Lila's Christening Day-Pretty bird Cages

Lila was christened in July last year when she was 6 months old. I actually cant believe to look at her now that she was only a baby last year. Where does the time go!!??

I was so excited to finally have a little girl and be able to plan really girly,  pretty parties! After much searching, I finally found the perfect invitation for her special day at paper posy and from there; the bird cage theme was set.

Normally I like to do my own invitations but because I had Marley’s christening invite professionally designed, I wanted to do the same with Lila’s.

I wanted to do something a little different with this cake and use buttercream to decorate for the texture. It didn't  turn out as nicely as I would of hoped but it was still cute. To quote my husband 'Its not  your best work is it?' Men!
