Is there a word that evokes more promise and more joy than celebrate? To truly celebrate something feels so complete, and you usually do it with people you love. I spend a large part of my year helping people celebrate special moments in their lives from wedding day celebrations, birthday parties to hosting dinner parties for friends and loved ones. I am going to share with you some simple ways to host the ‘perfect’ party, and give you some tools to pull it off effortlessly and enjoy the process along the way. I am a sweet tooth, and chocolate is on my daily ‘always’ healthy eating food pyramid in our household. Nothing says the sweet life like an indulgent, all dessert and all adult party. So for some visual references to help you I designed and styled a Dessert Party. On the menu will be cake, biscuits, candies and treats to enjoy.

Planning Every good party takes some planning, so begin with the housekeeping end of your celebration. Set aside a good hour to begin planning. Get out your calendar and diary and choose a date for the party, and then begin writing your guest list.

Budget Sit down and give yourself a budget for your party, and stick to it. It is something people do not consider seriously sometimes. This will give you a clear idea of what you want to spend and something to look back on for next time you wish to host another party. Paper Runway / 9


Invitations Decide on an invite for your party. Never feel guilty if you do not have time to make your invitations, there are plenty of places to buy pretty invitations these days. If you are going to make your own, allow plenty of time. A tip is to push back the date a week to make the invitations, and not put pressure on yourself to cram it all in. If you are going with a theme express it in the invitations, and once you’re happy send them out.

Shopping list Make a list of all the items you will need including what you will make yourself and what you will buy, and think about the kind of decorations you’ll need to get. I am always adding and changing the list as the ideas develop but having the bones there helps me stay on track. This also gives me a clear idea of how much I am going to spend. As my list is never a short one I break it into sections to make it easy, then about a week before the party I start gathering what I have, and look at what else I need to buy. I break my list into: What I am comfortable making? What I am buying or getting a professional to make? What food basics are required? and list every item you will need. My family love food so there needs to be a little more, and next day leftovers are great. How much alcohol will I need? Most people will have a celebratory glass of champagne on arrival and if you allow 2 full glasses per guests, that leaves people to move on to whatever they choose to drink for the evening. You’ll get 4 generous glasses of champagne per bottle with a little left over and a really easy way to budget the rest is to allow half a bottle of red wine and half of white whine for each guest.

Flowers Flowers at events always awaken your senses when you enter a room. They are an instant visual impact and make the space look alive. You don’t have to spend a lot on flowers for events. Set a budget, and if you have a beautiful garden, pick your own flowers and add them to the arrangements on the table. It’s simple but it makes the arrangements personal and saves you money, and thinking outside the square to include the gardens of friends and family can make it magical. 10 / Paper Runway


You are invited‌. I bought this lovely card from my local card & paper shop. I really wanted it to be square so I cut it down with a paper slicer. I then mixed it with a spotty envelope, which picked up the red in card. It was my starting point for the colours for the Dessert party.

Paper Runway / 11

DĂŠcor for the party For me it is about inspiration, so draw from things you love. Things you love at home, in life, a beautiful image, or a fabulous shop window display can always be used as a springboard for the dĂŠcor of the party.

Music To set the tone of your event, think carefully on music and what it will bring to your celebration. Let the fun now begin & the big day has arrived. You are prepared and set-aside time to set up the space your celebration will be held in. Check all your food & wine is accounted for and ready to go. When all the hard work is finished and now you can enjoy what you have created. Remember to enjoy yourself and try to relax during your celebration. Try not to sweat over little things and most of the time only you will know if anything went a little astray. I love to celebrate; it is part of my culture, my life and what makes me happy. Some of my fondest memories growing up are the times spent watching my parents cook and entertain. I have a large collection of memories to enjoy that have lasted me a lifetime. Any party, event or milestone celebration you attempt with love is worth all the effort and then some.

Table settings are so fun to play with. I really wanted to play up colour, as I find people are frightened to use it at times. The rose plates are not only fun but also a perfect size to fill with cake and treats. I even used glasses that were tinted pink to follow through my look. The idea for this party would be the flowers, and desserts form the centerpieces for the table. Everything would be in arms reach to create a more intimate fun gathering at the table to enjoy.

I love cake; I can eat cake anytime of the day. These days you can have almost any cake made. I wanted the cake to be textured so I had this beautiful pink ruffle cake made. It was filled with vanilla bean and raspberry.

I adore bite size cupcakes and to make them extra sweet sparkles were added to compliment the shoes and handbags. There are some things a lady cannot ever have enough of: shoes, handbags and a great tasting cupcake. For the gentlemen, chocolate dipped cupcakes so everyone can enjoy.

The flowers were a collection of David Austin roses, which are fragrant, Sweet Pea which is wild and unstructured looking, and Ranunculus and red Roses in different shades of pinks and reds, which were purposely chosen to tie back to invitations.

It would not be a complete indulgence unless you send your guests home with a treat box to enjoy. I made this little box up with some of the desserts on offer from the table. After the consumption of all those sumptuous treats, I even popped in a toothbrush for the sweet tooth’s.

Cherry Blossom Bakes Chocolate Brownies u Makes 15 squares

/

Ingredients 200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces 350g plain chocolate, broken into pieces 325g unsalted butter, cut into pieces 1 tbsp instant coffee granules, dissolved in 1 tbsp of water 5 large free-range eggs 325g (1 2/3 cups) caster sugar 175g (1 ½ cups) plain flour 200g hazelnuts, chopped

.

METHOD Pre heat the oven to 180C (160C if fan-forced). Line a 30cm square baking tin with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Stir well until the chocolate and butter are mixed together. Stir the dissolved coffee into the chocolate mixture. Using an electric hand whisk, whisk the eggs and sugar together in a heatproof bowl placed over a pan of gently simmering water until doubled in volume Remove from the heat and gently fold in the chocolate mixture. Sift in the flour a little at a time, folding it in as you go. Finally fold in the hazelnuts. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking tin, level the top and bake for 25-30 mins until risen. Leave to cool slightly then cut into squares.

,

TIPS 1. I like to dust the nuts in some flour so they don’t sink to the bottom. 2. For a more cheeky adult indulgence, dissolve the coffee granules in brandy rather than the water. In a separate pan, gently heat 2 shots of brandy and add the coffee, stir until it has dissolved. Stir this into the chocolate mixture. 3. To make it nut free , omit the hazelnuts and you can replace with glace cherries.

My very first memory is of painting a bright yellow sun besides a pool; I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a creative enviroment in many beautiful parts of the world. I studied commercial art in Cape Town and started my career as a junior art director in advertising. I went to work as an art director in London for 8 years. I then traveled the globe, had babies and found myself dabbling in freelance graphic design. I was soon led back to my paints and pens and have at last, found my home in illustrating. Now based in Melbourne, Australia I have had some wonderful opportunities to work for a variety of clients as well as the chance to start my own creative business called Sweet William. I love what I do and hope to keep on doing it for as long as I can.

Describe your studio/work space. Is it a laboratory/shed/tidy/chaos/treasure trove/secretive cave or something else... My studio is a room in our home. As a family we understand the importance of a dedicated creative space and were prepared to loose a bedroom to gain a studio (there are plans to extend one day though!). My studio is organised chaos. I sort of know where everything is but it looks pretty crazy. I like to surround myself with imagery that inspires so the walls are an ongoing pin board to which I add continuously. I have collected magazines and books for years and have been through 3 cross continent moves with my collection - some mags date back to 1991...

18 / Paper Runway


What do you love most about paper? Everything! I have been collecting paper since I was 5 years old. I will fall in love with a pretty pattern, beautiful texture or inspiring image and tuck it into one of my over stuffed paper bags that are filled to the brim with paper I have collected over the years. When I rifle through my paper collection it is like looking through old photographs, I can recall where and when I got each piece of paper: travelling in China, at college in Cape Town, from a flea market in London, art shop in Paris, torn out of magazine in Doctors waiting room, gift wrap from a friend, stationary shop etc. With unlimited budget or geographic reach what is your ultimate art material/ materials? I would stock my shelves with Windsor and Newton Ink in every single colour they produce - wow imagine that! Piles of beautiful thick water colour paper and soft natural hair paintbrushes....yum!

Paula calls herself a “magpie who collects everything� ~ inspired by fine line black pens, tea, laughter, motherhood, markets, magazines, blogs, film, music, art, design, nature, colour, pattern and more.

How did you work with paper as a child? My grandfather was an illustrator and he had the most wonderful home studio in Cape Town, as I child I remember tearing, pasting and painting and making lots of collage, something I still love to do today. What artists do you admire and why? I admire the impressionists for the ground breaking movement of allowing freedom and energy in their work, I never tire of looking at Van Gough's paintings or the post impressionist work of Matisse. In Melbourne I love the street art and follow the work of Miso and Ghost Patrol, I am a lucky owner of an original Miso drawing. As an illustrator I love the work of Penelope Dullaghan and Olaf Hajek - I have quite a few of their prints and Hajeks beautiful book 'Flowerhead'. When is a work of art finished? Hmmmm when it gives me some sense of satisfaction What art do you hang in your home other than your own... what do you collect/ surround yourself with? Besides the work mentioned above I have a few prints from other Etsy artists - Cathrine Campbell, Anke Weckmann to name a few. I also surround my self with vintage finds, from old prints to garlands made of vintage paper and of course my childrens art - which I find very inspiring. What are you reading/listening to? Listening to a bit of everything: Gotye, Laura Marling, Kimbra, Angus&Julia Stone, Annie Lennox, Vampire Weekend. Reading The Catcher in the Rye, which I haven't read before and I am thoroughly enjoying. Describe what you are making right now? I am busy making tiny little doll houses out of matchboxes for a miniature doll we call Camille. What makes you feel most creative and most free? Inspirational work by other artists encourages me to be creative. I am not sure what makes me feel most free it changes all the time but I think love and support help. www.etsy.com/shop/lovelysweetwilliam?ref=seller_info

DIY Paint swatch Chandelier by Rhiannon Nicole of Hey Gorgeous Events www.heygorgeousevents.com/index2.php#/home Photography by Jenna McKenzie www.jennamckenzie.com

42 / Paper Runway


{Step 1}

You’ll need a whole bunch of paint swatches in your desired colours (seriously, emphasis on the whole bunch part). I picked a variety of blush, pink and red hues so I could get a fancy ombre look to my chandelier but I can only imagine how many different looks you could go for with your own chandelier. Using a scalloped paper punch you’ll need to punch about 40 -60 swatches into little medallions. Keep the medallions divided by colours in little saucers or cups like below.

{Step 2}

I bought my lamp shade (my chandelier base) from Lowes for about 5 bucks. Using an Exacto knife and super sharp metal scissors I carefully cut apart the fabric lamp shade, peeling away the pieces until the metal parts were as exposed as possible. When picking out a lamp shade I tried to pick out one where the bottom diameter is much smaller than the top. This will make your layers of paint swatch medallions hang better and thus look much better when the final product is done.

{Step 3}

Lay out your paint medallions, coloured side down, in the desired order. Tape down a long piece of coloured thread along the middle of the backs of each medallion. Then using a piece of tape, cut down the center width wise, tape together the edges where one medallion meets the next. Without this final piece of tape, the medallions with rotate on their piece of thread, thus showing the bar codes, text and colour names usually located on the backs of the paint swatches. If that doesn’t bother you then this step isn’t necessary! Repeat this step until all of your chandelier strands are strung and taped together.

{Step 4}

Flip your lamp shade upside down and fasten it somewhere where it can hang freely (I tied mine to the latch that opens and closes our air vent in our ceiling). Start stringing on your strands along the perimeter of the bottom of the chandelier until the entire metal base is covered. Then start stringing strands along the widest ‘top’ of your chandelier so that the lowest part of your strand hits the mid point of the bottom layer. Continue this all the way around until the entire chandelier is covered. Add a ribbon to the metal pieces (where the light bulb would pop in) and voila! You’re ready to hang this beauty!
