Here's a few photos of Cheriese in her party dress. I could've made 5 dresses in the time it took me to pick a pattern and the 'just the right' fabric for her dress, but decided on a Spotlight "Get Creative" pattern I had in my collection - it is called "Little Girls Summer Dress" you can see a photo of it here. The fabric is a pretty floral cotton that had little silver shimmery threads through it to give it just the right touch of sheen. This is a fully lined dress, with a gathering of soft bridal tulle between the skirts layers to give it a sweet touch of fullness. I found the side zip to be very painful, but go there in the end (after countless attempts!)
I 'cheated' with her cake design and re-used my idea from the cup cake tower I made for my friend's baby shower. I love these towers, very nice and easy!
Of course the best thing about cupcakes is eating them!
We even got a very rare photo of both Steve and I together with our little party princess!
For her birthday we bought her a doll house and Jordan and Jai got to give her a prety gift box set filled with furniture and also a set of wooden dolls.
So far it's hard to work out which of my three little darlings enjoy playing with it the most!
The day was then spent with a picnic at the park, feeding the ducks and a big play on the playground.
Special "Thanks" and credit goes to Jordan for taking this photo, I just love it as I don't have many photos with me in front of the camera lately!To my dear sweet Cheriese, Happy birthday darling - I hope you enjoyed your special day and thank you so much for bringing so much joy to our lives!
