Saturday evening saw our family and Genevieve's close friends celebrating her 18th birthday. In keeping with the personality of the birthday girl, I made a chocolate cake and chocolate cupcakes decorated with all sorts of nonsense.
It was all about colour, spots, stripes and patterns. A little bit bright and bubbly to match Genevieve's personality.
The before picture. Hubby had to do a little surgery to the main cake. I like to keep things real. :)
Here is Genevieve standing next to her cousin.
I don't think this photo needs any explanation.
As well as a multitude of balloons and streamers, I scattered fairly lights around which looked very pretty.
The chicken balls, the chicken nuggets, sausage rolls were the biggest hit with the young ones. The older ones, ahem, got stuck into the cheeses and other more sophisticated food. Hubby had an emergency dash to buy more drinks as I underestimated the thirst of dancing girls. Ooops! And just to add a touch of something healthy, I made a huge fruit platter to snack on which was very much enjoyed.
Just because I can, I'm showing you one more photo of Genevieve which was taken in February this year before her school formal. This would have to be my favourite photo of Genevieve, she's gorgeous.
Today was all about recovering from a very late night, the preparations and snacking on leftovers.
Have a great week,
