Bakery Themed Party by Something Wonderful Happened

Lucia from Something Wonderful Happened styled this gorgeous Bakery themed birthday party as told by Lucia

"Aila starts looking through cookbooks to find inspiration for her next
birthday cake about six months out from her birthday.  So a bakery theme was
just perfect for involving her in the excitement of preparations for her 4th
birthday party!

With two boys numbering amongst the many female guests, we wanted a colour
palette that was feminine but that still had some colours that little boys
could relate to. Aqua, yellow and pale pink fit the brief and provided a
bright, fun environment for all that baking.

To create a sense of anticipation for the party, guests received an
invitation wrapped around a mini rolling pin. Interstate guests received an
invitation tied with bakers twine and a mini whisk in the mail. On arrival,
Aila’s young guests were gifted with beautiful aprons and chef’s hats
custom-made by Cora Kids. They then used custom made ‘recipe books’ to
guide them in decorating cupcakes. Mini rolling pins, painted in aqua and
yellow, were used as place settings and cookies in the shape of oven mitts
made for a sweet detail.

Guests took home their decorated cupcakes, a rolling pin, their hat and
apron, a customised water bottle and an oven mitt cookie in a sweet calico
favour bag. And Aila’s mum has made her promise to wait at least four
months before getting out the cook books to start planning her 5th birthday
