Coming back from exile...

I unintentionally banished myself from reason- just overtired from the.....drum roll please.....THE MOST AWESOMEST SURPRISE PARTY EVER. I'm biased of course.

My aunty, my two sisters and I decided to throw a surprise 40th Anniversary Party for my amazing parents. My parents are very stable, loving, giving people and they have had a very beautiful life.....but they never had a wedding reception, through no fault of their own.

So we tried to recreate that. Here are some pictures:

My friend Kelly and I got together and used her awesome skills for screen printing the table  runners

Using Kale (from the cabbage family) for the floral arrangements

Table numbers in distressed frames (they didn't look too distressed, quite happy actually)

Odd tea cup candles made by my beautiful 10year old owl. All cups were op shopped (with a little help from my fellow friend op shoppers)

A Singapore orchid and Moss arrangement

And this is how it looked:
The beautiful chocolate mud cake

Yummy food



gift bags
What we wore:

Mr Owl and also the MC. Sharp!

I ran out of time to make my dress so this was a last minute purchase from ebay. Attempting to pull of peach and red.

My shoes

I made baby owls dress

My parents were shocked:

It was a beautiful night- one that my sisters, my aunty and I put a lot of effort in. I will never forget it.

Much has gone on since. Stay tuned for a tale of two cases:
