pink champ

I would like to thank each and everyone of my blog readers for being apart of a fabulous 2010. Thanking for reading and commenting on my journey.

I hope you are with the people you love tonight on the last evening on 2010. And whatever you drink tonight, make sure it's good! Life's too short to drink bad champagne.

I'll see you all on the flip side.

Much love

Cookie Bar for Peekaboo Magazine

I hope everyone is enjoying their time celebrating over the holiday season. To say it's been a wet few weeks here in Brisbane is an understatement. We've been laying low, sleeping, reading and watching movies. Exactly what we needed I think.

I wanted to share with you all these images taken by Naomi V Photography of the Christmas Cookie Bar I styled for the Christmas edition of Peekaboo Magazine. All printables were designed by Polkadot Prints.

I wanted to create a Christmas Eve Cookie Bar that was kid and adult friendly. So for the kids I made up miniture cookie bags (Jordon from Polkadot used iron on transfers for the graphic) and used our signature mini glass bottle to house the milk.

And for Mums and Dads a Baileys Shot with a handmade liquor chocolate. Exactly what you need to help you get through all that wrapping Christmas Eve!

If you would like help creating a fabulous party of your own contact me about our event styling services. You can also purchase many items I use in my parties here.

My Oprah Moment!

I've got some super exciting news to share with you all.

Just this past Friday I styled and event for Oprah. Actually it was a Baby Shower she hosted for an expectant Melbourne Mum, Catherine Schrank at Bebe Online, a baby shop in South Yarra.

What an absolute honour it was to prepare this event for both Oprah and Catherine. The show will got to air sometime in January and I'll be sure to let you know the date and time when that information is available. I'll also be able to share photos of the entire event with you then, along with all the generous and talented people that helped make this event fabulous.

But until then this photo will have to do!

This is me, Oprah and Ruth Buzzard from Specklefarm

I'm off to Sydney tomorrow to see the taping of the show! Talk to you all on my return.

More fabulous products added

It's been a frantic week with two trips to Melbourne down and two more to go before the end of next week. Added to that school and kindy break ups and heaps of lovely new products arriving each day and you could say I've been kept on my toes all week.

I'd love to share with you the newest additions to our range.

First up are these sweet little compotes in an array of pretty colours.

They can used for so many things. Dessert, candy, sweets, a small posy of flowers or even place a plate on top for an instant cake stand. Available here.

Next up are two new cake stands with a sweet scalloped edge. The are both hand made here in Australia, as are the compotes above.

Round stands from here, Square stand available here.

As you know I love a little ruffle edge. So I was thrilled when I spotted these gorgeous plates.

And something festive and fun for the silly season. A set of two chalkboard Christmas Trees. Available here.
