{Baby Shower} Hey Baby!

We are adding this new Hey Baby! theme to our baby shower offerings. This is more vibrant and bold compared to our more muted Baby Love theme. We have used emerald green as the accent colour for this gender neutral shower but it would work just as well with electric blue or hot pink. 

The black and white stripe with the emerald green was inspired by Kate Spade. It's such a striking colour combination and gives a real sense of occasion. 

The informal flowers worked to make the set up slightly less formal and helped to create a more relaxed atmosphere. 

It's always nice to have a sit down meal where guests can linger around the table and chat while their meal is served to them rather than a buffet where they are up and down throughout the meal. Printed menu's are an added touch that make the luncheon feel more like a celebration. 

We are a big fan of the latest naked cake trend. For this shower we went for something in between a naked cake and a formal cake. We love the final outcome! This red velvet and cream cheese cake was prepared for us by Sylive from Sisslos Cakes (find her FB page here) and we added in one of our custom toppers.

Everyone loves a wee individually packaged treat. Dessert of Salted Caramel Brownies were served in these cute little gold boxes tied with baking stings. The sweet little take home treats were kept simple but still had a striking appeal.

{Party Time} Art Party

It was a real treat styling this party. It really was a blast of colourful fun! We worked to fulfill the clients vision who had requested white base with blasts of colour splashed over it. Turning clients visions into reality is a lot of fun. 

The birthday girl was a delight. She was so excited and enthusiastic about the activities 
and joined in with everything. Activities included a drawing station, cartoon drawer, our popular photo booth and a session of our fun & games. 

The guests got to nibble on movie theater style popcorn and candy floss until dinner was served. 

Take home treats were these delightful candy filled paint pots. A very simple and effective thank you treat for the guests to take away with them.

{Party Time} Olaf!

We have done a lot of Frozen parties but for this one, the client asked for it to be focused more on Olaf than the sisters! It was for three siblings - two sisters and a brother so the focus being on Olaf worked really well. 

The colour pallet for Frozen is fun - blues, whites and silver. It means you can take the decoration in any direction - chic and sophisticated or fun and a bit crazy.  We decided to go with chic and sophisticated for this set up. The blue and sliver was lovely and gave a nice wintery feel. It would be a fun colour pallet to use for a Christmas party. 

Activities included face painting, Olaf puppet making, cookie wand decorating (always very popular), balloon stuffing and our popular photo booth. The photo booth is such a fun activity for the guests and also provides a special gift to take home.

{Party Time} A Simple and Chic Halloween

We wanted to do something a little more sophisticated for Halloween this year so we went for a monochrome look with a touch of purple. We love how it turned out. Aren't these marquee lights fab! 

It was a simple dinner before the children went off Trick or Treating. We were sure to serve food that was going to full them up and not leave too much room for candy ; )

How fab are these popcorn boxes?! We are able to customize EVERYTHING even popcorn boxes.
