{Party Time} On Safari

A safari is such a fun theme for both boys and girls. This party was for the delightful 2 year old Olivia and was hosted at the beautiful Katara Arts Center. We went for a natural colour scheme with a few burst of orange and a touch of yellow to add a playful touch.

Our hats were a hit with the children. They always make a birthday party feel like a birthday party! We customised them with animals to match the theme. We also customised popcorn boxes for each place setting! 

The food stations were our cute wooden stands wrapped in vines and surrounded by trees and grasses. The custom animal cake toppers and flowers gave the cake a whimsical feel and tied it all into the surroundings. 

The fabulous Jenna did the Tunes 4 Tots activity that all the kids love! It is a great way to keep them engaged and entertained and perfect for this age group. 

These simple party bags were a perfect match to the theme and a sweet little gift for the children to take home.

{Party Time} Activity Filled M&M Party!

We loved doing this fabulous colour filled M&M themed party! We always enjoy doing bright colorful events in stunning settings. This party was packed with fun activities to keep guests of all ages entertained.  

The set up was fun and fill of bright colours to match the party colours of M&Ms. We added all the extra touches to personalise it. 

The details are what make the difference in a set up as you can see from the close up details of the drinks station. We love the daisy lid mason jars. And how cool are those juice signs! 

The right activities are what make a party great. There was a great mix of activities including paint a truck, cookie decorating, cupcake decorating, photo booth, play dough, face painting, balloon stuffing, soft play area, mini bouncy castles for the toddlers and even a cartoon artist to draw pictures of all the guests!

{New & Exciting} Bonjour Chiara Collabration

So many exciting things happening here at Chocolate Fish! We are really honored to announce an ongoing collaboration with Bonjour Chiara who is launching her exclusive Mrs B Events. Chiara is a high-profile fashion and life style blogger in Qatar. She is now launching her own events! We will be helping her with the event planning and styling. 

To launch Mrs B Events, we worked together on a National Day celebration. It was a loads of fun and we had a lot of support from Karen Millen, Brothers & Sisters, Wojooh Beauty AppleSnaps and the Katara Arts Centre. 

We went with a Henna inspired look in the Qatar national colours of maroon and white. It looked fabulous in the all white studio at the Katara Arts Centre. There was a lovely selection of Arabic goodies to snack on.

Events are always more fun when there are interactive activities to participate in. Sticking with the henna theme we had a henna workshop where guests got a chance to learn the basics of henna. The talented girls from Wojooh give everyone a change to perfect their eye makeup and of course there was one of our fun photo booths.

Also on display and to try out were the lovely turbans from Brothers and Sisters. Chiara matched the turbans with stylish outfits from Karen Millen and gave attendees some ideas on how to style a turban. 

All guests got these wonderful goodie bags from Mrs B. Chocolate Fish produced the bags for Mrs B from one of her signature drawings. Wojooh filled them up with goodies!

{Things We Love} Winter Love

This is our second Things We Love blog post. It's a post where we focus on things we love and things that are inspiring us from around the net and out in the wider world! 

We are feeling inspired by flowers which is kind of odd since it is winter. But those of you based in the Middle East know that flowers last a lot longer here in winter than they do in summer. It can often be hard to incorporate flowers into events in Qatar due to both the cost and availability. Sometimes it is a matter of working backwards - looking at what is currently available at a reasonable price and then working them into an event. How cute are those floral party hats! 

We are officially in love with Loryn Loves! She is based in Melbourne and has the most amazing cakes and desert platters. She has her own blog - or you can find her on instagram and facebook

We love a bit of Christmas cheer here at Chocolate Fish. Our favourite Christmas App is PNP - Portable North Pole. You can get custom videos and even custom phone calls from Santa. The kids love it and it is super easy to use from your phone or ipad! Find it here.  

And lastly some thing to inspire you! Here is a picture of our free Christmas printables in use. They are aimed to inspire you and to make it easy to give your Christmas party a bit of extra pizzazz. Click here for the downloadable files.
