Let`s Party



Wow......we had a blast....and enjoyed every moment........

It was a fancy dress......you had to dress as someone or something beginning with a M......as it was Megan`s party.......her 14th.....and yes, she`s officially a teenager now.....

The birthday girl dressed as a Medieval Princess and her beau as a Medieval Archer....we had Mickey and Minnie, Old MacDonald, Mrs McGregor, Morticia, a musician, Maid Marian, the Mafia, Monica Lewinsky and a whole bunch of other "M"`s

Everything was a huge success...except for....the cake......

For the first time in my life, I tried to decorate with marzipan......never realising that a chocolate cake won`t do the thing....... Why can`t I be like normal people ......no...for a first try, it had to be a 3 layered one....with the first layer a chocolate cake...oh dear......everything was stunning and very, very pretty and IndigoGirl and myself, were very proud of ourselves........until we saw the cake the next morning.........talk about disappointment.

The top 2 layers gently glided off the chocolate pink "joker" layer and greeted us almost top down ....it was hilarious. We could "almost" salvage the top 2 layers and pasted butterflies and flowers and tried to camouflage all the holes and imperfections

We didn`t have a perfect cake....but we had loads of fun......and it was yummy......see some more pics on IndigoGirl`s blog

I will post the "almost finished" room a bit later.........

What a FABULOUS idea!!! Love it! I am going to show my 12 year old, perhaps she'll be inspired for next year! And I think the cake looks marvelous - I have never done anything like that with marzipan, bet it tasted incredible!

Such a wonderful party! Your cake story brought back wonderful childhood memories of a tilting house and holding layer cakes together with toothpicks-because more than once gravity had taken hold of the top layers of cake.

How absolutely fun! I am sure your daughter will remember all your loving efforts!

Felicia said...

Groovy, sounds like a good time was had by all!

Kahshe Cottager said...

What a fun idea for a party and how busy you must have been. Sometimes it is the 'flops' that create the most fun and long-lasting memories but I am sure the cake was tasty regardless!

ElPoeta said...

It looks like you did have fun and I'm glad you did, Gypsy. Your girl was really gorgeous. Love and kisses,
V.

Oh my gosh- I have had cake mishaps myself that were quite similar to yours- They are not really mishaps of course because they werejust too sweet and too fun. Now I just stick to painting them... Love your blog- link trade?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, it is not often that I meet a fellow South African. Your blog is gorgeous, love the French vintage theme, and love your theme party photos. We actually belong to a club where we have a different theme party about every 3 months or so.We have had so many fun evenings.Our last one was the Arabian Nights.
I am also glad to read about the origin of the Thinking Blogger's award, as I was given one too (I was really surprised) and happily nominated 5 others without really knowing what it was all about. Now I can at least go back with the answer, of where this originated from.
Have you visited my sister's blog, Bonnie? She is also into altered art and vintage things, and also makes the most beautiful cards. She actually also has a swap on at the moment. I have given her your link as I know she will love your blog. Here is hers:

gilfling said...

Oh what a wonderful party it looks!! And what a great idea for a 'themed' fancy dress party. I did chuckle at your cake 'almost' disaster!! The room looks wonderful too - I am sure your daughter must be delighted.

stilettoheights said...

it sounds like a wonderful party, the whole time I was wondering what I would have dressed as....I think I would have gone as a "model" all glammed up and acting like a diva.

nicol said...

Looks like a wonderful party and what a beautiful girl! You'll always laugh later about the cake!
I laughed out loud and can so relate to your comment "why can't I be normal!" The beauty and curse of creative people!!

What FUN!!! I love the "M" theme idea. That's so very clever. Sorry to hear about the cake, but it's great that you were able to salvage and enjoy it.

I just love reading your posts!

AnnieElf said...

It looks like we are all agreed - it was FUN in capitals and your daughter is an emerging beauty. I love your party theme and the ingenuity people brought to the costumes. I visited Indigo Girl too. Fab cake.

Hi again,

Love your blog, so fun and interesting. Was wondering if you were going to share some pictures of my little fairy furniture some time?? I've posted lots of new things on my blog and there's tons of pretty things on my site. I would be thrilled to be included on your blog.

Thanks,
take care,
Debbie Schramer
