I love to potter around the web from one place to another...... following link after link each time something different takes my fancy. One such jaunt led me to Posh Tots. A store full of delicate, delightful and decadent treasures. Page after page I just kept wanting to see more and more, then I found the La Belle Au Bois Dormant Coach.
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such an enchanting bed for my little Princess to lay her pretty little head. Bedtime stories would definitely come to life when you were lying in Cinderella's carriage made from cherry wood, white oak and draped in 100% luxurious silk. Aaah, what heaven!! Sleep, my little one, sleep ...zzzzzz

The beautiful Toni at Fairy Dust has graciously let me showcase some of her products. Fairy Dust is the home of the most gorgeous & stylish stationery on the web. They carry an extensive range of personalised products ranging from Invitations for all Occasions & Thank You's to Party Supplies & Wall Art to Labels & Bag Tags. With all the luscious colour combinations and eye-catching designs, I couldn't decide which ones where my favorites, so I have decided to share a few with you.
Who doesn't love a cute elephant?? The fresh colours used in "Sweet Chick Blue" and "Elefun" really evoke a sense freshness - which is just what a new baby brings. Use them for a baby shower and follow up with a matching birth announcement......what a great idea! Notice how the baby shower invite has no picture and the birth announcement or party invite has a place set aside for a photo of your precious new bundle.
Having 3 boys, I couldn't go past the masculinity of "Baby's Wheels" (just don't tell my 10 year old that it's called Baby's Wheels). What young boy or his father wouldn't like this design. I love the fact that you can get a bag tag for the school bag with matching labels for the books - makes it easy for them to find their stuff amongst everyone else's.
I think that this would be one of my favorites, "Little Miss Oriental". I just love the cute little girls, especially the one with chopsticks in her hair. Imagine the theme that you could get happening with this....cushions on the floor, girls in wraps, sushi on pink platters and fortune cookies in the goodie box ! So far I'm only thinking about a party for me, I haven't started on ideas for a kids party...lol!! You'll find this design in "Events" under the section labelled "Tween Stationery".
Darling Toni from Fairy Dust used this precious design, "My Little Babooshka", as a birth card for my baby girl when she was born. Five months later it is STILL on the fridge and STILL getting comments. I will probably use it for Josie's 1st birthday along with the sweet lolly bag. Check out the wall print with all the babooshka's on it - the last circle contains all the details of your child's birth with her name underneath.
How cute is this for a little boy!! Long before they are into the rough and tumble stuff, take some time to appreciate the delicateness of the baby. With all the matching items, such as the bunting flags, goodie box, wall frame, invitation and thank you's, it will be a party to remember. Toni has put together a blue & bown theme party inspiration page to go with this design, "Chic Baby Boy". I just love the fact that all of the products from Fairy Dust co-ordinate with each other and the are all able to be personalised. Don't forget to check out the "Party Inspirations" sections for great ideas. Are you feeling inspired after all those luscious pictures?? I know I am..... and now I'm off to starting dreaming of my next party!!
