{calming image of exactly where I want to be from here}

I am so thrilled that Friday is finally here. This week felt plain old long. I’m going to be spending some time this weekend baking a wedding cake (and theoretically enough cake for 220 people, so it might be quite a project!) and moving our newly painted sideboard into the house! It took way longer than expected to make enough room for it, but now I’m going to get it all organised so I can show you next week!

The Sweetest Occasion featured a splish-splashy party, complete with octopus balloons and pretty popsicles. Must add popsicle molds to the bring-from-America list!

These Oreo pops would have made my week so much sweeter. How totally yum.

Now that my sewing machine is fixed (thanks mom-in-law!), I’d love to make this beachy tote if I can scrounge up some fun fabric. Those stripes are cheerful!

A dear friend sent me over to this blog (written by her dear friend, so it’s like I know her!) and I just loved following her photo journey. And for the lovers of Irish tea? Gorgeous. Although we might now incite a Barry’s versus Lyon’s battle. Ha!

This apple braid looks easy to make but would definitely impressive to serve!

Have you seen this edible spray paint? Can you imagine? It makes things look like this! Amazing!

And in case you missed posts on From China Village this week, here’s Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. And a Thursday bonus!

Enjoy your weekends, everyone!

    Have fun baking that cake, Emily — and do take photos when you’re finished so we can all see!

    Hey there Emily – Thanks for posting a link to my blog and for the lovely comments! I should let you know that I’ve since become a huge fan of Barry’s Tea! 🙂
