a brilliant book launch indeed

Greetings all,
Today i sponsored the book launch of Riley and The Curious Koala & boy was i extremely proud to be part of this amazing event. 
 Liz from pARTy cakes made this amazing ensemble of iced perfection, the moist chocolate cake was delightful & i was enjoying myself nicely until my eldest daughter ran to my husband & said "Dad Dad Dad, OMG, Mum is eating cake on her diet".  FYI she's a Daddy's girl & is off to see Harry Potter with him this afternoon, good riddance.
 Tania put on craft entertainment for the children, at the closed cafe next to Dalton's Books, before a book reading.  Look at my crafty girls helping each other out. 
Even miss about-to-start-high-school got into the fun!! 
 The last thing Tania emailed me last night said "i don't do things half-arsed" & boy is that true - even the lamington wombats had little feet underneath.  Hello, meringue Sydney Opera Houses anyone??  Remember she's an author & mum, not a professional dessert bar or event organiser!!  Her children's parties are equally incredible & amazing (& exhuasting!!) 
 Euc juice, squeezed from the leaves of gum trees!!
 Check out those baby blue eyes of my middle girl.
 The cake top deserves a close up for Riley's adventures around Sydney.
Tania in full flight, she puts in 150% in her animated readings & they're so much fun!!  We even won a door prize from the National Library, pretty thrilled with that.
For you chance to win a copy of this book, check out 2 blog posts back & leave a comment there.  Good luck & have a lovely week, love Posie

You awesome girl!!!!!!!!!!!! And, dear readers, Jennie also most generously sponsored this fun launch with her gorgeous Riley buttons and not only that, she turned up with cookie for the kids to nibble PRE-candy bar AND a new release DVD for my kids to watch while I collapse on the couch this afternoon!

Jennie - you are incredible. Generous, thoughtful and just plain FUN. I'm lucky to have you in my clutches.

PS: I'll be posting a really comprehensive article on the book launch party on my blog this afternoon! http://taniamccartney.blogspot.com/

Thanks Tania, the cookies were an easy way to save the candy bar & fancy cakes from our 6 collective children before the event started!! The DVD was just forward planning so you could collapse & have the children engrossed in a movie, silence, ahhhh. Love Posie

Thanks for popping by earlier Posie, it's been a treat this arvo to see both your georgeous pictures of the amazing Riley cake and Elodie's christening cake at Retromummy's place. There are some talented cake makers around for sure! (I can't blame you for breaking that diet!)
