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.

A rawsome Dinosaur party!

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!

 

Real Party: Ivy’s Ice-cream 8th birthday

With winter nearly over (yay!) it’s time for ice-cream parties to start emerging, so I thought its a fab time to share this bright and cute ice cream party by one of our Life’s Little Celebration members Ellana of SweetP Cake and Cookies for her daughter!

 

 

Ellana of SweetP Cakes and Cookies created the amazing cake , cookies and donuts for this ice-cream party and how fun is that fillable cake stand which she filled with mini balloons?!

 

 

These ice cream cookies also by SweetP Cakes and Cookies just make me smile!:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now how is this for a fun activity for an ice-cream (or any theme) party! The kids got to paint their own cookie which matched the theme!:

 

 

 

 

After all the fun, the kids got to take home some more ice-cream themed goodies with this sweet selection of items in their party bags!:

 

 

 

An ice-cream party theme is SUCH a fun theme to plan and setup for, and the cake and desserts really can be so sweet!

I hope this post inspired you! Head over to see more the amazing cake and desserts by SweetP Cakes and Cookies! She is based in Qld but posts cookies Australia wide!

Puppy party invitations

A puppy party theme can be as subtle or over the top as you can like. Using characteristics we can all associate with puppies like bones or paw prints in your invitations is a great way to set the scene, leaving the puppies as the focus for the main event.

Puppy party decorations

A Puppy party theme suits either a neutral colour scheme similar to your pup of choice, or one with pops of colour. We love the idea of an adopt a puppy station with collar making and certificates, so use this as your focus and make it fun.
