Oscar & Dahlia's Silent Disco Party


Silent disco


Have you heard of a silent disco party? I hadn’t until a friend told me they were so much fun. At first I was wondering how it would work, isn’t half the fun of a disco party having the music blaring? Well, the party is over and I am well and truly a silent disco fan. The kids were all given headsets and the instructor, Mitch ran the party like a cool older brother and had them entertained the whole time. Parents were able to relax and have a chat while the kids danced, played limbo, musical statues and even a trivia game. It wasn’t all quiet, there was plenty of singing by the kids which was actually so adorable, any shyness seemed to disappear when the headsets went on and we had kids belting out their favourite tunes. Mitch also brought a smoke machine and disco lights which had the kids enthralled! Oscar turned 9 and Dahlia 7 and even though there was a mix of ages and sexes the party was so fun for everyone.  I can’t recommend this party highly enough. If you’re looking for an easy party at home you will love it!

Balloons, balloons, balloons!


Asma from Balloons Coburg supplied the most amazing balloons for the party. She went to so much effort making balloons individual enough for Oscar and Dahlia to both love and put so much care into her designs! She is a perfectionist and spent time setting them up to look just perfect! She made Oscar a special Western Bulldogs footy stand and Dahlia a beautiful unicorn stand. She also made this incredible arch incorporating colours that both Oscar and Dahlia loved and it enveloped the doorway, it looked just beautiful. She also made a balloon cluster with their ages on there, a confetti balloon and table balloons.

She supplies balloons for kids parties, weddings, engagements, 21st birthdays and baby showers so contact her if you are looking for some amazing decorations. 

Asma if offering $50-80 off a balloon package, depending on the option you go for. To order, please call her on 0401 597 270.


Rebel Donuts

This year we decided to do something different instead of using a traditional cake. Sarita and I had recently sampled the Rebel Donuts range on a photo shoot and we couldn't believe how delicious they were. Seriously melt in your mouth material and with flavours like James Dean cookies and cream, Mars Attack oozing with caramel, Mr Unicorn with a little unicorn magic, and Mint Madness for the mint lovers. Rebel Donuts supplied their hand made donuts in tiers that we used as the cake and the kids loved them! 

The good news .. they even deliver! Order online here.


Baby Bistro


Party food that kids love and is healthy ... is that possible? Yes it is! We used meatballs, sausage rolls and chicken strips from Baby Bistro, an all organic, natural option that hides veggies and goodness in their yummy food. We added some hot chips and made chicken and chip boats with extra meatballs and sausage rolls. As the party was around dinner time, this was perfect to satisfy hungry tummies without filling them with junk. Baby Bistro offers food for babies, toddlers and big kids, and we had comments from parents that the sausage rolls were the best they had tried!

Stevie's Aerial Yoga Party


Kids birthdays are big business these days and it’s so easy to get caught up in agonising over every little detail in which our efforts are usually wasted as kids don’t care whether our disposable water bottles are personalised or how fancy our take home lolly bags look, all they usually care about is how many chicken nuggets they’ll be served and if they’ll take home a pass the parcel prize!

This year for Stevie’s party, I wanted something different to the usual play centre parties we attend and above all else I wanted it to be EASY and stress free so I enlisted the help of Laura @kidsbeats and we decided on an aerial yoga party for Stevie. The thought of 22 kids hanging upside down while getting their ‘zen’ on sounded appealing.

Laura was incredible, I literally for the first time ever got to sit back and simply enjoy the party. No running around like a headless chook or stressing over which game we’d play next. Laura handled the 22 kids like a pro and the whole party was so much fun and ran so smoothly. I was super impressed.


For a bit of fun Stevie suggested instead of our usual piñata that we order a cake that’s secretly a piñata! We hired Kristy @smashedpinatacakes to come up with a super cool creation for Stevie, and boy I’ve never seen kids more excited than when Stevie cracked open the delicious white chocolate to reveal an enormous mountain of lollies! This smash cake was absolutely a hit and I can’t imagine my kids ever allowing me to organise a party without the inclusion of one from here on in. Haha


For the cake, Stevie wanted something ‘boho’ with fresh flowers and semi naked icing and Jade @hellosugarbespokecakedesign sure delivered the most breathtaking creation that not only looked beautiful but was oh so moist and delicious! It was almost too pretty to cut open but I’m certainly glad we did. Yum yum!!!


All in all Stevie’s party was a day of enjoyment, completely stress free and the kids had an absolute ball and I felt like they’d earned their party food with all the downward dog and aerial tricks they had performed during the day.

Thanks so much to @kidsbeats for making this party one of our best yet!!!
