I am hoping you can see this picture?

It is from a real party submission on the Birthday Girl Blog, and I just love the beautiful simplicity of this idea - vintage hankerchief bunting.

Super sweet and what a wonderful way to display your granny's old hankies. Lovely idea for a baby shower, first birthday or even a wedding...

Soo, I am breaking with my steadfast rule of only posting about party things today.
I just had to share these pics of my new "statement" necklace that I ordered through Second Look Jewelry on etsy.com. I think it is possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, so it's not something that you might wear to the shops, but I have a gorgeous black strapless dress that I am going to wear it with for an upcoming wedding.

Tres tres in love...

Well, now that the excitement of having a brand spanking new website has subsided a little, time to get back to the real work...

A few new products are going in the shop this week - all Retro Surf Party related.

I am in the midst of planning my son's 2nd birthday party (it's in May - I like to give myself lots of time!). It will be an I LOVE PARTIES (of course) Retro Surf Party and in my search for some extra bits and pieces to add to the Party Pack, I stumbled across these great retro finds. I just had to add to them shop...
12 x Tissue Hula Girl Straws. Each assorted colour 10" bendable straw has a 2 1/2" hula girl. $6.00 per dozen
Large Galvanized Metal Buckets 5". $6 each.

10 x paper Hibiscus Cocktail Parasols. Assorted colors. Each 2" parasol is on a 4" wooden stick. $1.00 for 10

Some super sweet surfboard cookies from http://www.thegirlwithacurl.com/.

These would look great with our Retro Surf Party!


Have I shown you these?

They have to be the most lovely, elegant cookies I have EVER seen. I found them whilst poking around for inspiration for my sister's wedding.

They are from the SweetAmbs shop on ETSY (http://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetAmbs). Such a shame she lives in the States...
If you are brave, you might want to attempt something similar for our Garden Tea Party!

Apologies for the radio silence the last couple of weeks, but there is good reason...

We have a FABULOUS new website to show you - go to http://www.iloveparties.com.au/!!!

We love the new site and we would like to thank Emma from Morris Bear Designs (http://www.morrisbeardesigns.com.au/) for all her wonderful work and patience in getting it up and running.

Yay! Have a great day.
