Dinosaur and Jungle Themed Birthday Party

I had great fun celebrating my son’s 2nd birthday last weekend with hosting a Dinosaur Party complete with it own mini jungle for the cake table. Thomas had a ball and so did we. Using blocks of oasis I used mostly native flowers and foliage for the arbour decoration including Monsteria leaves, Cordyline leaves, Golden Wattle, Banksia’s and Thryptomene. In keeping with the Jungle theme I used wooden crates for standing the lemonade dispenser and lolly jars and used a log to stand dinosaurs and more foliage. The naked cake was sat on a big round wooden board on top of a fake patch of “grass” complete with a set of dinosaurs. To help with the backdrop I used a fencing panel from Bunnings which worked really well behind the cake table and arbour.

I love designing and creating any type of event and although I do style a lot of weddings, I love styling children’s parties as well! Please contact me for more information on helping style your next children’s event. enquiries@teacupsandroses.com.au or telephone 0424 504 421.

A Great Gatsby Inspired Vintage Event

The roaring 20’s was a wonderful era of glamour and indulgence.  People enjoyed living a fast paced life that involved opulence and wealth whilst dancing the night away to the Charleston and sexy tones of jazz.  Wealthy philanderers, fancy nobles, flappers and gangsters mixed together in this social whirlwind, making it a decade to remember.

With Baz Luhrmann’s remake of Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby out now, why not consider a vintage Hollywood glamour theme for your wedding or event to reflect on this wonderful era!

Vintage glamour can fit with any type of event such as a Great Gatsby themed kitchen tea or baby shower for the girls, a summer soirée engagement or birthday party, a special dinner party or a fabulous vintage glamour wedding.
Here are some of my hints and tips to help you get started.

1. What to wear – For the ladies you can try feather head bands and an elegant dress with lace or beading. For the men, a suit with a fedora hat, a handkerchief in lapel, brogues or braces – all current fashion items!

2.  What to serve – Elegant canapés served on vintage silver trays and vintage china cake stands.  Accompany with champagne and martinis served in vintage coupes.

3.  Set up a vintage lounge area– Set up vintage velvet and button tufted floral sofa’s indoors or outdoors depending on the weather.  Team them with an old steamer trunk or vintage side table with an ornate table lamp or floor lamp.

4.  Entertainment – A live jazz band would be the icing on the cake however playing jazz music on a CD or IPod (preferably on a record player for the authentic crackle!) would certainly set the mood. Visit https://www.weddingmusicbands.com/ if you want to transform a reception into an unforgettable event.

5.  Games and activities – Charades, lawn boles and croquet are perfect for this type of theme.  For some added fun why not hire our vintage dressing up props which include a variety of hats, furs, beads and feather boa’s.  Set them up with our DIY vintage photo booth in the lounge area to take some memorable photos on the day.

6.  Activities for the girls – For a kitchen tea or baby shower you can set up and arts and crafts table where each guest can make their very own vintage inspired headband.  Supplies such as beads, feathers and lace can all be bought at Lincraft.

Have fun planning your Great Gatsby themed events and please talk to us to arrange a consultation to discuss more inspiration and ideas!  All of these accessories and props can be hired from us for your special event.

LOVE blackboards

I just adore blackboards.  They take me back to my childhood days when they were used in school.  I always remember feeling like a real grown up if the teacher allowed me to write something on it.

In recent years white boards took over but they just don’t have the same charm as a blackboard.  Thank goodness blackboards have made a comeback and are now used in cafes, shops, florists and even at the dentist!  They look cute and quirky and almost anything can be made into a blackboard using a bit of blackboard paint…picture frames can be converted, old cupboard doors, window frames…the list goes on!  Here are just a select few of ours for hire.
