Weekend Discoveries

I have my party planning head on this weekend. One month to go until Sammy's 4th Birthday Circus extravaganza - the invitations go out on Monday!

In amongst researching vintage circus prop hire, obstacle course bouncy castles and party supplies I have discovered these incredible party posts plus a few others too good not to mention.

I love Sweet Paul for inspiration and ideas for things to eat, make, pets and kids. The magazine looks fabulous and this edition features free Circus printables

The lifestyle blog Handmade Charlotte features inspirational decor and party ideas and did a great round up of an article in Food Network magazine, all about how to mix icing colours.

The Flair Exchange has a fantastic crepe paper bow tie bunting tutorial that I am definitely going to try for the fireplace. After all, all clowns wear bow ties! Although I might add some paint polka dots to my crepe paper first.

Now for some non party related links!

One of my US blog friends gave out adorable cookies, her Mum made her for a blog conference. This got me thinking and researching and I found these camera brownies. I might try it for a small event! They could be the first cake I ever make!

Since I found this blog by Twigg Studios a few months ago, I have been obsessed with their paper flowers. This week featured another wonder - crepe paper anemones!

I have got more than a little obsessed with foodie blogs of late. I love learning their photography tips and the best in the world has to be Cannelle et Vanille. This is how to photograph a fish. I will be taking loads of inspiration from this blog for future Bento Babies posts so watch out! 

I have bought a printable file from Etsy for Sammy's Circus invitations. In fact, the package came with so much, I worry I won't get around to printing it all in time! If you fancy a nose this is it ;)
