{Real Party} Rainbow Fairy Party

Several weeks ago (yes, I’m behind) my little girl celebrated her 4th birthday.  She had been asking for a rainbow fairy party months in advance and to be honest, I wasn’t so keen on another fairy party.  But as the weeks approached, no matter what other suggestions I made, she was determined to have a rainbow fairy party.  Of course, my DH kindly reminded me that the party is about the birthday girl, NOT the party obsessed mum!  So rainbow fairy party it was!

{Real Parties} Chocolicious

Last weekend I styled a chocolate party for a nine year old girl and her friends.  It was certainly a chocoholic’s heaven!  The excited guests made their own handmade chocolates to take home before hitting the dessert table filled with everything from homemade chocolate birthday cupcakes to meringue kisses filled with chocolate ganache and Belgian chocolate spoons.  We used a simple yet effective colour palette of red and chocolate brown.

{Real Parties} The Ice-cream Challenge

Two weekends ago, I had the privilege of creating a party for an eleven year old girl who wanted a Masterchef and Movie night party!  In true Masterchef form, the dessert table was created as the Masterchef pantry for these tween chefs to pick and choose ingredients for their sweet creations, with ice-cream being one of the main ingredients.

Inspired by the ice-cream bar created by Amy from Eat, Drink, Chic, the pantry included a selection of icecreams, toppings, sprinkles and other sweets.
