As I said when I shared her birthday invitations, Sage chose the theme of her birthday party when she got some wooden African skewers given to her at a garage sale this summer.
Because the thought of so many colours/patterns made my head spin,
we decided to go with a black, white and pink colour palette.
I set up the food/drinks on the piano.
Here are some close ups.
I had to use my new drink dispenser that I got this summer-- isn't it fabulous?
We had a choice of beverages...
And here are the cookies we made
(thanks to my friend, Elena who inspired me to make the cookies and then
endured many, many questions about icing them!)
Here's how we used the skewers...
And, for the cake, I decided to try to make an elephant. It turned out pretty cute, don't you think?
A photo of Sage and her guests....
And one more, posing with the journals we decorated for our craft...
Thanks for looking!
