Tiffany & Co themed Bridal Shower

This is the Tiffany & Co Bridal Shower we prepared for bride to be Sumaiya this past Saturday. Her sweet cousin Zaheerah contacted us to put it all together. It was at the Executive Suites @ 555 on Essenwood Road.
We used this gorgeous ladder table custom made especially for us by Custom Carpentry.
 Crystal balloons, pom poms and a sparkly bunting. 
Take a looksy...

We added sparkly crystals to the Tiffany blue tent cards that had little bow prints on them like those on a Tiffany & Co gift box. 

We customised the barber striped straws with these Tiffany & Co straw flags.

Each drink bottle had a Tiffany & Co sticker on them that we had specially made for the event. 

 The bigger cocktail bottles were alternated with some of these cuties. Complete with straw flags too. 

Silver pom poms handmade by use. We used two of these on either end of the ladder table.

These yummy Macaron pops were a hit with guests. Once you've tasted them you'll know why. Contact us for purchase info.

Complete with little silver bows

Beaut and oh-so-yummy creations by Nabeela's Bakeshop.

 This Tiffany & Co Box cake by NB too

The sparkly bunting! 
So shiny and pretty we couldn't stop looking at it. (Sorry, we just get carried away some times)

We did all white florals in little mirror boxes that we customised with a Tiffany & Co sticker. 

The favour bags with a 'thank you' tag and glittery peg. We added a scalloped edge to the paper bags too.

Crystal helium balloons. These are all the rage at the moment. Who knew balloons could look so elegant? We've got them for sale here at TCP on the B. Go to the Party Supplies tab on our Home Page for product pricing and info.

Another amazing decor item created for us by Custom Carpentry. We used this white wooden frame complete with Tiffany & Co signs and crystals as an entrance feature. 

And finally, the themed napkin bands.

Tropical Lunch

These are the pics from the Tropical Lunch I hosted for my group of friends last Sunday. To see invite pics and the full story on the event go here

Earthy hessian and glittery golds- The perfect mix to create an afternoon of tropical glamour!
A bright pink flamingo was the star of the show. We used the flamingo clipart on all the artwork for this event.

We had a great afternoon catching up and munching on good food. 

We made these place cards with the help of some bright yellow lemons.

Little fruit bowls for guests to snack on.

We made these flamingo straw flags for the barber striped straws. 

Coconuts and a pineapple added just the right touch to the tropical theme.
