We were certainly carried away with this beautiful party Emily threw for her three sons. She fills us in: My 3 boys and I adore the movie 'UP.' It's one we watch many times and enjoy. My husband and I planned a family holiday in a few weeks time and I thought I would surprise them with a 'sweet table' … 'Adventure is out there'

Along with the usual cake, cupcakes I had beautiful hot air balloon and cloud shaped cookies, yummy chocolate brownies and a juice refreshment. Then each one of the boys has their own little scout book for journaling the trip we take. We have done this on all our holidays - such a great keepsake.

I have worked with Jennifer Sando of Jennifer Sando Photography on a few projects recently and asked her if she would be so kind to come and take some snaps before the boys tucked in to the goodies. I really wanted the table to capture 'The Spirit of Adventure' and to make it very 'UP' without being too 'merchandised.'

The cake bunting was made from hot air balloon stamps and I used some of our favourite quotes in elements on the table. And because the love that Carl and Ellie have in the movie, we have a little 'Ellie badge' for us all to wear while we travel (both from Etsy). It's simple but fun and was inexpensive and easy to create I'm sure it will be in the memory bank of the boys for years to come - the boys LOVED it.

Thanks Emily! Readers, you can see more photos on Emily's blog, White Room Events.
