It’s taken me nearly 2 months to catch my breath, but I’ve finally come back down to earth after our incredible Celebrate conference in August, and I’m so excited to share some moments with you over a series of posts I’ll publish over the next month, giving you all the vendor details to steal for your next event (big or small!).
After months of planning, scheduling, sourcing, coordinating and back-to-back days fuelled only by caffeine and croughnuts, this day was never going to be anything short of ah-mazing, and from all reports, it didn’t disappoint. Bringing together some incredibly talented guest speakers and industry guests, the room was a huge buzz and brought me great joy knowing we were all there to support, learn and grow our businesses and make great friends along the way.
As much as I’d like to take full credit for this event, let’s just say my attempts at floral arrangements are nothing less than dismal, so like any good event, the details were left to the experts (aka LLC Vendors)! And boy were there a few of them! So let’s get started.
Our table centrepieces
From the very beginning, I had a vibrant colour scheme in mind which I wanted brought to life with plenty of floral arrangements, balloons, gold and white accents for a fun, modern and glamorous room – not a huge request!
To help bring this all together, I worked with LLC Vendor Shelley of Paper Face Party who styled the venue and florals and who enlisted the assistance of Rochelle from A la Roch who instantly understood the brief and created our gorgeous topper signs as part of the custom table centrepieces.
How incredible are they?!
Using plywood, our theme colours and various fonts, Rochelle instantly understood the vision and delivered above and beyond – THANK YOU!!!
Cake toppers are a huge trend at the moment and Rochelle can create any design you like out of wood or acrylic – but think above and beyond using them for just cakes! Think wall art, table centrepieces like ours, name places and more. Edible images are also available to customise your wedding, engagement, birthday or special occasion.
So there you have it – your first closeup glimpse of our HUGE day and the details that made it memorable. I can’t thank you enough for your hard work on this event A La Roch!
Next on our list of details to reveal are the mini pinata’s we used on the tables (not for smashing in case you were wondering!). Stay tuned!
If there’s one trend that will never go out of style, it’s glitter. A touch of sparkle add’s the ‘special’ to special occasions if you ask me!
So it’s only fitting that our upcoming Celebrate conference in August has it’s own dose of sparkle and you can expect plenty on the day too! It’s going to be a fantastic day for industry experts to network, learn and collaborate and we hope you can join us.
Helping us add a little sparkle to the day is LLC partner and Celebrate sponsor Sam from Sugarlicious with her gorgeous range of glittered cake toppers, cupcake toppers, decals for children’s clothing, garlands, foil prints and more – if you’re a Celebrate attendee you will find a gorgeous item from Sugarlicious in your swag bag to enjoy at a future celebration!
Using card stock for her toppers, Sugarlicious has a huge range of themed products to choose from, or can work with you on designing a custom image to suit your theme using a commercial electronic cutting machine to cut any design you can think of, up to 30cm!
I love how you can coordinate an entire theme with the Sugarlicious creations like this gorgeous mermaid or first birthday theme using decals, cake and cupcake toppers and adhesive favour bag image.
Why not add an iron on transfer whilst you’re at it which make gorgeous keepsakes for first birthday’s, and perfect for the party princess to wear on the day with a fluffy tutu.
Pink and gold is obviously a popular colour combination, but Sugarlicious offers a range of 11 colours in total to choice from to suit any theme or occasion. Not just for kids’ birthday parties either, glitter toppers are a popular choice for milestone birthday’s, weddings, baby showers and Christmas.
