Party stuff

Hello there & thanks for stopping by my blog today x

My Grandson's 1st birthday will be in March. I have mentioned already that I have been making invites, bunting, straws, cake toppers etc......
Well, now it's time to show you all.
I look forward to your comments & please do let me know if there is something I have missed!

There  are more pics than normal !

INVITES

Still need to add venue details on the reverse of invite.



CAKE WRAPPER 

CAKE TOPPERS 

My take on baking a cupcake & using a piping bag for the 1st time!
Can anyone give me a tip on how to make my butter icing firmer please? 

BUNTING 

The finished bunting says " happy 1st birthday Eddy". 

TOPPERS FOR STRAWS 

Not such a good pic!!!!
The PARTY BAG still has to be filled with goodies & the head cut down a touch.
