If you love hosting celebrations but don’t have the time to bring it together…or prefer to relax on the day and let someone else take care of the decor for you …then an event stylist is the perfect person to assist!
Gone are the days when event stylists were only used for weddings – now they are often used to create memorable setups at first birthdays, Christenings and baby showers – so that parents can enjoy the celebration without as much stress!
Today we are showcasing some of the recent work of one of our members – Sydney event stylist Pumpkin Carriage !
Each event they style is as unique as the child they are celebrating – they truly bring together the best vendors in Sydney to create amazing and fun setups to suit various themes!
This recent modern wild-one party for a little girl is delightful with the jungle patterns and props and cute animal figurines but all styled in such a fun and pretty way:
A Unicorn party theme continues to be popular but Pumpkin Carriage still managed to create a unique wow factor with this bright and vibrant unicorn party!:
A chef or cooking party has become a favourite in recent times as a hands-on theme and I love the various settings Pumpkin Carriage created for this kids party:
As you can see – Pumpkin Carriage really brings a theme to life not just through one dessert table but through a range of displays and settings for guests and kids to enjoy and to make the occasion truly a memorable one! Pumpkin Carriage also styles elegant baby showers, Christening events and adult celebrations!
