We're now stocking oh-so-pretty gold foil party straws in the shop, and apart from their obvious function as drink straws, they also make oh-so-pretty geometric decorations for our party tables, party backdrops or as hanging decor to embellish any party or home space.
And since wedding season is here, I decided to craft a few simple decor pieces to show you how versatile they are as a party prop! ;)

Mildly entertaining true story: I planned to shoot this Cherry Blossom Cocktail recipe with the beautiful cherry flowers we have in our cherry trees. But when it came to the shoot day, the blossom were all washed out by the rain! Shock horror!
But I soon spotted that our peach trees were in fact blossoming (and looked pretty similar to the cherry ones..) and so decided to Google it, and lo and behold; it turns out they are just as edible as cherry blossom. Phew!

Spring is synonymous with flowers, but also with the humble bumble bee.
And it's so heartbreaking to read everywhere that bees are on the verge of extinction :(
But if it's up to us party lovers, bee themed parties and events are here to stay, right?!
We ♥ the bumble bees 'round here and this sweet theme is perfect for Spring weddings, showers, luncheons and birthdays of any age!

As part of my Valentine's Dinner party menu that I shared in my previous post (here); I'm serving pink champagne jello with red berries and cream.
Something about jello that evokes 'fun', don't you think? Maybe it's because it's a dessert we associate with kids, and therefore takes us back to our childhood days.
But for a grown-up update on this favorite classic, I added pink champagne and red berries. Which makes a super tasty, not to mention pretty in pink dessert for Valentine's Day! :)

Honeycomb balls are the new hot trend gracing the pages of the party blogs.
You just can't miss them!
Mainly because you can use them in your party or styling decor to achieve the "wow factor" without much effort or cost.
Sure, they make great hanging decorations and garlands for birthdays, weddings, home decor...but today, 'funky' and 'unexpected' is the name of the party game.
And here are my top favs to help inspire your next shindig!

I wish Pinterest was around when I got married.
The amount of fun DIY inspiration and creative ideas...oh my!
No matter how little or how much you're actually doing yourself, nothing beats getting stuck in, hands on. If nothing else, simply to have a keepsake or fun memory of something made with love, by you!
And being able to say in years to come - "Oh this?! I made it!" ;)

I grew up on smoothies. My mom used to create the most weird and wonderful concoctions of fruit and veg, all blended up into a practical and nutritious drink/snack.
Some flavors I loved, and some I hate to this day (hello trauma of beetroot!), but now find myself passing down my love of smoothies to my kids.
And smoothie bowls are not only the latest healthy rage around, but I found it to be a super FUN and healthy snack for kids, as well as a lazy (but nutritious) breakfast option for busy gals ;)
Major bonus points that they look totally Instagram worthy (wink) AND are super good for you!

Fiestas are not only reserved for Cinco de Mayo.
I personally, would have a fiesta any day of the week. Tacos, pinatas, Margaritas....the lot!
So when my friend Gillian sent over her stunning party photos with a fiesta theme and get this, PINATA COOKIES (!!); I actually did a little dance.
It's a softer take on the usually bright Mexican inspired theme. It has pastel colors and warm summer hues with a stunning watercolor cake, and I reckon it would be PERFECT for a seasonal wedding, bridal shower, dinner party or girly birthday!
