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:

Christening-125

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:
