The Anne of Green Gables Birthday Party!

Can I just say...Good friends are priceless? My friend Karen slaved over this cake for over 7 hours yesterday...I helped frost it...but the construction of it is awesome! She used skewers!!! 3 cakes! She is a true mommy friend! I was thinking sheet cake with a drawing in store bought gel goop...but no, she said..."let's go vertical!" and here is the end result.
Did you know that this is the 100th aniversary of Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel ?I thought adding the porch was pushing things...but it's awesome! She frosted pretzel rods and graham crackers!Yummy!
The kids had a blast playing musical chairs, duck, duck goose, Little Sally Horner and making wool felt bookmarks...of course we got crafty!
The kids thought the cake was delish!
Here is their craftiness!
Threadibilities Craft kits for birthday parties are a great craft! Some kids sewed and others used glue...they all came out awesome! We opted for a huge 3 inch bookmark as Anne (with an "E") was a teacher and writer. The design was a butterfly on a circle and each and every one came out so different, it was a super self-esteem booster for sure.
Here is the silly, "sugar rush" photo!

All the kids got gloves...found them at Target! Thanks for the heads up Bridget!
Sara had to fix her hair! The butterfly hair bow is now long gone...she had a long day...but was a trooper through it all!

Wrapitup at etsy supplied the Chocolates.
It is a cute teddy bear tea with "Kindred Spirits" written on the wrapper as well as Em's birthday date and a thank you, good things really do come in small packages!
Ellie is modeling a great Spring Rainbow M2M headband from Lillyspunkinpatch and Emily is wearing the Cupcake Cutie cute!


  1. That looks so fun! You are a great mom.

  2. What a great Party!
    My daughter had a wonderful time at her 1st official tea party. Crafts, games, and "the coolest cake ever" my redhead described it!
    The kids looked adorable & had tons of fun.
    I think the mothers should have the same type of party soon!
    Great Job!

  3. The headbands look GREAT! Thanks for letting me make them for you.
