D.I.Y floral cake topper (come flower crown)

Sunday, 14 September 2014

We had a little party in our back yard yesterday for a certain little one-year-old. Just family and a couple of close friends and their kids kept things really low-key and enjoyable.

We (and by 'we', I really mean Paddy-under-my-creative-direction ;) lovingly made a little rustic vanilla cake with buttercream frosting and adorned it with a little wreath that we quickly fashioned from a $5 bunch of wax flower. What I hadn't intended at the time was for it to double as a little flower crown afterwards. Love when genius ideas happen by accident!


  1. Happy 1st Birthday sweet Marguerite. Simply beautiful cake and crown too x

  2. Happy birthday, sweet little one. What a lever mama and daddy you have! Beautiful pictures Claire. I can't believe she's one already!! X

  3. Happy birthday, sweet sweet girl! So sad I missed you in Australia, but hope you will come to Nashville soon!!!
