The inspiration for Lukas’s 3rd birthday was literally flying over my head for months. We always love watching the changing sky in the evening, when the fluffy clouds start turning purple at the sunset. And there is not a nice sunny day without some hot air balloons flying above our heads in our city. You can see at least three on regular bases. So we had a nice family celebration between clouds and hot air balloons.
The decorations were handmade. I made the cloud garland with the thought of using it in Lukas’s room afterwards. So no waste after this party. Every hot air balloon had cutout photos of some family member in the basket. This was such a personal surprise and everyone really loved peeking in. We had to include Lukas’s favorite food sushi and popcorn, that actually sort of look like clouds. The cloud coconut cookies were fun to make and I shared the recipe in the previous post.
Using my favorite coconut cookie recipe I made these cloud cookies for a birthday party we had couple of weeks ago. More photos to come.
100 g sugar + 150 g butter — mix together
1 1/3 cups of shredded coconut + 2 eggs + 1 1/3 cups of all purpose flour — mix together
Combine all together and make small balls, put next to each other to create a cloud. Bake at 180C for about 10 min. Super easy and quick … and yummy.
There are some hot air balloons flying around almost every nice day.
Erika, these are for you! : )

hot and cold,
figs in October,
and strawberries too, on southern slopes
magic happens, walnut-pumpkin pie,
just come and sit

What an amazing fall we are having so far! Good to be here.
More low shadows. Thank you sun for being so generous to us this fall. Soon, it will be hard to come home from work early enought see the shadow play on the walls.
When the shadows are long and the winds are strong … fall is definitely my favorite season.
