Black and White with Pink Party Inspiration

February 5th, 2014 Posted by Black and white wedding themes, Bridal Showers, Golds, Gorgeous Table Settings, Parties in Marbella, Pink, Valentines 0 thoughts on “Black and White with Pink Party Inspiration”
As the month of February arrives our thoughts turn to Valentines Day, love, hearts and all things pink, red and more excuses for edible delights and sparkle!  

Us girls always seem to find a reason to eat cake and chocolate and February of course is good enough if it is pink or heart shaped!

So to kick start this month we thought we would share this pretty shoot we found on 100 Layer Cakea nice start to a fabulous February.   

We know many of our brides will be planning bridal shower parties and perhaps just some girlie get togethers, so black and white mixed with pinks and a hint of gold sparkle is a perfect and easy colour scheme to use.

We love the details, of course, the stunning Marimekko plates, now on my wish list, with the gold cutlery and those gorgeous gold fortune cookies set off the table beautifully.

 The guest girly goodie bags are to die for and how fabulous to receive one of these at a bridal shower or girls night complete with hot pink nail polish and cool sunglasses plus these rather pretty confetti pops, what a lovely idea but we are still trying to find the tutorial as as think they would be so cute for our weddings!

I can feel a Valentines girls night coming on just as an excuse to make up goody bags so watch this space!

50 Shades of Pink Charity Fundraising Night for Positively Pink

February 7th, 2013 Posted by About Us, Charity Evenings, Delightful details, Parties in Marbella, Party Decorations Marbella 0 thoughts on “50 Shades of Pink Charity Fundraising Night for Positively Pink”
Recently we were approached and asked if we would like to decorate and support Costa Women´s 50 Shades of Pink Charity Fundraising Night in aid of Positively Pink.


Positively Pink is a charity based on the Costa Del Sol raising money for the improvement and enhancement of medical treatment and provides a FREE screening programme for British Women living within the Malaga Province.  

Costa Women are a social and business networking community for women living, working and dreaming Spain.  They are amazingly fun and well worth joining if you wish to find out more about likewise fabulous women living and working in Spain.


Well what can I say apart from I was so pleased I said yes!


I have met and networked with an entertaining, lively and fun group of girls, we all worked very hard and had many laughs whilst planning this event and the whole experience has been fantastic.


I was thrilled to be voted the Favourite Sponsor of this event but it was probably only because of me bribing everyone to like me in exchange for chocolate that we won, but who can resist an offer like that?!   Moi competitive? Of course not!


So off we trotted in the morning with our twinkling lights, sparkly paper flowers, gorgeous pink tassel garlands, cake stands, funfetti, pink throws, bows – you name it, we took it and waved our magic wand over this event and we were thrilled with the final result.


We are delighted we can share some of Agata Jensen´s fabulous photos of the evening with you, we love them and are thrilled to have our hard work documented in such gorgeous images 🙂


It was a hugely successful evening supported by many fantastic sponsors, I was amazed at the generosity and support offered by so many of Marbella´s businesses.


All the guests looked fabulous and dazzled in many shades of pink!


There were lots of lovely surprises too ranging from naked men, a wonderful cocktail competition, fashion shows, cupcakes from Fi (which I managed of course to steal), mini champagnes (which I did not manage to steal!) and some wonderful sponsors selling sparkly things and donating proceeds to Positively Pink.


I managed to bribe Rob, one of our fab wedding DJ´s to come along and get the girls dancing and he even wore pink, brave man indeed!

The PR and marketing team behind this were brilliant, creating websites, organising printed banners, leaflets, cocktail competition cards, Facebook page, in fact the list is endless.

 All the hard work and effort everyone put into making this event a success was phenomenal and all the organisers, sponsors and suppliers can be found on the Costa Women´s 50 Shades of Pink Event Facebook page.

We are thrilled to hear over 1000 euros was raised just in this one evening.

We would like to thank Agata Jensen Photography for allowing us to share their fabulous photos of this event.

We don´t just design and style weddings, we wave our magic wands over parties and events too so if you are hosting a special occasion and would like us to wave our wands do contact us.

Private Villas for Weddings in Spain, Quinta Las Colinas

October 12th, 2012 Posted by Delightful details, Marbella Weddings, Our Weddings, Parties in Marbella, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol, Wedding Venues in Spain, weddings in private villas 0 thoughts on “Private Villas for Weddings in Spain, Quinta Las Colinas”
Earlier this year I was invited to meet with Niki and James at a villa called Quinta Las Colinas that they had hired for their wedding here in July.  As I wound my way up the picturesque Istan Road from Marbella, I kept wanting to pull over to admire the views over the lakes but I was booked for a meeting and did not have time to stop.
 

As I turned into the track down to the villa and wound my way towards the lake I could see what I hoped might be the villa at the bottom, it looked amazing.  When I arrived there I was shown into the villa through some delightful old wooden doors and immediately fell in love with it´s pretty Andalucian inner courtyard.  I love properties with inner courtyards so was immediately sold!
 
I was then led out to the back garden, having wanted to stop on the way up to admire the views over the lakes, I was rewarded as soon as I stepped outside into the gardens to be greeted with the most stunning views over the majestic, sparkling lakes, a truly breathtaking location.
 
I was hired by Niki and James to help them create their wedding decor and have to say it was such fun styling their wedding day as it just such a breathtaking place to work in, I kept stopping to admire the views all day!  Niki and James had a fantastic wedding day that partied well into the night. 
 
Fiestasol provided the delicious catering and wedding furniture, David Toms captured this wedding, we must get the proper photos to show you, Lizzie Marriage performed a beautiful ceremony, Sweet Things By Fi created a stunning wedding cake and Tristan Harper had the wedding party on their feet, dancing the night away under the stars!
 
We are thrilled that Quinta Las Colinas are now offering this gorgeous villa in such a stunning location as a wedding venue and in order to promote it they have become our newest shiny sponsor and we are thrilled to welcome them on board.
 
 
So let me give you some information.  Quinta Las Colinas is located just up the Istan Road from Marbella at Km 9, about a 10 to 15 minute drive away from Marbella and Puerto Banus and also only minutes away from the white washed village of Istan nestled in the mountains above Marbella so you can enjoy the best of both worlds from the nightlife on the coast to a tranquil tapas in the mountains.
 
 
Quinta Las Colinas is finished to a very high standard and offers extremely comfortable, luxurious accommodation including a delightful open plan lounge and dining area furnished with cosy leather sofas, a stunning wood burning stove, an inner Andalucian style patio area, and a built in bar that is perfect for entertaining guests in the evening! 
 
 
Along with the beautifully designed cosy charm this property offers, it has all the modern facilities including Sky Plus, WiFi, DVD with speakers outside on the terraces, and a fully equipped kitchen with an American style fridge.
 
Quinta Las Colinas sleeps 10 to 12 people with the accommodation consisting of 5 double bedrooms including a master suite with a double bathroom and secluded terrace and a tower room with a double sofa bed, ideal for teenagers.
 
 
There is a lovely full sized swimming pool on a lower level to the gardens that is perfect for a BBQ, pool party or cocktails as well of course as just lazing in the sunshine!
 
 Quinta Las Colinas is perfect for a smaller intimate wedding party and can easily accommodate a wedding of up to 70 people in the beautiful gardens overlooking the lakes.

Halloween Party Inspiration in Marbella

October 7th, 2012 Posted by Children's parties, Halloween in Marbella, Halloween Parties, Halloween table settings, Parties in Marbella, Pary Decorations Marbella 0 thoughts on “Halloween Party Inspiration in Marbella”

I am not quite sure what happened in the past week but we have suddenly gone from summery weddings to spooky Halloween?! 
 
Perhaps it was the onset of rain at the end of September followed closely by the arrival of the 1st October and now everywhere I look there are witches, ghosts, vampires and cobwebs and this is just my rather neglected house!  Well not the witches, etc but certainly the cobwebs 🙂 
 
I love this time of year, wedding world finally calms down here and it is like the spring, all the suppliers and contractors here peek out their wedding nests where they have been holed up for the best part of six months and start to socialise again, chat about our summer and generally catch up with each other.  I think tweeting would be a good description of this actually without the twitter element it is very similiar as we all connect again!
 
October is an exciting month, for one it is my birthday which I always manage to extend to a 10 day event and of course we have Halloween 🙂 
 
I love decorating my house for Halloween, well any excuse to be honest to decorate, and am still in love with the glitter pumpkins so I fear I will be hoovering up lots of glitter again this year but would not be without it!
 
If you are planning a Halloween party do contact us, we have everything to make a spooky occasion even spookier, from black table linens and chair covers with orange or gold chair sashes, glittery pumpkins, fabulous lighting, spooky stationery ideas and trick and treat candy bars!

Glamour at the Chopard Red Carpet Party in Marbella

August 5th, 2011 Posted by About me, celebrity events, Fairy Lights for Decoration, Parties in Marbella 0 thoughts on “Glamour at the Chopard Red Carpet Party in Marbella”
We are always delighted to work with Carlos and Anne from Lipara Productions who create some stunning events here in Marbella and the Chopard Red Carpet Client Party was no exception. Carlos and Anne had been given the task yet again of transforming the Marbella Club Beach Restaurant into a stunning and glamourous venue with a red carpet theme.

This is where we come in with my fabulous team we were on the beach at 8am, after a few coffees!, ready to start the transformation.

I had met with Carlos beforehand to work out what we were going to do and the technical stuff along with Anne who was organising and designing it and so at 8am in the morning we started to completely cover the beach club with red and black fabrics. Anne had one of my suppliers making up table covers, throws and runners and along with these stunning lights and the flooring team in afterwards the transformation was complete. We are thrilled with the results and the glamour and stars shone again in Marbella!
