Hi my name is Amy and I have an addiction to party planning.
Seriously - I have it BAD!! It's just too much fun finding the gorgeous, unique, fun and fabulous things that pull an event together!! I seriously wake up in the middle of the night with an idea or thought for a party favour or decoration and find any excuse to make a family BBQ an 'event'. LOL, I told you I had it bad!!
Now that you know this, you can imagine my delight when I have a 'real' excuse to go nuts planning details for a soiree so when my mum rang me a few weeks ago & told me she was asked to plan a 40th birthday party for a good friend and would I help her I was thrilled!!
The party brief from the birthday girl was: A Fairytale party. Family friendly (kids invited). Fun but romantic. Supper/cocktail food.
Colour Palette: Blues, white and silver with a bit of sparkle.
For weeks we have been making things, buying things, finding things and organising things including the above custom invitations (with matching printables) from Cake Ink - these gorgeous invites set the tone for the rest of the party! Other fabulous goodies we have ready to go are cake decorations from Hello Naomi, candy from Candy Soirees, accessories from Sweet Little Birdy, some custom bunting from Giggleberry Creations of course and a whole lot more!!
The party has finally rolled around and is on this Saturday evening! Although I won't actually be there I can't wait for the day!! Above is a little sneak peak at some of the details we have pulled together - I can't wait to share every little detail as soon as we get photos back but most importantly I hope the birthday girl LOVES what we have planned.
