Date Palms and Desert Sands

We created these little boxes for my friend Fathima and her husband Suleman. They requested boxes which they would fill with dates to give to family and friends on their return from Hajj. We used a soft cream satin band inspired by desert sands and a shimmery deep green ribbon inspired by date palms. The font on the tags were a rich brown colour like the sweet dates that would fill the boxes...

More pics from Nuha's Baby Viewing

I've been meaning to post these pics from Nuha's Baby Viewing  for ages now. This TCP on the B event was from back in July this year.  These pics are by the talented Chantel Andrews of Vita Bella Photography.

Rustic Eid Tablescape

I've been spending lots of time in my Dad's Custom Carpentry Workshop recently and I think his passion for wood rubbed off on me. Whilst making handmade chalkboards for Eid gifts in his Workshop, I decided on a tablescape for this Eid with natural elements.
 Wood (of course), hessian, greenery and soft creams and whites to tie it all up...

Our vintage Scrabble letters Eid sign! Looove! 

Our trusted Birdcage dressed with some rustic greenery and two wooden birdies.

Our Eid gifts...We turned ordinary pieces of wood into chalkboards and added a strip of ribbon to each. We added a stick of chalk and a little message too!

The packaged chalkboards all wrapped up!

There had to be buntings, and hessian buntings this time, trimmed with crochet lace ribbon.

Beetle Birthday

A very sweet sister Fatima contacted us to prepare a birthday table for her brother Yusuf's 18th Birthday. She described him as a funky fun guy and she sent us a pic of him and his white VW Beetle. Instantly falling in love with the car, we decided to use it as the basis of the decor while adding pops of colour to show off Yusuf's fun personality.

The VW Beetle image we used through the decor.

We added the VW image to these boxes that we covered blue and filled with popcorn.

Yummy baked goods by Nabeela's Bakeshop styled with pops of bright colour.

Red barber striped straws. Contact us for purchase info. We' ve got lotsa colours too.

Retro buntings.

Yusuf with his uber-cool VW Beetle!

Baby Blue

This sweet baby blue event was a Baby Viewing to welcome little Zayaan into the world. His Mom, Bahia, decided on the colour scheme to celebrate the birth of her first son with friends and family. 
We created a Candy buffet as sweet as a new born...


 We used these fine lace patterned paper doilies to create the buntings that spelt the little bundle's name.

 Tissue paper pom poms! We can't get enough! White ones were the perfect fit this time!

 These marshmallow pops were created by Nabeela's Bakeshop to suit our theme. 

 We created food tent cards for the event too.

 Congrats Bahia on your new bundle. 
May he bring you joy always!
