Christmas 2011!

Happy New Year to you all, I can't believe it is already 11 days into the new year! I was hoping 2012 was going to go by a little slower.

We hosted Christmas lunch for 12 at our place this year, it was a wonderful celebration, with lot's of yummy food, laughs and enjoyment watching the children open presents and share the joy of Christmas with their cousins.

As there were only 12 of us (6 of these being children) I put together a small lolly and dessert table. Our colour theme this year was red and turquoise.

The table consisted of the Christmas Tree Cake (3 layers of cherry ripe mudcake), inspired by Bubble and Sweet, blue and red jelly pots, pannacotta pots, christmas tree sugar cookies, lindt chocolates, baci chocolates, tree lollypops and assorted lollies - jaffas, raspberry bon bons, blue clouds, red licorice and red frogs.

The children love being able to help themselves to all of the treats, and making the individual jelly and pannacotta pots is an easy way to control portion size, as the pots are just enough for little mouths and tummies!

Vendor information:
Wooden teaspoons and bon bons by Sweet Style.
Tree candy jar and lollypops by Sharnel Dollar Designs.
Glass pots and ribbon cake stand by Tracey Lau Art and Soul.

Our children received lots of fabulous presents including a new 14ft trampoline. Oliver received an iPod among other things, Claire received a gorgeous fabric tee-pee among other things and Lachlan received a baby Bearded Dragon among other things.

Here is Max, the newest addition to the family. He is a very cute little lizard.

I was very excited to wake up this morning and see Claire's 2nd Birthday featured on Eat Drink Pretty Blog. It is a wonderful party blog and a great honour to have another party featured. Please head over and have a look.

Enjoy the rest of the week :)
