Happy 10th Birthday!

So this week the littlest frog turned 10!
She celebrated her birthday with a tropical themed party at home, which involved bracelet making and party games with her friends.The house was decorated with brightly coloured tissue paper flowers and paper chains, plastic inflatable tropical characters and a colourful fabric door curtain.  Each of the party guests was presented with a lei necklace and handmade hair clip to wear at the party and then to take home in their strawberry print party bags, which I made too.  Brightly coloured sweets, their bracelet creation, a pot of bubbles and some homemade party cake made up the contents of each bag.

The hair clips were made from a lei which I took apart and glued back together with a hair clip attached.  An absolute steal as floral hair clips can cost around £4 each, whereas these homemade ones were approximately 75p each.

Party food consisted of funky milk bottles decorated with paper straws and paper umbrellas.  We added lemonade to our bottles.  A brightly coloured salad served with burgers and hot dogs was very popular with the party guests, followed by orange jelly with pineapple pieces, homemade lollies with pineapple pieces and orange juice, fresh fruit kebabs and pineapple and coconut fairy cakes.
This year’s birthday cake was my own creation of chocolate cake with nutella frosting in the middle and on top, with as many chocolate sprinkles as I could fit on!  It tasted delicious x

Gold and Black Christmas table styling

I treated my Christmas guests to a black and gold styled Christmas table this year, which they all really enjoyed xI took these images on my iPhone to save time, but the quality is obviously not as good as my DSLR.

The details:-

1.  gold spray painted cutlery and wine glasses

2.  cutlery tied with black velvet ribbon

3.  black and gold Christmas crackers

4.  black tissue wrapped surprise gift for each guest

5.  gold table cloth which was actually a slightly stretchy fabric bought from my local fabric shop

6.  black round table mats

7.  centre-piece – gold vase with cream artificial flowers and gold and black butterflies attached

8.  black and gold butterflies scattered on the table together with black and gold Christmas tree baubles, some gold Lindt chocolate reindeer and some small Christmas votives

9.  black and gold name place cards and black paper napkins

Baby Shower

I not only had the pleasure of photographing this baby shower, but I was the stylist for the event too!

The theme for the baby shower was a vintage tea party and in consultation with my client we decided on a pastel colour scheme.  For the event I created a number of key pieces:-

~ a handmade clay teddy bear for mum-to-be’s place setting at the table

~ tissue paper pom poms

~ baby bunting with voile pom poms, handmade baby trousers, bibs made from card and rosettes added to simple white baby vest, all hung on string with co-ordinating pegs

~ baby toys and accessories were used and scattered around the venue

~ another variation of a baby washing line bunting, using baby clothes and small teddy bears

~ napkins folded into the shape of a rabbit

~ handmade bunting embellished with letters and buttons

~hand rolled baby clothes sitting in cases to look like cupcakes

~ wooden letters covered with paper to match the colour scheme

~baby bottles filled with crystals used as weights for the helium filled balloons

…and here are the photos…

My final piece is an image I turned into nursery art as a baby shower gift.
