Today’s Product Spotlight is on the simply lovely Vintage Asparagus Crate.

This gorgeous item is a great prop that works beautifully for an elegant Garden Party or Tea Party.

You can see how I have used the crate here with a big bunch of beautiful flowers in front of my mothers day table from last year.

Did you see the latest copy of Home Beautiful Australia Magazine?

If so you may have noticed some lovely Sweet Style products featured on page 143.

I love seeing how different stylists put products together.

Here you can see the lovely quilted mason jar and whiteware skirted medium cake stand.

Happy Monday Everyone.  I hope your weekend was fabulous!

I have spent the past few days at the Sydney Trade Fairs looking at lots of lovely new products to add to the store.  They will be slowly added to the store over the coming weeks and months so be sure to keep up to date with all our news on facebook and via out newsletter.

Today’s Monday Favourite feature is from Leony from Ma’cake in Sydney.  Such and fun and pretty novelty cake for a sweet 3 year old.  I always love to know how our the fabulous cake artists start their businesses so my Monday Favourite post will now included some interesting facts about the very talented ladies I feature.

Leony found her passion for novelty cakes when her son was born.  Preparing his first birthday party cake made her realise how much she loved doing cakes – the rest is history as she has now had her business for 4 years.
The most popular cake flavour that comes out of her kitchen is the Surabaya layer cake (it’s the indonesian specialty cake with lots and lots of egg yolk) with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  Doesn’t it sound heavenly!

If you would like to see more of Leony’s stunning work visit her website here or her facebook page here.

 Way back in August last year we celebrated Sienna’s 8th Birthday with a fun, easy and intimate Movie Party for 3 of her closest friends and sisters (of course!)

In keeping with my theme of small parties but still having all those fun and detailed elements I love so much I put together a tiny dessert table with a gorgeous cake by Jacki from Blissfully Sweet as well as popcorn, soda and the all important treat bags.

For this party we actually headed out to the local movie cinema to watch the latest kids movie – you can see the photos below of the girls having a lovely time just walking to and from the cinema (I am sure the locals wondered why some crazy mother was taking photos of her kids in a shopping centre!).  Each of the girls where given a movie pass/invite to wear around their neck at the beginning of the party and we took popcorn and drinks with us to eat during the show.

We then came home to celebrate further with pizza, popcorn, cake and drinks.
Nicole from Pretty and Print made the most wonderful set of printables for the occasion – it included the invite and movie pass, popcorn box wrappers, drinks wrappers, thank you tags and the fantastic Now Showing poster that certainly made Sienna look quite the movie star – such a lovely feature as it now lives on her wall in her bedroom so she can remember the day.
