Calling All Party Animals!

Another year and another birthday party!

This time my youngest son had his 5th birthday party at The Royal Melbourne Zoo so a safari theme seemed most appropriate!

The party was in August so being Melbourne it was lucky we booked the exclusive indoor space ‘Growing Wild Room’ which was inclusive of children’s furniture and a meerkat viewing window and away from the rain!

I really wanted a fun and colourful theme so I bought some bright coloured buckets and filled them with banana flavoured fairy floss, personalised chocolate bar (to match the invitation) and a cute animal cookie. The kids loved their buckets and ate the sweets as soon as they sat down!

After lunch and some games, the party hosts took all the kids to see the seals and some crocodiles (they are my sons favourite zoo animal!)

I ordered an amazing 2 tier safari themed cake with matching cupcakes. It was such a fun day and the kids (and their parents!) had a blast!

Clever Girl … Welcome to Jurassic Park!

My 8 year old son recently watched Jurassic Park for the first time and since then he is obsessed with Dinosaurs! He especially likes large & scary ones! For his 8th birthday, I styled a classic Jurassic Park themed dessert table and party. I used the logo as the background but changed the wording to Zac’s Park. Everything was personalised with the famous logo to water bottles and chocolate bars. I made up Jurassic Park Visitor Passes so every child got to wear a pass to make the experience even more real. We had a T-Rex Pinata and I organised an outdoor movie night for everyone to watch … you guessed it … Jurassic Park! The kids had an absolute ball!

An Adventure 65 Million Years in the Making.

My eldest son will be turning 8 in February and at the moment he is obsessed with Dinosaurs. We saw Jurassic Park for the first time together and he absolutely loved it (and I was jumping in my seat when I saw that huge T-Rex!) and I thought a ‘Jurassic Park’ themed party would be such a blast.

I have designed the backdrop and all printables and I thought we could have an outdoor movie night and play  … you guessed it … Jurassic Park! I’ll post some more pics of the party in the New Year …

Hen’s Night Invite

A friend is getting married in December and my sister is Bridesmaid so she has the fun task of organising her Hen’s Night! She asked me to help her create a fun invite. The bride to be loves pink so I created something fun but still mature. Wishing Arita a wonderful Hen’s Night!

I have a new Business Logo!

I have been thinking up names for my new business venture and I really liked the sound of “Zig Zag” as it’s catchy and fun and suits a business that mainly focuses around Children’s parties.

I love the simplicity of black and white together as it looks sophisticated and the crown on top of the letter ‘I’ gives it a royal touch! (I am known to be a bit of a Princess sometimes!).

Hope you like it as much as I do ….

Mini Coopers and more Mini Coopers!

I just finished styling my son’s 3rd birthday dessert table and as you can see by the pictures it was Mini Cooper madness!

I loved this theme as I thought it was fun and modern and the colour theme of red, baby blue, black & white worked great together. I kept the Minis all red with black roofs and accents. All we need now is to buy Adam a real Mini Cooper so we can cruise around town! Enjoy …

Mini Cooper Madness!

My youngest son is turning 3 in August and he is obsessed with cars … BMWs, Audis, Mazdas and most recently Mini Coopers!

I am preparing his dessert table and naturally the theme is everything Mini Coopers. I just finished wrapping his chocolate bars and they look adorable. The colour theme is Baby Blue, Red, White. I used the Mini Logo with his name inside and also a Mini Cooper with the number plate ‘Adam is 3’. I am looking forward to styling this party next month and sharing some photos with you all soon!

A’hoy! Adam is 1

I wanted to create something spectacular for my youngest sons 1st birthday party. After we chose a beach side location — a nautical theme seemed appropriate!

I worked alongside Belinda from Styled By Belle again and a wonderful nautical adventure theme was created.

It was such a wonderful and memorable day and even though the party was in the middle of a Melbourne winter, the sun shone and the ships sailed on the water right outside our window!

Enjoy …

Easter Treats …

For Easter this year I created these beautiful chocolate bars for my sons to give to their friends and teachers.

They are a beautiful and elegant gift that look impressive and taste yummy! They are a great alternative to Easter Eggs.

I used milk & white chocolate bars. Wishing you all a fabulous Easter … Try not to eat too much chocolate !
