{Celebrate} Audrey's Cake & Confetti Party (Part 1)

For Audrey's 5th birthday this year we decided to celebrate it with some cake & confetti!  I wanted the party to be fun, colourful and of course sweet, so what better than with confetti & cake and of course sprinkles!
l had the privilege of collaborating with some amazing women to bring this fun theme together and developed some amazing friendships in the process!  I love how a creative collaboration can bring together people from all parts of the world in the quest to create something memorable and special!

The lovely Sara from Confetti Sunshine set the scene for the party by creating the most adorable printables using some fabric l had bought for inspiration!  I love how well chevron and confetti work together and think it really is a match made in heaven!! You must pop on over to Sara's blog Confetti Sunshine for so many amazing ideas and of course the confetti printables!!

{Celebrate} Sniff, Swirl & Sip 30th Wine Tasting Birthday Party

Over the weekend we celebrated my sister in law turning 30 with a sniff, swirl and sip party.  A while ago we had hosted a wine tasting at their home and this time around she wanted to do a blind tasting to celebrate turning 30.  

{Celebrate} To Mom with Love...a Retro Tea Party for Mother's Day!

This Mother's day styled shoot was inspired by some beautiful free printables l found on Yesterday on Tuesday by Free Pretty Things For You .  I think it was love at first sight when l saw these pretty vintage floral printables which evoked a sense of nostalgia and took me back to the 1950's! It reminded me of bundt cakes and jelly slice and pretty little cupcakes with sugar flowers and so off to the kitchen l went to create a pretty retro inspired tea party for my best friend and our little girls!
