A Rainbow Party

Yesterday we held a 2nd Birthday Party & Christening celebration for Harper. What a day! Surrounded by all the very closest of our family & new friends down here we shared a meal, had a drink {or two} and celebrated with our beautiful little girl in the only way she deserves – full of colour, and joy and so much love and happiness!

I was just a little bit excited when it was time to cut open that cake…such a shy girl that I am!

I then managed to pose in my best Sale of the Century Model shot…how could I not? LOOK AT IT!

Today I am beyond exhausted and am just two bathrooms off having the house cleaned and back to normal. I will be sure to fill you in on the details of the cake & decorations etc, but right now Mama needs a good cup of tea and a lie down…


  1. Beth, it looks fabulous! Harper is totally adorable in that blue dress with perfect hair and wee clippy to the side! And speaking of perfect hair – she obviously gets it from you! Love your Sale of the Century Pose – totally needed after such cake creation!!!! Happy cleaning!

  2. You did GOOOOOD Beth! I’m so impressed.

    Did the cake taste amazing? I am so hungry right now I could eat the whole thing (damn bridesmaids dress doesn’t fit and I have less than 4 weeks to go!).


  3. What a wonderful party it looks like everybody had a great time.. especially the birthday girl! As for the look of that cake D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!

  4. Looks amazing Beth!

    Where did you get the glass soda bottles and straws from? I have been looking for some for ages, but haven’t been able to find any.


  5. You’ve made me a happy woman Beth.

    I was so patiently waiting for the post, & you delivered, & it was only when I got to the bottom of the post, that I realised I had the biggest, goofiest, dorkiest grin.

    Way to go. What a day. So full of colour!

    Happy birthday Harper xox

  6. You did such a fantastic job!!

    Happy Birthday to your little sweetie. The cake looked amazing.

  7. Looked like a great day. Just showed my 18 year old your birthday cake. He was very impressed and asked if he could have one like that on his next birthday (he will 19 years old). Everyone like they enjoyed themselves.

  8. oh wow is all i can type…i want to eat that cake and everything looks wonderful! so pretty! u must be shattered…but so worth it & love that you r only two bathrooms off getting the house back to its regular state! dayle

  10. Hip, hip, hooray!

    I’ve been waiting to see these images for what seems like forever and I’m beyond impressed with all that you did to make this a truly special day.

    After my dodgy attempt at an alternative rainbow cake last week, you know that I’m bowing down at the temple of Bev in awe and wonder.

  21. Beth! You outdid yourself!! Not one to shy away from a little colour ๐Ÿ™‚ Harper looks so grown UP and beautiful…and your hair is amazable. And go you for doing so many tissue paper pom-poms! We did them for Scout’s party but I ran out of steam after about 9.

  24. Yum!
    I love the pop of the colours.
    We are totally doing a rainbow cake for Bluey’s birthday next year, but I think that pictures won’t be needed as it will totally be done by everyone come June. Lol.

I’m totally talking one of my girlies into a rainbow party next year just so I can make that cake too ๐Ÿ™‚ Beautiful job, Beth. I know how much prep work goes into a party like that, so to hear you almost have your house cleaned & back to normal is extremely impressive….go you!

  44. I just love how the most simple of decorations can be used to show rainbow and colour! The balloons are a real classic decoration that pack a big impact. And the super-tiered cake is the icing on the cake (so to speak)!
