Mr Ladybird's 30th Birthday Party!

So as many of you will know, Mr Ladybird turned 30 last week. We hosted a party on Saturday to celebrate with our family and friends. It was so much fun, the hubby had such a great time - thank you to overyone who came along... it was so nice seeing you all!

For Mr Ladybird's birthday, I decided to get him a Liverpool cake - he is such a diehard Liverpool fan so I thought it would be great to have a liverpool themed cake! The magnificent cake was created by Sharon of Sharon Wee Creations. Her attention to detail is so impressive. It was a lovely moist vanilla cake, with a layer of white chocolate ganache in between. I cannot sing Sharon's praises highly enough - she is one talented li'l lady! To read about the cake from her perspective, click here.

Due to popular demand, here are the names of some of our other 'suppliers' for the night!

Our balloons and party supplies, including disposbale champagne glasses were from Sydney Party Shop at 485 Forest Rd, Bexley NSW. We used a DIY helium balloon kit - it was good value and easy to use. PLUS- karaoke on helium is a lot of fun ;)

The Jukebox & Karaoke machine was from Jukebox Hire. It was so much fun and really helped make the night a success - guests had a lot of fun choosing songs and giving karaoke a go :)

The cheese & spinach and the pea puffs were from The Original Maltese Cafe at 310 Crown St, Surry Hills. These delicious flaky pastries will melt in your mouth, and they are FAR superior to the cheese and spinach pastries you get in the supermarket, not to mention the fact that they are such good value!

Umm no I didn't make the dips, sorry :( I would have loved to have made them myself, but I simply had no time! The dips were from Yalla Dips on Anzac Parade, Maroubra. This is where the factory is located, but you can still but the dips there. You can them at DJs, as well as quite a few supermarkets and delis. My favourite was the Hummus.. so tasty with warm turkish bread!
