    We were so excited for one of our customers, Little Big Company when they were featured on Amy Atlas‘ site.  Louisa and Melissa created a party that would be every little girl’s dream (and maybe a few big girls’) for Louisa’s 7 year old daughter.  I still discover new things every time I look at the pics!

    Our joy was amplified when we realised that some of our products were featured!! Especially our Candy Floss Cart which Kate created.

    We are HUGE Amy Atlas fans! Amy Atlas, also known as “The Sweets Stylist,” is a coveted entertaining expert, baking and crafting stylist, and is internationally recognized for creating the stylized dessert bar trend.

    Amy Atlas is an international icon and for Little Big Company to catch her eye is a wonderful achievement!

    I want to share the “Behind The Scenes” info and stories behind our great shoots & events.

    I will be sharing, the REAL stories and tips, because life is not a magazine!!

    Charlie B Turns 3!

     

    I did say “I am so not having a party” but children’s birthdays are always so special and guilt got the better of me. My Charlie B (as we call him) was turning 3 and I had less than 3 days to pull it all together. There is nothing like an extra project in my already busy life as a Mum, Marketing & Product Development Manager, School Treasurer, Wife, Sister, friend plus all the other hats us ladies wear!!

     

    Enjoy!

    Kate :-)

  • May17

    A very special little boy was turning 3 and we created a gorgeous Party Table that the kids all loved!

    I wanted to share some pics so that you can see how diverse our range is and hopefully be inspired.

    I will be posting a detailed blog with lots of tips and tricks so that you can save some time and angst :-)

    I will be posting a shopping list shortly, in the meantime, you can browse our store here.

    Polka PartyWe are so proud to be releasing the latest Party Range we have designed ourselves! POLKA PARTY! 

    We have listened to our customers and recognise the importance of creating products that let you personalise your party or event. 

    This fun range can be used for a wide assortments of occasions, be adapted to many themes and work in with other products to create a gorgeous, unique decoration for any event! 

     

    Ideas for Themes are:

    ~ Red Polka: Enchanted Woodlands
    ~ Pink & Blue Polka: 1st Birthday or Christening
    ~ Black Polka: Milestone Birthday: 30, 40 & Beyond 

    All pieces are supplied flat, for easy storage, minimum damage and space saving. 

    The range is available in a wide colour pallet: 

    • Pink & White
    • Blue & White
    • Red & White
    • Black & White

    The range will be available in May 2011. 

     

    Pinwheel 

    What’s not to love about Pinwheels? Do you instantly get transported to a time when summers were long and life was simple? I do! 

    Pinwheels are a perfect way to add decoration to the garden, either in trees, on walls or in pot plants – instant decoration without any effort! 

    They can also be fixed to walls, fences, chairs, invitations or hung from light fittings – anywhere really – and they will instantly add movement and interest! 

     

    Topiary Box 

    Can be used for a million things as a base to extend your theme!! 

    We used them left to anchor the pin-wheels (left & above) but can also be used for table centerpieces, flower arrangements. balloon bouquets & more. 

    These boxes are so versatile and can be re-used! 

     

    PVC Bunting 

    Bunting adds a festive feeling to any occasion, party or event. It is a versatile piece and can be re-used or left up long after the party is over. 

    Bunting is not just a party piece but can be used in children’s bedrooms & playrooms as a decoration. 

    Our bunting is even better as it made from PVC which means that rain will not ruin or damage it!  This has not been available in Australia previously! 

     

    Lolly Bag 

    Having matching patterns allow the Lolly Bags to become part of the decoration as well as performing a function. 

    Being paper, you can embellish them with labels or ribbons so simply leave them as is! 

     

    Noodle Box 

    Maybe the question should be what couldn’t you use these for? 

    They are a great alternative to the Lolly Bags or can be used ot serve food at your event or party. 

    Like the Lolly Bags, they can be embellished and enhanced in many ways! 

    Food-Safe: the material is coated so you can safely put food straight into them. 

     

    Paper Chain 

    Another nostalgic piece that can be used for any event including Christmas! 

    Remember making these yourself and it never looking even?  We’ve taken the work out and only left the fun in!! 

    Like the Bunting, Paper Chains can be used inside the home as well as outside.  An affordable decoration for any child’s bedroom or playroom. 

    The paper chain is coated with the same PVC as the Bunting, increasing their durability. 

     

    Paper Cone 

    Perfect to use to serve food (yes at a party, popcorn is food!) or just as decoration. 

    Food-Safe: the material is coated so you can safely put food straight into them. 

    The paper cones are flat and assembled as you need them, so you can keep some in the cupboard for the pop-up party! 

    This range has been my baby and I am so proud of it and appreciate the great feedback we have had already! 

    Nancy Georges from Magnolia Solutions interviewed me at the GHA Home & Giving Fair, in February 2011, I took the opportunity to show her Polka Party:
