How to throw a garden party in style in this city where open space is so hard to come by? My forever-stylish cousin came up with a children-and-adult-friendly version for her daughter’s 1st birthday party.
She picked an animal/jungle theme and the marquee and garden were transformed into tropical rainforest with balloons and the craftsmanship of a team of balloon artists.
Fortunately the birthday cake measured up to the amazing balloon decorations. Cute cartoon versions of lion, elephant, hippo, giraffe, monkey etc all happily dotted around a waterfall.
Have always been skeptical about the taste of any novelty cakes as they typically look much better than they taste. However, this animal-themed creation from Cake2 was airy and light – mixed fruits and fresh cream layered with vanilla chiffon cake.
Other treats to keep those little faces smiling are lollipops. These are truly edible rainbows on sticks! Just look at the colours. What’s not to love?
How would you throw a garden party for your friends and family?
