{the venue}

We recently styled a birthday breakfast for a gorgeous Eastern Suburbs women, held at her husband’s club, The Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club in Point Piper.  Our guest of honour had almost eighty women celebrate with her.  Guests enjoyed a celebratory champagne with their breakfast, which was catered by the yacht club {with Iggys bread added on special request} and styled by catherine & grace {with a big thanks to the birthday girl and her friend for helping with the flowers}.70th birthday image 12013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace082013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace33{the styling}

The birthday girl wanted simple and clean with bright pops of colour on white linen.  We used kraft card for the invites and place cards and added colour blocked hydrangea heads in rectangular vases to the centre of each table.70th birthday image 22013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace0270th birthday image 32013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace032013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace1470th birthday image 4{the food}

A blog post on a blog post!

The Kikki K Celebrate Today shoot has wrapped and is now up on the Kikki K Inspiration Blog.

In case you missed my post the other day, @catherineandgracestylefile {which is where you can find us on Instagram} was one of five winners of the Kikki K {@kikkik_loves} Instagram party styling competition!  I submitted a number of ideas, all of which you can see on my Instagram feed {and, as promised, I will post a full blog post here soon}, however my winning idea came from Little Miss’ christening party, where I stamped her name on bamboo cutlery, placed the cutlery into little bamboo pots filled with pieces of pink fruit.  Here is my winning Instagram pic:

Along with the other winning ideas from @juzsavage@supajulo@paperrunway (who worked with @stylelifehome) and @lulu_lucky, my idea has now been brought to life by the Kikki K team with their new Celebrate Today collection. Here is how it appears on the Kikki K blog:

I have to admit, it was quite thrilling to see my idea brought to life by Kikki K, so please pop on over to their blog, check out the other ideas and leave a comment or two.
