Mothers Day

Only a couple of weeks until Mothers Day.

For all the Mums out there, do you know what is planned for the big day?
Or is it a surprise?
Psst! See our new competition below!

I have been extremely lucky over the years and always been very spoilt.
Even having got breaky in bed made by the girls now they are a bit older.
Miss A is having a Movie Night at her day care.
Just she and I and the other Mums are being treated to an early movie and we get movie treats too!
I can't wait!

If you are organising a Mothers Day celebration you might like to add 
cupcakes to your menu.
Our wrappers will add a little 'wow' factor to the day!

Don't stress about your cupcake recipe.
Just grab a packet of Green Golden Butter Cake Mix
(on special this week at Woolworths I might add)
a tub of Betty Crocker icing
your favorite cupcake wrappers


Or get the kids to decorate their own wrappers for Mum.
This is a really cute idea, but Mums might need to drop a 
few hints for Dad to do this!  
He! He!

Now the fun bit....

Presenting a new competition!

Soon we will be releasing our new Paris inspired cupcake wrapper.
Would you like to win a pack?

Just tell us the best way you would like to spend Mothers Day.
Easy Peasy!

Please note - these will not be available for another few weeks so if you win you wont get them in time for Mothers Day

Go on...enter now!

Order your wrappers directly from us
or visit one of our stockists.
Remember selected styles are also available from 
Matchbox & The General Trader

Paris Dreaming!

Ooh La La!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of helping with the decorations my niece 
Ashlea's 21st birthday celebrations.
I was overcome with excitement at the prospect of what lovely creations I could come up with!
Being given pretty much free reign over what I could do, I was
like a kid in a candy shop.
My inner Martha and Amy Atlas were about togo crazy!

I finally settled on a theme of Parisian-Shabby Chic-ish.
I had a feeling this would be perfect for Ashlea's brunch.

Luckily I have a vast collection of goodies that fit my theme and the lovely Natalie had a few props I borrowed too.

I made a few little knicky-nacks for the table.
The cake picks were made from stickers and toothpicks.
These were in 2 sizes using a small round sticker & an oval sticker.
I stamped them with paris themed stamps.
Mint Boxes
Riot Art has plain white matchboxes.
I stamped these again with paris themed stamps and filled them 
with a few mints.
These were handed out as a little party favor.
 Birthday Post Cards
Plain white business cards were stamped with paris themed stamps (again) and left on a tray for guests to leave a 
'petite' birthday message for Ashlea.
They could then post them in one of our old vintage glass jars.
Bon Appetit cards
Riot Art comes to the rescue again with plain white cards that I just stamped with a cupcake/high tea stamp and arranged in front of the some of the plates of yummy food.

And of course our cupcake wrappers were the icing on the cake!

We awoke on Saturday to the promise of a warm autumn day in Melbourne.
We could not have asked for better weather.
I'm sure all the guests would have agreed that the brunch was just lovely.
Delicious food with great friends and family made it the perfect way to celebrate!
Apologies for some of the photos - the sunlight was so bright - even with the blinds down.

 Just had to share with you my most favorite slice in the world.
Jelly Slice made by Ashlea's Mum.
One word...

By the way - we will have a new cupcake wrapper design very soon.
Our gorgeous Eiffel Tower design will be ready in about 3 weeks.
We will give you a sneak peak later this week.

Lots of exciting things are happening at
The Cupcake Wrapper Co.

As some of you know, we had a big spread in The Sunday Age
a few weeks ago.
We were thrilled with the rather large photo and great write up about our 
cute Easter Bunny cupcake wrappers.

Miss C had her Bowling Party.
Lots of fun in those trendy bowling shoes!
Check out the cupcakes!

Miss E accompanied me to the Harbour City over the Easter break.
Here she is checking her Mums cupcake wrappers at

Great to see
