Hetal’s Hen Party…

I had the pleasure of organising my gorgeous friend and godmother to my daughters hen party and loved every minute of it! Here’s a little bit of what I did…
I went for an Indian theme as Hetal is Indian and loves elephants, I also love the lucky symbolism an elephant with his trunk up has. Henna patterns are also so so pretty.

I made goodie bags for the bride and all the hens, each with a picture of the bride and hen on the front, or in the brides her and the lucky groom to be, Eddy.
Homemade red velvet cupcakes were a must for this bride, I know her groom will have stolen a few when she got home also!

Inside were a couple of cute gifts including a lucky elephant charm bracelet, a bindi, hen badges and cute trinket pot.

There were also a few items for games in there. We each had a fake engagement ring and weren’t allowed to say the trigger word ‘Eddy’ all night, of course I lost at my own game within minutes of course! Delcina collected the most rings in the evening, she was definitely more on the ball than me!
We each had a wooden spoon and wrote a ‘recipe for love’ on it… I thought a cute momento for the evening and decor for the new couple to look back on.
A ‘date night’ jar was also filled with ideas from all the hens.

The decor was my favourite part to organise, I found this beautiful elephant in homesense that became to focal point and collected jars for months before hand and decorated them in lace, Indian fabric trimmings, ribbons and drawn on henna art, a little tealight inside each one set the mood for the table perfectly. The purple runner with lace sections finished off the decor and pulled the colour theme for the wedding into the hen party.

A pinata was filled with secret underwear gifts from each hen, so much fun to watch her try to work out which gift was from which hen!

I thought I’d finish with a little selfie… I don’t get a chance to glam up much and I love my bindi!
Pinterest was a godsend when working out what games and decor for the hen party, I wanted to organise a classy hen but fun hen with beautiful gifts Hetal would actually want to keep.

Neon ‘Valentina’ T-shirt…

The neon green ‘Valentina’ tshirt was a limited edition piece that has just sold through, however it is a favourite of mine and Amber has just had a gorgeous photoshoot with the lovely Kerry at Lookphotos photography so I had to do a little blog post for it…

image

I’m loving the rainbow tutu also, something that Kerry will soon be stocking in her studio along with a few of my pieces so you can rock up to your babies birthday shoot and purchase some pretties to wear!
The pigtail bows are also a perfect match from another local girl Supercute Hairbows

More neons coming soon, I cannot wait to get making them! We just need a little more sun now πŸ™‚

Ambers birthday party

This blog has been seriously neglected, I’ve organised a hen party and Amber’s 2nd birthday party along with orders coming out of my ears!
I went for a unicorn theme for Amber’s birthday as she has quite an obsession with pony’s at the moment…

image

We had pin the tail on the unicorn, a unicorn piΓ±ata, unicorn hobby horses, tiaras and unicorn headbands.

image

These were my favourite to make even if I was up till silly o clock the night before! Adults and babies loved these, even the boys!

Amber looked gorgeous in her huge tutu and one off peplum top in a gorgeous neon floral, the tutu however was trashed from all the jumping and running around like a loon…

image

I was pretty proud of the cake even if it didn’t quite look like I first imagined, it was my first big cake bake also, I normally stick to cupcakes!
The sponge was coconut with vanilla buttercream icing, homemade meringues, chocolate decoration and sprinkles…
