Donut Walls For Every Occasion

17/04/2018 2:47 PM

 

CAKES ARE PRETTY... BUT DONUTS ARE BETTER

 

I've been noticing an abundance of donuts popping up on the Paper Divas Instagram feed lately. They all look so delicious and they're making my mid-morning rice cake look like a piece of cardboard!! Seriously if you haven't already, pop over and check out #weddingdonuts and you will be left in awe.

So what is the deal with all these Donuts? Weddings, Bridal and Baby Showers, Engagements, Kids and Adult parties - it seems no party is complete without at least one wall devoted to donuts. It's the latest trend and it will make any party instantly awesome.

Donut walls are super easy to set up and let's face it... everyone loves donuts - donut they!? Think affordability, ease of serving, portion control and variety! So many flavours and frosting choices... its the perfect alternative to a boring fruit cake!

BRIDAL SHOWER DONUT WALL

 

This Tropical and Festive Bridal Shower featured on Green Wedding Shoes is so lust worthy. A simple pastel pink board filled with white frosted Donuts teamed with gold balloons, tassles and fresh florals. This is the perfect backdrop for an afternoon tea with all your best friends.

 

BIRTHDAY PARTY DONUT WALL

 

O Happy Days have created this bright colour wheel of donuts using a pegboard, some bright coloured paint and matching frosting. This would be the talk of any party, and while you may not have the amazing stylists and photographers at O Happy Days to set it up for you, I bet if you follow their guide and use your own creativity your party will be featured on all of your friends Insta stories for days!

WEDDING DONUT WALL

 

We just couldnt go past this gorgeous pic of Ashley and Jacob featured on Le Jardin Weddings. A stunning mismatched wall of donuts would beat any photobooth wall! Just add greenery!

 

KIDS PARTY DONUT WALL

 

We adore this Donut display featured on Lifes Little Celebrations. This modern, playful and unique setting would also be ideal for a baby shower or Hens party! The Silver, grey and black is such a great colour combination it would suit so many occasions.

 

Q&A with a wedding planner

13/04/2018 11:10 AM

 

 

The highly-anticipated excitement of planning your dream wedding day, can quickly be over-shadowed by overwhelm and anxiety once you realise just how many decisions you need to make! If you're feeling stressed by the prospect of choosing the right venue, flowers, photographer and even if you need to send Save the Date cards, then why not consider engaging with a Wedding Planner! We had a quick 5-minute chat with local Gold Coast wedding consultant & planner Angela from WOMAN and WIFE Weddings to get a feel for her approach, and how she can truly make your wedding day unique. Her company specialise in same-sex weddings, and she has a wealth of knowledge on the local wedding industry, all the way from Byron Bay to Noosa Heads!

.....

Angela, thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge & expertise with us. Can you first explain a bit about your business & what made you decide to become a personal wedding consultant and planner?
I myself, Angela, can now marry my Beyonce Kelly this year and share the celebration of  love & commitment we have for each other with all of our children, family and friends. This has inspired me to share the journey with others and to be a part of such a significant and memorable event.
 
At last YES we can marry the same sex and all LOVE can be accepted and be treated the same with a commitment to marriage. As an experienced and committed Consultant and Planner I have passion and local expertise in event co-ordination ensuring that everything my couples have envisioned, comes together perfectly on their special day. I love getting to know my couples, with many of them becoming friends and providing a day they will truly never forget.
 
 

 

 

What makes your approach to wedding planning different to other vendors?
WOMAN and WIFE draw on experience in project management as well as a strong network of amazing suppliers in the business. We work closely alongside you and our recommended chosen suppliers, leading up to and on the day of your wedding. We want to create a day as amazing and individual as the couple themselves and our level of commitment can assure you peace of mind and exciting journey to the main event.
 
We have a package that provides you with a 'one stop shop' consultation specialist for the first step of your planning process. Over an informal chat together, we can create the perfect vision of your special day. I will then contact our highly recommended service providers that we work closely with and coordinate the initial proposals/pricing for you. This will allow you to begin the decision making process a little less hassle free.

Alternatively, you've booked a few of the big things; venue and caterer for example, but you need help with all the other suppliers and advice on how to tie it all together. We can arrange a meeting to find out exactly where you're up to and where you need the help. From here we will take over the responsibility of coordinating initial proposals/pricing and present them to you.

 

 

Do you offer different types of packages that are tailor made to individual needs and budgets?
We can be that one point of contact to oversee and direct proceedings to make sure everything you have dreamt is set up exactly as you envisioned, without having to make it happen yourself. We offer different levels to suit every couple, including the One Stop Shop, Wedding Day PA, and the Set Up and Pack Down Package. 
 
Our little black book of contacts include; Venues, Celebrants, Outfits, Photography/Videography, Florists, Hair & Make-Up, Jewellers, Wedding cake, Entertainment, Wedding Invitations and Matching Stationery as well as Transport.
 
We aim to take care of all or part of your wedding depending on your needs. We tailor our services to your requirements ensuring you have peace of mind and confidence that you will have exactly the wedding day you had in mind – without the stress and extreme demands involved in the organisation.
 


 
 
We know that your business specialses in same-sex marriage - how has this recent law change in Australia affected the landscape for the wedding industry?
WOMAN and WIFE understand that each couple is different. Some have dreamt of this day since they could remember. For others it has just become a reality. Either way we all want our day to be memorable.
 
And finally, tell us a bit about where you live & why you think that people will love to get married there!
I live in Palm Beach QLD on the border of NSW near the accessible Gold Coast airport. Easy access for guests and plenty of accommodation to choose from and above all pretty much guaranteed amazing weather for your special day. With various venues to offer for every taste in my portfolio to make your dream a reality.
 
.....
 
Thank you for your valuable insights & advice Angela! Keen to know more, or would you like to become a vendor? Contact WOMAN and WIFE weddings directly on their Facebook page or website.

Will You Be My Bridesmaid

22/01/2018 3:40 PM

 
Bridesmaids are our sisters, our sisters to be and our friends who are like sisters. They are the beautiful souls who we have shared the ups and downs of life with. They are the women who have been there for us when times have been dark or the road has taken an unexpected turn. They are the ones who have been with us just living, laughing and simply enjoying the blessings of life.

Bridesmaids are our wedding safe guard making sure we don’t make hideous flower choices or take the wedding planning so serious we fall into a heap. Bridesmaids are the beautiful women who will keep us sane in times of wedding stress and remind us to smile when the cake accidently falls of the bench the night before the wedding.

And most importantly our Bridesmaids are the beautiful women who will stand next to us as we marry the person of our dreams.

So these beautiful ladies are pretty special to us... and I think it's safe to say we need to ask them the big question in the most special way.  The beautiful collection of ideas below will help you decide on the best way to ask your special girls to be your Bridesmaids!

 

SCROLL DOWN FOR 4 FREE BRIDESMAID PRINTABLE CARDS!

 

 

There is something so lovely about receiving a beautiful package of goodies. This lovely box is from The Bridal Box Co and we think it is the perfect way to ask your best girls to be your Bridemaids. This gift box is not only a lovely gesture but will be super handy on your wedding day! And the sneaky bottle of Champagne will be just what is needed to calm those wedding day nerves.

 

 

 

We connect with our friends in so many ways, whether it be double tapping a pic on Instagram or liking a post on facebook, sending a snap chat or a quick txt. But it is becoming less and less common for us to write a letter to each other! This is why it is such a thoughtful gift to receive a hand written note. One that your lovely ladies will be sure to keep for a very long time!

 

Why not set up a beautiful lunch by the sea. Gather some old palettes, drape in a lovely linen or lace table cloth, add a beautiful bunch of stunning flowers and top with the yummiest cheese platter you've ever created! Use throw cushions as seats and place it all on a lovely big picnic rug! Just add your lovely Bridesmaids and you have set the stage for a beautiful and memorable location to ask your lovely ladies the big question!

 

We love these pretty gifts from Fox Blossom Co. So delicately packaged with the sweetest little message. These will surely win the hearts of your bridemaids and they will be so pleased to wear these beautiful jewels down the isle.

SIMPLE online wedding gift registry

16/08/2017 10:32 AM

 

In the run up to your wedding, creating a gift registry is one of the many things that you’ll want to think about. Perhaps you are so focused on the big day itself that you haven’t even considered the gifts, but all of your guests want to honour you with a little something to celebrate this huge milestone in your life.

Traditional wedding registries are quickly becoming a thing of the past. With the average couple getting married much later on in life, they have often already lived together and have no need for the typical wedding gifts that would simply end up gathering dust in a cupboard. Plus, wedding guests don't have time to visit department stores to choose a gift!

We have seen a huge increase in people who are directing their guests to their online registry. Online cash registries have provided a perfect solution to this, allowing guests to contribute to your gift list online and allowing couples to receive the cash equivalent so that they can spend it on anything they want. Here in Australia, there are a few different options available to future brides and grooms, we just love Zankyou, and here's why!

 

 

(Picture this: No boxed gifts at your wedding day!!)

 

Guests chip in towards that crazy skydive you're planning on your honeymoon...

Many modern day couples have already established a home with all of the objects that they could ever need, so they really don’t want more toasters and silverware. Besides, your guests want you to spend their money on something that you really want; they don’t want to waste their money on something you’ll never use. Zankyou is a cash only registry, meaning that you will never receive a physical gift, but instead you’ll receive 100% of the money that your guests have contributed and you can spend it on absolutely anything you want.

And the best bit, you can itemise your registry so that your guests know specifically what they are contributing towards (i.e. a cruise in the Mediterranean, accommodation in Paris or perhaps something really crazy like skydiving in the Maldives!).Your guests will be thrilled for you to use their contribution for something that really makes you happy!

 

Cousins over in Italy can contribute too!

As a result of the increasing number of marriages between people of different nationalities, wedding guests nowadays come from all over the world. Zankyou is bilingual and guests can choose to contribute in 11 different currencies (which also avoids more pesky fees!).

 

Even Great Aunt Dorris can figure it out...

Who has time to fluff around building a website, checking a wedding-only email address or managing phonecalls from your Great Aunt Dorris who wants to check on what colour linen tablecloth to buy you?!

You can create your registry in just a few clicks and if you’re really pressed for time, you can even use one a ready-made gift registries which contain gifts that have been selected according to four different lifestyle options: Traditional, Modern, Design, Experience.

Save everyone time and stress by pointing them to what you really want via the free app of your online registry! And if Great Aunt Dorris needs to brush up on her computer skills, Zankyou will accept contributions over the phone! Phew, crisis overted...

(Zankyou transfer the full cash equivalent of the gifts received to the PayPal account of your choice, with no waiting around until after the wedding!)

 

 

 

Put your own creative flair into it!

You can edit the design, colours, texts and images to reflect your personality and your taste with a Zankyou registry. You also get to choose the name and personal web address too. This will be handy to print onto your wishing well cards when you send out your wedding invitations.

Also as another special touch, Zankyou lets your guests write their own special message at the time of contributing and then they will print them off individually onto beautiful cards and post them to you after your wedding!

 

You don't get stung with large fees

Reading the fine print is not the most exciting part of setting up your registry - but trust us you don't want to get lumped with too many fees! Zankyou is transparent about it's rates, which are the lowest on the market. What’s more, many companies charge both you and your guests. With their service, you can choose whether you or your guests cover the fees, so if you choose the second option Zankyou’s services will be completely free for you!

(They charge 2.95% of the total contribution made per guest with a 99¢ transaction fee and that’s it. There is no other costs and they don’t even charge any type of commission for transfers to your PayPal account).

 

We understand that the build up to your wedding can be hectic and stressful, so make it one step simpler by setting up an online registry! Easy for you, and your guests contribute from the comfort of their own home in their PJs!! Ahh so simple!

MULBERRY HUES + MOODY PURPLES

One of this seasons most gorgeous wedding trends is dreamy mulberry hues and deep purples. These moody tones teamed with soft muted greys and creams are simply divine. Our Mulberry Wedding Invitations have been designed perfectly to suit this colour palette and will make such a bold statement when they arrive in your guest's mail box. Especially in our stunning matt black envelopes!

We just adore this gorgeous floral boquet found via Pinterest and this absolutley divine seasonal cake featured on Grace Loves Lace. They seem like the perfect match for our Mulberry Wedding Invite.

 

TURQUOISE + OCEAN BLUES

A bold colour pallette of ocean tones, bright turquoise and deep sapphire blues is ideal for a summer wedding.

We love how a delicate touch of blue adds a summer glow to the images below, mismatched bridesmaid dresses in soft dusty blues are so lust worthy! A simple touch of blue to a rose bouquet is also such a lovely statment.

This dreamy ocean watercolour theme has inspired the design of our Turquoise Wedding invitations. Perfect for a summer beach inspired wedding.

INDIGO, EMERALD + SOFT GOLD

Emerald, washed indigo, a touch of gold and dusty dreamy blues will add a whimsical winter vibe to your wedding day.

This theme has inspired our Indigo Gold Wedding Invitation.

Between all the ‘Divas’ here in the office, we’ve attended, planned and hosted our fair share of Baby Showers! Hence, baby chit-chat is a common topic in the office, and our Baby Shower invites, thank you cards and bonbonniere gift tags are some of the most popular products on our entire website!

The popularity of Baby Showers means that we are always talking to real-life customers planning showers for their sisters, friends, daughters, or for themselves. We see first-hand how planning an event for a crowd (big or small) can become stressful as all the little details mount up.

As we’re all self-professed experts in the matter, we decided to get together and compile a list of our Words of Wisdom for a 10 Step Guide on How to Host a Stress-Free Baby Shower.

Please leave your comments at the bottom with more advice to anyone planning a Baby Shower!

 

(Image: Hooray Mag)



1) Pick a host
Traditionally speaking, if you’re a first-time mum, a girlfriend or semi-distant relation (i.e. cousin) will host your first Baby Shower. Traditional etiquitte indicates that it is felt that if a mum or a sister were to host your first baby shower, they are seen to be soliciting gifts. Personally we find this to be a fairly old-fashioned approach, and don’t see many modern Australian women who worry too much about this etiquitte, as mums and sisters are often so proud to host such a celebration!

The task at hand here is to create a stress-free celebration. Choose someone close to you who understands your style and taste, your values and is organised!! Set your intentions with your family (or anyone who may be offended if they are not asked to host your celebration) that your last few months of pregnancy will be precious times, and you want to organise a celebration which will run smoothly, be uncomplicated, and at the very least – as stress-free as possible!


2) Write a Guest List
With regards to how may people to invite, everyone is different. Intimate high teas with a handful or ladies, or larger luncheons with the as many as you can squeeze into your venue! Traditionally most prefer a women-only event, while it’s becoming incresingly popular to hold co-ed baby showers like Baby-Q’s, which may also include children at your shower!

3) Pick your theme with the help of Pinterest!
Once you’ve chosen your host/s, it’s time to start talking about how you might envision your celebration to be. Perhaps you’re happy for it all to be a surprise and let your host plan the whole thing! Or maybe you’ve seen some great inspiration and ideas floating around the web that you gave a few ideas of how your own celebration might come together! Either way, what better way than to share ideas together visually through Pinterest.

See some of our fave ideas on our own Pinterest board here.

Once you’ve settled on a general theme, location and appraoch then it’s time to start getting down to the nitty gritty...


4) Set a date at least 4-5 weeks in advance
If you’re having a baby, chances are a huge portion of your friends and family will already be busy mums who have kids and commitments. This means that settling on a date nice and early will erradicate SO much stress for your guests too! So try to pick your date nice and early to avoid disappointing anyone who already has commitments.

It’s fair to say that in most cases, you’ve been aware of your impending arrival for some time, so getting in early with your loved ones is the best way of ensuring that your Baby Shower is not a rushed affair that is too close to your due date!

Traditionally speaking Baby Showers are hosted in the 4-6 weeks prior to your due date. Usually this means that maternity leave will be about to begin, and you’re busy setting up your home for the imminent arrival of your new little life.

 

(Image: Facil y sencillio)


5) Create a gift registry
Get what you actually want and need! Guests love to know what you want, it makes life easier for them, and you can receive what you actually want! A really popular trend is to ask for a book instead of a card. Lots of our customers personalise this sweet little message onto a matching wishing well card:

Books for Baby
A small request and we hope it's not hard,
Please bring a book instead of a card.

It doesn't matter if it's well-loved or brand new,
Either way your book will remind the baby of you.

Write a sweet message on the inside cover
And your words can be cherished over and over.


6) Send out Invitations (at least 3 weeks in advance)
Once you set your guest list has been set you can assume the size that the celebration will be which may define if you choose to do it in a private space, or book a table for High Tea somewhere public.

Be sure to include all the most important information (who the celebration is for, date, time, place) and give your guests a date to RSVP by so that you and the host have time to organise catering, drinks. venue bookings, games etc!)

Being clear with your intentions on your invitations will save you time and hassle answering questions i.e. is it co-ed? Are babies/children allowed? What shall I wear? What gift would you like?

Oh, and did I mention that we have you more than covered when it comes to Baby Shower Invitations!!

7) Plan your catering with food & drink
Now that you have some RSVPs rolling in, it’s time to lock in your catering. As mentioned High Teas are a stress-free option whereby guests can pay per head, or you can DIY your own High Tea. Will you be offering alcohol, and if so, can guests BYO? Or would a selection of teas and coffee be suffice? Another important consideration is to pre-empt that some of your guests may have food allergies, so best to have options for all.

Sarah Wilson has created a great little blog all about how to host a sugar-free morning tea. Otherwise there’s no shame in creating a pot-luck! Get everyone to chip in and create a truly stress-free celebration with an array of home-made food.

 

 

8) Pick some baby games!
Now for the really fun part! Get your hosts or most creative guests to take the reins! There’s so many ways to get all your guests involved with too many adorable ideas! Revisit that Pinterest board you created at the beginning and seek out some games which are achievable & fun for all!

Pinterest & the web is full of resources, here's 25 Baby Shower Game ideas that we loved, as well as 30 Baby shower games that are actually fun!


9) Create simple & sweet bonbonnierres
Matching gift tags add a simple finishing touch to your day. These are affordable, and simple and you can even order them to match your invites or your theme on the day!

 

 

10) Pre-order thank you cards
It’s fair to say that once you’ve survived all the hype and excitement of your Baby Shower, you will be releived to think that you were so organised and pre-ordered your Thank You cards before the big day! Now all you need to do is write a personalised note to your guests, and send them out - simple!

LET'S GET THIS PAR-TEA STARTED!

27/04/2017 3:42 PM

 

 

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council Australia's most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.

The Biggest Morning Tea is a chance for people to get together and raise money for a great cause. 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Today, there are more than 1.1 million Australians who are either living with cancer or who have survived a disagnosis, but it is estimated 1 in 3 cancers in Australia are preventable. The official date for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is 25th May 2017 however if that doesn't suit you, you can hold it any date in May or June.

 

And if you are fabulous do decide to host a morning tea, the Cancer Council have created a huge range of DIY Printables for you to download and create, to add that special touch to your party. Check them out here.

If perhaps you have run out of time to boil the kettle for this event, don’t worry as High Teas are now a trendy, elegant and intrinsically feminine way to celebrate events such as baby showers, bridal showers and birthdays. While the art of doing it properly need not be stuffy or restrictive, it does require forethought and planning. Whether you’re a first-timer, or a seasoned morning tea pro, here are some pointers to help make being a host a breeze.

 

 

Decide on a Venue

Once you've decide who you're going to invite the next decision is to where to have it. The cosiest intermit setting is in your home or your garden, or you can also get your work colleagues involved and host it at work!

 

Decide on a Theme

You don't necessarily need to pick a theme, just a pretty tablecloth, tea cups and cupcakes. However there are three classic themes which will then help you choose your table settings and food; these are Vintage, Alice in Wonderland and British Morning Tea.

 

Make it Memorable and Get Creative

Have a little fun. Design some activities for the event. For example have your friends go head to head in a competitive bake off with blind tasting or have a lucky door prize for a cake at the end of the party.

 

Drink

Make sure the sugar and milk is set on the table ready to pour your guests a cuppa as they sit down. Try to provide a variety of tea - Earl Grey, peppermint, fruit, herbal and English Breakfast. A pot of coffee is also a good idea. Of course, if you're celebrating a special occasion, don't forget to pop open the bubbles!

 

Food

Where you do even begin with all the delicious morsels that a moring tea can have?! Here's a great article from Best Recipies with ample ideas that will make your mouth water! Or if you're trying to avoid sugar, Sarah Wilson has a brilliant blog on how to host a sugar-free morning tea here.

 

And last, but not least, invitations!

Here are a selection of some of our most popular invitations for a mornig tea, ladies brunch or a high tea. Simply click on the invitation to see the product on the website!
