Happy 80th Birthday - Cards, Cake, Family and Friends

It was Dad's 80th birthday on 1st October and we celebrated at my Sister's house with a tea party for family and friends on 5th.

I made Dad a card using the Cricut, and the Birthday Bash Cartridge. This was my design team card for Scrapology for this month's challenge. The papers are from Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection, which was perfect for the Autumnal colour theme chosen by team member Sheena.

With the help of Catherine I did a lot of baking and cake decorating in the days leading up to the party. I made a big three tier cake, one layer vanilla, the second chocolate and the third was chocolate chip. All decorated with fondant icing.

Then we decorated cup cakes, 36 for the party, another 12 lactose free so Emily could have some and another 12 for Catherine to take to a party she was going to later in the weekend!

We decorated many of them with the same fondant we had made for the big cake. Others were piped with orange and lemon flavoured butter cream.

These all made it safely to my sisters house in the car!
Sylvia had prepared all the other food and Bob had put up the Marquee.
People travelled from far and wide to be with Dad to celebrate his special birthday.

 Happy Birthday Dad.
Thanks for looking.
