This past weekend, I set up decorations at Marlyn's house (of Montreal Confections) for her daughter's 11th birthday. I also provided the party entertainment: the kids made altered notebooks and bookmarks with lawn fawn stamps that matched the party decor and my collection of copic markers. I hope you enjoy the party:
You may remember that wood backdrop from *this party* - it pays to keep party things!
Forest tree drink labels - they were so excited to drink out of these mason jars!
Do you see who the lawn fawn fox is checking out?
It's our foxy, in cookie form. I was so excited when I saw these! And, the frame too!
Isn't the owl adorable? I love that Marlyn didn't cover the whole thing in fondant - the texture from the buttercream matches the whimsical feel of the party so much better...
Marlyn's sweets are just so beautiful:
The party craft was to alter a notebook. Here's my original:
The birthday girl, holding her bookmarks. I love that she painted her nails so fancy for the party.
I hope you enjoyed looking at our woodsy party pictures! It's Jessika's actual birthday today - happy birthday, sweet girl! I hope you have a great day ♥.
So nice to revisit the party with your gorgeous photos, it was so great to work with you on it. Thanks so much for adding your magic to it all, it just would not have been the same without you.ReplyDelete

Oh my gosh...gnome cupcakes! Ok there is some seriously adorable project overload on your blog this week. I can't even comment on each and every one or else I'd never get anything else done. lol! You totally rock!ReplyDelete
Wow, this is so fabulous, Elena! I can't get over how wonderful everything is! And that owl cake-- okay that is the cutest thing I've ever seen! Sage wants to have an African party this year, but I think I might try to sway her to an owl party instead! LOL!ReplyDelete
I have a question.... how did you make those woodgrain covers for the notebooks? Is that a stamp?
haha - i would really just like to see what you would pull together for an African party.... I will definitely tell Marlyn how much you liked her cake! And the notebook cover is actually a piece of birch patterned paper. I don't know who makes it, unfortunately. Before the party, I cut the paper to fit the front of their notebooks, and adhered them with mod podge. They decorated them, and added another coat as a sealer over-top.Delete
Thanks, Elena! They look amazing!Delete
Maybe you could come to Manitoba and help me with Sage's party..... ;)
