Peekaboo Melbourne magazine feature

It is with great excitement that I found out yesterday that our Dala baby shower that we styled a few weeks back was featured in the Peekaboo Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney issues. Please have a look at the Peekaboo magazine and have a look at page 27 and page 28, hard copies can also be found at various distributers listed at the Peekaboo website. To say that Lou and Mel (from Little Big Company event styling) and I had fun styling this shower as a team would have to be an understatement, we had a ball! The inspiration behind the baby shower is the Landskap range from Kikki K which features the gorgeous Dala horse and the venue was at Petit Atelier (Thank you Christina!!)
We would not have been able to do this shoot without the help from the gorgeous Lilian from Lily Chic Events, Lil swung from stylist to florist to decorator with true grace, thanks Lil.
Another HUGE thank you goes to our photographer Clair Bremner from See Be Art, without Clair this shoot would not have been possible, so thank you Clair xxxx


Look at the gorgeous invitation designed by Little Big Company, they designed this invite from scratch using the colours we chose for the shower.



We chose soft pinks, burnt orange, navy and light blue as our colour palette seeing as winter has just begun.



One of the show stoppers was this 2 tier carrot cake. The bottom tier was decorated in fondant flowers to mimic the Kikki K Landskap stickers they sell. The top tier showcased a hand cut and decorated fondant Dala horse with simple navy ribbon. This cake could easily be made for a boy baby shower by changing the pink into blue on the horse cake topper.




Some gorgeous orange horse pops made from coconut ice and white chocolate.



Each party guest took home a goody box with Kikki K products and a Sweet Tashie felt horse wrapped in a muslin hand stamped bag.



Gorgeous fleece baby jacket for the mother to be. I think Bumble Bee Boutique did a wonderful job creating this gift.



Hand cut and hand decorated Dala horse sugar cookies. Ofcourse the Dala cutter arrived the day after the baby shower, go figure lol




Tricycle borrowed from Petit Atelier, Christina had to watch me with beady eyes as I tried to sneak it to my car twice during the shoot ;-) Petit Atelier was also the venue for the shower, they have the most devine, open, HUGE, light filled space I had ever seen and are PERFECT for parties and crafting. I love them so much I've booked my next party in November with them ;-)




These gorgeous ride on horses were also a gift to the mother to be, aren't they stunning? Calamity Bolt created these beauties, I was very impressed with the attention to detail and love that went into these horses.



Strawberry Woopie pies, need I say more? ;-)



Here is a close up of Sweet Tashie's felt horses that were part of the take home gift for all guests. To be a bit different I hung some Kikki K pegs on a wooden board, hand stamped the word thank you and hung some hand stamped muslin bags (with the felt horse inside each bag) from the pegs. The bags were from Little Sootie and the Dala stamp from Kikki K
