We had a birthday in the house last week and with thanks to Emily from Emiko Blue we were able to celebrate with the prettiest of party bags and one very cute balloon.
Sofia turned 9 and asked to take her friends to Skyzone trampoline park here in Sydney. In my usual attempts to make things a little prettier and girlier we stayed away from the traditional trampoline colours and were thrilled when Emily delivered to us the pretty pink and gold spot party bags and an Eat Cake balloon.
Liv from Jack + Hunter create a cake using the trampoline theme but in the pink, black and gold colours! So perfect to add a bit more glamour to the party.
I know a number of people have been searching for perfect online stores to pick up good quality products for their party ever since I closed down my online store and Emiko Blue is perfect for just this. Emily really does have a beautiful array or high quality products that can be hard to find in Australia.
To help celebrate Sofia’s birthday Emiko Blue are offering Sweet Style Readers a 20% discount on anything in the store. All you need to do is enter the code SWEETSTYLE at checkout to receive your discount. This offer is valid until Friday 10th April.
Happy New Year to Everyone!
We celebrated with wonderful friends and family sharing a meal followed by the magic of watching the Sydney fireworks all from our backyard – feeling very blessed. I made an attempt at catching sparklers in action as well.
I was looking back through some photos earlier in the week and realised that while I showed some photos of Sienna the week of her 10th Birthday back in August, I actually never showed any of the photos from her party.
This year we celebrated her birthday with a small slumber party with her 3 closest friends. The girls arrived mid afternoon for some “girl time” which included afternoon tea with adorable themed treats – cookies, choc coated oreos and some mini chocolate bars – all made by Donna from Sweet Table . We then headed out for an early dinner at a local restaurant and home for cake and movie watching. The yummy bumble bee cake was made by Anna from The Floury Baker.
The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of smoothies, hot chocolate, banana bread, pancakes and eggs.
As the girls arrived they each received a calico tote bag with their Essentials Sleepover Kit inside. These sweet bags were created by Nicole from Penny Lane Studio and inside I included pyjamas, a cute eye mask and some nail polish – all items the girls got to take home as their favour bag.
We had a wonderful wonderful celebration – Sienna has the most polite and lovely friends who made the party so much fun. As is all the rage with 10 year olds they put together a fantastic Video Star clip which I have attached at the bottom of this post! Another simple party with a few special details to tie things together! Bit of a motto for life really!
Simple, elegant and special events are the best aren’t they! Today I have some images from the perfect Holy Communion created by my lovely friend Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design for her beautiful daughter Daisy.
Daisy celebrated her First Holy Communion with a gorgeous celebration that featured glitter, gold, cream and peach. I love that Daisy’s hair accessory is a piece that Gillian snipped off the bottom of her wedding veil and had made – so special.
Details of where you can find everything is listed at the bottom of the post.
