A French Birthday Party

My darling Stella had her seventh
birthday while I was in France...

Time to party and eat cake!!!
A special cake as you can see,
made according to instructions
from the very talented
of Pretty Far West blog.

Please visit Mise on her special
'doll cake link' here and
here for the layout instructions...
you will love reading Mise's blog
she has a wicked sense of humour!

Sweet Jessie was very keen to
get her fat little fingers into
the cake too!!!

I love pressies

and of course with the Kiwi connection
we had  games like 'pass the parcel'
(new to french kids - they loved it)!

Roxy wanted to join in
'musical cushions' too!

a quick drink and......

a handful of these
and back to the fun!

Thank you Mise
for your wonderful cake idea -
it was a huge hit in France!!

Please don't forget to visit

links on my

Thank you dear friends
for popping in to see me,
you've all cheered me up and
I'm feeling great again!!
Love you!

Be kind to one another
warm hugs

Welcome home. I wondered where you were, I have such a hard time keeping up. The party looks Tres French and fun.
I am off myself next month, going walk-about French style.
Trying to make it home also, will do before too long. Could see you again which would be lovely

Dearest Shane,

Certainly these photos will bring the memories back in a way that you miss them even more so... It is tough for letting go! But you did bring some lovely Kiwi culture over to your sweet grandchildren. The cake looks like something very special indeed.
Hugs to you,

That's a great cake for a little girl (well, it's a great cake for a big girl too!).

That is one cute cake. We always play pass the parcel at baby showers but I have a few friends who would get a bit out of hand with the whole thing. Glad to hear the kids had a good time. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Tammy

Love the cake and confections in their girly colors! I never heard of pass the parcel-looks like everyone had a great time.

Mary said...

Such a fun party - love that you taught the French girls some new games. Personally I always loved 'pass the parcel'. Beautiful cake and the children are adorable. So happy you were there to share a very special Birthday Shane.

Hugs - Mary

What better cake for a 7 year old.
It looks like they all had a fun party even the baby. How precious.
