Boutique Picnic sneak preview...

We're busy preparing for our next event - a birthday picnic in the park for three guests of honour! To mark the beginning of spring, we decided on a crisp and fresh colour palette of lemon, white and soft grey. The menu is also starting to take shape; think mini hamburgers, gourmet quiche and an assortment of lemon sweets. To wash it all down, we'll be serving boutique beer, citrus cocktails and home made organic lemonade.

Here's our progress on the paper and fabric elements - yes that's 6 metres of bunting and a miniature version for the cake!

We hope you have a fabulous week and in the meantime, check out Becs Lake's blog! She emailed us some pictures of her awesome NZ inspired dessert table - the sheep cake pops are absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing Becs =)

welcome to Layla's enchanted rose garden!

Here are some details from Layla's first birthday! The gorgeous lovely giant pink rose in full bloom was the inspiration behind this theme. Our mini table included a two tier chocolate mud cake with handmade sugar rose, butterfly cupcakes and cookies, fizzoes, iced VoVo's, meringues and cloud marshmallows. Pink lemonade was served in vintage glass bottles complete with cute themed straws.
Each guest took home a vanilla cupcake in a personalised box tied with sweet ribbon to remember the day.
A big thank you to Amy Atlas for featuring our party on her fabulous blog!

all aboard for benjamin's train party!

Here are some pictures from our latest project, Benjamin's 1st birthday! We decided on the theme after learning of Benjamin's favourite toy train. The colour palette was easy; shades of blue, red and white just seemed the right choice for a little boy. The menu was filled with fun traditional sweets and of course a delicious giant chocolate mud cake! The sweet little train topper is just the perfect centrepiece, don't you think?

The birthday boy looked adorable in his custom made felt railroad cap; enjoying the sweet treats with his friends after a long afternoon of colouring in!

A big thank you to Sophie for being a wonderful and creative photographer. Her skill and professionalism is second to none and we can't wait to work with her again. Stay tuned for more of her work!

Cake Ink.'s new online store will feature these locomotive paper goodies, along with a range of other fun party themes, very soon. Until then, be sure to check out the rest of the pics from our locomotive party in our gallery section.
