Launch Party Day ~ Party number one

Wow, our launch party day was so much fun, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to showcase not only our gorgeous products, but also to create the parties as well.  The first theme was 'Things I love...' and the second was 'The future looks bright' and they both came together beautifully. 

The 'things I love...' theme is well, pretty self explanatory I guess.   I wanted it to be all about what inspired me to start Sweet Little Birdy... It was a beautiful sit down tea party with pink as the central colour, and combined my love of polka dots, roses, teacups, vintage decor and sweet little birdies. 

Delicious delights were served and included cake pops and sweets, sandwich fingers and circles and mini donuts, as well as sweet little birdy cupcakes and baby lamingtons.  Scrumptious hot finger food was also enjoyed and included mini quiche and cheese triangles.

Our gorgeous Sambellina pink polka dot partyware looked amazing, and themed in beautifully and our paper straws added a nostaglic touch. 


So many people helped make the day a success and I am truly grateful.  To everyone who attended I thank you sincerely ~ the buzz is the room was so incredible and your postive and kind comments mean the world. 

To my darling partner, who I had doing little projects in the shed for me, thank you - our cake pops and marshmallow stick boxes looked fantastic and I LOVE them.  Thank you for your patience when 'I just need these birds white' or 'I just need a coffee' or when I start off by saying 'I have this idea...'.  Love you beyond words x

Thank you to our super-talented and wonderful photographer Renee and her gorgeous assistant (aka straw fixer) at  NFE Design ~ Renee's work is amazing. 

Chair covers by Natasha at Plan Your Special Day ~ Not only did they look awesome, but Natasha's assistance on the day was really appreciated. 

Buffet labels and circles by Sarah at Style Me Gorgeous ~ these just added that 'finishing touch' to the food and will be available at Sweet Little Birdy very soon.


Our gorgeous spotty cups used as lolly cups looked amazing on gorgeous grass mats from Sharnel Dollar Designs

What a perfect lolly holder!  Our turntable with mini buckets was most impressive.

Our polka dot birdy cake on the platter that matches our large dome

Our mini cupcake stand was perfect for mini donuts, while our large cupcake stand was ideal for our salmon fingers and round ham sandwiches made using our cookie cutters
Our Sambellina plates (on the plate holder to the left) matched in perfectly, and our plain white cake stand held sandwiches

Our two tier plate stand held strawberry oreos and mini lamingtons, while our dotty suitcase (that come with a dotty onesie and two pairs of socks) was ideal to use for scrummy pink biscuits.  Our small milk bottle also made a perfect vase! 

Our paper straws are gorgeous in mini recycled bottes


The tables were set with some of our birdcages, decorated with our Ah-Tissue mini pom poms.  We also used our metal cake stands as a centrepiece, with little birdies sitting atop. 

Our Sambellina party tags, and a flower chocolate from Lollypotz made our gift bags look awesome!

Roses in recycled bottles and jars scattered on the food and beverage tables and an old crate on the beverage table completed the overall look

Our gorgeous food table!!! YUM

Our party all set up ~ on our entry table our metal stand held champagne, our mini birdcage favours were a perfect balloom weight and I had lots of fun making the rose display in one of our cylindrical jars

A wonderful day and the launch of our exciting sweet little birdy

(second party coming soon...)
