Its no longer blowing up a tired bunch of balloons that you bought from the ‘local hot dollar’ parties have never been more planned and primped! Whether your bub is turning one or you boo is having a milestone celebration¬† pinterest boards are awash with ‘eye popping’ ideas, overflowing food tables, lush candy bars there is no limit to the uber party!

Who sais turning one is meant to be some sad soggy snakes when you can have tada!…. A pink and gold fusion of loveliness…inspired by a disco chic theme party I styled for my dinky client.

If all else fails throw in colour! Yes we love a monochrome theme but colours, textures and shapes have never been more on trend.  Harlequin prints, chevron, link prints are the perfect compliment to your linen or accessories for your next party.

Events Inspired by Love!


Everybody loves a party there are few exceptions! Bring on the 2014 #Confetti Fair ! An adorable event expo featuring everything¬†and everyone who has anything ¬†to do with planning a party or wedding!¬† As soon as heard this I was first in line, hand waving, jumping up and down, scrambling together all my ideas for how to plan the perfect display for my given space!¬† Cue guest speaker the talented and inspiring Kara Allen [#kara’spartyideas] and add even more spice to¬†this eye popping, ooh and aahing ‘party expo’!¬† With a million ideas running through my creative maze of a brain I finally decided on a theme! How wrong can you go with a garden theme, its fresh, bright and happy.¬† Who wouldn’t want a party styled in this vain!¬† Gone are the days of sad single balloons floating on a table its all about theming, colours, cakes pops, signature biscuits, giant gumball balloons and striped straws.¬† It’s the mega party!¬† And what better way to create your ‘mega party’ than engage the help of a stylist!¬† Roll on Confetti fair a one stop non stop roller coaster ride of display areas overflowing with talented party planners, cake makers, wedding stylist, party suppliers, dessert and candy table stylist.¬† Each one more beautiful than the next.¬† Creative compulsives, this is the place for you!¬† Cakes that would make even Marie Antoinette swoon, balloons with swinging fluffy tails, neon feather suspended in air, flowers set in hand dipped glitter vases!¬† Forgive me while I ramble on but it was equally as gratifying being in a space with such talented vendors as it was to see my stand come to life after all the months of planning!¬† Go figure that the very next day I was off to style a first birthday party and yes you guessed it!¬† It was all about confetti!

My client asked for a glorious cacophony of forth – all things ‘over the top’ for their function which I delivered with pleasure! The children’s special tables were decorated with oversized flowers, buckets, netting, giant pin wheels and fun pink paper handbags ! Along with my giant paper flowers, soda cups with bendy straws were placed on the table and filled with bubbly drinks. Having searched for hours to find giant size oversize flowers which I unearthed in the dusty room of a daycare centre – kindly they agreed to hire them out to me. These became excellent centerpieces;both moveable and malleable. Giving me the flexibility to style them every which way.
The adults tables had their own treatment…Giant T Cups filled with varying floral designs; moss rocks others had huge pink dalias, mini tea cups and floating candles. Suspended throughout the room oversize confetti balloons, created by Mad Balloons… Adding to the glamour was this incredible sushi display, complete with every imaginable sushi sushi roll for guests to enjoy!

Thanks to inflight for profiling my events this week

Gelato colours everywhere….

Gelato Colours

I had a wish to work with ‘polka dots’ and stripes. I even dream in dots and stripes.

My fairygodmother client was listening, and I was able to design this party using alternate striped and polka dot chair covers.¬† ¬†A confection of ‘gelato colours’ transformed the room into an ice cream parlour with punches of pastel colours.¬† Contrasting striped and polka dot runners tied in with the floating gumball balloons across the room.¬† Completing this candy themed were¬† large tea cups brimming with candies, sugar crystals and swirly lollipops.¬† Miniature test tubes filled with jellybeans were set at each table setting along with chocolate milk bottles and chocolate bubbles cereal…yum!¬†¬† I am unnaturally obsessed with¬† stripes and dots. A wonderful wedding idea; avocado stripes or caramel striped table linen?¬† Love to hear your comments or view your parties using polka dot’s and stripes!
