Welcome to my Pink Friday Party... do come in in!
We have lots of cake of the knitted variety... 87 cakes to be exact plus 3 crochet flowers, 2 knitted egg cosies and a beautiful cupcake pendant. I have to admit as more and more cakes arrived I had to shift the goal posts slightly. There will still be a donation for each cake received but not quite as much as I first thought! I have picked three names from the 37 lovely people who have sent me cakes and they will be getting a little thank you gift. I would have loved to send you all something in return but I'm sure you'll understand why that might be a problem. So Vera, Rebecca and Susan D something will be coming your way soon... and everyone else... thank you!
All parties need balloons... especially pink balloons.
And of course I had to make real cake... what else could we have with our cuppa?
... perhaps some chocolate cupcakes too?
and two types of vanilla cupcake?
In fact there is ginger cake, carrot cake, brownies and several other varieties too (not all made by me I hasten to add!)
So... are you coming over for tea?
I thought we could play party games.
And possibly have a raffle too.
Now you are probably thinking I've completely lost my marbles doing all this for a virtual party for my blogging friends on the interweb... and you'd be right!
So I invited some friends over to join in the fun and help me eat all this cake!
So all I need to do now is say thank you... a HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped make this party a success. Thank you to everyone who made cakes, real or knitted, thank you to everyone who donated a raffle prize, thank you to everyone who came and drank tea, ate cake and gave a donation, thank you to my little band of helpers who sold raffle tickets and thank you to Jane and Suzie for making tea all afternoon. We raised £132 which means with my donation plus a donation from my lovely husband who has just promised to match mine we have raised well over £200 for Breast Cancer Care and Cancer Research UK.
Thinking of Linda... and everyone else who has to battle with this awful disease.
