Hello! Today I am so excited to share this once a year opportunity where I get to do EVERYTHING from designing to styling and setting up… what a job! Our gorgeous daughter chose to have a ‘brandweerwapartytjie’ to celebrate her 3rd Birthday. Challenge accepted. A lot of people asked me if she is a tomboy? No, she is just really fascinated by Fire Engines and doesn’t judge it to be male or female… I kept everything in red, grey and white with flaming accents, added some red doileys, confetti, ribbon & a lovely soft font to bring in a feminine twist.


This year however, I learnt from last year and got some great help in so that I can enjoy the party too! First step was to confirm the venue. I work a lot with Jean-Marie from the Food Emporium in Broad Acres, Fourways and the combination of her amazing cakes, their delicious food, fantastic service and really nice venue with the little ‘Rose Cottage’ and cool play area for kids made this the perfect choice. Secondly I was so lucky that my favourite photographer Laura from Laura Jane Photography was available to capture all the fun, hard work and special moments. I am posting a lot of photos, especially detail shots here today so please stay…. if you would like to see more pictures you are welcome to hop on over to Laura’s blog and view them here.
