A party with ZERO stress!

A party with zero stress, does that even exist? Yip, it does! As a party planner I really toyed with the idea of still giving Oli a big elaborate party (it’s a way for me to build a portfolio, far more hoopla than he would choose), but, we had decided we’d go away to the…

A Monster Truck Celebration!

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to style a fabulous Monster Truck party for two of the cutest brothers ever! Their wonderful Mom gave me pretty much free reign when it came to styling the party and it was a fabulous change in theme for me! Of course, no party would ever be…

TUTTI FRUITTI Sophie is a cutie!

On the 6th April we got to celebrate the birth of our FOUR year old on her actual birthday for a change. Amidst every single (and I have several!) Weather app telling me we were in for ‘dangerous thunderstorms’ and ‘multiple showers in the morning’ – our morning-scheduled birthday party day rolled around and the…

A Gold and Tropical Celebration for baby “B”

The Carnival comes to town – Oli turns 6!

After postponing the party due to the birthday boy having an unexpected hospital stay – remember this post – the Carnival finally came to town! Oli and I probably started planning this party last year, directly after his Magic party – that’s how it works in our house – lots of forward planning! Oli immediately…

A very (un) Happy Birthday.

On Monday night, as we wrapped up Oli’s big boy bike and presents, we struggled to get him to sleep. Not because he was showing signs of any illness, but because he was so excited, he proclaimed he just ‘could not sleep’. I went to bed just after ten and could hear Oli talking, so…
