The Magic of a Fairy Party Theme

When it comes to little girl’s party themes, it’s fair to say that you’ll throw at least one fairy theme in your child’s early years!

Not only is it a popular theme choice for little girls, there are so many variations available including an enchanted woodland, Tinkerbell, princess fairy and whimsical, you’ll have no trouble pulling it all together and creating magic for her special day. The hardest part will be knowing when to stop!

To help get the imagination rolling, I’ve curated a selection of items from our talented LLC Directory vendors and you’ll find plenty of inspiration over on our Pinterst page as well.

Fairy Party Decorations

The options are endless for decorating your fairy theme setting, and you can find just about anything you can think of these days to help bring your vision to life. Think lots of pastels, tulle, pom poms and glitter for a modern or princess fairy theme, or spotted mushroom, hessian, woodland creatures, grass and sliced wood cuttings for serving platters if choosing a Tinkerbell or woodland style party.

Party supplies for gorgeous style

Sometimes the hardest part of organising a party is just getting started – would you agree?

With so much inspiration provided by our talented LLC directory vendors, it can get a little overwhelming if you don’t have a theme in mind, and we can all relate to changing our minds over and over after seeing so many amazing ideas on Pinterest or Instagram!

I often find working backwards in the planning process can be helpful, albeit strange! Finding inspiration in the smallest details normally left for later in the planning process like decorations, tableware or the colour of the party outfit can sometimes be just what you need to get you off the starting blocks – backwards!

So when it comes time to pulling it all together, start with where you would normally source your products, such as LLC directory partner, The Party Parlour. What I have always loved about this site is that it’s literally a one stop shop for both inspiration and all the party supplies you’ll need to execute a coordinated event.

If you’re stuck for ideas, their party packages are a great place to start, presented in styled shoots with all the required items already curated for you to add to cart to complete the look. Themes are categorised by First Birthdays, Baby Showers, Colour and themes for boys and girls for easy navigation.

If you already know the theme of your occasion and just need the supplies to pull it all together, shopping by category makes ticking off your list a breeze with everything you need from invitations to tableware, unique balloons and garlands, glassware and favours, plus they post Australia wide for added convenience. Tick, tick, tick!

Or if you’re like me and partial to falling head over heels for new paper plate designs, their new arrivals can also provide a great starting block, like these gorgeous new items from Paper Eskimo. These would be so great for a circus or ice cream party! Just pick an item and let your imagination go.

These plates are exactly the type of product that back up my suggestion of working backwards – now just to find the occasion to use them…

Regardless of having a theme or not, The Party Parlour is a great place to start – from start to finish or finish to start!

What are your thoughts on my suggestion for working backwards when planning a special occasion?

Cake decorating made easy

If you ask me, the growth of the party and events industry is a direct result of the raw talent of suppliers and just how accessible they’ve made it for everyone to create memorable occasions. You’ll find many of them on our LLC directory!

It’s a fantastic industry of support among suppliers, but the big winners are the consumers who can now turn any occasion into something special with the amount of inspiration, professionals and DIY options now available.

This was a driving force behind starting LIfe’s Little Celebrations and why we now have our first conference to look forward to, continuing to learn, inspire and grow with each other. I’m so excited for Celebrate in August and look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new. There are still tickets available so be quick to secure yours here and join us for what is set to be a fantastic day.

One of our Celebrate sponsors is a shining example of just how this industry is making gorgeous occasions accessible for everyone – because let’s face it, we can’t all bake and decorate like a pro, but we like to give it a red hot go!

Michelle Bailey own’s Custom Icing, which enables you to turn homemade or purchased cakes, cupcakes or cookies into something spectacular. Even the pros are partial to using Michelle’s edible cake images to add the extra WOW factor to a creation.

Incredible, huh?! The edible images from Custom Icing can make a huge difference to your cakes as well as cupcakes and even chocolates!

Customised cupcakes make a great impression at any occasion, and these simple discs are so simple but so effective on a plain iced cupcake with colour coordinated baking cases.

I love how Custom Icing enables just about anyone to be a master baker and turn an occasion into something special. Whether you’re handy with fondant or not, edible cake images can turn cakes into show stoppers and help bring together themes with a little creativity.

You can find out more about Custom Icing, including printing on chocolate, and shop online here.

 

Happy creating and we hope to see you at celebrate!

Decorated desserts for any occasion

A quick flick through our Pinterest boards will show you just how popular decorated cookies and cupcakes are for bringing together a theme at any occasion. Handy that they are also delicious!

Cookies are always the first to go at any of my kids parties! Children just love something that is delicious, small enough to eat and with a cute or fun image!

LLC directory partner Marlena, from Sydney’s Miss Confetti launched her business in 2013 to share her love of putting a smile on people’s faces with her baked goods, and her passion for what she does shows in each and every creation. Marlena has an extensive portfolio of cookies and cupcake themes to choose from, or can work with you on creating a special design to suit your occasion.

I bet just a few of these Frozen cookies have been made in the last couple of years!

Hoot and Hootabelle are always a toddler favourite, and details like these are sometimes all you need when teamed with coordinated block colour decorations and tableware.

Minnie Mouse is an ever popular theme and the personaliation on these cookies and matching cupcakes are too cute!

It’s often the finer details that make an impact, and I love Marlena’s use of intricate icing that add personality to each and every creation.

Miss Confetti is based in Sydney and offers both cookies and cupcakes and you can see more of her gorgeous creations on her website.

School Holidays: Kids Day Out

After a particularly long term, school holidays are nearly here for the kids to enjoy some down time. I always find that after a few days rest though, the novelty of staying at home in pyjamas all day wears off, and the requests for play dates, trips to the aquarium and movies start flowing in.

So like many parents, I’m always on the look out for new and exciting things to do during this time (that aren’t weather dependent) and particularly love it when our LLC vendors are involved!

I generally do a quick mental check list when qualifying an activity:

  1. Is it age appropriate?
  2. Will the kids enjoy it?
  3. Is there coffee?

If it’s a quick ‘yes’ to these and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, we’re in.

One event you may love to add to the calendar this school holidays is the  Kids Day Out on July 14 in Sydney. Presented by LLC vendor and Celebrate sponsor Fairy La La Land, this sounds like a great day out for us all with something for everyone – even us mums.

The talented Fairy La La Land entertainers will be keeping kids busy for a huge 5 hours on the day (if they have the energy to last that long that is!) with live shows, circus performances, Justice Crew dancers, face painting and balloon twisting. Tick, tick, tick!

Pirate Entertainer

 

 

For mums, there will be plenty of stalls to roam whilst the kids are happily kept busy – and yes, coffee! Held at the Pittwater RSL Club, it’s even worth inviting a group of friends to make a day of it and book a table for lunch too.

 

Princess Entertainer

 

The Justice Crews style dancers are always a hit – but be warned, you might see a few moves tried out at home!

Tickets are just $15 each (children under 12 months are free) which is amazing value, and can be booked through Eventbrite. For any show details you can also contact Fairy La La Land.

 

Have a great school holiday break everyone.
