Moodboard Monday

This week’s moodboard is full of inspiration for a beautiful baby shower.  We’ve just finished the printable kit for this special mom-to-be and just love the different yellows and greys combo.  Her friend who arranged the shower asked for a vintage-inspired feel, with birds, cages and a pram in the design. We’ll post our designs soon, but in the meantime enjoy these gorgeous pics…and have a happy Monday!

Wine Glass People

Earlier (make that much earlier) this year, we celebrated a milestone birthday of the matriarch of our family, our Gaga who turned 80!  She is so special to us, and her birthday tea was full of love, laughter and lots of pink!

We thought we’d share these “wine glass people” that we made as a place name for each person.  We were inspired by these tea bag Royals made as souvenirs for the Royal wedding.  They’re a fun and personal way to mark each person’s place. Really cute, don’t you think?

And here we are!

Bake + Make Invitations

You’re invited to a Bake and Make party!  We delivered a stack of these cute personalised invites yesterday.  What a lovely theme to work with, we so enjoyed whipping these up.  We love the idea of a baking and craft party for young girls and we chose cupcake colours with a fresh and funky pattern to set the tone. The birthday girl was so happy with these, and that’s all we need to make us smile!

Milla’s Rainbow Party

Hip hip hooray, it’s Milla’s rainbow day! We had such a lovely 2nd birthday celebration for our precious girl, best of all was the joy on her face as she enjoyed her party.  Here are a few pics of the bright and happy day!

And by the way, the printable invitation and full printable party kit are now available to buy on our Etsy store.

Ballerina 3rd Birthday

A few weeks back we posted the invitation and favors for this Ballerina 3rd birthday.  Thanks to our friend Brightgirl Photography (who is also this gorgeous ballerina’s mom) we now have some stunning pics from the party to share with you.

We loved creating such a girlie party, from the tulle table skirt and elegant table setting to the cute ballerina seating cards.  We designed place mats for each guest, with a little ballerina and wardrobe to color-in, cut out and play dress up!  The photo booth was a cut out of the same adorable legs as the invitations, which the little ones could stand behind and strike a fun pose.  Guests were welcomed at a mirror with tutu and ballet shoes, and invited to take a headband or bowtie to go with the ballet outfits they arrived in.  Rebecca’s mom and dad made all the delicious treats and the amazing cupcake cake.  We served popcorn in delicate cones, and created a sweetie bar filled with pink delights.  Don’t you love the milk ‘shooters’ with straws and biscuits!

This kit will be available to buy on our Etsy shop later this week.  Have a look at Brightgirl’s blog for some more pics of this precious little ballerina enjoying her party.


Valentine’s Love

Valentines Day is getting closer and while we aren’t huge believers in the whole Valentines day extravaganza, we do love to send little love notes to make our hubbies feel special and loved, prehaps with a chocolate or two. A little note can say it all so we have designed a quirky Valentines downloadable, which will be available on our Esty store in the next day or so. Enjoy spoiling the one you love and remember that it doesn’t have to be Valentines Day to tell someone that you love them.

Kitchen Tea Loveliness

A few months ago, Lesley asked us to help with some paper decor for the kitchen tea she was organising for her best friend.  With the wine farm venue decided, and breakfast booked, she wanted something fun but appropriate for the morning.  So we created a French-inspired printable kit which Lesley took to Cape Town and DIY-ed.  We were so chuffed with the kit that we used it for a giveaway a few months after.  And then we got these pics of Lesley’s stunning breakfast in our inbox, and we just had to share them.  Thanks Lesley, you did an amazing job – c’est magnifique!

You can now buy this kit as a printable download on our Etsy.com store, just click here to see it.
