Meet Anna



 HI I’m Anna.

Welcome to Mama Bear’s Kitchen. I am so glad you are visiting. 

This is a place to gather beauty and inspiration, to share with you my love for creating unique vintage styled dessert tables and celebrations. I am a passionate collector of unusual vintage pieces and pretty tea sets and am always on the lookout for my next fabulous prop. I find great joy in bringing together themed dessert tables with a distinctly vintage flair.

I design intimate high tea parties, vintage birthday celebrations, bridal showers and perhaps my favourite of all, baby showers. 

I have a heart to honour and encourage pregnant women who are on the cusp of the most wonderful season of their lives – motherhood. 

My husband and I have nine children. In 2002 our precious fourth child, our son Noah, died when he was only 11 days old. You can read his story HERE. We homeschool our family on a beautiful two acre property near the beach in sunny Australia. Our enormous life is full to the brim with noise, laughter, fun times and hard work. In amongst it all, I still don’t know how, I manage snippets of time to create beauty to share with family, friends and others. We are blessed indeed.

About me FINAL COPY 2

I have always been a home baker and in recent years have discovered the beauty of edible art. I love to incorporate decorated cakes, cupcakes and biscuits into all of my dessert tables. I am always playing around with new recipes and cupcake flavours in particular. Here you will find my favourite recipes and some tips and tricks to create your own vintage party.

In Mama Bear’s Kitchen I seek to share my love of all things sweet and vintage. I hope you find inspiration to create your own marvellous tea party or motivation to gather a few bits and pieces together to transform your next celebration into something special.

I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop me a line and say hello. 

The tea pot is always brewing.
