I love the blue and aqua shades used to style this party.  So inspiring! :-)
 Sea Urchins hanging from the ceiling made with tissue paper, I absolutely adore the pearls and star fish used to decorate the table

Whimsical 80's themed candy table















I had a blast celebrating with dear childhood friends, Allister's 40th Birthday, over the weekend.  We've been friends for ever and a day, so I was so pleased and thrilled when he asked me to help out.  Putting together the decor and candy tables was so much fun and brought back loads of good memories from my teenage years!
Cupcakes, cake and cookies on stick, toffee apples made my me. Soda and sweet collection from various vendors.
I used rubix cubes, slinky's, LP's, casette tapes, funky neon sunglasses and printed out some popular movies back in the day, as posters, and we used this as decor.
The DJ had us on the dancefloor all night with a fantastic set of 80's music, and I danced till my feet ached.
