There’s no doubt that the most loved kids party theme of 2017 (and still so popular heading into 2018!) is a Unicorn party theme.
It was this theme that was the inspiration behind our Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration photoshoot put together especially for the launch issue of Confetti Fair magazine.
This shoot was styled and coordinated beautifully by Saffy & May in Brisbane who coordinated and sourced items from Life’s Little Celebration members to put together the most prettiest of settings in pastels with a touch of gold!
The tulle tablecloths used throughout created such a dreamy feel and the balloon arch (another popular party item lately!) added stunning pops of colour along with the gorgeous backdrop and fun unicorn pinata!
The desserts surounding the gorgeous unicorn cake included vanilla and strawberry mousse, donuts, cupcakes and cookies.
The sweet children’s table decor included mini balloon pops and adorable star and cloud rainbow wands. At each place setting was a unicorn themed cookie mix bottle and each chair was adorned with unicorn hats and pastel tassels.
Unicorn themed partyware was used with stunning unicorn plates and napkins mixed with gold plates and ombre pink and gold cups.
In addition to the dreamy unicorn favour boxes and wands each guest took home a beautiful unicorn crown headband!
This setup truly showcases the quality and variety of items you can find from members of Life’s Little Celebrations and I credit Saffy and May for pulling it all together perfectly!

A fruity theme is always popular in Summer…and there has been many a bright tutti frutti party showcased online – so for this summery setup for the 3rd issue of Celebrating Little One’s e-magazine , stylists Mooi. Co decided on more of a pastel colour scheme with fruits of lemons, and limes and other summery fruits.
The result is a delightful setup with a relaxed table for the kids, lemonade stand and dessert table filled with desserts inspired by summery fruits! I love the mix of colours of yellows, peach, mint green and pinks for a fruity kids party theme!
This was a collaboration of Life’s Little Celebration members and you can find the talented vendor list at the end of this blog post!

I hope you’ve enjoyed a wonderful Christmas celebration with your friends and family! Now with New Years Eve coming up soon it’s the perfect time to share more images and details from this bright and fun New Years Eve shoot featured in Issue 3 of our e-magazine! Styled by Dream a Little Dream events we absolutely LOVE the pink spin on what is normally a black/white/gold affair and love how kids were incorporated into the celebrations.
New Years Eve when you have young kids is so different to before kids – but when they get to the age where they can stay up, then it’s the perfect time to host a celebration with another family or 2 and let the kids have fun with balloons, crackers and a few treats- and that is what this party feature is all about!
Enjoy the images and get inspired for either a New Years Eve celebration or any fun party theme for 2018 starting with this bright invitation to get the par-tay happening!
Plinths have been a huge trend this year and we love the clear plinth look here filled with balloons and the way all the bright colours just pop against the white background!
The desserts continued the bright pink New Years Eve party look:
Such a fun range of balloons and party decor were used in this shoot and as you can see, the kids just went crazy for it all!:
The result…an amazing and pretty mess of balloons, confetti and crackers!

Have you noticed how much harder it is to get creative with kid’s parties the older they get?
Much to my delight, the popular disco theme is making a comeback and is a popular choice for both parents and kids alike – either at home, Scout’s hall or purpose built party venue. They remind me of the school discos we loved attending as kids ourselves.
The best part? The inner stylist in us can still be let loose to decorate and style up a storm!
So here’s our finds for pulling together a stylish and fun-filled disco party with the help of a few of our LLC Vendors starting with of course the best disco kids party entertainment out there – Bop til you Drop!:
