Party Directory Page – Listing Opportunity

Life’s Little Celebrations is a blog for mum’s in the midst of their party planning – to provide them inspiration and assistance to save them time and stress!

However besides my blog posts I’d love to provide a page on my blog which lists some lovely suppliers of party items – whether it be party decor, handmade items, cake/cupake suppliers, invitation/graphic designers or event stylists! This is something that I would definitely find helpful myself and I am sure many other mums would as well.

If you would like the opportunity to be listed in this directory for a small fee/year please contact me at lifeslittlec@gmail.com.

I hope that along with my blog posts this page will be one that mum’s can easily drop into to source some lovely items and suppliers!

Paris Inspired Theme

Ooh la la – it’s time for a girly Parisian party! Think poodles, Eiffel towers, feathers & fluffiness and lots of pink! You can go stripes and polka dots, or elegant options such as damask and chevron designs!

However there are some gorgeous Paris theme parties which have been styled in red/blue/white and other colour combinations so let your imagination run wild!  I’ve based this blog post however on the common colour combination of pink/white/black.

You could theme this around poodles, pampering, travel or Paris and France in general and I am sure your little girl will enjoy planning this party with you if she is old enough!

I hope you enjoy this selection of Paris inspired items! For a full range of items and suggestions for your party please contact me regarding my Custom online party inspiration packs: lifeslittlec@gmail.com

Lego Party Supplies Shopping guide

Most of us grew up playing with LEGO and it’s wonderful to see that it is just as loved by our little one’s too! It is a popular party theme and a fun one to put together.

You can easily use your child’s own lego collection to put together decorations and centrepieces for this party theme as well as fun activity stations for all the kids to play lego during the party. View my PINTEREST board for lots of party ideas for a lego party.

Given that lego pieces really are just made up of rectangles and circles it also makes it easy to make your own lego inspired decorations and blocks for this party as well!

Go for bright colours for this theme, and I’ve included lots of polka dot supplies as it’s a pattern which suits a lego party.

I hope you enjoy the lego party supplies I’ve included!:

What’s keeping me busy (besides motherhood!)

I thought I’d share a post on some of the things I’m working on to share some of the exciting and new things happening via Life’s Little Celebrations.

Since launching my new services where I offer online inspiration boards & online party planning help & sourcing of items I’ve been busy with a few different projects for various mum’s after different party themes!

It all started when a mum approached me after I had started my blog (and before I offered this new service). She was impressed with the items I was finding and my style and enlisted my help in finding unique items for an upcoming celebration as she was quite busy herself at the time. The service I offered her is my “Complete Custom Styling Pack” which follows the format of the blog (but offers more ideas), completly customised to your theme, colours, requirements, budget etc. It includes hyperlinks for easy shopping too!

Once the party is held I can’t wait to share it with you! This was her feedback:

“Tanya, you did an EXEMPLARY job and I thank you, you are very very good, I
appreciate the time saved for me on this and I definitely think you should
do this on a professional basis.

Sourcing and research takes time and you did a wonderful job I can’t thank
you enough, you took my theme, my pitch, understood it and came back with
a great moodboard full of ideas which I can now quickly source.  Visual
merchandising and theming is a knack which doesn’t come to many people and
you certainly have it and shared my vision.

This is what encouraged me to offer these services to all of you!

I recently completed an inspiration board for a Robot theme. This mum had already found lots of unique finds which she shared with me on Pinterest but wanted to see what else I could source! Her feedback:

“Wow Tanya, thanks so much!
 You’ve found a lot of stuff I didn’t find, some of which I’ll definitely use. Fabulous!
 If you set up reviews on your FB page, I’d be happy to leave a positive review about your service. “

Fred Yumbots Robot Cupcake holders - Gigglepot Kids

Currently I am working on some Alice in Wonderland theme finds for an inspiration board, such a fun theme!

Mad Tea Party pocket watch necklace - Kaboodle Designs

I am also putting together an inspiration board for a Construction theme party with a unique colour palette.

Construction party - Juicy Bits Blog

Besides inspiration boards I also offer a “Complete Party To you” package. This is where I not only provide detailed sourcing of ideas and items for the party but also arrange to purchase all the items for you and send them to you! I am putting this together for a lovely Pirate theme party coming up.

Personalised pirate treasure map printable - Easy Invitations

I’ll also be putting together a Complete Custom Styling pack for a mum planning a twins Christening based on a Noah’s Ark theme – so lovely =)

Two by Two party - Lullaby Lubbock blog

On top of all this watch out for some upcoming contributions in the next issues of the My Little Jedi magazine, Tickle the Imagination magazine and the Bird’s Party magazine (links will take you to the current issues)!

So as you can see, I am busy busy busy! Each of these services as well as my blog posts take alot of time to put together. I have my own daughter’s 1st birthday in November and then there is Christmas and a Baby sprinkle for my sister!

Doing my best to stay on top of things while also making sure I spend lots of time with my own little daughter! =) This often means late nights (as I’m sure most of you know all too well about!!).

However it’s a joy to be able to help other mum’s in celebrating their little ones =)

Please contact me if you are interested in any of my services. As mentioned above I offer everything from Inspiration boards, complete custom styling packs to a complete party to you service. These are all offered online and all the information is sent directly to your inbox (unless you choose the “complete party to you” where products are purchased and also shipped to you). I am also offering blog sponsership packages with 2 businesses signed up already, so feel free to contact me regarding this as well!
