The Big Egg Hunt


Over 200 eggs decorated by different designers, artists and celebrities for The Big Egg Hunt, an event sponsored by FabergĂ©, were displayed across London. The 2½ foot uniquely crafted eggs were later sold by auction to raise funds for a couple of charities. It is aiming to break a Guinness World Record for the biggest egg hunt in London, ever.

Night Owl Sleepover Birthday Party

I discovered this fun Night Owl Sleepover 7th Birthday Party through Kara's Party Ideas. What a stunning event! Tash Kimlin hosted the birthday party for her daughter and her 6 friends. She created a dreamy atmosphere right on her back deck for the girls to enjoy day giggling and have fun, and peacefully fall asleep in the night. This is every little girl's dream party come true!

Tash's daughter Sharlize loves owls so that became the theme for the party. The color palette of fushia, orange and tiffany blue is scrumptious and work perfectly with the theme.

I love the idea of creating your own owl canvas art. Each girl received a bag full of goodies which had a specially made owl! All the party details are just too cute for words, and the cake!! Love the cake!
