We celebrated 7 this weekend. And we did it with blue birds.
We started with her outfit. She pick and loved this great fabric for her skirt.
I finally pulled out my new silhouette and used it to make her shirt. I wish I had bought vinyl heat transfer when I bought my machine, but I'm cheap and didn't. By the time I decided what I wanted, it was to late to have it shipped. Instead I used heat n' bond to the back of some white cotton, cut out my letters and sewed them on. It was a big mess, but I made it through it and love the shirt.
I also love the little birdie.
Of course she needed a hat to match.
I think this was the last year she'll wear a party hat. I hate seeing my kids grow up.
Thanks for the any suggestions that were sent our way. In the end this is what she wanted.
I love the birds, branches and flowers.
I have to brag for a second about how good this cake tasted. I think this is one of the best tasting cakes I've ever made. For birthday cakes like this, I usually make white cake with fondant. My daughter requested chocolate cake with mint frosting. That blue frosting is yummy vanilla-mint goodness. And to top it off, I put chocolate ganache in between the layers. I may or may not have eaten two slices for breakfast.
We did a little decorating too.
I used left over fabric to make bunting and placed paper birds above all the door frames in the room. I cut some more of that fun lettering with the silhouette and tacked it up with scrapbook tape.
She's a little old for balloons for I added some drama with the pom-poms.
She didn't want o go to bed that night, for in the morning "my birthday will be over."
