Roll up for wonderful Kids Party invitations!

Roll up everyone! There’s a wonderful business to introduce you to tonight – Beth from Kids Prints is one of our talented members who loves to design stationery for children’s parties!


One of the most popular themes from Kids Prints is a Circus Carnival theme which I am sharing tonight with some customer images from a party using her stationery.

This is a great example about how choosing a great invite and stationery design, helps coordinate ALL the party elements and make party planing so much easier! The stationery really brings the circus theme to life and gives the party that carnival feel!









As you can see – from the carnival signs to the favour tags to the food labels – the carnival stationery was used throughout to create a fun setup which is coordinated, using the design by Kids Prints

Kids Prints offers a range of other themes also for kids parties , and you can browse their range easily on their ETSY store! We’re proud to have this talented business as part of our network!




Boy Christening Styling by Style By Luxe

I’ve recently shared some girl Christening supplies and ideas on the blog and now it is time to share a gorgeous boys Baptism by Melbourne stylist Style by Luxe!

There are some favourite boys Christening themes but it is wonderful to create a modern and new take on these themes!

Yiota from Style by Luxe created this modern take on the nautical theme!

Modernising traditional themes is another way to create new styles and concepts.  Their modern take on the nautical theme using a beautiful silver boat as the central attraction for this baptism of twin boys, ended up being such a beautiful display.

The theme was brought through from invite to personalised lollipops and to the final end product which of course was the dessert display.

Its not easy coming up with new themes and styles for every event, however Style by Luxe loves creating custom events to suit everyone’s theme, colour and concept.   At times, minimal items can still make a real impact when designing and styling a space.  Their “Angelo” blue and gold baptism with the cake being the main display is one such example.  With a beautiful floral arrangement, great props and balloons they were able to make a real impact!

Girls Christening Party Supplies

The Christening of your child is a significant event for many families, and a wonderful celebration to bring people together. I remember fondly the Christening day of each of our children…here is a photo from our youngest child’s Christening in 2017. I believe it is a milestone to be celebrated!



We’ve seen a big trend in recent years for this special occasion to have as much style as a themed birthday party, with one of the most popular trends being a pink and gold colour scheme for girls.

So here’s our finds from our clever LLC Members to help you plan your upcoming Christening for your little girl.

If you want a unique and modern take on a Dinosaur party, then you will absolutely love this collaboration shoot styled by Enchanted Party Hire in Queensland! This shoot was for Issue 5 of “Celebrating Little One’s” – our online e-magazine which you can view here!

The shoot brought together a range of Life’s Little Celebration members all collaborating to create the incredible shoot – set to inspire a new range of dinosaur parties! As you can see below…the result was AMAZING! Just look at that giant dinosaur balloon and huge slumber tent:





The black and white stationery – from the invite to the backdrop and more – really helped set the modern tone for this dinosaur party:





All the desserts were created to match the design and colour scheme and worked together to add some “raw-some” deliciousness to this dinosaur party!:




Take home favour options included these dinosaur lollipop holders, chocolate bars, cookie mixes and lolly boxes!:









The kids party table continued the modern look with the mix of black/white and copper touches along with cute dinosaur tails on the stools!




I could certainly spend a whole day relaxing in this huge tent which was a feature of this dinosaur party! Just look at the space!:




This truly was a rawsome celebration that any dinosaur lover would enjoy!

5 must-know tips when planning your child’s party cake!

Choosing your celebration cake for your kids party, Christening or baby shower shouldn’t be hard. Here are some tips to make the process a little bit easier thanks to talented baker Catie of  Sweetly Baked Perth


  1. Make a wish list

Before you meet with your baker, make sure you have an idea about what you like and what you don’t like. Meeting your baker with a list of what you love, what you like and what you would never ever want, helps with clear communication between you and your baker.

Bring with you decoration designs, invites, colour swatches etc that you’ll be using throughout your celebration to help with design ideas.

Keep in mind though, every baker has their own style and set of design skills and most won’t copy a cake exactly, especially if it is another baker’s hard work and ideas.


  1. Research

Not all cake makers are the same. Some can create amazing sugar flowers and fondant creations, while others choose to only work with buttercream.

Ask for pictures of previous work, stalk social media and read the comments, look at the cake-maker’s website and see if that particular baker makes cakes in the styles that you like. Send them through pictures of what you like, and ask if they have made something similar beforehand. They will let you know if it’s something they can do.

  1. Budget

Consider your budget! Be realistic about what you can and can’t afford.

You might really want that embellished seven-tier cake, but if it doesn’t fit in your budget, don’t be afraid to ask your baker for alternative suggestions that still give a wow factor. A good cake decorator will make helpful suggestions, while still meeting your cake dreams.

  1. Flavour

Choose something that YOU will enjoy, not what you think others will like. Most of the time, you’ll end up with leftover cake and you’ll be the one eating it! Double check with your baker if they charge extra for “premium flavours and fillings”. Not everyone does, but it is something to keep in mind.

Most bakers will also offer cake samples/tasting boxes (usually for a fee that is deducted from the total if you go ahead with the order). Take the opportunity to taste cakes and meet with the baker if you can.

  1. Something Different

Is someone attending your celebration who might not be into cake? Are you not that into cake yourself?

There are lots of alternative on offer if you’re one of those people. You could go for cupcakes, sugar cookies, baked donuts, bite size brownies, dessert cups.

All these things look and taste delicious and will still give you that awe-inspiring dessert table.


Thanks to Catie from Sweetly Baked Perth for these fantastic tips!  As you can see from the images above, her creations are gorgeous! If you’re in Perth you can get in touch with her here!
