{the inspiration}

A couple of months ago while Little Miss and I {and the husband over the weekends!} were spending some time in the Southern Highlands I spied a gorgeous piece of kraft wrapping paper with delicate silver leaf prints and had to have it as I knew I would incorporate it into an event or project soon.  Just a few weeks ago I was asked to style and organise a 60th birthday dinner for a very stylish and party loving birthday girl.  I was given a very wide brief so I knew just what my inspiration would be!
