I can’t remember if I said but I had been planning my birthday this year around the theme of Marie Antoinette. Like most of my parties of late, the venue was my garage – it can be turned into almost anything! My birthday was very recently, and my friends and I got our hair done on the day for a bit of fun. And then there was the cake of course! As per tradition, my Mum made my birthday cake for me. I didn’t want a Marie Antoinette themed cake however; I really wanted a Mexican style tres leches cake! My Mum made me two beautiful cakes to sit on the table for the party. We decorated the garage with balloons, candles and bunting…there was a lovely clash of Mexico and Antoinette going on!
My Marie Antoinette inspired hair:
The delicious cakes my Mum made for me! A Mexican tres leches and a chocolate raspberry cake.
The Bar – “Boom Booms” are a type of shot from Mexico that I absolutely love!
The nickname I acquired in Mexico this summer has stuck!
Rebecca trying her first Boom Boom! You need a tall shot glass, filled 3/4 with tequila, topped with a fizzy lemonade. Cover the top of the glass with a thick napkin and bang it twice really hard on the bar (Boom Boom!) before downing VERY quickly!
My group of friends from home – we are called the “Wooden Spoons”!
It was such a good party! Have you ever had a Marie Antoinette inspired party?
