GOOD LIFE - Real Life Parties

preppy party

When I was in SA last month, I had the honour of helping out my friend Natalie with two functions. The first was her little boy Daniel's baptism.

We went for a "Ralph Lauren" and "Tommy Hilfiger" theme with the bold preppy stripes and colour palette of royal nay blue, red and white.
Our graphic designer created a "royal" crest bearing Daniel's initials and naturally flanking it with two lions aka Daniel and the Lion's Den. This was carried through from the save the date, to the invitation to the table accessories and the thank you card.

Picking up on the "old school" theme, the Food Emporium in Broadacres with it's Cape Dutch architecture and wooden furniture was the perfect venue. Long tables were set up "canteen style" and dressed in bold royal blue table runners, vintage glass hurricanes filled with King and Red proteas and trimmed with red, blue and white petersham ribbon bows.
And of course, the whole room was drapped in metres and metres of bunting.

The food was divine - a full English breakfast, and special little mini tea trays of food for the kiddies and cupcakes and lollipops (customised of course!).

As part of the invitation, little book plates were sent saying FROM THE LIBRARY OF, encouraging guests to build up Daniel's Library.
