Sweet Style: Spring Styling Workshop

9.15.2011
I'm thrilled to share these exclusive images from Aussie dynamo Leanne of Sweet Style, from her Spring Styling Workshop.  She hosted this event in her home along with several other presenters as an opportunity to teach other moms some styling tricks and tips.  Naturally Leanne was in charge of party presentation, so she put together three gorgeous tables- for adults, for children and one for beverages.  Read on below for all the special details in her own words...

From Leanne: With styling for both the home and parties being so popular in Australia now, a friend of mine Penny from Working Mums Masterclass decided her next workshop topic would be spring styling. The session was held in my home and we had 3 presenters on the day. Jane for interior styling, Jacki did food prep and plating, and I did party and dessert table styling. 

I put together three different tables. The first was a fun kids table with a spring or garden party theme. I included little details that tied back the lady bird and flowers on the invite.  The second table was an adults table with a vintage feel to it - the colours of aqua and pink look lovely and I demonstrated how you can get different looks by using different centrepieces. We went over different ways to add small touches like ribbons, tags or twine and adding personal touches by stamping wooden cutlery and the all important backdrop.  The third table was a drinks table with a flowing sheer tablecloth, some lovely tall blossoms and vintage jars with stripy straws to drink out of.

There were 20 mums who came along so they could get tips and ideas for styling in the home and for their parties.  We talked about everything from backdrops, to centrepieces, party favours, display tricks and tips, personalising various items, jars and bottles and food.  My favourite part was getting to meet so many people who read my blog and contact me online - being able to have a chat and see how excited people are with party styling was wonderful.
