I started early cause I have this annoying tendency to leave everything till the end and then pressuring myself to make all in a VERY short time period...so for ones in my life, I decided to start early and finish all in time .
I plan on a HUGE bash for her 5th B-Day party and the theme would be Beauty Salon cause this is what best describes my big princess-she is so girly and into beauty and fashion that how could I not to through her a party in this theme :)
I have really big plans for the activities which I hope I'll be able to actually forfill and I already collected a lot of ideas for the desert table too-thanks GOD to Pinterest and the variety in holds :)
and....Since I'm a former cake decorator ,of course there will be a cool girly cake (the design of the cake will remain a secret till after the party -I actually debating a couple of ideas in my head and yet to decide on the one I want to go with ..) BUT i DEF decided on the cake stand style!
I found a really neat stand from AppleTreeDesign called Dilly Dots while browsing the net -it was made of ceramic I think ,and was very fun and wimsy I went through their other stuff and got so inspired that I made up my mind on doing a cake stand of my own .
Making my own pottery is not my cup of tea ,but creating stuff using upcycled materials is so very ME ..... After a quick brain storm I immediately figured I want to use the electriacal spools my hubs brought from work to make my whimsy stand .
The spools are PERFECT for this task as they already as is sort of a cake stands-they have the bottom and upper trays and the middle pole that separates the tires-an awesome candidate which only needs the proper decoration....and that's where I come into the picture -I'm the perfect men for the decoration job
Check out how the magic happens :)
