Introducing The Little Humbugs

Created by a very talented Melbourne based Mum, Louise, The Little Humbugs range of invitations, gift cards and prints featuring whimsical images which encapsulate the innocence and joy of childhood.

The images are inspired by vintage illustration and the adventures of Louise's own children as they search for the magical fairies living under the gum tree in their garden.

The entire Little Humbugs range of invitations, gift cards and prints is available in store at Petit Atelier. For more information about hosting your child's next birthday party at Petit Atelier visit our website or call us on 03-9529 2924.
