Where weddings, children's parties, DIY and event stationery come to life!Entries (RSS) and Comments (RSS)
When it was time for my daughter Keely to turning seven, I wanted to do a theme that showed just how much we adore her, hence the theme of ‘deer’ in a woodland theme evolved.
Whilst Keely’s birthday is in the middle of our Australian winter, the weather was a blessing – it was still sunny enough to be outside and enjoying the sunshine.
This meant the wonderful team at Pirates and Fairies that I’d hired were able to do themed activities with the guests, everything from making woodland fairy tiaras to woodland animal face-painting. We also decorated beautiful MDF trees from Party Ideas In A Box and decorated them with Woodland animal stickers.
When it came time to doing the dessert buffet, there were heaps of enticing options.
The most creative things were that I had melted down Caramel Jerseys into an acorn shape and dipped the ends in chocolate to create Acorns.
There were Snowballs dipped in red chocolate, adorned with white chocolate buds and marshmallows, that created red toadstools.
Every berry lolly imaginable, everything from generic red raspberries to Starburst fruits were on the table and this looked fabulous next to the bright red canisters of Jaffas that were interspersed with white Kool mints in a polka dot pattern.
Beautiful cookies made by Crumbs of Yum were done in toadstool and mossy green rabbits.
Sugar Pop Bakery were the geniuses behind the cutest gluten-free chocolate cake pops in fox and toadstool designs that you’ve ever seen!
Chocolate coated biscuits, liquorice, bullets and wafer sticks were all terrific foods for twig and branch looking table items.
Lastly, the cake was 2 simple store bought chocolate sponge rolls that were decorated with chocolate frosting and the beautiful fondant figures by Sugar and Stripes Co
Right now the hottest trends around weddings at the moment has got to be Stripes and Botanicals. The mixture of the bold patterns and the softness of the beautiful florals makes this a match made in heaven. Have a look at our gorgeous mood board for some beautiful inspiration.
