I think I'm still recovering from my first official birthday party - a Butterflies and Freckles second birthday party for my niece Sarah.  It was a lot of fun to do but a lot of work for someone who is still learning this party business.  Mentally it was draining coming up with designs and ideas inspired by other parties I've seen without actually copying an entire party. And of course after I've looked at hundreds and hundreds of parties (no exaggeration), I start to worry that what I've come up with is an exact replica of someone else's!  It truly was very stressful and has made me question where I want to take this business and whether or not its for me.

Anyway, here are some photos from the party.  I'd love to hear what you think and I'd also love to know if any of you had the same doubts when you started out.

I should point out that I'm no photographer so setting up the table with the sun behind it was not the best idea...oh well, you live and learn.


This is the gorgeous birthday girl Sarah

A few thankyous and acknowledgements from me!

The Tim Tam Pops recipe can be found at Little Betsy Baker. They were quite goo-ey so I think next time I'd put less cream cheese in.

The party favours included an adorable crocheted headband.  I found the pattern for these at Busy Mom Designs on Etsy.  If you love to crochet, check out her stuff!

The Cake Pop holders were made by my wonderful Dad as was the stand for the cupcake tower. My beautiful Mum made all the 'adult' food.
