PARTY DETAILS, as told by Clair

I wanted to use a concept that reflected Alice’s bright and quirky personality, so “Sunshine and Lollipops” was the perfect choice.

The dessert table included a three tier chocolate mud cake, a cute yellow quilted cake with a single candle, chocolate coated oreos, orange and lemon fudge, lemon tarts, mango and orange jello, marshmallow pops, lots of orange and yellow candy, sugar pops, and vanilla cupcakes with buttercream. Drinks included spring water and homemade orangeade and lemonade.

Each child took home a colouful ribbon wand a a little box of candy sunshine.

Night Owl Crafts created a gorgeous sunshine picnic rug for the little ones to play on.
