Kutri’s Snoopy Party

I don’t know how this happened but my little girl turned four. To celebrate this tremendous surprise, we held her a Snoopy themed. Is she a big fan of this character? Sure, though (maybe) not as big as her mommy! So you can imagine how excited I was to prepare all things Snoopy.

Quality Control by the birthday girl

I decorated the dessert table backdrop with cloud plushies, fabric kites, and of course the cardboard Snoopy dog house – both the little and big version. I also made the kite-eating tree from green pompoms and a coat rack, that stood by the table and dog shed. The table was filled with the cutest Snoopy character treats and the birthday cake was brilliant. Great job @lilchumchum, I loved it so so much!

The photobooth was that Lucy’s infamous psychiatrist stand and surprise, surprise.. it made a great frame for family pictures while blowing out the candles. It was quite a hit!
What were also a hit? Crafting Snoopy bags and watching the movie all together at @kinosaurusjakarta. It was a great day with the cousins and the little birthday girl had a blast. After all, it’s only that what you want on your kid’s party, right?

I am personally glad that the Snoopy fever in me has come out cool and strong!

TeePee Party

It was a fine day for a TeePee party on Ava Adore’s big day! To be honest this past year, I have used a lot of teepees for party decoration. That’s why I decided to go ‘out of the box’ for this unique themed party. Yep, I went with cardboard teepees for a change! I surfed the internet trying to figure out the way to go with cardboards and even though I found many images of cardboard teepees but they were profesionally made. So I tried conversing the ideal image in my head and tadaaa!

What you need: Large used cardboard boxes, glue gun, scissors, lace fabric.

How to make:

1.    Cut out four long trapezoid-shaped pieces of cardboard. Mine measured 150 cm high.
2.    Place the cardboard side by side on the floor and glue them together from top to bottom.
3.    For the last piece (and also functioning as the teepee entrance), cut one short trapezoid-shaped cardboard, and glue it in the front.
4.    Cover the top and sides of the teepee using lace fabric (or any fabric you want, really) to create the tent feel.
5.    Be free to decorate your teepee with ornaments outside and pillows and cushions inside for a comfortable hideout.

FINAL TIP: Use a quilt blanket tied up to the high ceiling to create that tent feel at the dessert table!

Laiqa Party

I was honored to decorate for Laiqa Magazines’s third anniversary. It was a Kinfolk themed party and I was so excited to add details to this unique theme. I did the table settings and designed the clothes display, which turned out quite pretty I must say.

A lot of ivy leaves were present as I used them for the clothes decorations and details behind the chairs. And I chose sack clothes because they made a huge statement on the tables. It gave that rustic feeling throughout the whole ambiance.

My most fave project was the bar as they were very much empty before I filled the island with flowers in white, green, and yellow pallate. I thought they matched the whole theme and room perfectly.
Little did I know that this was also their farewell since Laiqa Magazine is changing its name to Hijup Magazine online. So again, I was so glad to be a part of this piece of Indonesian media history.


DIY Paper Flower Cake Topper

I was asked to host a workshop by @nenenbabyshop and I decided to make Flower Paper Cake Topper. The class held at @perpus SKTR9 was nice, small, and very intimate. Each and every one of the participants has their own unique style so the results were one of a kind. See for yourself…

Here’s the DIY for our pretty paper flower cake topper:

What you need: thin card paper in colors of your choice. We went all pastel!
Two straws, scissors, hot glue.

How to make:
Big Flower:
Use the tutorials for these paper flowers I did a while back. Of course, adjust the size first and make it smaller.

Small Rolled Paper Roses:
1.    Cut out circles of paper. The bigger the circle, the bigger the rose. We cut out 10 cm diameter paper circles.
2.    Beginning from the outer part, start cutting inwards into a spiral until you reach the center of the paper. You can draw the spiral first if you want.
3.    Again starting from the outer spiral, roll up the paper as neat and tight as possible until you reach the center.
4.    Simply fold in the center part and uncoil your rose to the size you want.
5.    Glue the center part to secure and hold for a minute to let it set. Repeat until you have all the roses you need.

Cut out leaves in the green paper color and don’t forget to give them a little fold in the middle to give it a texture.

Now, all you need to do is attach the flowers and leaves on to the straw together with the paper ribbon and you can stick it on your cake!

Our Trip To Batu and Malang…

…was very refreshing. The family and I took a little vacation to seek this city in east Java. Although we have been here several times already, we always needed to go back with the kids – which meant we just had to visit all the museums for children and Batu’s amusement parks. Not just catering the kids of course, but culinary at the city is also a must! Here’s were we ended up going:

Pohon Inn

 Our place for the stay and our beautiful view!

 A good collection of animals here!

                                                 Rides and lights - best way to end the day!

Museum Satwa

                                    Reminds me of the film Night At The Museum

Predator Park

Culinary Stops
Bakso Presiden
Toko Oen

Ketan Susu
Sate Hotplet

But there’s still many more stops to explore.. Oh, can’t wait for another Batu-Malang trip soon!

My Little Pony Birthday Bash

If you have a little girl, you might be aware of the ‘return’ of these cute loving ponies and unicorns that were once a hit in the 80s. Fun and colorful as they are, it would be natural that many birthdays would take this theme, just like any other fond characters, I guess. I myself had fun decorating six parties in this theme. Here are how I managed to twist each and every one to make it different from the other.

Naila’s 5th Birthday

Rai’s 9th Birthday

Alisha’s 5th Birthday

Alesha’s 7th Birthday

Dasha’s 5th Birthday 

Adis’ 7th Birthday
