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.

Thank you to My little Jedi for this perfect opportunity I enjoyed working with you on this little soiree and hope to work together again......Your Printable range is divine and you are truly a inspiration.

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


  1. This is gorgeous Niki! I love the vintage lace, glass balls and paper doilies backdrop is stunning xo

  2. Niki, I found you by way of your interview with Jane of "Lou and Jane @ Home Made Parties". You are a talented lady and I love the work you do. Congrats and much success!

  3. Hi candy soiree sisters! By golly your work is so pretty!! I'm your newest blog follower and have only been aware of dessert candy table styling maybe 5-6 months ago when I accidentally stumbled on a styled table whilst googling pictures of food (which is something I do often as it makes me so happy). I'm trying my hand at table styling myself for fun at the moment. I've yet to develop on my skills but working on a table is my calm and joy time. I'm so delighted to see you are from Melbourne as that is where I'm from, are there other party/ dessert table mad people from melb that you know of? I've come across lots of sydneysiders and others interstate, so I was thrilled to bits to bump into another melbournenite. Sorry for my rambling but I'm just so darn happy finding your blog and being inspired by it :). X thy.

  4. Where did you get the glass bottles from? I have been looking around and haven't found anything as cute as these. Everything I find either says 'Mad Cow Dairy' or looks like the wide mouthed Starbucks frappuccino bottles without the plastic wrapper.
