6 years old…

…and the big day finally arrived!
After long discussions we came to a mutual understanding that the birthday theme would be fairytale/forrest-y/Pet Shop, a mash-up of everything to keep both mother and daughter happy 🙂
Then on a trip to Ikea, this bathmat turned out to be the inspiration for most of the decor.
HAMPEN motta B80xL80cm. Skærgrænt
So after some DIY-ing and featuring the bathmat prominetly, I give you the birthday party:
Start by showing some photos and maybe some more details further down the road…
…the bathmat was cut into three even strips and placed as a runner on the table, a little bit woodsy and reminded me of grass…
…chocolate cake with white fondant and woodland decor…
…the cake seen from all angels 😉 …
…love the little bird cages…
…all the little details…
…I always decorate the chandelier, and this time I used Smycka flowers from Ikea and some butterflies that I cut out by hand…
….I also found these little bluebirds and I adore them!
…wait for it, there is still plenty to come…
…I made the small fondant-mushrooms on the cake, and then had some small mushrooms “growing” from the table runner grass…
…and I when found these gorgeous mushroom candles I almost shrieked outloud in the store 😉
…and after placing them on the cake I could not have been more content….
…a little tip for birthday parties, I serve milk that I just add a little food coloring to and then, tadaa you have pink princess milk – always popular with the little girlies 🙂
…all the placesettings come from Ikea…
…and finally my beautiful birthday girl!

    I love everything you did! If you don’t mind telling, what kind of branch is that and where can I find one?

    You are so talented! I came across this party on Pinterest and I two bought the same bathmat to make a runner at my daughter’s upcoming woodland party… And here I thought I was so clever! I love all of your ideas, very inspiring!
