ladybug party

Thought I would share with you a ladybug party I created for Hannah...many moons ago!
This was for her 2nd birthday. I can't believe my baby girl is turing six in March!
I must have felt crafty back then... as I made the drinking cups look like ladybugs and also made ladybug headbands for each child to wear.

Everyone came in dressed in red. Very cute!

pink baby shower

I was very honoured to host my sister-in-law's baby shower on the weekend.
She has been living in Dubai for the last 5 years and is finally home for good, so we thought it would be nice share her joy with family and friends.

As you can see, she is expecting a little girl, so it was pink, pink, pink!

Tissue pom poms were used to soften the room.. they were like huge marshmellows! Thank you to ah tissue for the inspiration! Daneve has a beautiful online store.

Invitation/Banners/cupcake toppers/thank you tags:
Designed by raspberrycreative (me).
Will be available on my website soon.

On arrival, each guest received a pink mini dummy bracelet on white ribbon
(pictured with milk bottles) Very cute!

The guests took home a little treat of milk bottles. (Available at Coles).

Cake: Hummingbird cake - homemade by me! An egg free option so I could eat it! Yum!
Punch: Last minute - make it up as you go along... pineapple and cocomut juice, lemonade and raspberry cordial.. It was a hit!!!!!!

Overall, it was a beautiful gathering. The joy of seeing a glowing mum to be, the smiles on everyone's faces, the wonderful advice she received (good and scary)and the feeling that I have made a wonderful memory for Anita to cherish.

cupcake toppers

The floods in Brisbane have brought stories of heroism and heartache and lots of tears on several occassions. The creek behind us was swollen and fast flowing, but thankfully never reach our back fence. I am so lucky that my family and friends are safe and I hope the same for your loved ones.

Onto a cheerful note...
I am in the middle of designing some delight cupcake toppers to match my range of invitations. Here is a sneak preview of the the girls mini-masterchef design (there is also a boys them as well). These will be launching in February and I have already had several wholesale stockist orders..whoohooo!

Be safe this storm season xx

christmas spirit

It has taken me awhile to get into decorating my own home for Chrissy, when I have been living in 'christmasland' with my wonderful clients. I feel like I am apart of their christmas as I place their beautiful family pics into our personalised christmas card range.

So, to get the ball rolling, I took the kiddies for a drive to see the christmas lights. A lovely woman opened her home to strangers to view her beautifully deocorated lightshow. She walked around with a beeming smile and a basket of out chocolates for the kids. Also in hand was paper to write a letter to santa and a gorgeous red letterbox to place the letter in. There was even an area on her porch to play with musical toys.... what great xmas spirit!!!!
So, I decided to decorate outside, not with lights (thats my hubby's job), but with subtle pom pom! Simple yet effective once again!

To end this note with christmas cheer and a glass of bubbles in hand .... have a wonderful and safe christmas and new year. May all your dreams come true in 2011!
Thanks you all for your support xx

talented mums in business

I have to share some mummy talents that Australia has to offer!
Check out this beautiful dress I bought online from Shan at Missy Melly. My daughter absolutely loves it! I also bought this felt hairclip from Abby J at the Matilda markets in Brisbane which matches perfectly. The gorgeous model you see here is the precious Hannah, my 5 year old gem. She tells me its going to be her christmas dress but could she wear it down to the post office just to show it off.

christening cupcake topper and matching banner

Here is a cupcake topper and banner I designed for a friends christening of her beautiful girl Lucy who had to overcome an amazing heart operation when she was a couple of days old. It was a very special and precious day!
