Scandinavian Dinner Party & Paper Crown Printable Template

Here’s a little peek at an intimate gathering we hosted at Bligh St. Bistro earlier this year, a very special Birthday dinner.

It was so nice to meet such a lovely family and it was a real treat to hear that they enjoyed their evening as much as we did. If you have a special birthday coming up definitely get in touch. We’d love to create something special for you too.
