Island Blues

It's been warming up in Brisbane these last few weeks and summer seems just around the corner however I've been dreaming of here..............

As it's exactly where I'll be spending 6 glorious nights for my 10 year anniversary!  Ok so enough bragging, back to work...........................the gorgeous teal and blue shades of the ocean have been inspiring me to put together a little summer party.

I'm thinking of a lovely summers evening dinner under the stars with a few close friends...something like this would be nice...

However I would add a ton of tealights, more fairy lights in our huge trees we have and maybe some gorgeous blue bottles with little white blooms down the centre of the table.

I think some peach bellinis to begin with followed by some delicious seafood and pinot grio would go down quite nicely followed by some delicious lemon slices and creme brulee to finish.

Now to ensure the children don't interrupt us, I think I would have to set up something similar to this arrangement:

Now to begin the planning.................................

Green and White Sit Down Dinner

I have just arrived back from the Melbourne Gift Fair which was both exciting and inspiring, hence the lack of posts in the past few weeks!  I will post more about the gift fair over the next few days but wanted to share my latest event.  I created a sit down dinner for a gorgeous lady turning 40.  The only must was for the colour palette to contain shades of green.  I must say that I really enjoyed creating this concept and I especially discovered a passion for floral arranging which I hope to explore over the next year.

It was a lovely Brisbane winter's night, very intimate with a lot of laughter and chatter.  What more could you want for a memorable night.....

I stumbled upon this fantastic company 'Sydney Picnic Company' which has taken the humble picnic and turned it into a gorgeous affair complete with all the little trinkets needed to have a divine picnic excursion.

It's been so cold these last few days that just thinking about a summers picnic at the beach or under a leafy tree is just what I need!

Now....just to find someone similar offering this in Brisbane!

Black & White 40th

This week has been extremely busy for me with two events in one week.  However, I have enjoyed every minute of it and have now proved to myself that I'm completely ready to launch into a full-time business next year, which is quite exciting!

Here are some pictures from my latest event held last night.  Thanks to the lovely couple that hired me for Jamie's big 40 - cheers to you Bec & Jamie, I hope you had a fabulous night!

A couple of shout outs to all my suppliers for this event including Neal's Hire (Marquee - thanks Annabel), 247 Theming (Furniture - Thanks Pete!), Moreton Hire and Moonlight and Whimsy (Thanks Meg) for all the fantastic light strings and lanterns.

A big mention to Steph for her help on setup day and to my lovely compardre Kel (Bowie and Willow Images) for taking some lovely images on the night.

Super fun party

My little one turned 4 last Sunday (I can't believe it.....4!!).  He has been hung up on superheros since the age of 2 so I decided it was time to throw a superhero party for him.  15 superheros, 1 pinata, loads of sugary sweets and alot fun was had.  I can't wait to do another superhero party one of these years at this was a great party to put together with some super cute ideas.

Mummy's Day!

(source: my little jedi)

It's that time of year again when our cute as a button children wake us up early to shower us with homemade presents and little scribbled cards (and maybe even a coffee that makes you wonder where they actually got it from!).

As much as I love to put on an event and style every single detail, wouldn't it be nice to wake up in the morning and find this little setup in your backyard............................we can all dream can't we....!!??

This Mothers Day i will be sharing it with my youngest son who is turning 4.  I have to admit that I don't mind him 'stealing my thunder' this year as he's just so adorable and being the youngest is very very excited about this birthday.  Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful Mummy's out there! x
