Use of black in kid's rooms

Black in kid's rooms has been pretty "on trend" (note to self - I do not like that term!) for a while now.

I thought i'd post some pics of kid's rooms that have inspired me. So lovely and cosy with black and pops of dusky colours. 

Some of the blacks are chalkboard paint - such a brilliant idea!

This one I don't have a link to  - sorry -  (anyone??)
So lovely with the black wardrobe and grey starry wallpaper ..

 This one is from Vanessa Pouzet:

is that black or is it grey? I think it might be the lighting playing tricks sometimes ..

A Very Fruity, Flamingoey, Tropical 9th Birthday Party

Gorgeous Una turned 9 last week and she had a little party at the local swimming pool with 4 friends from school. I have been collecting Pinterest images for aggggges to inspire us, but also wanted to keep it simple, low key and casual.

I made a double layer chocolate cake, with thick chocolate icing and decorated it with toblerone, orange paper balls and pink flamingoes. I ordered the name candles off ali express (allow at least 2 month for anything off ali - it takes ages). 

The plastic table cover in yellow chevron and leis were from k-mart, the pineapple cups (a major hit with the girls) were off ebay, cake stand and floral cups from Lark.

 Valentine's Day is coming soon. Only a couple of weeks away.
So, in honour of V day here are some pretty heart shapes and things to hopefully inspire you!

The above picture is from The House That Lars Built. 

These donuts. Donuts = yum. Heart shaped donuts = double yum!

Cool thumb print heart via etsy. This would be pretty easy to whip up yourself. Although, possibly not as pretty.
