Polkadot Perfect

Images via
I am baker I just LOVE this for a party theme...simple yet striking. I love how this was created using lots of white, plus bursts of lolly colours, its fun and modern. A cute idea for a baby shower!

There are countless things you could use to style a polka dot party. This has really inspired me.

The new look Little Pinwheel

I had the pleasure of designing the original Little Pinwheel Website just over a year ago. I have watched LPW grow....and I have found a beautiful online friend in Hayley (extra bonus).

I am thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Hayley again to give LPW a makeover for its first birthday. Its a more grown up LPW, its a cool and contemporary backdrop to showcase an awesome range of clothing.

Check it out

Sometimes I am truely blown away by the fabulous and innovative ideas some people come up with. During my monday morning blog read I came across 'enjoy cupcakes' via Style Me Pretty (awesome business name by the way..hehe..I discovered this blog a couple of months after I registered my business name, a real eye candy blog!).

Its a mobile cupcakery!, the most devine cupcakes come to your party in a gorgeous little caravan (or RV as they say in the US), 'Guest will ENJOY treats served out of an adorable restored vintage Shasta trailer...twinkling lights, a festive canopy & a wafting sweet smell will make your event unique & unforgettable'.

..and dont even get me started on the cupcake flavours that have...OMG;

Ginger Lime Chardonnay

Chardonnay cake, filled with lime curd, topped with chardonnay frosting and sugared lime zest

Sugar Daddy

Vanilla bean cake, filled with House made caramel, topped with swirled caramel cream cheese frosting

Brown Bottom

Chocolate cake, with a peanut butter cream cheese chocolate chip filling, topped with peanut butter frosting & mini chocolate chips

Can someone please start a moble cupcakery in Oz !!

P.S. This post is esp for you Sunny ;-) I know you will love it !

Hi Guys,

Sorry but a bit of a sad post today.

Some of my design work has been stolen, and ended up being sold on etsy as a pre-made' logo. After contacting the shop owner it has been taken down, fingers have been pointed and I don't know how it has started, who started it, and who to trust...

I know this happens to so many people, every day, today it has happened to me, it is so upsetting when you put so much heart into your work as I do.

I just want to say, to any copycats out there, that it is a small world and you WILL be caught out and shamed eventually, Karma IS real.

I want to thank all my true followers that support me, it is with your support and encouragement that I will keep on designing with my head held high.

smiles & rainbows...

1. rainbow cake via babyology 2. carol playsuit candy stripe from Little Pinwheel
3. cake topper from togetherforever on etsy 4. rainbow earrings from oddgirlcreates on etsy

i was inspired for this months colour in by rainbows, they have been popping up on blogs (and in the sky) everywhere. First i fell in love with the cake you see above when it showed up on babyology, then Sharnel's post on My Life, My Loves got me even more excited....a rainbow theme is now on my ideas list for Max's 1st birthday in october, i think it could be pulled off for a baby boys birthday dont you ? i have to do the themes i want to do for the boys parties before they get too old and start making demands :-)
there are so many things u could do to style a rainbow party, and the kids could paint rainbows as an activity, this rainbow cake business could be quite fiddly though!

Download your FREE colour-in sheet for your little ones from my website here.

Happy colouring!

Max's naming day - more inspiration

A while ago I showed you all my inspiration for my son's naming day coming up in march, see here, not long to go now until the big day for Max, Ive been collecting lots of bits and pieces and will be busy this weekend making all the paper decorations.

I thought Id show you a few more things Ive found/bought this week that are in theme;

1. I bought this cute little onesie from minienvy for something comfortable for Max to wear after the naming ceremony

2. I ordered some little elephant cut-outs from etsy, the same as the ones above (sorry cant remember which blog I found this image), Im just hoping they will arrive from the US on time for the party, after doing a google search today I discovered that they are made using a martha stewart craft punch!

3. I ADORE these vintage paper straws, Im sad that I cant find an Australian store to buy them from, I wont have time to get them from the US now :-(, and Ive only seen them in red and blue, oh the red ones would be SO cool for a circus theme party!
