PARTY DETAILS, as told by Vesna

We had an amazing day celebrating the 4th birthday of our sweet little boy Aniken. Aniken is absolutely obsessed with garbage trucks and when I told him that he will be having a garbage themed party, he was over the moon. He has a cute nickname – trash king :)

Dewi of Sweet Bloom Cakes made the delicious newspaper inspired “trash king” cake. Sweet treats included, mint macarons, scrumptious cake pops and a selection of yummy candy. I purchased these cute black and mint garbage bins and filled them up with lollies. I made the backdrop using Inky & Co wrapping paper which tied in nicely with the theme. The colour palette was mint green, black and craft with touches of gold.

The children had an amazing time playing pass the parcel and “pick up your trash” game. Kate of Kat Cvet Photography captured the whole party magnificently.  She helped me bring to life the vision that I had of styling the perfect dessert table for Aniken’s party. Last but not least, I was glad that Aniken had an amazing time with his friends and family and I enjoyed watching him collect the rubbish and eat the scrumptious cake.
