Concrete Platters

Hey there!
I wanted to show you all a little more detail of the concrete platters I have been making.
You may have seen my last post on the Baby Shower I styled for Sweet magazine.
When I was conceptualizing I imagined some concrete mixed with rustic white timber along with a botanical vibe (if you follow me, you will know I love botanical!)
When I started looking for concrete platters/stands  I simply could not find what I wanted....sure there are lots of little businesses popping up with amazing products, but not what I envisioned.
So, you guessed it! I designed my own.
And I love them!!
And so do others!
So I am selling them through custom orders. If there is enough interest I have plans to add to this small collection...lots of cool ideas so watch this space!
So here are a few detailed pics of how they look.
I think these would be great as a prop in your kitchen...an affordable way to add concrete and be up to date with current trends.
You can use them as I have, they would suit food stylist too!

If you clicked over to my Baby Shower shoot, you would have noticed my large concrete 'B' on the backdrop. I have a lot of people asking if  I were selling these. The answer is YES! Please email me with any questions or custom orders on paperandstyleco@gmail.com
Orders can take up to 2 weeks.

Baby Shower

I am very excited to share with you a shoot I styled for Sweet Magazine edition of 'For the Boys'.
I was asked by the talented Samantha from Dunne with Style to be involved as she was the guest editor for the month.
It was an honour to be asked and I enjoyed every minute planning this shoot and working alongside Lee Bird Photography and Bella Sweets for the desserts.
I wanted to design something a little different for the baby shower invite. My theme was a very loose vintage book/paper theme...very loose meaning when I run with a theme I tend to do it very subtly. I'm not one for overdoing a particular theme...I guess I take inspiration from a theme an put my spin on it!
I made a folded 'book style' invite that was simple and sweet.




The table was set for guests outdoors, with everything they needed.


There was an array of delectable cakes and chocolate mousse pots complete with 'dirt' and leaves (chocolate crumble and mint leaves!)



I made my very own lightweight concrete letter when I founds out how much they were to buy (although it was hard to find anything like this) I love love love how it turned out, and have some interested buyers....stay tuned and keep up to date on Instagram where I update regularly about what I am working on. There may be some more coming soon.

The dining table was set with cute little monogramed apple pies with the letter 'B' for baby.





I also handmade a paper chandelier, which is super easy and looks great. Tutorial is in this issue of Sweet Magazine.



Blueberry Limonata was on the drinks menu, with San Pelligrino sparkling water.



 Thank you so much to Lee from Lee Bird Photography for the wonderful shots and Monaliz from Bella Sweets for the gorgeous desserts.

New Designs

I know its been and gone, but I did want to post here, just to update those who don't already follow me on Instagram  ( I would love if you made your way over to insta though ;))
I was fortunate enough to be included in a Mother Day giveaway organised by Candle Lit and Co. on Instagram.
I designed this card, there were chocolates, candles jewelry and other beautiful products given away to one lucky mum.
