Baby Shower Favours

I'm back from a short holiday to Holland.
I just had to be part of the celebrations that was 
going on for the new Dutch King and his lovely Queen!

Straight to work... I had to finish these baby favours 
for a client, they look so pretty! just add some sweets
and they are ready to go. 

Tiny butterflies for that special detail.

Even smaller is this little pram.

Not to forget this little bird-cage..

These bird-cages are about 30 cm high.
Too big for favours... 
They will be used just for decoration.

I made a skirt for my metal mannequin.
I used a bit of silk, tulle and lace to dress her up
and I found a place to display my bird-cages..

The airline I flew with misplaced my and half of 
the other passengers suitcases...
I hope I'll get mine back soon, all my little treasures
I found at auction are in it..

I hope you have a wonderful week.

  4. Dearest Angela,
    Glad you got to be in The Netherlands for the Coronation! We were lucky for being within the Kingdom as well; on the Island of Curaçao for our 10-day vacation with daughter Liz from Rotterdam and her husband Hans. We watched the ceremony on TV life on NOS. At the airport there was quite a celebration too with orange glazed Tompouce; orange cupcakes; poffertjes; bitterballen and orange (oranje) bitter...
    Your baby shower favors are lovely in miniature!
    Hugs to you,

  5. Your favors are beautiful, Angela, as always. I hope you and your luggage are reunited by now. ~Zuni

  6. Angela,
