Sneek Peek : Claire's 1st Birthday

It is still a couple of months away, but things are coming along nicely for Claire's 1st birthday celebration. As mentioned in this post, it will be a pink, white and mauve affair, with lots of ruffles! I have chosen her cake:

How could I go past the famous Martha Stewart Ruffle Tower Cake! I just hope I can do it justice. Once the cake was decided on the next thing was what to put on the top? I thought about making something out of modelling paste, but it just didn't seem right, so I checked out Etsy and Madeit to see what I could find. A clothespin doll topper was my choice.

I was lucky enough to come across a talented lady on Madeit, Sarah of Enchanted Belles, who managed to create exactly what I visioned. As I have purchased Claire's birthday outfit, Sarah made the dollie topper an outfit to match.

What do you think? Isn't she gorgeous! I think she will be the perfect finishing touch to the cake. Be sure to check out Sarah's blog, Enchanted Belles, and see the gorgeous wedding cake toppers, dollies and personalised door plaques.

Thankyou Sarah for creating this for Claire :)

Oh and another thing, I have reached 20 followers, HOORAY, thankyou all for supporting my little blog, I really appreciate it.

Enjoy your weekend.

Mrs KT :)
