American Indian 1st Birthday Celebration

An American Indian theme has become so popular this last year and I love this gorgeous party we are showcasing today as the colours are bright and vibrant and the theme has really come to life through the props and styling from Sydney based Sweet Heavenly Events Hire!

 

As Mary from Sweet Heavenly Events explains: “Vicky came to us and told us what she had in mind for her daughter Valentina’s Birthday.  We jumped at the chance of styling something unique and amazing. We got to work with our crazy and talented bunch of vendors to design something gorgeous. Using our Marble timber stands and our copper table ware it was a true masterpiece.”

Enjoy the incredible images and details and you will find all the vendor credits at the end of this post with many vendors you can find on our Directory!:

Party Essentials for a swash-bucklin’ Pirate Party

Pirate party – Kiss With Style

 

Aaarrrrgghhhh me ‘arty’s!

Grab yer eye-patches and yer parrot and let’s plan a swash-bucklin’ good time!

We’ve seen some fantastic variations of the pirate theme over the years, from your traditional skull and crossbones to more character themed parties of Tinkerbell and Captain Hook, and Jake and The Neverland Pirates more recently. But essential to any good pirate themed party are:

  1. Pirate costumes
  2. Treasure
  3. A map
  4. Pirate themed games
  5. Cake (it is a party after all!)

So to help you make your party as individual as your little pirate, here’s some great products and inspiration from our LLC vendors to get you started.

 

Pirate Party Invitations

Let ‘X’ mark the spot and tell all the other pirates exactly where they can have a swash-bucklin’ good time.

Pirate Party Decorations

Get the kids involved and go all out with props for this theme. Build a ship using cardboard boxes and sheets, turn your sandpit into a treasure hunt or build an obstacle course in the backyard. Just add bunting, flags, parrots and hey presto!

Of course styled tables and hired props don’t go astray either!

Pirate Party Tableware

Whilst your average (real) pirate probably wouldn’t worry about plates too much, to keep the kids from getting too much into character, plates, cups and napkins are advised!

Stick with the traditional red, white and black or opt for pinks and purples if it pleases! No-one wants to argue with a pirate…

Rainbow Inspired First Birthday

 

A rainbow party theme is always popular – beautiful and bright for any children’s event! So when it came time for a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaborative shoot for our friends at Lenzo this theme was chosen with the challenge to bring a new twist on this well loved theme – view the Lenzo feature here.

Chantelle from Tiny Tots Events in Melbourne coordinated and styled the shoot and worked with many vendors from Life’s Little Celebrations (vendor credits at the end of this post) to create this truly stunning and unique rainbow party setting.

The balloons featuring in this party from the rainbow arch, to the gold confetti balloons to the gorgeous grey balloon backdrop are totally mind blowing and the work of talented Boutique Balloons in Melbourne:

 

 

 

I love the uniqueness of the 3D backdrop with a little girl painting a rainbow in soft colours with the ribbons flowing down !

The sweet rainbow colours  work beautifully with the metallics in the shoot along with the greys/blacks showing how a rainbow does not have to be strictly only about rainbow colours:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The kids setting is just stunning with florals in various colours and a setting any child or adult would love!:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dessert table was adorned with an array of colourful rainbow inspired desserts. Rather than going with rainbow shaped desserts , the desserts were inspired by the pastel watercolour shades of the rainbow featured in the backdrop:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This sweet invitation which coordinated with the backdrop set the scene for the event with it’s beautiful watercolour rainbow and gold foil:

 

 

The design was carried through into the sweet favour tags:

 

 

 

I hope this colourful rainbow party has left you with a smile on your face and feeling inspired for your next celebration you are planning!
