a few months ago my sister-in-law and i decided to start a small tradition: to throw a party celebrating 3 cousins. it's amazing how close the bond between cousins can be isn't it? our little guy has 2 cousins, and they are 7 and 13 years apart respectively, but still there is such a strong connection. so on saturday, we had a small and simple but colourful party full of family, fun and presents for the 3 cousins.
the only decoration i put up was a banner i had made last week and which i plan to use for similar occasions in the future and a table cloth made from super-colourful ikea fabric i had in my stash for ages. i also made gift bags from leftover fabric.
the skewered fruit and the lemon water were hits! the cake i made didn't turn out that great (although i loved the decorating part!!). if anybody has a foolproof recipe for a simple and if possible more spicey than sweet cake to share, please do so in the comments!
