A Rainbow Party!

I love designing my party themes but I don't get to see them in action very often.
That's why I was so thrilled when I saw the photos of this awesome rainbow party put together for Kiara's 5th birthday, featuring my printable food labels!
The colours are vibrant, the desserts look yummy and the details are amazing! The images speak for themselves. What an honour to have had a small part in this amazing dessert table!

Ana's big first birthday party

Today I want to share with you a wonderful initiative I heard about during my holidays in Portugal.
Ana's mum writes in one of Portugal's most read blogs and she has discovered a way to use it to support great causes. When she was pregnant she met a little girl fighting leukemia and she was so moved by her story that she made it a personal goal to increase the number of bone marrow donors in the country.
This August Ana will celebrate her first birthday and her mum had this idea to turn that date into a huge public party. There will be food, drinks and entertainment offered by fantastic sponsors and everyone is invited! Her only request is for each guest to become a bone marrow donor on the spot. It's easy, it doesn't hurt and it can save lives!

So I want to invite you to "join" Ana's party. Talk to your GP, search online, find out how you can become a bone marrow donor in your country. Let's give Ana a first birthday she'll never forget!

E para quem me lê em Portugal, já ouviram falar na festa da Ana?
A mãe da Ana é a autora do blog Quadripolaridades e descobriu o potencial que a sua exposição na blogosfera poderia ter no apoio a grandes causas.
Em Agosto a Ana faz 1 ano e a mãe da Ana resolveu tornar o primeiro aniversário da filha numa mega festa solidária. Vão haver comes e bebes, animação e muita diversão! Todos estamos convidados para a festa, o único pedido que a mãe da Ana faz é que cada um leve um presente especial - inscrever-se como dador de medula óssea. No local vai estar uma equipa para fazer as recolhas e tratar de tudo. Inscrever-se como dador é fácil, não dói e pode salvar vidas!
Saibam mais, divulguem e juntem-se à festa aqui!

A very special owl baby shower

When I found out my sister was pregnant, the idea of her baby shower immediately came into my mind. Baby shower's are not a tradition in our home country (Portugal), but I now live in Australia and that was something I had to share with her.
A few months later, I came back home to a very pregnant sister :) and it was the perfect timing for the party! Her only request was an owl theme, to match the decoration of the baby's room.
We opted for a mix of sweets and finger-food, instead of a typical dessert table. We had a beautiful cake designed by Bolos e Bolinhos Atelier, matching the decor. Cupcakes, chocolate croissants, mini vol-au-vents and quiches were all home-made.
I loved the flower shaped fruit skewers on flower pots, for a fun touch!

This party was full of little details. Guests were given a pair of clothes pegs at the door, for the "Don't say baby" game and there was a framed sign explaining the rules of the game.
We asked guests to bring diapers instead of gifts, so we placed a big box at the entrance to put them.
My favourite details would have to be the bird cage we used for the diaper raffle and the striped straws with flags, customised with the baby's name and an owl illustration 

I had so much fun designing all the paper decoration for this party! The owl cake matched the decoration beautifully. And of course I had to make a diaper cake (my first one), it just wouldn't be a baby shower without it!
The banner with the baby's name was my sister's favourite detail, and she kept it as a keepsake.

I loved styling this party and I hope it was the first of many to come!
