It is both classy, natural, creative and every little boys dream. A true visual stimulation.

Boston's 1st Birthday

As I was surfing the net and blogs this evening... as you do at almost midnight.
I found a blog that I wanted to share with you.
Its Boston's first birthday and a safari party. I have to say that a Birthday party at any age is special. The enjoyment that we as mothers get and the memories we are creating for our precious children is what its all about. This beautiful show of affection and creativity was so perfectly done. Have a further look by clicking on Loralee's party blog link.

Martha's Magic

We all love a little Martha and in between cooking the kids dinner and sending a quick email or 2, answering the kids questions over homework , I remembered some of the great thing Martha has designed over the past couple of years. I thought that I would share with you over the next couple of weeks her great ideas.For more information on how to make them go to her website and either do them the same way or be a little creative and change things around to match your theme. Having a party in 2010 is not all about how much you spend its about being creative and having a memorable time.

Bianca's 7th Tea Party

This weekend we made the trip down from the island to attend my niece's 7th birthday party. 30 little girls beading and decorating cupcakes. It was such a success. My sister had it at a cafe called Sotto on West in Crows Nest (Sydney), the food was just fantastic and the service was not only professional but fast and friendly. Party food was all made on site in the cafes kitchen, home made sausage rolls to fruit skewers for the kids to duck and chicken for the hungry adults.
The girls were kept busy beading a necklace and bracelet , boxes and boxes of delicious looking beads kept being unpacked that I just wanted to sit down and join in. The entertainment didn't stop there. Out came the cupcakes and all the sprinkles you could think of and we had hundred and thousands everywhere.
A 2 hour party flew past and by the looks on the girls faces they went home full of food and excited. I would recommend both the beading and cafe. 10/10. Please email me if you would like more information
Happy Birthday Bianca.

Welcome to my new new blog

Being an almost first time blogger. I actually feel like I am writing in a diary or to a close girlfriend.
Slightly strange yet refreshing. I hope I don't let my would be friends down.

My name is Britta with a knick name of Glitter. Mother of 5, wife of 1, domestic goddess/ home help, not to mention all of the side jobs. Homework teacher, craft teacher once a week at the school, chef to the masses and creator of all things that sparkle in partylicious.
We live on an island right on the east coast of Australia. We have 500 avocado trees, not that i know what to do with them. This is a huge sea change for the Ford family. Having just moved from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, closing my shop that I loved because baby number 5 came along, ( Brayden)

I started Partylicious some years ago now after the need of wanting a creative output and to find something slightly different for my children's special party days. Sick of the mass produced plastic garbage I wanted a little bit of class without it screaming "Barbie" or " Thomas".

So in 2004 Partylicious was my 5th baby after just having baby number 4 Logan. As you will see over the next few posts in my very new new blog I have tried to be both creative and different. Its funny though because you think something is original and your design and then around the corner someone somewhere is also thinking they are original as well with the same idea but a slightly different colour.

Many times over the past few year I have had people copy and recreate my work, some have done it  badly and others have done it well. For the ones that have done it badly I hope know one actually thinks it was me. I am sure Amy Atlas knows what I mean. Not that I am comparing my work to the very talented Amy. Such talent should be bottled and put into a time capsule.

OK Britta enough of the babble, I hope you enjoy what you see and please email me suggestions you would like to see me create or things you have seen.

Welcome!
