This very buggy custom design was for the cutest, most delightful and happy little 7 year old Buggy speci-MAN I know! The beautiful son on Miss Blissfully Sweet.

BensBugsBLOGDHere is a little of what Jacki has to say about this awesome party!

My Ben is gentle and kind and also willing to try just about anything. Last year, he showed an interest in reptiles at a local shop and his next party theme was born. He was thrilled to have a bigs and reptiles party and this was to be his first friend’s only party! Ben is my boy who asks for nothing, is happy with anything and really is the sweetest and kindest soul there is.

I wanted to make him a special party, one that he would remember for a long time! A party where his very special friends would come and help him celebrate and that together they would have fun and learn some things too!

So my first person to call was my crafty BFF Nicole of Pretty and Print. Nicole knows me as well as anyone and as soon as I told her Bugs and Reptiles, she was as excited as I. All the printables were focal pieces for the party and brought it all together so perfectly!




The amazing team at Feature Creatures came to our party with their menagerie of creatures and the buggy fun began! The kids were excited, avidly learning new animal facts and ecstatic to be handling all the perfect little animals.

After that the kids ate a feast to prepare themselves for lots of buggy adventures! We had games and activities that the kids got to dig and bang and build and all the results they got to take home with them. 

It truly was a memorable day full of 7 year old fun and laughter. Memories were made!

MSC Princess Blog 1

This dessert table was for gorgeous little Sienna’s first birthday. First birthdays are so special and Sienna’s mother wanted something really ‘wow’ for her baby girl. She requested pink and gold with glitter and left the rest to me. I was really excited to have so much freedom theming and styling this table and especially love this colour scheme. Pink and gold are a match made in heaven and glitter is all the rage right now. The theme was set a Royal Princess dessert table which was perfect because Sienna’s parents call their baby girl their ‘Princess’. My Sweet Celebration went all out making a custom pink tulle and glitter double frilled tableskirt with matching riser along with glitter gold drapping to suit the royal affair. Gold cake stands were a must. For the backdrop I envisaged a large princess carriage and entrusted the talented Nicole from 
Pretty and Print who always shares by vision and designs the most beautiful printables. I LOVED the backdrop which included an ‘S’ and a really royal look. The two-tiered cake was made by my favourite Mel from Paper and Stringwho never ceases to amaze me. I asked for gold glitter and got it!! I wanted a tall double tier cake to make the table something special. Mel also made the most adorable cupcakes with royal trimmings along with triple glittered sugar cookies and princess cake pops with golden crowns. The remainder of the sweets which included gold glitter macarons, traditional Italian cannoli with a shimmer of gold, pink profiteroles and Strawberry mousse served in crystal were made with love by My Sweet Celebration. The flowers also by My Sweet Celebration were my favourite roses and there were plenty!! The photos which are truly beautiful are by Matthew Gianoulis Photography who did a brilliant job of capturing the beauty of the table. Thanks again to Sienna’s lovely mother Jess for trusting me. I hope you enjoy the photos xx

Shabby, Chic & some Kisses for Clara

| Uncategorized

It was a pleasure to recently design a complete custom set of printables for my customer Lorraine from Kisses for Clara in Sydney for her daughter 1st Birthday. Lorraine styled such a beautiful day for Clara and the each little detail is just beautiful.


I could not wait to start planning my daughter’s 1st birthday party… I love girly, timeless and vintage styling so I was set on her Shabby Chic theme and once I created an inspiration board, I was so excited for her special day.

The colours I chose where soft pink, green and turquoise and the party was styled with these colours in mind. 

The desserts where set up on French Provincial furniture and surrounded a stunning two tier hand painted cake. The mini desserts featured mini raspberry cheesecake pots, triple chocolate mousse pots, macarons displayed in a weathered jewellery box, cupcakes featuring beautiful handmade flowers and bows, handmade floral cookies on a stick, floral cake pops and lots more. 

I wanted to create a pretty, girly and timeless party with lots of pretty features used throughout the styling and desserts.

| Boys Party

The lovely Amanda from Red Wagon Events styled this gorgeous Hot Air Balloon 1st Birthday Celebration for Paris using our Up Up & Away Printables.

Not long back I styled a Hot Air Balloon inspired party for a lovely little boy named Paris. His lovely and easy going mum knew she wanted a soft boy like celebration with traditional baby blues and reds as the main colours and so the theme of a hot air balloon party was set. After all time does just fly!

It was an intimate celebration for their closest family and friends but delicious desserts from Sweet Empire and Cake-a-Lishious were over flowing.
