Ballerinas and Princesses

My daughter is turning 5 in July and she has started to talk about her birthday already.  At this stage she says she would like only girls this year, her bestest friends, and a ballerina and princess party.  Perfect I say!  Lots of fun for mummy too.  PINK PINK PINK AND MORE PINK! There are so many gorgeous ideas out there in web land so I am starting to collect my favourite images.

Katrina de Pola Dessert Tables

I have relaunched my party business as Katrina de Pola Dessert Tables.  My partners have moved on to other things so I have decided to stick with my passion which is styling parties and focus purely on dessert tables. 

Here is a table I recently styled for a ladies beauty morning tea....

The Enchanted Tea Party

The supermodel Natalia Vodianova recently designed a dress to sell through Caramel Baby & Child with all the proceeds going to her foundation Naked Heart Foundation. Natalia´s beautiful daughter Neva can be seen here wearing the dress...

  To celebrate the launch of the Natalia dress the ladies at Caramel Baby & Child threw an enchanted tea party at their Notting Hill store in London. 

Now I love the idea of an enchanted tea party.  It´s probably my favourite children´s party theme.  So here are some gorgeous inspirational pictures....

Birthday Cupcakes

Made these vegan banana beauties for one of my dearest friend´s birthday last week.  We had a girly lunch at Mil Mil Agros. (Must say I was disappointed after all the hype surrounding local celebrity chef Dani Garcia).  Still we had fun!

Gold and Cream 40th Birthday

Party season in Marbella started off with a bang on Saturday, with a gold and cream themed 40th birthday party.  The brilliant venue was Restaurante La Mangaleta in Bahia Marbella and is perfect for an al fresco party, under the trees and by the sea.  There was live music by the singer from La Sala and a great atmosphere, helped by the gorgeous day.

A great idea for a party game, download these celebrity faces from the internet and put on skewers.  A certain ice-breaker at a table!

Laduree Inspired...

I think my favourite party theme would have to be 'Vintage'.  Obviously it can be interpreted in many ways but I love pretty, pastel and girly.  I just came across this gorgeous photo shoot set up by a talented event planner called Melissa Elise Event Design + Styling.  It is just divine, reminiscent of a Laduree salon in Paris.  It would be perfect for a baby shower or a bridal shower or even a wedding.

I love the idea of a tea bar!  What a brilliant and original idea!  Will have to use that one!
