Although Coralie’s birthday was well over a month away, a small group of us got off the rock for a lovely day sail to Copper Island Beach Club, celebrating her upcoming 4th. She has been lucky enough to spend all her birthdays with extended family in France, but as her Mama, I wanted her to have a chance for a more child orienated celebration with her BVI friends. The theme was a mix of homage to the ‘Olivia the Pig’ books, along with a nautical twist.
For the invite, I sent out a copy of this page from the French version of ‘Olivia Saves the Circus’, which shows Olivia sailing with her Papa.
Some pig ears to go along with a second hand tutu, and new bathing suit.
I had these boat shaped woodshop scraps forever, finally finished for parting gifts.

Along the with boats, the guests also got a copy of ‘Coralie’s Bath Time Favorites’, which she can sing in it’s entirety!

The Nutella Layered cake just barely managed to uphold the tropical summer heat.
But the cake topper itself was burned when the chef enthusiastically lighted the candles with a creme brulee touch, resulting in a great suvenir of the day.
