Do you love looking through those gorgeous pictures of ‘other peoples’ parties wondering where they sourced those perfect little glass bottles or those beautiful buntings? I do! Luckily, launching today is a shop to stop your party sourcing woes!
Inviteme have scoured the globe to uncover a superb range of products to help you create a unique celebration for that little person in your life.
Born in 2005 when graphic designer Simone Norris, a life long lover of stationary became disillusioned with the generic designs she encountered whilst searching for invitations. She set out to establish Inviteme as a brand rich in quality and uncomplicated aesthetes coupled with the technological innovation of shape-cutting.
Six years later, Simone met Amanda Edwards – a marketer with expertise in brand management and communications. Coincidentally she also owned a small businesses in the same field - children’s parties!
While still specialising in unique stationery, Inviteme now aims to stock every little thing your occasion could ever need. Brimming with party options and even a section of gifts for your little ones.
Simone and Amanda have chosen to steer clear of mass produced, licensed products, instead opting for classic, environmentally-friendly, sometimes homemade items adding the perfect touch of class, whimsy and perfection to any occasion.
to find anything from an original personalised, shape-cut invitation right through to the gorgeous take-home bag you thrust into the hands of your guests as they leave - and of course, everything little detail in between, pop over to www.inviteme.com.au.

Ivy Emerald was established in early 2008 by Janice Schmitzer, a grandmother of 3, after recognising a gap in the market for heirloom quality Christening gowns and rompers for baby girls and boys.
‘I realised there was a gap in the market on the birth of my grandson when my daughter had great difficulty in sourcing a special boy’s gown for his Baptism. My 4 daughters and 2 granddaughters had all worn the same gown but we wanted something special for a little boy.’
Ivy Emerald’s divine, hand made designer gowns are handcrafted in Australia. Gowns are made from intricate hand beaded laces and silks and can be passed on to brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, granddaughters and grandsons.
An heirloom gown is really something to be treasured. Heirlooms link generations in a deep and personal way. A grandmother’s christening gown passed down through the generations can provide insight into and a richer understanding of a family’s history.
A Christening is a special celebration to which family and close friends attend when a baby is taken for their baptismal and christened with their name. It is an important occasion – putting Christenings alongside Weddings as a lovely gathering for families. Following the ceremony can be a celebration ranging from a small gathering with cake and coffee, to a huge party with much food and entertainment.
Ivy Emerald recognises the importance of dressing your baby in exquisite dress – a Christening gown is as big a part of the traditional Christening ceremony as the bride’s dress is on her Wedding day.
Ivy Emerald now also stock an exquisite range of flower girls dresses up to age 8 . Did i mention they are also proud CZARQUE stockists

I think by now you guys know that i like to support women in business that are bringing about positive change in their own way.
This week meet one of those inspiring woman Sarah Drysdale an Australian
living in Mumbai
cornflowerblue was founded by director Sarah Drysdale, who divides her time between Australia and India. Sarah began daydreaming of cornflowerblue after chatting with girlfriends in Mumbai about the lack of pretty, girlie clothes that are affordable and in the next breath... organic. This set Sarah off on an adventure, armed with the designs for her first collection, to find who made the most beautiful organic clothes in India. Sarah soon evolved the concept of cornflowerblue to include stocking other fabulous organic and fair labels from around the world.
Sarah based the idea for cornflowerblue on the belief that no matter what business we are in, we have a responsibility to care and to know about the impact we are having on our planet and the people who live here.
cornflowerblue gives Sarah the opportunity to combine her love of fashion and design with her unique charity work and her care for the planet.
“I have witnessed first hand the environmental degradation in developing nations as they try to keep pace with the demand to produce goods for the developed world. My family has walked in the slums of India, driven through farmland craving water and in need of better farming practices and breathed the polluted air of Hong Kong and South East China.
We all have a role to play; we can all bring about change in this world simply by demanding that goods be made in people and planet friendly ways.
I am lucky to have the opportunity to show children and women in the developing world that people do care. I love educating children so they don’t end up being one of 300,000 child laborers that are estimated to work in the Indian cotton fields. I enjoy handing out business starter packs to new beauticians living in the slums as they eagerly venture out to start their new business. I love seeing children wearing organic clothes that are kind on their skin and kind on our planet.
Like most mums, I have a soft spot for fashion and I love seeing my girls dressed up. My dream is for cornflowerblue to showcase fabulous fashion so that every child can look gorgeous. The desire is in everyone’s heart to see children, women and our planet protected.
“ Please support cornflowerblue so together we can show that fashion can be stylish while being planet and people friendly.”
Cornflower Blue are also stockists of the Fabulous Nanny Pickle , Eternal Creation, Cheeky Chickies and Eco Peko.
Go to www.cornflowerblue.com.au to take a look at the many ways cornflower blue are helping to make the world a truly better place.
Its inspired reading . Shop online at Cornflower blue and $1 from every item goes towards one of the charity projects they are working on.

Breastmates was created from scratch in 2004 by Frances McInnes , who has slowly developed the brand herself over the past few years to become a specialty Baby Feeding Store
with an extensive range of products for pregnant and new mothers.
Frances noted there was a lack of resources for mothers on baby feeding issues, and that it could often be difficult for people to get advice in their situation.
Frances has taken it upon herself to fill this void. Frances is a mother who has both breast and bottle fed her two children and has been told that customers like her Non Militant Non Judgmental stance on breastfeeding. After considerable time and investment Breastmates relaunches this week as a useful resource for parents as well as a fabulous online shopping site.
Frances says she wanted her website to consist of honest information to prepare people with the truth and not unrealistically high expectations.
I can be the person that tells you yes breastfeeding is hard but if you cant do it forget the guilt trip. Breastmates will now fill the need for information on infant feeding and will provide a balance between breast and bottle feeding.
There are over 250 articles on relevant topics including videos , photographs and demonstrations contributed from an extensive network of Midwives, Specialists as well as mothers sharing their experiences. Frances hopes that she will be able to reach more people with her new website , and help them just a little bit during what can often be a stressful time.
