A Princess Pool Party

                Every Princess needs a princess party!
My little granddaughter London turned 3.
Her mother Audra put on this unbelievable
pool party for the family to celebrate.
I just had to share her tablescape with you.
It is everything beautiful and yummy and

They had a princess theme with cookie crowns.

Can you believe these gorgeous cookies and they
tasted better than they looked!

Everything was set up poolside with this adorable tablecloth.

Cube cupcakes with adorable toppers,

Artfully displayed treats and candies,

Refreshing drinks in a darling pink cooler,

A chicken and grape with poppy seed dressing salad with rolls
and of course
a cute cake.

Audra made everything.  For the cake, she purchased a cake
and then added the frosting clouds for the ponies and
treasure chest to perch on.

Everyone could enjoy the pool before and after dinner
at their condo.

This is one of the poolside cabanas I designed for the cluhouse.

The sparklers scared the birthday girl, just a little!

But she sure loved the cookies.

Dash also had a birthday the same day, but he had celebrated
his a few days earlier, pirate style.

Here's Audra and Tyson and Adele.  What fun to have
married kids and grandkids. 

Everything Audra did for the Princess Pool Party was
exquisite.  She is so talented and we are glad she
wowed us with all of her talent.

I was so impressed, I asked her to come show me  
how to make the cookies, so I could show you.

Today Audra came over and taught me how to make
her fancy sugar cookies.  I will be posting those on
Foodie Fridays


Pink Saturday.

Have a wonderful Tablescape Thursday
Between Naps on the Porch.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  8. Gorgeous pool party! What a lucky little princess to have such a talented Momma! I will definitely be back to see how to do those cookies. I have done lots of cake and cookie decorating but not with the swirl design built in the icing. If it is done like I'm thinking, whew, that takes patience! I love all of this!
