Our beautiful little Indi turned three this week.  I still can’t believe my baby is three – all week she has been telling us “I’m a big girl now!”  It is amazing that once they turn three they get the birthday thing.  I don’t think she could believe that it was all about her as she is so used to sharing the spotlight with her sisters.  We didn’t have a big party this year but we did have a special celebration with the most gorgeous cake and cookies and other sweet treats that we shared with grandparents – yes there were pictures that I will share soon!
Here are two of my favourite instagram pictures of the birthday girl from the week.
This weeks tablecloth giveaway has been HUGE!  Thank you to everyone who has entered – you still have a few hours to get your entries in (here) and I will be back on Monday to let you know the lucky winner. 
I have also started adding some new paper goods into the shop – so far the lovely lace range has found it’s way onto the website (here) with more to come soon.
Have a lovely weekend everyone – see you on Monday with a winner!

Tissue paper balls and fans make a great addition to any party.  Balls look great hanging over a table or around the room and fans looks just wonderful on the wall behind a table as a backdrop.
We now have a large range of tissue paper balls and fans in the store in all the colours of the rainbow.
Here are a few of the great colours and you can find them in the store here under decorations and props.

Black is so on trend at the moment and their have been some gorgeous parties around the internet that use these colours beautifully.  Black teams up with so many other colours so it is a great colour to use for all types of events.
I am particularly loving the use of black cake stands – they add such elegance and drama to a table.  Here are some of my favourites.

Friday is rolling around again!  It has been another busy week at SS headquarters – thank you for your orders this week and the constant lovely messages about the new products.
Pastels are the colour of the week – a photoshoot which will be revealed soon that revolved around the pretty colours of pink, yellow, blue and green – so fresh and happy to make winter seem brighter
The location of my shoot was near the water and I soon learnt the joys of food on display and birds who were just determined to try my patience!  Here are few of my instagram sneak peak shots from the week including one particular pesky bird that would just not go away until he got what he came for!  Definitely needed a dedicated bird chaser for this shoot! 
Also a little bit of advanced warning that we are taking a little holiday (yay) – last orders will go out Tuesday 3rd July and we will begin sending out again on Tuesday 17th July – if you are after party goods for your July parties pop those orders in over the next week so they have plenty of time to reach you.  You will still be able to place orders during the time we are away but they just won’t be shipped until after we are back.
Hope you have a lovely weekend – I have a great giveaway happening on the blog on Monday so do drop by to find out more.
