I wanted to make the fabrics very folky, loved the woodland cupcake wrappers from
The Cupcake Wrapper Co.
Belinda from Sweet Treats, cakes and cupcakes, made the AMAZING cake and cupcakes!!

Boxes filled with honeycomb
and really the most beautiful cookies in the world from
Spoon and Fork

handmade chocolate owls and squirels made by Archie and I

AMAZING! hey, truly breathtaking

I love to put unexpected things on tables, so we sourced logs og wood and I found this sweet sqirrel neckalce to hang from it, so cute! and I have it in memory of the day to keep forever.

green toffee apples and almond bread.. mmmmmm

little treats, printables Love The Day

My little boy turned 4 on late November, we worked together on his party, not long after he turned 3 he told me that he wanted his next party to have owls and squirrels, I suggested some gnome folk to keep the animals happy and a 'Woodland Folk' party was born.

He very carefully selected the guests, he is a shy little guy and only wanted people on 'his' list, so we went about sending inviatiosn to 40 family and friends.

I was originally goign to do it at home, but we were looking at a property for sale and happened upon this old hall on the edge of a forest and I was hooked.

It was so much fun making everything, including sewing the sweet table background by hand.. wont do that again in a hurry! and it was a really hot day so it ended in true Aussie style with all the kids down to there underwear having a water fight....

So much fun!

Happy Birthday Archie ... You have my heart!
