A Diggers & Dump Trucks Birthday Party !



Yesterday we celebrated my eldest baby's 3rd Birthday. Wow, I can't believe Jack is 3!

We had a diggers and dump trucks themed party, you may have seen the invite I designed quite a while ago (I love planning parties so like to get organised nice and early). I think the highlight of the day for Jack was the cake... white choc mud with chocolate frosting and violet crumble on top, Jack is just like his mummy and loves his cake ! I kinda cheated and got a plastic dump truck to sit on the cake because there was no way I would have had time to make one with a 6 week old baby (I don't think I could have done it anyway...too hard), anyway I was really happy with the way the cake turned out..what do you think?

The little tins for the orange M&Ms and the orange buckets are from the fantastic online shop www.detailsdetails.com.au I made stickers for the tins, cupcake toppers and a birthday banner to match the birthday invites (I didnt get a good pic of the banner....I seriously need to invest in an SLR camera).

What party can I plan next?.....baby Max's naming day! YAY!.. it will be a baby elephant theme (I already made a few purchases for it before he was born, couldn't help myself hehe).
