I can’t wait for you to see the 4th photoshoot in the Confetti Fair magazine feature series of bird inspired shoots where Life’s Little Celebration partners (who you can find on the Directory pages) collaborated to create an inspiring party setting ! I hope you’ve loved seeing the amazing party shoots which have emerged from the inspiration of a flamingo, swan and magpie and today the bright and tropical Toucan inspired 10th birthday party shoot!
Inspired by the colours of the toucan and the tropical habitat it occupies this party was about being fun and colourful but also a little bit grown up for a 10th birthday. This summer party is full of vibrant deep rich colours and splashes of tropical fruits. Lush and sophisticated this is a party that could easily be held poolside to capture that resort-style vibe.
I love the handpainted party decor, the fun and fruity partyware and amazing tropical inspired desserts!
Elizabeth from ELK prints styled and coordinated this shoot (and created the gorgeous invitation & handpainted leaf decor) and brought the colourful Toucan bird to life. Photos are by Captured by Kirri and all other fabulous Life’s Little Celebration partners involved are listed at the end of this post!

A Magpie isn’t a typical animal that comes to mind when you think of ‘baby shower’..or any party in fact…but be ready to open your mind and be surprised at how this humble bird has inspired such a gorgeous celebration!
Welcome to the 3rd shoot in the series of Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoots for the recent gorgeous Confetti Fair Magazine – each one inspired by a different bird but without featuring any images of the bird itself in the shoot. Missed the previous posts? Catch up here on the Swan shoot and Flamingo shoot
This stylish baby shower for a baby boy was based around a monochrome palette but bringing in pops of mint green and incorporating an on-trend marble pattern. I love the decor and tableware which was incorporated and the cake and desserts are nothing short of amazing!

It’s time to share the 2nd Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot for the must-read party print magazine: Confetti Fair Magazine! If you missed the Swan inspired shoot catch up here. This was part of an amazing feature inspired by 4 various birds.
This shoot was inspired by the ever popular Flamingo! Again – an image of a flamingo wasn’t to be incorporated into the styling – however I love how the colours and tropical feel of this party setting as well as all the desserts bring the Flamingo theme to life and take it to a new level! The images really do speak for themselves so get ready to be taken on a bright visual feast!

Move over Flamingo – there’s a new bird in town!
The elegant Swan was the inspiration behind this photo shoot which was a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration photoshoot for the recent issue of Confetti Fair magazine (which you can purchase online here).
The details are AMAZING and you will love the eye candy in this blog post as I share some of the photos with you!
A beautiful Swan Princess birthday party was the theme of the shoot – the only catch being that an image of a Swan could not be included in the shoot itself – however as the photos will show you – the stylists made the swan come alive through the use of feather decor and the crisp white and gold colour palette
Soft details, pretty desserts and gorgeously happy girls make this shoot beautiful and perfect party planning inspiration!

How do you combine an ice-cream party theme with a party based around character Doc Mcstuffins? It was a fun challenge for my daughters 5th Birthday party and thanks to Leanne from Dream a little Dream parties who provided me such great ideas and printables – it all came together with a “Clinic cafe” (Dessert table) and “Clinic pharmacy” (Ice-cream table) with ice-cream toppings as the “prescriptions!”
For those of you who don’t know , Doc Mcstuffins is a little girl who is a doctor to her toys. She is a great character and I enjoyed planning a party theme which wasn’t a Princess theme after the last 2 parties! Being a summer party I thought it was the perfect time to incorporate ice-cream – because what kid doesn’t love ice-cream?
At the “Clinic cafe” dessert table I included some theme related items such as “prescription cookies” (these cookies were amazing, thanks to Love Every Detail) , “extra stuffing” fairy floss, “cotton ball” marshmallows and “cough syrup” jelly along with flowers in science beaker vases.
The “Clinic pharmacy” ice-cream table had a sign with various “prescriptions” of ice-cream toppings and had ice-cream tubs reading “ice-cream cures everything’.
For the cake I wanted a Katherine Sabbath inspired cake with an ice-cream feel and JK Cake Designs did a fabulous job with adding an ice-cream cone wafer border to the bottom of the cake as well!
Kids were entertained by Doc Mcstuffins from Fairy Fun and as ALWAYS Phillipa did an amazing job of theming the games and music to Doc Mcstuffins and making sure the kids had loads of fun. This was the 3rd time I’ve used Fairy Fun and each time has been different and so weel customised to suit the theme/character.
To take home – girls were given a range of ice-cream related favours and Doc Mcstuffin favours as well as a test tube filled with jellybeans to carry on the Doc theme.
Rebekah had such a fun time at her party and it is always a joy to see the birthday child enjoying themselves along with their siblings and friends isn’t it?
For my own children’s parties I always love using Life’s Little Celebration partners which I have again done for all aspects of this party and vendor credits are listed at the bottom of this blog post.
Here is the invite which brought the two themes together thanks to Dream a Little Dream!:
