a lovely day for a cake party

olivia is turning eight tomorrow. it doesn't seem like she should be that old yet. time goes too fast. 
she asked to have a birthday party with some friends so that's what we did yesterday.
it was a cake party to be exact.
we had lunch, opened presents and decorated cakes. each girl got her own cake plate and mini cake. i taught them a few different ways to use the frosting tips and then let them go to town. it was cute to see their own little personalities shine through their decorating. 
we had a vintage theme going with different shades of pink and white. to keep with that theme, i took the pics with my "polaroid" camera.

the happy birthday girl
lunch. mini sandwiches, cookies, chips and lemonade. the girls took home mini bags of candy from the candy jars.
the whole gang
this is the cake i decorated for liv's actual birthday cake.
liv's finished project. i think she's hooked on decorating. she did a really good job!
happy birthday, olivia! love you!
