Candy soirees' Party of the Year.....Vintage tea bithday party

Candy soirees was recently asked to put together a dessert table for a Melbourne customer wanting to celebrate her precious daughters 2nd birthday party........the brief was anything Vintage and High Tea as mum was getting together with a handful of her close friends and their children to enjoy an afternoon of birthday celebrations and decadent cakes for all to indulge in.....so the planning began.

We decided to feature My little Jedi's new Vintage Chic Printable range which tied in perfectly with this theme and the lovely Vesna for MLJ {Sydney} accepted my proposal to work on this project together. My Little Jedi has a love of all things girly, vintage and pretty and her inspiration is commendable....so collaborating with Vesna was an absolute pleasure and together we managed to share the ideas and concept to this sweet little soiree. I have been looking for the perfect opportunity to work with My Little Jedi for quite some time.... as I have been inspired by Vesna for so long now and love her passion for Vintage soirees. Thank you Vesna for giving candy soirees the pleasurable opportunity to work with you ...you have an amazing talent and this was the perfect project to work on with you....I enjoyed  immensely.

The little party was set in a beautiful English garden style setting and the table was dressed with a white table cloth and pink tulle over lay. A venetian mirror was featured leaning against a white wicker chair for the little girls to play dress ups and enjoy some girly fun.

This little soiree has definitely been the party of the year (2010) for candy soirees.

A little Christmas message from candy soirees....

Put your problems on probation

Run your troubles off the track,

Throw your worries out the window

Get the monkeys off your back.

Silence all your inner critics

With your conscience make amends,

And allow yourself some happiness

It's Christmas time again!

Call a truce with those who bother you

Let all the fighting cease,

Give your differences a breather

And declare a time of peace,

Don't let angry feelings taint

The precious time you have to spend,

And allow yourself some happiness

It's Christmas time again!

Like some cool refreshing water

Or a gentle summer breeze,

Like a fresh bouquet of flowers

Or the smell of autumn leaves,

It's a banquet for the spirit

Filled with family, food and friends,

So allow yourself some happiness

It's Christmas time again!

Enjoy the festive season......be merry and enjoy your time together.... xxxxx

Delicious m&m party...

Today's party feature is our very own m&m party designed and put together for a father and daughter birthday. Michael and Madelaine.....Dad is celebrating his milestone 40th birthday and little Princess Maddie turned 2. As they share the same initials we decided on a cute and fun m&m party to help these two celebrate their special day. Happy birthday Michael and Maddie, hope the day if filled with lots of fun and yummy candy.

The table was filled with a selection of m&m flavours for all to enjoy, and a simple white table cloth was decorated with strands of colourful and textured ribbons.

Personalised m&m candy jar labels designed by candy soirees

colourful and delicious m&m cupcakes

Large colourful balloons in the standard m&m colours were arranged behind the table as a feature.

mini yummy jelly cups...all colour co ordinated to match the colour scheme.

This was such a fun party to set up, and I just love that Dad celebrated his 40th with his little princess.
