Emma is the owner of Sweet Em’s Party Treats, an event styling and lolly buffet jar hire business located in Brisbane, QLD. We have been working with Emma on some wonderful events throughout this year, so were thrilled to share with you her fabulous Pink & Gold Baby Shower celebration for this month’s featured Party of the Month.
Emma Says –
I decided to plan and organise a truly beautiful Baby Shower for my sister Kelli, as this is her first baby and was their fifth attempt at IVF, so this was definitely a wonderful milestone worth celebrating finally, and an overwhelmingly joyful occasion for them!
After a couple months of organizing and planning I found a local venue called Journey’s Kitchen & Bar, a lovely, funky cafe nestled in the new and growing area of Springfield Central. After having being there for breakfast and coffee a few times, I was sure that it was a great choice.
Theme & Vendors
I decided on the theme being pink and gold. I have done many pink and white themes in the past, so this was something a little different, but still keeping with a pretty and girly theme! Trying to find the perfect combinations of pinks and golds proved to be a little difficult at first, as there are so many variations around. But, after I’d began sourcing some gorgeous products from various suppliers including: Print & Party, Your Party Pal, Bickiboo Partyware and CakeU, the theme all came together beautifully.
I styled the tables, both lolly and guests tables, adding some hints of vintage with the two antique chairs on either side of the lolly table. These were originally white, and my mum sprayed them gold and gave them a little sand back to give that vintage look. Giant balloons were tied to these and were a great feature.
The staff at the venue were awesome, even putting out some complimentary jugs of strawberry lemonade on guest tables to match our theme. We had some hot and cold platters of assorted finger food provided by venue as well.
Guests were treated to a lolly buffet, where they were able to fill up their little goody bag as they left, with various pink and gold confectionery and personalised chocolate bars from Print & Party.
About Sweet’Em’s Party Treats
Party planning and styling is something I have loved to do since having children, and having the opportunity to organise their parties. The love and passion just grew from there, and shortly after planning most parts of my wedding four years ago, I decided to take this up as a business while also being a full-time Mum to my four children. My business is an outlet to keep the creative juices flowing, and I love to help people at the same time, taking the stress out of their event. Whether it be a Wedding, Baby Shower, Engagement, Birthday, Christening, High Tea, Hens or Bucks Night, Fundraiser or Corporate Function, I am just happy to be able to provide something wonderful to treat them and their guests, no matter what the theme may be!
