I don't know how it happened, but in a blink of an eye, my baby turned 5! That's it, baby-no-more, and now officially a 'big girl'. And I just had to celebrate it somehow while being in lockdown...no friends, no relatives, no party clown! It was just the 5 of us, home deliveries, zoom, and a whole lot of creativity.
Carla is my Spring baby, and I wanted her to wake up to an enchanted happy Spring day, so I went with tons of colour and a flamingo-themed cake!
I baked a gluten-free chocolate cake and I added a pink chocolate flamingo as the centre-piece which I found at Marks & Spencers...and I created the number 5 using white chocolate milk buttons. I dressed her in this cute little white tunic dress with colourful rims, also from M&S.
I designed and sent out a virtual party invitation using "paperless post" and had all her friends join via zoom!
It felt festive at home!
My pink checked dress is from Zara
And yes, happiness can be a piece of cake... Happy 5th Birthday my love xoxo
