Topic 7

What food do you think about when it is time to celebrate?? Is it just me, or does champagne come to mind first.  After all, what is a celebration without a bottle or two of bubbly?

Needless to say I have been struggling to associate a particular food with a celebration, upon asking around most people seem to think of cake when there is a celebration.  My next thought was the celebrations themselves, in our house it is mainly birthdays we celebrate, and sure enough, it is all about the cake.

Strawberry Cupcakes

It will be my gorgeous little girl’s fourth birthday at the beginning of May and she is already planning her party.  She plans to invite friends for a Princess and Pirates Tea Party. We have been doing the rounds together visiting op shops looking for gorgeous tea cups. I plan to use an image from this photographic shoot to make the tea party invitations for her party.
