Father's Day

I'm a few days behind in posting these pictures, but we were having so much fun celebrating this special day with my husband that I really don't mind. Our celebrations spilled into Monday too, where we went to a resort and spent the day in the pool and trying not to catch too many of those sun's rays! In Florida it's pretty much unavoidable. 

This year we celebrated Daddy with a golf theme, which actually worked out well since it was the US Open and we were able to watch it drinking lots of Tee! heehee

I love setting the table for tea and bringing out the table cloth and cloth serviettes. This year instead of store bought cards we made shirt and tie cards. The children loved picking out their own tie designs and shirt colours.

Pumpkin Pound Cake and Cupcakes
My husband can't eat too much sugar so I made this cake with 1/3 cup of Agave syrup and 1oz of raw sugar instead of 3 cups of sugar which is what the recipe called for. The icing on the top I substituted for whipped cream with a 2tsp of pumpkin spice, which I also put on the cupcakes. The cupcake toppers were made from sugar paste (I haven't worked out how to make sugar-free sugar paste yet! haha) The children used edible food colourings markers to draw fun pictures on and I couldn't resist in  having a go myself. They turned out so good and it was wonderful to see my husband actually eat a cupcake, minus the topper!

Pumpkin Pound Cake with Tea
We really enjoyed our day celebrating the special man in our lives and he truly enjoyed all his goodies. 

Happy Father's Day to all those hard working men who give up so much for their children
