Birthday Bonanza

I like birthdays.  You get to eat cake, be silly and use excessive amounts of ribbon!
It's my birthday this weekend, and no exceptions will be made on the being silly and eating cake front. 
I like my friend's birthdays best though, because you get to give presents! And this year I made a couple of presents and bits and bobs for my wonderful friend's birthdays. 

My beautiful friend turned the big 21, and to celebrate the festiveness I made some loot bags! Using brown paper bags and some MT Washi sticky tape the loot bags wrapped up marvellous lollies from A Spoonful of Sugar.  And of course, Bird, Bike and myself didn't mind going to a Spoonful of Sugar to load up on the loot! Twizzlers, Peanut Butter Cups and Clouds were definitely being purchased.

Birthday cakes smothered with white Betty Crocker icing and smarties are my favourite to make, and canvas pillows with eccentric patterns and designs are a creative way to make your friends personality shine through furnishings!

Our friend's birthdays are always such a grand affair, making cakes, buying flowers and buying "joke" presents.  I like joke presents best.  Lava lamp keyrings, lawn mower figurines and maracas seem to make birthdays that little more special, and full of sillyness x


  1. Oh, what a lovely pillow that is.
