With breathtaking views over Melbourne, Mon Bijou offers a wedding and event venue that is stylish and modern.  By day with views over buildings old and new, or by night with the twinkling lights as your backdrop, Mon Bijou is the perfect place to savour a cocktail with two of my favourite flavours – white chocolate and passionfruit. Live the high life and indulge in this most decadent of cocktails!

30ml Cariel Vanilla Vodka
20ml JC Passionfruit Liqueur
15ml Passionfruit Puree
15ml JC White Choc Liqueur
30ml Pink Grapefruit Juice
10ml Egg White

Add all the ingredients to a Boston tin and shake vigorously. Double strain into a chilled white chocolate rimmed Martini glass.

DIY Chalkboard Table Numbers

Table numbers are an often overlooked detail of your reception decor. But by the time your thoughts turn to those finishing touches you might have run out of time (or steam!) to do anything overly complicated.

Here is a ridiculously simple but cute way to jazz up store-bought mini chalkboards.

1. Simply apply fabric tape to the chalkboard frame and trim to size.

2. Using a liquid chalk pen, draw a loopy number, then fill out the vertical strokes and add circles on the ends for a whimsical faux calligraphy. Set aside to allow the chalk to dry before turning over and repeating on the other side.

That’s it! You can substitute washi tape for the fabric tape and use any colours and patterns to suit your wedding style. Use the other side either to repeat the table number or include the menu or a special welcome message to your guests.
