Unicorn Party- Free Printable

10/02/2017 4:57 PM

 

My niece Azaria has always really loved unicorns. When she was around 3 years old I vividly remember her playing by the door on the old wooden steps of my sisters country cottage with her unicorn toys. She would line them all up in the most perfect row. Next she would take each one in her little hands and brush their rainbow hair ever so carefully. The gentle and kind way she played with her unicorns was very different from the way she played with her pet cat Tigrus... Tigrus could often be seen trying to escape a giant bear hug from little Azaria.

With this happy memory in mind I created the “Pretty Unicorn” Invitation. This invite is for all the sparkling unicorn lovers, magical little fairies and princesses out there who are dreaming of a enchanted birthday celebration.



And just to make it a little easier for all the parents planning these magical affairs I have also created a print at home party game which can be downloaded below.

This gorgeous “Pin the Horn on the Unicorn” print out will add an extra little bit of fun to any sparkly unicorn or princess themed party. It could also be a crafty idea to have your child decorate all the horns with pretty diamantes or glitter before the party so each guest has a unique horn to pin on the poster.

Click here to download your free printable and here to download your unicorn horns, then head to your local printing shop to have it printed up for the special party!

All of the Paper Divas would absolutely love to see the poster in action so please share the happy memories to our Facebook or Instagram pages. Don’t forget to tag with  #WeArePaperDivas because there will be some gift vouchers up for grabs in the very near future!

With only a few weeks until Christmas we know busy mums and dads will be rushing about organising the traditional feast for Christmas lunch. And we all know any good feast requires an amazing dessert to finish the food affair!

We’ve been lusting over decadent pavlovas and Moorish Christmas tree treats and I can confidently say our mouths are watering!

 

 

Did somebody say Marshmallow and Funfetti?? Yes they did! This delightful recipe is featured on the Camille Styles Blog and features a step by step photo journey of just how to create these delicious little treats.

A good Aussie Christmas almost always features a pavlova but this unique recipe from Artful Desperado turns the traditional recipe on it’s head. You will be the talk of the table with this amazing Chocolate Meringue cake. Topped with fresh seasonal cherries + berries you won’t be able to eat it quick enough.

Wow! This Gingerbread featured on the Aww Sam blog is so bright we almost need our sunglasses. This would be such a fun little project to make with any little helpers you have about the place. Little tiny hands would be perfect for adding the colourful decorative features.

REAL Wild One Party!

25/10/2016 3:58 PM

Let the wild rumpus start!!

Wild One parties have become a popular theme trending for first birthday parties. Due to demand from creative parents hosting such savage celebrations, we have created a large range of designs especially for the occasion. You can read about our latest invitations designed especially for a Wild One party on our previous blog.

Our good friends over at Sugar and Spice Events took the creativity one step further by creating the cutest Wild One-themed party for one of their own tribe, Archer. Inspired by his name, our designers helped Creative Director – Decinda MacDonald, create her own custom invitation to set the tone for the day. The invitation featured feathers and archer arrows, a cheeky little fox, golden tribal patterns and mint accents:

The experts in party styling went all-out to set the scene for a bespoke and lush setting that all the fierce little creatures could run rampant in! Imaginations ran truly wild as the backdrop for the party included so many intricate details and impressive coordination.

Be brave little Archer... it‘s time for an adventure!

Nestled down by the water, this outdoors event was a truly magical scene complete with feathers, arrows, ferns, garlands and tipi-inspired centerpieces. The floral arrangements by Gold Coasters, B Sweet Flowers added a dramatic sense of going-bush and sweet little citronella candles doubled as both cute and practical to keep the mossies at bay!

As the sun shone down, guests could embrace the cozy ambience framed by a light and airy backdrop of draped blues, greens and white tones. Natural, earthy ottomans encouraged the party goers to kick off their shoes and be at one with nature as they picked away at some cute fruit kebabs and cupcakes complete with feather arrow details.

As a highlight, guests were treated to a feast of epic proportions with one of the most amazing tipi cakes that‘s ever been made! Archer‘s eyes sparkled with delight at all the cute little details like the glittery feather garland backdrop, and hints of gold and glitter in the table setting and loot bags.

Life in Bloom Photography were there to capture the day so that Archer‘s busy and talented family could sit back, relax and enjoy being in the moment of this wild and rumpus scene!

We can‘t wait to see what type of party is thought-up for Archer's second birthday party!

Minimalist Christmas Charm

13/10/2016 5:09 PM

 

Gorgeous images of presents wrapped in delicate recycled paper and simply decorated Christmas trees have been appearing in our news feeds of late and it got us thinking about the festive season (After all its only 10 weeks away!!) There is so much fuss at Christmas time; The rush to get the tree up, buy the fancy gold wrapping paper, organise a grand feast and buy a multitude of pressies.

But what if a less is more approach was taken? Often beauty is in the most simple of things.

 

 This Christmas tree featured on Homey Oh My is just so pretty. The Star ornaments are a  DIY made from Clay! We love the idea of making your own Special Christmas decorations. Team your tree with some simple black, white and grey gift wrapping and your on the path to a beautiful minimalist look.

Speaking of minimalist.. Would you ditch the tree all together?? This DIY tree from Almost Perfect is a fun modern idea for any small space or lover of the less is more ethos.

 

 We just love this Christmas styling from The Merry Thought. The idea of a Christmas tree with no decorations might scare some but if you love the idea of a simple, stress free and no mess Christmas this could be right down your alley. Elements from the natural world always give a wonderful feeling and this arrangement leaves us feeling very grounded.

A neutral colour palette and soft finishings could be all the fuss you need to make this Christmas special. We have used this minimalist style to create our beautiful new range of Christmas invites. Simple type on beautiful white card and a touch of copper shine.

 

O the Simplicity of it all.

Halloween Treats

27/09/2016 3:37 PM

It’s nearly Halloween. This means it’s time dig deep into the costume box for your most frightening outfit... or the linen cupboard for a ghostly looking sheet if your costume ideas are anything like mine. Halloween is so much fun, and it is a frighteningly good excuse to throw a party.

All good parties need delicious food... So this week we hope to wake your taste buds from the dead with a display of creative Halloween Treats. From horrifyingly healthy treats, to devilish desserts we take a sneak at some spooky secrets to making the food table just as freaky as your costume.

 

If it is a kids party you are organising there are plenty of spooky food creations to keep the kids frightened. Try decorating mini pizzas with cut olives to look like creepy spiders or turn a simple cupcake into a witches hat with a waffle cone and some icing.

 

 

Keep in mind Halloween doesn’t have to be all about sugary treats and mountains of lollies. There are some really clever ways to make spooky Halloween goodies from natural and healthy ingredients! Try making mini pumpkins from mandarins and celery stalks, or some chattery teeth from apples and sunflower seeds.

 

 
While healthy is nice... a little Halloween indulgence never hurt anyone!  Think dripping poison (not really poison) toffee apples, and blood splattered cookies. We also love these rich chocolate bat wing treats which are so easy to create with a packet of Oreos! 

 

Our Adults only Halloween goodies are spooktacular! Create indulgent delicious blood red cocktails for the vampires in the room and decadent rich dark chocolate shards. These are just too special to give to the little goblins!

You will be the talk of the evening with these Halloween goodies and your guests will be dying to devour these treats, so time to get cooking! Enjoy!

CAPTURING THEIR FIRST BIRTHDAY!

30/08/2016 2:37 PM

This week we are so excited to release our newest, most foxy, wild one invite to date! It’s got just the right amount of cute teamed with fun patterns, arrows, feathers and a splash of glitter. Because lets face it, everything (Yes EVERYTHING) is better with glitter.

Designing this invite got us thinking about all the cute little babies out there having there very first birthdays! We got lost on Pinterest, oooohh'd and ahhhh'd over all the cute party ideas and thought about eating all the amazing birthday cakes... There were so many, seriously – so, so many! We're talking chocolate, caramel, pink fairy floss, sprinkles, white chocolate, icing....

Okay whoops... We're getting a little distracted here!

It’s so very special watching your baby grow and the first year will be full of wonder and amazement as your watch your little one learn and adapt to their new place in the world. Of course there will be challenging moments and nights of very little sleep... but this will all be forgotten in the bursts of overwhelming happiness and immense joy as you fall more and more in love with your beautiful little baby.

With all this in mind the first birthday is definitely a milestone that needs to be celebrated and captured in just the right way! With only a little bit of effort you can throw a gorgeous party and inspire some beautiful photo opportunities to capture the special day.

So here are our 3 favorite ideas for making the first birthday a memorable occasion.

1. Bake two cakes! One for the guests and one for a cute photoshoot.

Get your hands on a delicious cake and cover it in icing, chocolate, colourful decorations and sparkley gold edible glitter! And then leave it for your upcoming one year old to squish between their little fingers, throw through the air and devour as they please. You will have a really big mess, but you will also have the cutest pictures! Just make sure you have the camera ready so you don’t miss anything. If you take these photos about 1-2 months before their birthday then you can use the photos on the invitations to their first ever birthday party!

2. Balloons are such inexpensive & impressive props!

One of our favorite ideas is to set up an old basket outside in the sunshine and tie a huge bunch of helium balloons to the handles. Cut out a bright big number one for the front of the basket and place your Wild One inside! This will look magical in photos... and 20 years down the track it will be great to pull out for their 21st invite!!

3. Buy oversized ‘ONE’ letters.

Take a series of photographs with each letter. This will be great visual when looking back in later times, and will make for the sweetest scrapbook page in their baby book. Also If you keep the letters you will have a great way of showing your child just how much they have grown each year!
