Details for not too many Dollars!


I just wanted to share some details of the party we had for Georgiana last week-end.  Her party with her little friends we had on Saturday ..... I got these beautiful pink spotted cups and old-fashioned green-striped straws from "Details Details" in Brisbane and Siobhan was so helpful .... remember drinking milkshakes on the odd occasion for a treat and you had it in an icy cold silver metal milk shake tall cup all frothy and then you drank the magic liquid through one of these stripy straws .... how exciting our children can have that experience as well ....


I set the party table up with one of my linen cloths, a flower arrangement of peonies and roses ... green spotted napkins with pink stripe plates also from Details Details ...


The gorgeous footed vessels containing the yummy pink chocolate beans are from "Sharnel Dollar Designs" in Brisbane .... Sharnel also has the bunting for hire which is so pretty and creates an instant party feel for very little effort ...


Of course we had to have princess balloons and I got them locally .... the cute pink and aqua pom poms I just scattered around the ground for a whimsical fun look .... they came from "Donna Hay" in Sydney .....


The pom poms come flat and are easy to post anywhere and then you just make them up ... Georgiana helped with these and she loved it.....


Princess party bags of course .....


One for each of the princesses .... I wrote their names on the bags and it is lovely to see that something so simple makes them so happy ... a party bag with your name on it to take home full of exciting treats and sweets .....


Dominic and his friend, Reilly, were lifeguards on duty for pool watch .... they were free!!!!!! (Had to give them food though to maintain their strength...... )


I made Georgiana's favourite chocolate cake .... again (I had to make one Thursday night as well for her real birthday when we had family over ...) so I actually remembered it without having to look at the recipe book which never usually happens ...



Dusted with icing sugar and scattered with rose petals ....
The little girls had a wonderful time and one I know Georgiana will always remember .... friendship and love and just laughing, giggling and playing and celebrating life .....

What a lovely princess party! I love the straws and the gift bags...beyond fabulous! What is really special is that your daughter had a birthday party that was for her and that she will always remember. I absolutely sink my teeth into kids parties...isn't it nice to be able to bless them with memorable celebrations? The "lifeguards" are quite handsome and adorable too!

Gorgeous! I adore the pastel pink & green theme of the party. You outdid yourself Marie Antoinette!

GOOD MORNING MY PRECIOUS FRIEND! Oh, forgive my tardiness, but school and conferences have been wiping me out...even me, a power-packed explosion of energy in a skirt, on wheels of heels! But what a DROP DEAD GORGEOUS HOME YOU HAVE and all the dollar finds to embellish this gala are perfect. Dearest one, you have style not only of the decorating kind, but of heart. BRAVO and to call you my friend is a humbling honor. BISOUS! Anita
