treasure island theme party


i helped a neighbour recently do a musical-themed party (because her daughter’s name meant flute). cake had a peacock feather and a flute…
1. we got the moms to wrap the children in toilet paper and make them look like flutes
2. a little game of musical housie — with names of instruments written on paper cards
3. and such like

when i was pleased at myself no end for persuading my friend out of a non-disney non-princess theme…

my friend in chennai, has a “pirate”/treasure-island themed party for her son
— and she baked the cake at home.
i loved the candles that went on the side…

(last time her husband apparently took the photos a little laaate — there were only crumbs on the scene)
this time he did better:-)

  1. those candles (and the cake too) are magnificent. does she take orders? i will grocery shop (if she gives me a list), press her feet, wash dishes (no surprises there!), etc. for her in return for a cake that does not have Dora The Explorer’s Extra Large Head on it.

    • she’s a super mum just like you… working mum, marathon running,
      (and going going gone at 100 billion ideas per nanosecond)

  2. Love the cake..How I wish I could get anything other than Disney princess, Poo bear cakes for a kids B’day..
