{inspiration} rapunzel party inspiration

It's no secret that we have been working on a princess range for quite some time now... we have just been so busy with bookings and filling orders that (although we would love nothing more) we simply haven't been able to give it our full attention.

One thing we are certain of is that we want our princess range to be a little different... definately not a pink and purple colour palette, and not too fluffy! 

So when our good friend Georgie asked us for some inspiration for an upcoming Rapunzel party got us thinking again!! 
image source: invitation -, macaroons - image source unknown , birthday cake (colours edited) -, outdoor setting (colours edited), jellybeans -, purple bunting -, Rapunzel in tower -, lanterns - , castle - , costume - The Candy Tree

We love the colour palette of soft purples and greens, and can imagine a gorgeous outdoor gathering with lots of texture and layering.

We'd love to hear what you think?
