So, I was off the blogging cause I “made” Nelles’ birthday party! This was my 12th kids birthday party I have thrown. Well, I would say I never learn! Still doing it by myself, still cooking, baking cakes, making decorations, cleaning, planting flowers, etc… even when I don’t have much time left. This is called love, I guess… I hope so… cause people here come and call me crazy :).
47 people invited. Nelle was happy to know that her godmother Viola will came all the way from Germany to greet her.
For the party, I made Latvian traditional party food like rosols, crab stick salad and herring under a fur coat’. I spend half the day thinking how to make one big cake and then brother asked me: “Why do you need one big!? Just make two regular!”. Thank you brother, you know I did! I made two cakes, but instead of making two the same I made two different, one was honey cake and the other Karaliene (Queens’ Cake). This was my first time making Karaliene, but since I love store bought I decide to try. It was good, except for cream part, I would double it next time! 🙂 Honey cake – good as always!
Not all made it to the party 🙂 but for Nelle it was important to have Viola and Ome Mārīte. And they were there 🙂
We had few games to play but the most fun was “faces”. They had to choose the number from 1-10 and then show the face on the plate. That was funny!
I was rushing through the day as a photographer, party planner, game organizer, chef, servant, etc. that ended up with me having a headache. But don’t worry – I won’t learn…
