Up until now I've spent my birthdays quietly and without a fuss for years, but this year I wanted something different. It's been a terrible year for me, so I gave myself a permission to pamper myself with a kiddy birthday party ｡◕‿◕｡ I've at least deserved that much! So I invited some of my lolita friends to celebrate my birthday with me! I wanted a princessy theme, so it became rococo inspired. There were 8 of us, because my kitchen couldn't seat more than that, and I was very happy to have so many lovely guests! Everyone was very beautifully dressed, but unfortunately we didn't take a group photo, because nobody remembered it（＞д＜）
I really felt special, I felt happy treating noms to all those friends, having them come all the way out here to spend the day with me, it was something I haven't had in a long, long time, and something I realize I really had wished for a long time. I loved talking with everyone and I think we all had a really good time ♥ ◕ω◕ So thanks again everyone, you made my day! Special thanks to Erica and Saija for taking some of the photos for me!
Candle lit snack time!
It was such nom!
I served selfmade strawberry lemonade made out of the juice I made last summer. It's my favourite ♡
I had decorated the chairs with flowers and ribbons.
After snacking we made paper crowns and decorated them with glitter and flowers.
My crown (◡‿◡✿)
See? I'm enjoying everything else except the wig.
Discussing fine details of making a crown! Very important.
Time for desserts!
The chocolate cake got the honors to try out the glass dome thingy for the first time. It doesn't stash well when there isn't a cake inside.
Also my cute plates were serving rolled flat cake (suomeksi siis käärelättänä). It was supposed to have bird patterns on it, but they didn't turn out so well, people didn't see them as birds! They were guessed to be teapots or even skulls (>人<) But who cares, the cake tasted good!
Observe my new curtains in the background.
I made a lolita cardgame, so we got to try it out for the first time! I was so happy it worked and people liked it! It was so much fun! We ended up calling it the "coordgame", since that's what we were trying to do.
Here's one of my winning coords. Need to make a few "over the top" pieces to make it more exciting.
I received presents too, but I'll make another post about that later, since this one is pretty photo spammed as it is. Sadly I'm still waiting for my dream items to be shipped, I bought them for myself as a birthday present and I'm beginning to be very impatient! But they said they'll ship them as soon as they can, so I'll try to be a good girl and wait a little longer ｡◕‿◕｡
