B’s Bridal Shower

My sister got married last October, yes it has been awhile, but do give me a chance, i’m trying to catch up! So as Maid of Honour, duties include and are not limited to… planning the Bridal Shower! My sister had already had a hen’s night out of partying planned by her friends so this was a Sunday afternoon, pretty in pink affair.

The colour themes we settled on were pastels of yellow, pink and creme. Our backdrops were made of paper fans we folded by hand for hours, but the overall outcome was worth every bruised finger.

Wonders of PowerPoint when you have no idea how to use, or do not own design software. With PowerPoint, and the overlapping of shapes and images, we created trivia games for the bride, and food labels. We also made the baby’s breath crown that sits on a beautiful 6 tier red velvet cake from Cake Spade.

Here’s the breakdown of where all the yummy desserts are from:

  • Cake – Cake Spade
  • Cupcakes – Kreme Couture
  • Scones – The Tea Party (Best scones in Singapore in my opinion, with the most delicious berry cream cheese spread)
  • Strawberry Strudel – Ritz Apple Strudel
  • Ribena Soda – Made by us!

What’s a Bridal Shower without some Games about the Bride!

Here are the Games we played:

  • Who knows the Bride – here we asked a bunch of questions about the bride to see how well the party goers believed that knew her.
  • How well do you know the Bride & Groom – here we asked questions about the beautiful relationship between the two.
  • Share a memory of the Bride – at a party filled with family, friends and so much love, memories go way back and it’s so much fun to unravel.

A little something to thank everyone for comingĀ

This was so much fun to do and I can’t wait to plan another with the best girls. Someone get married please. xx

Owen’s 2nd Birthday

Owenblog

My best friend’s son turned 2 in April and with the help of my sister and cousin we put together a race car themed birthday for him! We pretty much made everything ourselves except the croissants and mini hot dog buns that were bought from two different bakeries, oh and the cake was ordered as well but we added the car on top of it. It was really fun and tiring running around, planning and budgeting but that’s how events go the reward is when everything looks pretty and perfect, and more so when people love it! It wasn’t without setbacks though, like having a mirror as a background, and some cake woes, but we were still happy with how everything turned out!

Slaved over these cupcake toppers and labels I designed from scratch took a couple of hours to finish it but was so pleased with how they turned out especially since I had no fancy software just good ol’ fashioned powerpoint. Also baked the red velvet and chocolate cupcakes you see above!

My aunt helped make traffic light coloured jellies that are so perfect, also featuring my label. My parents were such troopers as well. My mum stayed up hand stitching the edges of the tablecloth and my dad was our logistics guy transporting us and our stuff even with his bad leg. So much love.

Instead of filling goodie bags with candies we prepared bags of 5 toy race cars each for kids to take home. Also, pretty blurry picture but that’s a podium my sister and cousin made from cardboard and paper to add some levels at the same time match the theme.
