As it turned out, I spent the whole of Monday morning on an outing with my son's class; Tuesday morning in theatre; Wednesday, the whole day on a course; Thursday and Friday back in theatre...(Oh, and did I mention my husband was away over the weekend for a conference?!)
So, by the time the party arrived, I was feeling ragged. But my sister came to the rescue and helped set everything up, and I think we managed to pull it off...
I say think because it was just a blur of activity (in ganache-melting 36'C heat!)
Here are some pic's before everything (including the guests!) melted....
Mermaid photo prop (thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org)
The purple and aqua tutu that I made ... and that the party-girl refused to wear...
Children's treats table
Sea-themed cake pops
Shell and starfish cookies
...and the modelling chocolate mermaid cake topper, who succumbed to the heat like the rest of us!
I'll share the cake recipe I used on my next post.
Have a great week!
