Sweet Treats

We have all had our thinking caps on in the office this week, trying to come up with some new and different ideas for treats to go on our sweetie tables. With so much inspiration from our American neighbours we have managed to suggest a number of delicious treats to our fantastic supplier utterly charming cakes and are all very much looking forward to trying them out next week! 

I am going to give you a sneak preview of a couple of our ideas in this blog post, and if you have any further suggestions yourself i would love to hear from you!

Simple but delicious chocolate covered pretzel sticks, can be decorated in many ways to fit the theme of your party or sweetie table

Ahoy!




Last week I spent a few frantic days collecting as many ship props as I could find in order to style a photo shoot on board the HMSBelfast. The ship is permanently docked on the River Thames just south of Tower Bridge, with excellent transport links via London Bridge station which is just a short minute walk away.

We styled a nautical shoot, but of course had to be respectful of the ship, and be careful not to style the party pirate or sailor themed but instead channel a rustic, grand ship feel, to be in keeping with the ships heritage.

We set up a lovely little tea table using our own unique printables, along with our melamine plates and personalised accessories. We also set up a sweetie display using nautical themed treats and various props. The photo shoot was captured beautifully by Claudia Rose Carter.

Nautical sweetie display, all of our detail from the printables to the treats are tailored and personalised to your specific theme.

Pretty Printables...


We are thrilled to showcase a couple of our new printables for you that were designed last week. 

We have focused on some little boys parties this week including a fun 'cowboys and indian' theme and a 'nautical' theme party, which we used for our photoshoot this week on the HMSBelfast, in central London. 


I absolutely love this cowboy and indian theme, I have already started plannng a quote for this party with the hopes that someone will book it soon... such a rustic, different theme and suitable for boys and girls ... the party games would be great!
Our nautical themed printables were created for out photoshoot on HMSBelfast last week, make sure to check our facebook page and next blog entry for our shoot photos.

We Love Balloons...



We love using balloons at our parties, and I personally love researching new and different ideas on how to decorate the balloons! I personally have a huge folder full to the brim of photos and inspiration so I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you to inspire you to use these all time party favourites!


I love these chalk board balloons. A very quick and simple way to personalise your party! Of course black and white feels slightly more grown up, by adding colour to the balloons or ink, this could be brilliant for any childs party

Confetti filled balloons! A firm favourite of mine and very simple to do! Just make sure the balloons you choose are a pale colour so that you can see the confetti clearly.
Transparent balloons are a lot of fun, and by attaching streamers/ribbons or tassle you can tailor them to any theme or party. 
Here at Les Enfants we absolutely love using our 3ft balloons. Attaching fringing, whether its short tassles or floor length, it really does add some extra charm. 
I love this idea from, it would look brilliant in a tall room to have hundreds of helium filled balloons with this confetti detail attached. 
These ice cream balloons are so incredibly pretty. We created our own for our ice cream parlour party and they really do look very pretty indeed! 
I hope you are all having a lovely week and thank you again for all of our brand new likers, we really appreciate all of your support!

Speak soon,
