Sophie's 9th Birthday!

We celebrated Sophie's 9th birthday at "As You Wish" pottery painting. It was perfect for her, our little crafter!

We had a whole painter/artist theme, from the invites (shaped as pallets with circle punched colors for the paints), to the cake from Hollie's Hot Cakes :

It slid in the box on transport, sorry Hollie! The pictures do not quite do it justice. It was also delicious. The birthday girl wanted vanilla with strawberry filling. Hollie makes her cakes FROM SCRATCH! One of our party guests said "that was the best cake I have ever had in my whole life". Pretty good review from an 8 year old!
Our goodies for the guests were paint tins with a set of paints and some "paint splattered" (sprinkles) Funfetti cake pops:
Each child got to choose a piece along with colored glazes. It was a good age for this type of party, they all had a good attention span for it.
Especially the birthday girl:
 What attention to detail!

After painting we did cake and ice cream then presents!

 We get to pick up all their fired pieces on Tuesday, can't wait to see them. Happy Birthday Sophie!

The cake is adorable! I love it!

Loving the party favors!

It looks like everyone had a good time! You will have to show Sophie's master piece when you get it! What she had looked pretty impressive!

I wish I had been invited to the party...ha! I love cake pops and love painting pottery. Maybe we should do that for a girls night out outing sometime?

The painters cake is so cute! I saw that on Hollie's FB page, but didn't realize it was for Sophie :)
