Jakobi loves AFL (Australian Rules Football). He eats, lives and breathes it and when Covid caused a lockdown, it simply wasn't going to be an issue: we were going to march on regardless!
Using a palette of green for the grass and dark blue to represent a night game, the paperie by Eninkma was created with many famous football team colours included.
We created a football oval platform from an old table. Fake grass was attached onto and ended up to be the perfect backdrop to Sugar Pop Bakery’s stunning football player cake pops. The cookies from Patty Mac were beyond amazing, with the brief to be ‘just complement the invitations’. It is safe to say that Patty not only complemented them, but created the most amazing designs that were truly amazing.
Other features of the party were football chocolates by Creative Temptations and also a nod to the amusing with Chupa Chup Melody Pops substituting in for ‘umpire whistles’ and lolly teeth being a substitute for ‘mouthguards’.
Due to Covid lockdown, the party was held at home with just family and at the end, large drink bottle canisters were filled with party treats. These, along with a football were given to each of Jakobi’s friends as we drove past and dropped them off to his friends and shared photos.
