Heavenly styled baby shower

There is something about a styled event that leaves a lasting impression, don’t you think?  Small details are discussed for months as guests recall moments from the big day, and the joy experienced by everyone in attendance seems to last that little bit longer, making it all worth it.

Baby showers are already memorable occasions as it is, but this particular one styled by LLC partner and Celebrate sponsor –   Sweet Heavenly Events Hire is beyond words. Collaborating with many other talented vendors from the Life’s Little Celebrations directory for the dessert buffet, flowers, backdrop and matching sweet delicacies, we love everything about it and wish we were guests!

Using many of their own props (also for hire) and working closely with their trusted vendors, the Sweet Heavenly team created a special mint, green and white theme with splashes of silver to present what can only be described as a jaw-dropping setting for this special occasion. We’re guessing inspiration came from the incredible dining table!

Details right down to the cupcake toppers ensured a talking point at every bite, making them (almost) too good to eat. Displayed on gorgeous marble and silver cake stands (also for hire) to coordinate everything beautifully.

These chocolate pyramids even mimic the marble table which is just so subtle and so clever.

Laser cut cake toppers are proving to be a popular choice for all occasions, and this one in silver is on point perfection, sitting pretty atop a frilled two tier show stopper.

Props like this wooden rocking horse and chair (also available for hire) are perfect for the theme and give the room that extra WOW factor.

Working with a stylist like Sweet Heavenly has so many advantages, but if you have the creative flair and want to give it a go yourself, their beautiful items for hire will help get you the look you’re after and provide that stylist’s touch. I love how seamlessly this whole theme has come together, and hope it has inspired your next occasion.

Air inspired baby shower

I’m excited to share with you the first of 4 shoots put together as a Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration for the latest Confetti Fair Magazine! The shoots were inspired by air, fire, water and earth – and this baby shower was inspired by “air”

It was styled by the talented Meghan of Peppermint Sunday in Melbourne who coordinated many talented Life’s Little Celebration partners to contribute to this gorgeous setting. See all vendor credits at the end of this blog post:

Meghan’s vision for the Baby Shower to relate to an “Air” theme was to include Clouds, Balloons & Kites.  To tie in the baby shower element, she brought in the “About to Pop”

Using various Life’s Little Celebration partners she created a baby shower which was pastel, fun and a bit quirky, with a pop of colour at the same time!

This baby shower cake was so pretty and unique – the colours really work so beautifully and the cake topper is so fun! “About to pop” really is a wonderful idea for a baby shower party theme!:

Magpie Inspired Baby Shower Styled shoot

A Magpie isn’t a typical animal that comes to mind when you think of ‘baby shower’..or any party in fact…but be ready to open your mind and be surprised at how this humble bird has inspired such a gorgeous celebration!

Welcome to the 3rd shoot in the series of Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoots for the recent gorgeous Confetti Fair Magazine – each one inspired by a different bird but without featuring any images of the bird itself in the shoot. Missed the previous posts? Catch up here on the Swan shoot and Flamingo shoot 

This stylish baby shower for a baby boy was based around a monochrome palette but bringing in pops of mint green and incorporating an on-trend marble pattern. I love the decor and tableware which was incorporated and the cake and desserts are nothing short of amazing!

Sit back and be inspired by the amazing ideas and styling of this baby shower styled by Jayne of Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling in Perth and photographed by Lifa Wall Photography

All vendor credits are listed at the end of this post featuring more amazing Life’s Little Celebration partners who you can find on the Directory pages!
