What do you get when Little big Company, Lily Chic Events and Just call me Martha collaborate? A lot of fun and laughter and this lovely Christmas lunch created for baby Hugo who will be celebrating his first Christmas with his parents this year.The inspiration for the Christmas lunch came from the blue and white pottery called Delftware (Delft pottery) which is made in and around Delft in the Netherlands, since baby Hugo’s mum was born there. The luncheon was very intimate and fun with each guest bringing along a homemade favourite family recipe to share at the party.

Double stacked Christmas fruit cake with ginger bread house with hand painted details, the first time I've tried to paint details like this onto a cake. Not easy!! lol

Some of the food on the table was mini Fruit cake parcels, Spice cookie baubles (traditional Dutch cookie recipe), ginger cookie Delft baubles, lamington pops (a nod at baby Hugo’s Australian heritage), coconut snow cupcakes, passion fruit Cheesecake, cherry & fig Christmas pudding, vanilla bean and caramel eggnog and the show stopper cake, a double stacked Christmas fruit cake with ginger bread house with hand painted details! Yumm!

To keep cost down the crackers on the dining table were home made using craft toilet rolls, fabric and scrapbook paper. We also used a Christmas printable set created by Ham and Pea Design & Paperie to embellish the crackers and dress up the dessert and main table.
