Come sail away with us....

Our family is pretty lucky... not only do they have us as mums, sisters and daughters (!), but they get the best parties!

We were thrilled to be able to throw this one for a very special little man, Alex's son Josh, who was turning 4 and; a special (not so little) girl, my sister Claire, who was turning 24. They share a birthday a week apart, so with Claire home from Denmark on holidays, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to throw a party for them both!

Being a combined girl and boy party, we wanted something that was classic, stylish and would work for both grown ups and kids. Our nautical 'Sail Away' theme (that is all available in our online store) worked perfectly and we were able to have some fun with all the different elements.

As usual, we took far too many photos, so will share some tonight and some tomorrow night, along with all our suppliers.

These beautiful baked items were all made by Alex - she did such a wonderful job on this gorgeous birthday cake!

We were so excited to have had this party featured over at the fabulous Amy Atlas last week - if you missed it, you can check it out here. 

We will be back tomorrow night with the rest of the photos and our suppliers.



  1. I love it! Absolutely gorgeous! I love how the colours and theme are carried over everything!! FABULOUS!!


  2. Must show my hubby this one. Our family is as nautical as they come. Hey, he even sails for a living - so when Little T is needing a birthday theme, this is gonna be it! Looks like you had lots of fun with this one. x

  3. Thanks ladies! We did have so much fun with this one - make sure you drop back tomorrow night for part two!

    Oh and we would LOVE to help out with Little T's birthday, everything is in the shop, but sing out if you need a hand!

  4. That cake is fabulous...such clean, meticulous work. Kudos to Alex! And all the party details are wonderful. Perfect theme for a boy & girl party!
