Winter Wonderland party feature

You will truly feel like you’re stepping into a gorgeous winter wonderland with this party feature by Events by Ashwood (QLD) we are sharing today! This was a collaboration shoot with other Celebrate Society members and we love the gorgeous mix of whites with rose gold, the wintery touches throughout the desserts, the stunning dresses and florals and beautiful setting!

Ash explains the inspiration behind this shoot…. 

“I’ve always adored luxe Christmas style and always aim for this style in my home when decorating for the most wonderful time of the year!  I have tried traditional colours but I can never seem to resist glitter and sparkle. (What can I say.. black, white & glitter have power over me!)

So I was super excited to style this Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot!  When putting the mood board together, I instantly had a vision in my head and just ran with it.  Growing up in the UK, most years I woke up to a wonderful white Christmas and it truly did make Christmas.  Having lived in Australia now for 12 years, I must admit, swapping the snow and minus degree temperatures for sun and prawns isn’t quite the same so the opportunity to recreate a whimsical woodland Christmas setting was the perfect theme for me”

“As soon as Ellana (Sweet P Cakes & Cookies) recommended the location for our shoot, I knew it was perfect and that’s where I drew my inspiration for our color palette  moss, rose gold, silver and white. Add in five gorgeous little fairy models and voilà we have a magical setting.

Getting caught up in every little detail, I’m truly in my element, so it was nearly effortless to create a festive Christmas setting like this with decor items supplied by these amazing vendors (see below).”

The cake is truly stunning and unique!

Love the gorgeous  cookies seen above as a cookie wand, and below as a cookie tree decoration!  

Ash continues….”Getting caught up in every little detail, I’m truly in my element, so it was nearly effortless to create a festive Christmas setting like this with decor items supplied by these amazing vendors (see below).

First, I styled the Christmas tree with lots of silver & white elements, and then placed in some greenery which complimented the forest them which was our backdrop.   I think a beautiful tree skirt is the perfect finishing touch.  Then, I styled a low setting table which was set up for a Christmas feast! 

This was so much fun and I added lots of elements and layers across the table.  The shoot took place right on dusk. I also used some large silver and rose gold orbz balloons and added some ribbon so they looked like large Christmas presents.  You can style these under your Christmas tree and they are perfect for photoshoots just like this and for any theme.

Now the real magic happens! Drum roll, please.  Enter, Sienna, Ava, Ivy, Grace & Alice!  The girls had so much fun hosting this winter woodland themed Christmas, running through the forest and enjoying these stunning sweet treats.  Their magical flower crowns are perfection and they also had little foral bouquets.

I hope you enjoy looking at these stunning images captured by Anita Elliston Photography, as much I enjoyed styling this Christmas setting.

As the countdown to Christmas is on we hope this shoot inspires you and helps get you in the Christmas spirit!

Sweet Ice Cream Party

I scream, You scream, we all scream for Ice Cream. Who doesn’t love ice cream?

The team at Dream a Little Dream Events put together this sweet, pretty and super fun 7th birthday party in collaboration with other of our members of The Celebrate Society for issue 6 of our magazine  https://issuu.com/lifeslittlecelebrations/docs/celebrating_little_ones_october_201

As you can see the array of desserts brought in pops of colour and such a fun feel:

Beautiful bright decorations and features through out the party give a modern and elegant touch to the party.

A beachy, ice cream themed cake in beautiful pastel colours topped with galah cake toppers certainly was a focal point in this setup!

The attention to detail in each and every aspect of the party is stunning – from the invitations to the ice-cream bar to the decorations! 

The smiles and glistening eyes of all the children show just how much of a success this theme can be….what kid doesn’t love ice-cream right?

A Paw-fect Party

How do you make a party fun, exciting and stunning? Base it around your child’s favourite animal!

Mary from Sweet Heavenly Events Party Hire and Event Styling has made a little boy very happy with his puppy themed 5th birthday featured in Issue 6 of our magazine which you can view here.

This theme pulls away from the common themes and is an out of the box theme – that has paid off paw-fectly.

 

 

The overall look and theme of the party is all based around the wonderful colour’s our four legged friends come. With paw print balloons, platters of food ready to snack on and doggy bags ready to go.

 

 

 

 

 

The table decoration and styling is spot on. With meals and snacks being served in dog bowls and bone shaped trays to keep in with the theme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How cute are the puppy themed cookies and cupcakes? All made especially for the event and to put smiles on the attendees faces.

 

 

The personalised puppy cake is simple, modern and fun. It was definitely a show stopper and had everyone talking.

 

 

 

 

With snack cards, party hats, decorations and doggie bags all personalised for Eli’s special day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only did the attendees have snacks and games to play. They were also surprised with face painting to help them fit in with the theme. How happy and excited do all the children look? Face painting was definitely a hit with them all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The individual detail that went into each and every aspect of this party was carefully put together by a lovely group of vendors – all part of our membership The Celebrate Society!
