Cherry Birthday Party

• 23 August 2010


























































































































































Update: Cherry Lollies from Europe now available in the shop!

I had more fun planning this "half" birthday party for my youngest daughter, than just about any other party I've spun for my little ones. The truth is, I've been planning it for over a year--ever since I spotted those adorable cherry lollipops at Mamie Gateaux. But when my daughter's birthday arrived earlier this year, I was super sick with HG, so the whole day ended up being a bust and any thought of a party went on hold. Fast forward 6 months and we find ourselves in the midst of cherry season. Well, how about that? I decided to put to use these cute party supplies and throw a "half" birthday party for my little redhead instead. She had such a good time being a part of it all and now I finally feel satisfied. With a new baby coming, she really deserved a day being just about her--every little person does!

  5. Absolutely charming but I have to ask ... did those two sided cherry lollipops get sticky pretty quickly or did the guests eat them before that happened?

  11. Thank you for all the sweet comments!

    Angela, the lollipops worked out just fine...I didn't notice any stickiness until of course the kids started eating them. But straight out of the package they are not sticky, which is why I could use them so many ways!

  24. As a Northwest cherry grower I may be biased, but looking at the pictures I'm disappointed we can't all attend! What a well-planned, thoughtful party. Very original. I love to see the Rainier cherries too. They're a lot harder to grow, so the few that make it to market are extra special...perfect for a celebration!
