Winter Wonderland Christmas Theme

With Christmas fast approaching (almost too fast!) I know many of you are planning various Christmas gatherings – whether it’s for your family, your friends or the kids! So here is some Christmas inspiration based around a Winter wonderland theme based around white of course, with some blue and silver mixed in as possible options. Red is another possible colour to work into this theme as it looks lovely with white and ice blue. You could also incorporate gold instead of silver into this theme.

Incorporate snow flakes, white trees and reindeers, snow and lovely Christmas items which you can easily find in the shopping centres as well as online, to create a winter wonderland feel!

Hope you enjoy this selection =)

Christmas Colour Inspiration

What are your Christmas colours? It’s a question that seems to be getting discussed a lot lately on facebook.

Do you go traditional red, green and white? Do you like to change it up every year? Or do you stick to the same (but unique) colour palette each time?

We all know Christmas is about a lot more than just the colours we decorate in and it’s important that we don’t put pressure on ourselves as mum’s to have a Christmas tree or dessert table that is ‘magazine worthy’ – especially when you have children who want to be hand’s on in the decorating!

However I always find decorating in a colour scheme (and choosing the colours) is a fun part of the early Christmas preparations!

Here is some colour inspiration for you based starting off with what is fast becoming quite a popular colour combination – bold red and soft aqua:


Red and Aqua Christmas table – Save the Date for Cupcakes Blog


Red and Aqua christmas – Country Living


I love these soft colour palettes of blue with creams and golds for a fresh look:

With a different shade of blue and gold you can create a warm feel:


Blue and gold table – The Guardian


Blue and gold Christmas tree – Country Living


A unique pink, gold and blue colour palette makes for a bright and beautiful Christmas spread:

Vibrant purple is a great colour for Christmas! Team it with a bold red:

Pink seems to be the ‘new red’ of Christmas! A soft pink, gold and silver colour scheme would look gorgeous:

You could go rustic with browns mixed in with reds, greens or golds:

Add silver to a traditional red and white combination for a stand out look:


Red, white and silver table – High/Low, Food/Drink


Isn’t this a great Christmas centrepiece using baubles? Love it!

Red, white and green will always be a Christmas favourite:

You could also keep things very simple and light with a white winter wonderland feel in the midst of our hot Australian summer!

Another take on the pinkcolour scheme, this time with different shades of pink with gold. So elegant…

This is a stunning table! I love how they have brought in elements of traditional red ad green but also mixed in touches of creams and golds:

For a unique touch, why not mix pink and green together this Christmas?

Pink and green baubles – Destiny Awakes blog


Perfect for an adult’s Christmas dinner is this black, silver and white Christmas colour scheme:

Neon christmas gift wrapping – Sweet Style


I hope you have found a Christmas colour combination for Christmas.

It’s impossible to collate every possible Christmas colour combination available.  So – what are your Christmas colours? Did I include them in this selection or are you doing something different? I’d love to hear from you!





Little Birdy Theme

With spring just around the corner, now is a perfect time to be planning a cute birdy theme party for your little one! This is a party theme which can take on a myriad of different colour schemes so I’ll be sharing various items which you could use regardless of which colour path you go down!

I haven’t focused on plates/cups/napkins etc in this post since the tableware could be based around many different colour options! However perhaps you may draw some colour inspiration from some of the invitation ideas I have featured below.

First up is this popular Alannah Rose invitation with a cute red bird featured. There are a few matching items available to go along with this design as well:

Lala Bird invitation – Alannah Rose

Printables are a great option if you want a range of matching stationary for your party! They keep everything coordinated which makes life easier for you as you don’t have to find matching invites/cupcake toppers/banners etc

This vibrant polkadot birdie printable collection is a delightful option for a girl:

Polkadot Birdie – Style Me Gorgeous


Close up of Polka Dot birdie printable – Style Me Gorgeous

However the little birdy theme can be used for boys as well, and this Owl & Bird party printable in a blue and green colour scheme is definitely the way to go:

Owl & Bird Printable – Style Me Gorgeous


For a different colour palette I love this bright Lovebird theme with a blue/pink/green combo:

Lovebird Printables – Fairydust Stylish Stationary

To decorate the party space think pretty birdies, rustic birdcages and lovely birdhouses! Here are some to get you inspired:

These birdy buntings are so sweet and a great alternative to the flag bunting for this party.

Handmade Golly Gosh Bird bunting – Twiggi


Bright pink and chocolate bird garland – Paperklip

For another cute idea, how about these Bird mobiles to hang down around your party area or over the table?

Tiger Tribe bird mobile – Twiggi


Tiger tribe hanging string bird mobile – Little Styles



For something really different which would look cute in a nursery afterwards, have a look at this delightful fabric birdcage!

Birdhouses are a great decoration either to place on your table or to hang around the party area. Both these below birdhouses have the option for hanging and would look lovely hanging from a tree outside:


You can’t get prettier than this handpainted wooden birdhouse!

Birdhouse dangly – Purkilicious

Another great option for decoration is some tree decor

Dress up your bird cages and trees with some delightful hanging birds.

This hanging bird tealight holder would be beautiful even without the use of the candle:

Hanging bird tealight holder – Dabble In Design

Or these fabulous felt birdies would look so pretty as part of your party decor and could even be used as favours. The tree is also available to order as another alternative to a tree decoration:


Felt birds – Fairydust Stylish Stationary

So very very precious! Beautiful handpainted birds:

Handpainted bird dangley – Purkilicious


This cute cake bunting is so colourful, would match a few different colour schemes and brighten up any cake!

If you are making cookies for the little one’s then these cookie cutters in different shapes would be great for creating an array of different sizes and colours of birdy cookies!

Set of 3 bird cookie cutters – Sugartime

This footed bowl is so lovely to hold some great treats in but I also chose it for this theme as it reminds me of a beautiful large bird bath you would see in a garden of a mansion in the English countryside! Or is it just me who picks up these things? = )

Decor bon bon round footed bowl – Sweet Style

For a sweet touch on your table you could use these card holders for your food/dessert labels which also make cute decorations:

Love bird card holder – Dabble in design


Birdcage card & tealight holder – Pink Frosting

Have a look at this colourful table runner which would match a wide range of tablecloth colour options underneath and could be used for boys or girls:

For favours boxes these birdhouses are so so lovely aren’t they?

These birdy paperclips would be great to attach onto a thank you tag:

For a girly touch then these pocket mirrors would definitely send your guests home smiling!

A fun alternative for a favour are these colourful bird whistles:

Well I hope these ideas have given you some inspiration for a Little Birdy party to celebrate your little one! It really is such a sweet theme with many unique touches available out there and such flexibility with what colour combinations you can choose from. I hope you enjoy putting it all together!
