This is what I'd like to be doing in 5 yrs time. . . . .

I was having a 'planning' conversation with a friend a few weeks ago.  I was talking her through a design for her son's Christening when out popped the question 'Do you want your invitations to co-ordinate with your cake?' - then it hit me (WOW) - "complete party packages"!   From invites, thank yous, bunting and sweet treats galore, all co-ordinating in whatever theme we come up with!  Only problem being I'm not sure about the printing of invites (I'm pretty ok with the graphic design side of things) and all the cute little labels I would need!  So I shelved the idea and forgot all about it. . . . . until today!!

THIS is what I want to be doing. . . . . THIS is what I want to be designing. . . . It's just so much more than baking cupcakes, it's about creating an amazing, fun, quirky party table for YOUR party - no matter what the occasion!  I'm determined to solve my 'printing issues' and really want to start investigating how to bring this all together!  I'm just in love with it! Still not sure how I came across it, but I found these images and my wee heart just leapt inside me! As I'm new to blogging I'm sure I need to credit the origianl source, I found these on the blog hello naomi and they are awesome!

Simply gorgeous! Check out those details and the cake!! AMAZING!!

My dream starts here. .  . . .
