I sort of took the easy option for the girls birthday party this year. Summer was so crazy with SO much work and general busy-ness that I just didn't feel I had the time to make a big cake or go all out on party bags, so as the party was gym themed. I bought these party bag skipping ropes.
Then I made chocolate bar covers to say thank you and gave them out in white paper bags with sweets and cake.
The cake was my biggest cheat. I bought a beautiful plain iced chocolate cake from Waitrose and just added the decorations. The Playmobil gymnast is the javelin thrower and the bars are from our school set.
I made the bunting from straws and patterned card.
I thought it came out quite well.
What do you think?
