This & That

An aDORAble fiesta party

How lovilee is this Dora the Explorer party that was organised and brought to life by Melinda Connor from Pretty Things For You?


What Melinda had to say about the party:
I always get a little nervous when someone asks for a popular character themed party. I immediately imagine the mass produced party goodies and wonder whether my hand-made items will be sufficient.

Thankfully when a dear friend approached me to do her little sister’s Dora party, I was left to my own devices and pretty much had carte blanche. We decided on something fun, colourful and went with An aDORAble Fiesta Party.

The venue, George & Lucy’s, is one of my favourites and suited the bright colours perfectly. Everyone ooh’ed and aah’ed when they saw the candy table and even more so when they broke open their pinata cookies
