Rescue the Birthday...

On actual birthday I started feeling rather ill and ended up abandoning all cake eating efforts to instead bond with my pillow!  This meant that there was also no energy for I heart Market on Saturday...I was sad to not set up shop, but needed to rest!  In an attempt to rescue the dismal birthday situation I did manage to muster up enough energy to celebrate on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning.

On Saturday I had a DIY celebration and each friend decorated a notebook while gobbling coral coloured macaroons from Daniela's.

On Sunday morning I celebrated with another bunch of friends and had a breakfast bar...yogurt, mini cereal boxes and Milo.  I also prepped fruit, nuts and flake to make the yogurt even more interesting.

The initial idea for a breakfast came via Cakies...check out their birthday breakfast complete with pancakes.

I am been a keen follower of The Confetti System and tried my hand at making some of their tasseled decorations.  It was fun, but my attempt isn't half as wonderful as their installation pieces.  I had so much fun preparing everything...I feel like doing it all again...ha ha!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

For the paper tassels I used crepe paper and washi tape.
The cute striped bowls and straws are from In Good Company.

Thank you Amelia from Whimsy who snapped these photos!
