Winter Wonderland party feature

You will truly feel like you’re stepping into a gorgeous winter wonderland with this party feature by Events by Ashwood (QLD) we are sharing today! This was a collaboration shoot with other Celebrate Society members and we love the gorgeous mix of whites with rose gold, the wintery touches throughout the desserts, the stunning dresses and florals and beautiful setting!

Ash explains the inspiration behind this shoot…. 

“I’ve always adored luxe Christmas style and always aim for this style in my home when decorating for the most wonderful time of the year!  I have tried traditional colours but I can never seem to resist glitter and sparkle. (What can I say.. black, white & glitter have power over me!)

So I was super excited to style this Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot!  When putting the mood board together, I instantly had a vision in my head and just ran with it.  Growing up in the UK, most years I woke up to a wonderful white Christmas and it truly did make Christmas.  Having lived in Australia now for 12 years, I must admit, swapping the snow and minus degree temperatures for sun and prawns isn’t quite the same so the opportunity to recreate a whimsical woodland Christmas setting was the perfect theme for me”

“As soon as Ellana (Sweet P Cakes & Cookies) recommended the location for our shoot, I knew it was perfect and that’s where I drew my inspiration for our color palette  moss, rose gold, silver and white. Add in five gorgeous little fairy models and voilà we have a magical setting.

Getting caught up in every little detail, I’m truly in my element, so it was nearly effortless to create a festive Christmas setting like this with decor items supplied by these amazing vendors (see below).”

The cake is truly stunning and unique!

Love the gorgeous  cookies seen above as a cookie wand, and below as a cookie tree decoration!  

Ash continues….”Getting caught up in every little detail, I’m truly in my element, so it was nearly effortless to create a festive Christmas setting like this with decor items supplied by these amazing vendors (see below).

First, I styled the Christmas tree with lots of silver & white elements, and then placed in some greenery which complimented the forest them which was our backdrop.   I think a beautiful tree skirt is the perfect finishing touch.  Then, I styled a low setting table which was set up for a Christmas feast! 

This was so much fun and I added lots of elements and layers across the table.  The shoot took place right on dusk. I also used some large silver and rose gold orbz balloons and added some ribbon so they looked like large Christmas presents.  You can style these under your Christmas tree and they are perfect for photoshoots just like this and for any theme.

Now the real magic happens! Drum roll, please.  Enter, Sienna, Ava, Ivy, Grace & Alice!  The girls had so much fun hosting this winter woodland themed Christmas, running through the forest and enjoying these stunning sweet treats.  Their magical flower crowns are perfection and they also had little foral bouquets.

I hope you enjoy looking at these stunning images captured by Anita Elliston Photography, as much I enjoyed styling this Christmas setting.

As the countdown to Christmas is on we hope this shoot inspires you and helps get you in the Christmas spirit!

Gorgeous kids Christmas celebration!

Today I am delighted to share a gorgeous kids Christmas celebration put together by Illume Partyware and other members of The Celebrate Society (doors close in a week!)

 

 

They have broken from tradition and mixed pastels with metallic to result in a stylish, modern, Christmas affair!

 

 

Inspired by the luxury of mixing colour matching partyware they embraced Christmas through symbols of reindeers, stars and snowflakes and messages of peace, love and happiness.

All the elements melted together beautifully lighting up little faces and bringing the magic of Christmas alive!

 

As you can see, the result is such a sparkly gorgeous Christmas party and a real inspiration for setting up your own special Christmas kids party or table for the kids on Christmas day!

Nutcracker Christmas Party

With Christmas only a few weeks away now is the time to start getting inspired for your Christmas celebrations and this nutcracker party by The Party Parlour featured in our Issue 6 of Celebrating Little One’s e-magazine is sure to inspire! This was a collaboration of some of our Celebrate Society Members (membership closes Nov 30, click here to join)

 

 

So much detail and organisation went into this event and as you can see from the photos below, the suppliers (all Celebrate Society members!) did an amazing job bringing it all together. The photos are a whimsical glimpse of the party.

 

 

The detail that has gone into the table setting is perfect. With matching nut cracker bon bons and cookies the table shows elegance and fun all in one.

 

 

 

The white backgrounds and props are beautifully offset with the pops of colour and decoration, giving a magical and enchanting feel to the party.

 

 

 

 

A simple and elegant cake table became a modern take on the traditional Christmas cake.

Fresh flowers and macarons topped the cake, tying it together with the table decorations.

Crowns, cookies and individual place settings for each guest making each and every one feel special and important. The bon bons tied in effortlessly with the handmade cookies and create something fun for the kids!

 

 

 

Gifts wrapped in paper matching the theme made for the perfect table decorations. The best part is that you can use gifts that you are planning to give at Christmas and the wrapping is already done.

 

 

The Christmas Nutcracker theme continued through into the drinks and desserts, giving each guest their own feeling of being a beautiful ballerina or soldier. The decorations on each item are detailed and perfectly presented.

 

 

 

 

The Nutcracker party bags at this party have surely put smiles on the children’s faces. Individual party favours swinging on the back of each guests chair ready and waiting for them. This is a nice idea for a Christmas party as you can fill the bags with activities and craft for the kids to do during Christmas lunch.

 

 

 

 

The little girls were also matched to the theme in tutus to suit the Nutcracker theme:

 

 

 

 

 

This whimsical Christmas party has been beautifully put together and organised by a group of our amazing Celebrate Society members (doors close November 30th to our membership!)

Each vendor put much time and effort into putting this together and pulling it off. Check out below for their details and items that they supplied.

I’m dreaming of a pink Christmas!

When we think of Christmas, do the colours red and green always pop into your head? These days, ANY colour scheme can work including a pretty pink colour scheme which We Create used for this gorgeous Christmas shoot for Issue 3 of Celebrating Little One’s Magazine (it’s free to read HERE)

The little kids feasted on an array of desserts including donuts, macarons, mini trifles, eclairs and of course a gorgeous cake! I love the touches of rose gold and the pretty table setting!
