IN GOOD HANDS - Washi Tape Wednesday

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

It's Washi Tape Wednesday, and we are sharing some great ideas from Living At Home magazine. The ideas are beautifully styled and the colours just perfect for autumn, so I am sure you will be inspired to use a bit of the magic tape to usher in the new season.


Today's idea is not new, but what I like about creating this type of art gallery wall is that it only takes a few minutes and is not permanent. A great excuse to print out a few photos, find some old ones and stick up some of those lovely ones you see in magazines. And when you are bored or the season changes, swap it out with something new!

GOOD LOOKS - The Pink Pony Party Collection

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

pink ponies

Every year there is one new party ware collection that totally steals the show and my heart, and this year it has to be the Pink Pony Collection imported from Talking Tables in the UK. I nearly cried when I saw the preview last year, not only because it is everything and more that I would create in a dream Pony collection but that I had literally had Bailey's Pony Party not even a week before and this would have been so so perfect! The collection is in a word: "amazing" and I am awarding it my First Prize ribbon for the Best Party Collection 2015.


THINGS WE LOVE:

The rosette shaped party invites and the pretty floral envelope that comes with. 

The shirt shaped napkins and rosette ribbons not only function as table ware and prizes/favours but also make for great garland.
 

The giant rosettes are an amazing idea for decorations and I love the idea for a photo booth backdrop.
 
Each place setting will look so put together with the matching plates, cups, napkins and even a little trophy with a prize ribbon made into a place card.


I love the table centre as it is made up of mini hay bales, ponies and a grass runner. The runner a great addition to your party collection as can equally be used for any "outdoor" or Easter themed party too. Plus, we also have burlap runners too!
 

How fantastic are these little treat boxes? Great for veggie snacks, but also sweet treats and flowers!
 
Create a dessert table using the prize ribbons, garland, milk bottles and the ultimate cake topper and wrapper shaped like a picket fence! I kid you not! How amazing!

GOOD PLAN - Dala Horse Party Invite

horsing around

For Bailey' s Pony Party, I added a bit of a Swedish twist by having the horse being a Dala Horse. And then instead of the most likely colours of a horse party being pinks and browns, I opted for bright red and green and added in pink - all inspired by Meri Meri's Dala Horse stationery line.

The perfect venue happened to be just in the next town to us: a farm that specialises in kids horse riding and not only was the "decor" taken care of, so too were the activities (more about that later). 

So now that the date, time, place and design for the invitation were all decided, I was able to get Amanda our graphic designer the go ahead - and this is the invitation she came up with! 

My favourite party being the RSVP details: totally cracks me up!

GOOD PLAN - A Dala Horse Party

pony party

We're all about ponies this week, and kicking off tomorrow I am sharing all the ideas, printables and photos of my daughter's Dala Horse Party late last year. 


The inspiration behind the party actually came from this stationery box designed by Meri Meri. Unfortunately, Meri Meri only have this design in the stationery box, a greeting card and a cookie cutter. But I was determined to pull off this look and many of the ideas will help you translate a specific theme into a party where no party ware is to be found.
