So Celestine's birthday went by much more celebrated than I had anticipated! My friend Henrietta suggested that we do a miniature teaparty on Sunday afternoon and I was like YES! It was just like old times when we used to make tiny weeny sandwiches and pizza and cake for our mascots when we were little. Except this time, being older and all, we were able to make the food look much more professional. Also this time we had a camera to photograph it all! Henrietta brought along Matilda the mouse and together Matilda and Celestine had a birthday teaparty. It started out rather sedate and they stuck their little fingers out as they drank from their tumblers (do mice have fingers?) but it all began to go downhill when Matilda opened the whiskey... (it really was real whiskey!) Being so small Celestine and Matilda are complete lightweights! (Celestine had to spend the following day nursing a hangover in bed)
Here's what we made ^^ A chocolate cake with mini smarties on the top, chocolate cupcakes/mini cakes with white chocolate stars on the top, mini pizza (we happened to have some leftover dough in the fridge and tomato puree and mozzarella) mini marmalade sandwiches- like Paddington Bear! And mini marshmallows dipped in chocolate.
Here comes the whiskey! ^^ (also note the tiny birthday card Celestine received from my friend Sian)
As you can see things ended in quite a mess ^^ Matilda found her nose in the chocolate cakes. They both enjoyed themselves immensely though. Which is the important thing!
