If you’re anything like us and want to come out of a Christmas feast with a food belly that could challenge even Santa’s hearty ol’ tummy then boy have we got a feast for you! Cookes Catering created the most exquisite Christmas spread we have ever laid our eyes on!
And once everyone was stuffed but ready to bring on round two (DESSERTS!) we had them covered! With the help of some marvelous meringues and cookies by Loryn Loves, a macaron tower by Ladurée, cake pops by Raymond, some adorable reindeer strawberries by Strawberry Avenue, and some next-level Christmas cakes by Sweet Ems Cakes- everyone was absolutely blown away!
CREATIVE CONCEPTUnless you’ve been hiding under a rock (or are on some weird Instagram-cleanse) you would have seen that red and pink are kind of a big deal right now. In one moment the fashion and design overlords forbid us from daring to commit a styling ‘no-no’, and in the next moment, they’re embracing it. Who makes these rules? And how is it possible that something once considered a fashion faux pas is now one of the season’s hottest colour combos?! Well, whatever the reason for the change of heart- we dig it! There is something so bold, so fiercely feminine about this colour combination that has got us dazzled! Whether it’s fuschia and russet or blush and ruby- clashing colours has never been so #onpoint!
THE DETAILSTo celebrate Christmas, we wanted to banish the traditional colour palette and go for this daring and dazzling colour combination with everything from the AMAZING Christmas tree and florals by Local Love Co, to the vivid balloons by Blowout Balloons. Thanks to the gorgeous stationery and bonbons from Alpine Events Co, along with some amazing decor by My Event Decor- this #oipchristmas is the most stylish yet! Our fabulous models were dolled up with the help of Inglot on makeup and the team from Schwarzkopf & Heading Out Hair & Beauty on hair with their outfits provided by The Iconic.The amazing furniture, provided by Harry the Hirer was absolute perfection- in particular, their INCREDIBLE couches! Um, want-want-WANT! All the spectacular signage was thanks to Etched Perth. Big thanks to everyone who made this fabulous day possible and a MERRY (and fabulous) Christmas to all!
THE GIFT OF GIVINGGift-giving is one of the best things about Christmas time. Being able to see your loved ones faces light up when they are surprised at how well you actually know them. This year is no different, and Christmas with children is a whole new ball game - you really have to make their day! It doesn’t have to be materialistic - but more so a token of how much you appreciate them is always going to win over some hearts.
For Aston’s nephews and niece, especially the little ones, they aren’t going to pretend to like his gifts to protect his feelings, so when he nailed it with his choices from Toys’ R’ Us and we see that happy look on their faces, you know it’s genuine!
For Aston’s dad, who is a bit of a coffee aficionado, the perfect gift was so incredibly obvious - a Nespresso machine decked out with festive flavours and ready-to-caffeinate.
And last but not least, his sister received some amazing products by Brazilian Butterfly, as she definitely deserves a good pamper being a mother of three!But the best gift of all - was introducing Sam to his family this Christmas. How will it go?!
