July and August are busy months in our household. In July we celebrated Olivia’s 11th birthday with a bright birthday theme of neon pinks and coloured dots. Olivia wanted an ice cream cake as it’s her favorite and of course an abundance of lollies on the dessert table.



Olivia made the stick collage herself. Olivia collected sticks from the garden and painted them with some neon paint from TYPO.


It tied in with the theme perfectly which was spots, splashes of pink and a bit of neon.

We went out for dinner to Olivia’s favorite restaurant St Katherines in Melbourne.

George Colombaris from Masterchef Australia runs the restaurant and he just happened to be there on the night. He popped over to our table to say Happy Birthday to Olivia. We had great food and a great night.



How do you like to celebrate birthdays? Do you have them at home or do you go to a venue?
