own, Ilze's sister (I know she told me your name and I've forgotten!). Let me know the address when you do - it is really quick and easy to set one up and I can't wait to see your creations. I've seen your teddy and also a picture of the quilt you made - absolutely stunning!
