Birthday Cards

Wednesday, June 15, 2011


Right before the shower, I had gotten a craft idea from Martha Stewart. She put flowers on a mini light set so that is what you see in the background. I bought extra Leis and took them apart and glued them to the lights. Hard to tell that they were on in this picture. Everyone had gotten a lei when the arrived.

Cookies in the baskets for the guest made by the grooms mother.
Yum, the bakery table all done by the grooms mother. Only a few calories and all so good.

Instead of a cake, she made three different types of cupcakes.

I made the cupcake wrappers in three colors, the one shown are raspberry cupcakes with a raspberry on top. Trying to the size for the wrappers was not as easy as it should have been. Tried several sizes first but not all cupcakes are created equal. I cut the flowers @1.5" to match the rest of the decorations. there was one light purple cut and then two of the darker purple with a toothpick in between with one flower being reversed.
