On the 3rd of April 2016 I celebrated my 16th birthday with a Lolita Tea Party at Cafe "Besonders Bunt" in Bochum.
Since I had told my boyfriend how much I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my lovely Lolita friends months ahead, he secretly started planning quite early. He made a facebook conversation group to discuss things like who should be invited, what food should be served, where the party should be held and so on. I was so suprised and happy when I found out there was something planned. :)
Since I wanted to give everyone who came a little present, I figured out to bake sugar cookies shaped like Korilakkuma and Hello Kitty.
Everything went really well and the cookies tasted amazing, until I realised:
Eggs and Butter aren't exactly vegan, right?
I didn't really know what to do, since I don't want anyone to be sad or feel excluded, just
because they chose to eat in a way that doesn't harm animals.
I'm definitly not vegan myself, but I really admire those who are able live like that.
My boyfriend and I quickly went to the supermarket, to get some ingredients for
I think my first attempt of vegan baking went quite well :)
You can see them in the picture on the right, there are a little bit dry, so I filled them with delicious peanut butter.
There wasn't a lot to prepare, since all the food, decorations and so on were made by Cafe Besonders Bunt! My boyfriend and I decided to listen to some audiobooks until 1 pm, so I could calm down a bit.
After that I got dressed. This day I decided to wear Ceceilia Cross, which I got for my birthday.
I was so nervous, since that dress was stuck in customs for quite a while and I was worried it wouldn't arrive in time, because I really wanted to wear it to my birthday.
I combined it with this cute blouse, white tights (as always), my favourite pink shoes from An Tai Na,
AP wristcuffs and the Ceceilia Cross headbow.
Do you like my outfit? :)
My boyfriend also decided to dress up for this special occasion.
He had ordered an elegant Gothic Outfit from Dracula Clothing, which is located in Europe btw, so no customs!
I really liked his outfit, it looks so vampire-esque (, but the top-hat makes him look like a wizard x) ).
He's the perfect Ouji Accesory! :P
I got two big cakes, one was lemon flavoured and shaped like a cross, the other one was chocolate flavored and shaped like a crescent moon, as well as a few vegan cupcakes.
Then my guests arrived, I was almost shocked by how pretty everyone looked!Sadly two of my friends were ill, I hope you guys get well soon :(
Finally, after I hugged all of my guests, gave everyone their gift bags and chatted a bit, we sat down.
After some chatting, they decided I should open my present before we would start eating cake.
I was quite shocked when I saw the huge package on the table next to my friends.
It turned out they had thrown their money together to buy my one big present :)
I was so excited to open it.. it turned out to be a fluffy coat by Babyssb!
The coat was so soft and had such a nice color. I was so suprised, because I didn't expect something
like this! I almost cried..
My friend Dorothea also got my some really nice roses, they look so adorable!
Thank you so much, my friends :)
After opening up my amazing present, we finally had some cake!
I also ordered some delicious hot chocolate with whipped cream on top, because I can't
get enough chocolate x3
Sadly I have a really small stomach, so I couldn't even finish my first piece of birthday cake.
I only got to try two or three bites of the chocolate cake, which is such a shame.
Luckily I was able to take some of the cake home, so I can enjoy it while I'm writing this blog post :p
When everyone had finished their cake, I ask some of my guests if they wanted to take outfit pictures.
We went outside in small groups to take pictures at the giant cupcake in front of the cafe :)
Simone (Ravenhearts Elegy) in her lovely sea themed dress. Her pony bag is to die for!
She looks so pretty :)
Melanie in Bodylines Antique Clock. She even had the matching bag and her mini hat is very cute ^^
Kati and Mareike twinning Sugar Pansy. Their outfits matched so well. I love the color combination!
Leo (Fairytale Prince) made his headdress especially for this occasion :)
He looks so handsome!
Hina, owner of Cute Lolliland. She rocks OTT Sweet Lolita.
A lot of her accesoires are handmade!
Natalie, wearing another sea themed outfit. I lover her lobster jewelry. So cute x3
Elizabeth wore this super cute dress from Krad Lanrete. I'm so in love with her simple Coords.
Laura in her absolutley stunning Milky-chan dress. Her handmade blouse looks so awesome!
When everyone had their pictures taken, we went inside again to chat some more and drink more
delicious tea and hot chocolate.
Some of us decided to have dinner at Mongos that evening, which is a nice Mongolian restaurant.
I really enjoyed the food, but I didn't take any pictures :)
When I got home I looked at my lovely coat for a while, looked through some of the pictures I had taken and prepepared for school. It had been such a great day and I'm so thankful and feel so
honoured, since I've gotten such a nice present and so many guests came!
A big thank you to everyone :)
