Cake, food, friends and fun!!! Even the dog got into the fun. I will be posting pictures to this post over the next few days-I took over 900 pics so there is a bit of time to process as you can imagine-and I seem to have lost my skills sooooooooooooooo some of the pics are not so clear.
I found a picture of the cake I wanted and had a local bakery http://sarasotacakes.manateepc.com/ here make it for us. The Characters are from an Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/79023341/ni-hao-kai-lan-inspired-fondant-cake and they made it here all the way from California without a glitch. Mia's outfit also came from an Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/59246202/custom-boutique-girl-clothing-red?ref=af_you_favitem. I can't say enough great things about these 2 shops, as you can see her outfit is beautiful and the Kai Lan characters are just perfect!
Oh, there is a bunch of stuff that I made (found on Pinterest of course) Rice Crispy Sushi, Cho dipped Marshmallows, Pinata (2), crowns, Embroidered the table cloths, Custom M&M's with Mia's pictures all them as well as the invitation that took me weeks to decide on just how I was going to make it. I am glad to see this party has come and gone, it is exhausting to try and make /do everything I see- AND I started planning this party over 6 months ago!
