Bon Voyage!

Two of my close girlfriends are about to head off overseas! One is taking her first international holiday and heading round the words for a few weeks, the other friend is moving to Manchester for at least 12 months - lucky ducks!
On the weekend just gone a handful of our friends got together over a casual lunch to say Bon Voyage and wish them well. So I thought it would be a bit of fun to take along some yummy travel themed sweets.

I made some airplane and globe shaped cookies and also made a few cupcakes that I placed in wrappers I made from old atlas pages and poked in some cupcake toppers I made using THESE printable traveler's party circles. For a bit of extra fun I used my little girls mini suitcase to serve them in - very cute!
I had also spotted a little while ago some gorgeous sewn paper cards made with old atlas pages by Moonmum so grabbed one to write a little farewell note to each of the travelers.

Mini Suitcase in green from Little Styles
Airplane and round/globe cookie cutters from Little Betsy Baker

It all went together so well and was a great talking point at the end of our meal.
