The old saying goes…”blue and green should never be seen!” But, at love to celebrate we always add our own little ending and say, “blue and green should never be seen… except with something in between!!” And in the case of our newest window display which we installed today that “something in between” is chocolate brown!!
We used our delightful new “Little Man” invitations and tags from Poppiseed Designs as inspiration and gathered lots of gorgeous blue, green and chocolate brown accessories we have in the store to fill the window. We also used a collection of partyware products from some of our favourite suppliers such as Sambellina, Contents: Party + Christmas + Home and Specklefarm which ALWAYS seem to fit into our window displays perfectly!!
Last year for a Father’s Day brunch we hosted at home we cut out cute little paper ties and attached them to our guests’ napkins. So today we incorporated this little idea in the window by attaching little blue and green ties (which we cut out of the VERY versatile Paper Eskimo bunting flags!!) and pegged them onto brown paper bags (our Sambellina brown craft treat boxes would be perfect too!!). These would not only make cute lolly bags for your “Little Man Party” but are perfect little take-home gifts or place settings for your Father’s Day celebration.
And with Dad’s special day rapidly approaching (eeek…it is on this Sunday!!) we couldn’t believe that our cute little Father’s Day cupcake picks were THE perfect match!!
At love to celebrate we think blue and green is a great colour combination and definately should be seen…with or without something in between!!
Happy Father’s Day!!!
Here’s a little sneak peak of just a few of the beautiful glass jars we have received from one of our favourite suppliers Contents Giftware. We can’t wait to set up our next window display using these fabulous containers filled with lots and lots of goodies!!
We’ll be back soon with more styles and some exciting new party accessories to help you create your very own Amy Atlas-inspired dessert table!!
At love to celebrate we are counting down the days until the Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton & Prince William!! In fact for the past couple of weeks we have been dreaming of wedding dresses, high tea, scones & jam, cupcakes, fine bone china, kitsch wedding souveniers and the Union Jack!! So in honour of the happy couple we decided to pay tribute to this royal occassion with a very “British” window display!!
This week we were very luck to have a friend bring us some “authentic” Royal Wedding memorabilia fresh from the London High Street in her suitcase!! How cute are the little wind-up Queen and Prince Phillip which we have placed on top of our beautiful wedding cake from Sonia and her team at Kiss Me Cake!! We thought they “topped it off” nicely!!
The girls at Kiss Me Cake never fail to amaze us with their beautiful cake creations so we also commissioned them to create these gorgeous little treats to mark the occassion!! Just perfect for British Royalty!!
Are you as excited as we are about the Royal Wedding? Are you staying home next Friday night to watch the wedding broadcast? Or are you hosting your very own Royal Wedding themed event? We’d love to see some photos if you are hosting an event!! Please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will showcase some of the best in the first week of May…or in other words when the happy couple are on their honeymoon!!
You can’t have an Easter egg hunt without a stylish little bag to collect all your chocolate eggs and goodies in now can you?? So we were absolutely thrilled when these gorgeous handmade fabric tote bags were delivered to love to celebrate this week just in time for Easter!!
There are three delightful patterns available – pink & white polka dot, yellow polka dot and green & white polka dot. Each bag comes with a gorgeous co-ordinating felt bunny tag which is perfect as either a name tag or gift tag.
There are two gift sacks in the range as well - a small short one and a tall bottle bag. Each of these come with an attached material tie instead of handles and are available in the three different patterns. They are perfect for filling with eggs or goodies to give to that special someone at Easter.
At love to celebrate our Easter stock is hitting the shelves and is now on display in our front window!! This year we have some great containers to display your eggs or to collect them in during your egg hunt.
Some of our favourites include these cute tin buckets which come in a variety of colours including white, yellow, pale pink, hot pink, lime, pale blue, dark blue & red.
These mini tin buckets are a great size for the little ones. They are perfect for filling with small eggs or lollies and would make a fun gift for friends, family or the teacher!! They have a small wooden handle and are available in white, pale pink, yellow, pale blue & hot pink.
Easter just wouldn’t be the same without baskets so we hope you like these simple natural cane baskets as much as we do!! This classic shaped basket is perfect for egg hunts or for giving as a gift filled with eggs and tied with a bow. Stocks of these are limited!!
Due to popular demand our gorgeous grass bunnies are back again this Easter!! We absolutely LOVE these little guys and think they look very smart with a lovely Easter-inspired ribbon tied around their neck!! But make sure you get in quick as they are sure to once again be hopping out the door!!
As soon as we laid eyes on these divine hand-made little milk bottles we knew we just had to have them!!
At love to celebrate we think they are perfect for serving your loved one their favourite drink whether it be a strawberry milkshake or champagne cocktail!! They also work well as a little vase for fresh cut flowers or a vessel to hold stationary items such as pens & pencils. We LOVE the fact too that each bottle has been hand-stamped so that means no two are identical!!
There is also this fabulous stripey red version which comes in two sizes- small and large.
At love to celebrate we always LOVE “dressing the window” for February as we prepare for one of our favourite celebrations - Valentine’s Day. For us this celebration on 14 February comes second only to Christmas as it combines three of our favourite things – hearts, the colour red and chocolate!! xoxoxo
INTERESTING FACT: Did you know that it wasn’t until 1994 that all Australian states & territories consistantly began to celebrate Australia Day as a public holiday on 26 January?
Today we not only celebrated Australia Day 2011 but also the last day of our summer holidays!! A fun backyard bbq was the perfect way to celebrate with family and friends. Lamb cutlets and sausages were followed by a traditional pavlova and lamingtons!! The only thing that was missing from our celebration was a game of backyard cricket!!
Happy Australia Day.
