Daniel and I celebrated our engagement/birthdays a week ago with a 50s themed party.
It was a lot of fun. Most guests dressed up in 50s attire. We had karaoke, old movies playing on TV screens. We had the party catered and had gourmet retro diner food: chilli fries, mini hamburgers, mini hot dogs, ribs, southern fried chicken, etc. Mum also had her backyard decked out and dressed by staging people. It was amazing.
Here are some pictures from the night taken by our wonderful friend, Nadine.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much. I've been so busy getting together my photography website and teaching makeup classes and doing uni work and running businesses and planning my wedding.... *takes a deep, relaxing breath*
I wanted to share with you some photos I took at Summer's little girl's 1st birthday. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone.

Just wanted to share some pics with you that I'd taken at my Mum's birthday earlier this year.
I threw a party for her at my house. Coincidentally, her birthday also fell on Easter Sunday. I felt so honoured to be cooking for the family on Easter, normally this is Mum's or Grandma's domain!
From memory I served:
- Champagne with guava juice and raspberries
- Potato pancakes with smoked salmon, guacamole, capers, rocket
- Roasted vegetable frittata
- Asparagus tarts
- Turkish Delight cupcakes with rosewater icing
- Chestnut puree cupcakes with chocolate glaze

Check out Bakerella's adorable cowgirl cookie jar gift idea. I thought it would make a great wedding favour or party gift.
Go to her website for all the details on how to make these and for a downloadable pdf for the sticker labels.
A++ to Bakerella for this one!
