I thought it was about time I posted a few photos from Indi’s 5th Birthday celebration that was back in June. 

We seemed to have a bit of a continuing theme with Sprinkles for this birthday – something we started last year when she turned 4 (you can see that party here).  

The main inspiration for the party started with a cake I spotted on Pinterest – I asked Liv from Jack + Hunter to create her version of the cake and the other desserts I created from there.  As well as the cake we had giant marshmallows dipped in sprinkles, mini pots of yogurt with sprinkles.

Just a few simple details, lots of white with pops of colour and my perfect party was created! Enjoy!

Have you found a Fathers Day gift for you dad, grandpa or husband yet?  Is he a surfer, a car lover or a foodie?

I am still deciding on the final purchase for the man in our house but in the meantime please check out these amazing finds which Fiona from Fiona Kate Simply Gorgeous helped me to curate – they are a combination of both of our favourite things!  Two of these great items come as free printables (the car desktop wallpaper and the food tags) so please click on their links to find them!

I have some Freebies for everyone today courtesy of Elise from Sweet Scarlet Designs!  

These are some of the cutest printables I have seen and are just perfect for Fathers Day!  

Elise has designed these brilliant Candy Bar Wrappers just for Sweet Style Readers.  All you need to create these guys is some of the Aldi Moser Roth Mini Choc Bars that can be found in packs in Aldi Stores Australia wide.  Print off the attached PDF file using a colour printer and then cut the designs out.   Full instructions are included in the download.   Twine has been used as the finishing touch on each chocolate bar.

There are four designs to chose from and there will be a lot of fun deciding which person best suits each design.  Does your loved one wear a tie or maybe he is more the Hawaiian Shirt type.  I can see a few granddads getting the bow tie design and then there are all those dads who spend their time with their tools in the garage!

With Fathers Day less than 2 weeks away I have some fun and simple ideas today to help with your Fathers Day Celebration on Sunday 7th September.

These very cute little Mini Pails can be found as part of the Styling Essentials Kits by Celebrations and Occasions, who put together gorgeous boxes of carefully curated party supplies and styling essentials for your special events!  

I had a go at creating three different ideas using these pails.  Use them as a sweet gift for dad or something to serve dessert in!  There are really so many uses for this great piece.

Find them here as part of the Rustic Food Station Kit where you can see all the great items included in the kit (the forks and blackboard signs are part of the kit also).


A lovely little mini cactus from your local plan shop looks great in these pots – write your guests name on the blackboard and this can be used as a favour or a table setting.sweet style-6679_w


Whose Dad doesn’t love donuts and when they come in the form of this cute cookie they are even better!
These fabulous cookies were made by Nicci from Frosted by Nicci and are great as a favour or to eat after your meal!

Dessert is always on the menu so why not use these pails to serve it in!  Stamp your cutlery with your favourite words and you have the perfectly styled dessert.
I have made a no bake cheesecake to go in my pot but ice cream or mousse would work perfectly as well!

 My big girl Sienna turned 10 last week and we celebrated with a slumber party for just her and her 3 closest friends.  I will share some of those photos in the next few weeks but I just had to share these cute photos I took of her after the girls left.  Part of her birthday present from her friends were the very cute Witchery dungaree’s she is wearing plus the sweet gold triangle motif t-shirt – the glasses she seemed to think were fabulous props added a little bit of extra cuteness!  Happy Birthday gorgeous girl!
