Welcome to my monthly blogging carnival! This month, in honour of Lara's 2nd birthday, we're sharing our stories about children's birthday parties and birthday cakes. Here's a selection of great posts with inspiration for party ideas and children's birthday cakes.
Cheryl at Welcome back to the Madhouse was made a pink birthday cake by her daughters! You can see the finished article in a post a couple of days later!
At A Matter of Choice a gorgeous young man has been celebrating his 2nd birthday with a fun party and a Mickey Mouse theme.
Susan K Mann celebrated her son's 4th birthday with a party at a soft play centre. A great idea for getting out of the house and taking some of the pressure off arranging a party.
Currently on A Major Love of Film there is a whole series of blog posts about party planning. From venue ideas to invitations. From party games to food inspiration. Its all there!
At Yummy Mummy, Flabby Tummy Laura has celebrated a 2nd birthday and a 4th birthday in the space of a week! This post sees the aftermath and a picture of some gorgeous looking cupcakes!
At Fuss Free Flavours there is a fab recipe for some 'Mad Scientist' cupcakes!
Kids Party Heaven is an entire blog on this month's carnival theme! Rather than choosing a specific post, I thought I'd just point you in the direction of the blog. Some of my favourite posts are on ideas for saving money but there are some really impressive recent posts on face painting ideas.
At Simply Fabulous there are some great pictures of a really wonderful first birthday, a brilliant cake and a very happy little girl.
And finally, here at Mellow Mummy we have been celebrating Lara's 2nd birthday. I blogged about her birthday cake (the photo above) and presents this year. Last year we had a birthday BBQ and Lara had a Makka Pakka cake; we also celebrated her first birthday with all of the other babies from our NCT group with a picnic in the park!
