1. My place card lumies!  I love them. They looked wonderful on the night of our party. Click [HERE] for the DIY post.

2. Crafty idea for bottle labels. I spied these bottles in the Kikki K window. Use gift wrap or old birthday cards and create labels or bottle wraps for your party drinks.

3. We added streamer fringes to some balloons for a grand final football party. Click [HERE] to view my DIY on ruffled streamers.

4. How sweet is this stamp!  I thought it would be great for card seals, place cards etc.

5. Mlle Belle starts school next year so I bought a couple of apple cosies from Kate’s Etsy shop.  Aren’t they cute.

6. I made some fun party straw and drink stirrer flags. Click [HERE] to view the DIY post.

7. I watched the movie, Dark Shadows (loved it) starring Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfieffer and was inspired to edit this self-portrait. I used PixFx and the paper texture filter.

8. Another fun app that I discovered – Duomatic.  It allows you to create an illusion of double exposure but taking two of your photos and meshing them together.  It’s a basic app but, it’s also very easy to use.

9. I participated in a tour of my local market – South Melbourne Market.  I’ve been shopping there for almost ten years, but I learnt quite a lot about the history, stall owners, produce and also the great effort towards the market’s waste and energy sustainability  If you’re visiting soon, I would recommend joining the tour.  You can book [HERE].

Well, I hope you enjoyed a little preview of my favourite Instagram photos this month.  You can also view my August highlights on Instagram right [HERE}.  Oh and you can follow me on Instagram at @madame_bonbon.  Let me know if you showcase your party styling on Instagram, as I’d love to follow you.

Thanks for popping by,

Whilst I was going through my library of images on Instagram, I noticed that most of my photos were quite dark or grey.  It’s probably safe to say that August was a cold and wet month in Melbourne.  We were all waiting for the warmer…

Mason Jars for Your Party

It’s a popular wedding trend to use mason jars to serve cocktails and other refreshing drinks to guests.  I’ve taken inspiration and incorporated a couple of uses for mason jars as party decor.  You can use the jars as containers for cocktails, desserts, flowers…
