Another fun tag from Tanya at Life’s Little Celebrations who has asked me to join in and list the top 5 items on my Christmas Wish list. 
So here it is
1. A gorgeous secret tablet by Uberkate (can never have enough Uberkate)
2. A new camera bag and in particular this one by Kelly Moore which you can buy here at Camera Chick
3. Some lovely new Sambag wedges
4. A new lens for my camera – lusting after the Canon 100mm prime lens
5. A new display cabinet for all my beautiful cake stands to live in
So now I need to pass this on to some more blogging friends so we can see their wish list

Last weekend I put together a pretty dessert table for a baby shower.
I still love this colour pallet whenever I see it together – pink and yellow, and here I added a touch of chocolate

Mum to be, Bonnie had sent out invitations that had a little umbrella on them so we decided to stick with the umbrella theme for the cake and cookies. 

The beautiful cake, cookies and cake pops were made by Jacki from Blissfully Sweet Cakes.  I made some delicious vanilla panacotta’s (you can get the recipe here) and also added macaroons, meringues, personalised chocolate bars and jars of sweets for the guests to take home.  A delicious punch was also served.
Simple and elegant – just perfect for the occasion.

Very excited that this party has been featured today over on Amy Atlas’ blog – thanks Amy and Lisa.
All cake stands, glassware, mini pots, spoons, enjoy stamp, tablecloth and single colour lollies can be found in the Sweet Style Store here.

Time to kick off a series of Christmas Favour and Gift Inspiration ideas.   
I am starting with something traditional – Red and Green –  the options to choose from are endless with this colour combination so here is what I have come up with.
Little jars filled with chocolate beans or bon bons. Tie some twine around the top or a ribbon around the middle and you have the cutest little gift.
These perfect little clip jars are great for teachers presents – I have added some choc dipped marshmallows inside, tied it with bright ribbon and added a tag.  These jars are now available in the sweet style store.
Some pretty paper bags filled with Christmas cookies – delicious!
A box of treats for the kids.
Little biscuits in scalloped boxes – so cute!  These biscuits are from the local supermarket making it simple and easy.
Mini Chevron bags also look perfect with Christmas biscuits.
Giant jaffas or gum balls look great in these little boxes.
The ribbed jars look lovely with the marshmallows in them also.
Cupcake cases look so delicious filled with jelly beans.
Pine plates lined with more marshmallows – add a ribbon, wrap with some twine and a merry christmas tag and you are set to head off to Christmas drinks with the neighbours.
I hope you have enjoyed a little bit of Christmas inspiration – a new colour way next week, something not as traditional.  Do you do traditional christmas colours or something a little different?
All of the jars, bottles, stamps, ribbon, twine, candy and bags are available in the Sweet Style store


Happy Monday everyone.
I had to share these cute photos from a few weeks ago.
Imagine her delight when she woke from her afternoon nap to find mummy taking products shots for the website of Jelly Beans!  The very reason I try to do all my product photos when no kids are around.

Single coloured Jelly Beans are available in the shop – perfect for your next dessert or candy table – as long as your two year old doesn’t get to them first.
