Today I am delighted to share with you my daughter Leah’s 1st birthday – a floral flamingo themed party! You may have already seen this on social media as it was from February however I have finally got around to blog about it now that the whirlwind of the Celebrate conference day is over (which by the way went really fabulous!).
I love a flamingo theme but rather than go tropical, I decided to go with something very floral and pretty as I wanted to create something unique and special for Leah’s first birthday!
Unlike with my first child where I probably planned everything over 9 months…Leah’s party was planned more in the last 2 months before her party!
However everything really came together on the day – from the table decal on the acrylic table…to those amazing balloons…and that flamingo cake! Leah just looked SO adorable (if I do say so myself!) in her cute dress and flamingo party hat!! She was so happy and enjoyed all the attention and balloons!
I chose all vendors from the Life’s Little Celebrations network for the party and Shelley from Paperface Party styled it all on the day so beautifully along with styling the florals! The balloons by Party Splendour framed the whole setup beautifully. Vanessa Verchiani photography was amazing at capturing the setup AND photos of family and friends and Leah which we valued so much. I absolutely loved the way the table decal designed by Eve and Co (printed and applied by Jo’s Signs by Design) looked on the acrylic table from Sweet Heavenly Events – and I wished I could have taken it home with me to put in her room!
At the end of this post you will find all the links to the vendors involved:
Do you think first birthday parties are a bit OTT these days? I know some people do….but my view?
It’s their first birthday! It IS special! No they won’t remember it…and no they won’t care! And no it doesn’t matter HOW you celebrate it…do a small bbq, do a big bash, do an afternoon tea, do a garden party….anything and everything is fine! Just make sure you do celebrate it because a first birthday is not only a celebration of your child…it is a celebration of all you as parents have enjoyed and learnt and overcome in the first 12 months with a new baby. Lets not underestimate the joys and the challenges you as parents have experienced in the first 12 months..adjusting to new sleep patterns, recovering from pregnancy etc. So take the time to celebrate your child AND what YOU as parents have achieved!
I absolutely love being creative in this way and it isn’t something I get to do often – so I really enjoyed being able to put this together! My other kids will have much simpler parties this year as Leah’s first birthday was the larger celebration. So I was certainly happy to indulge a little bit for Leah’s party. So my advice? Don’t feel guilty whether you’re doing something big OR small for your child’s party! You know your true intentions and heart and what is best for your family…so celebrate it how you want to!
Now…back to the party pics!
I love this shot of Leah in front of the setup. We ensured we got some photos before the party started and she got tired – which is a great tip for any first birthday party to ensure you get some photos of a happy birthday child!
This high chair was a last minute decision…and one I am SO glad I made! It really made such a sweet spot for photos of Leah!
The flamingo cake by Quincy Lane was something special! I wanted something unique and I love the brushstrokes and the flamingo head cake topper (by Eve and Co)
Desserts included flamingo cookies, flamingo macarons, lollipops and meringue kisses. The details were really incredible and full credit goes to the talented vendors:
All the florals on the day were also by Paper Face Party and the colours were just stunning! Yes they were all real but with spray painted copper leaves!
The kids table with the pink tiffany chairs from Tiny Tots Toy Hire and balloons from Party Splendour looked amazingly cute!:
I found the most perfect floral flamingo partyware at Ruby Rabbit Partyware which is where I sourced all the partyware for this party including the lovely tablecloths for the kids table (I always find it hard to find tablecloths which are disposable but still still cute…I know, first world problems!)
We just had to use this Flamingo prop also from Tiny Tots Toy Hire but of course dressed her up in a floral crown by Paperface Party!:
I chose to have a milestone board created for Leah and kept it small so I could also display it in her room after the party…and Eve & Co designed a gorgeous board with rose gold foil and such pretty details.
For favours I used these gorgeous rose gold favour bags from Ruby Rabbit Partyware finished off with favour tags by Eve and Co:
A few other details by Eve and Co which cannot go without sharing – starting with the invitation design which brought the theme of the floral flamingo to life!
It was carried through into all the details as seen above such as the table decal, cake topper and the party hat for Leah which is also now displayed in her room:
A few other flamingo touches at the party I couldn’t resist like this jumbo flamingo balloon from Party Splendour, and fun flamingo glasses for the kids from Ruby Rabbit partyware:
For entertainment at the party we had a ball pit from Tiny Tots Toy Hire and a puppet show which included a flamingo puppet! It was great fun!
We truly enjoyed celebrating Leah and this milestone! Being our 4th child we’ve been able to relax more as parents with a newborn and thanks to her being such a easy going baby…it truly was SUCH an enjoyable first 12 months with Leah.

Thanks for taking the time to view my daughters first birthday party! I hope it inspires your own flamingo or first birthday party planning!
Hot air balloon parties are all the craze but this year Melbourne event stylists Willow and Duck took this theme to new heights.
They took a creative risk and together with some amazing vendors created a dessert table which mimicked a hot air balloon.
The talented ladies used printed panels from Edge House Design to create the basket , a giant balloon sphere made up of mini balloons (by Belle Balloons) and an amazing flame cake (by Frosted by Nicci). The result was epic and created a tiz on social media. Here is what the ladies from Willow and Duck had to say about this event:
How did you come up with the idea?
We both love to think outside the box. When our client approached us and asked us to get creative with the theme we jumped at the opportunity. We worked with Astons mum to come up with a concept that suited her budget and style.
What inspired you to take this creative risk?
We have seen many hot air balloon events done and done very well by our colleagues.
We wanted to do something that had not been done before with this theme.
Staying with a pastel colour pallet to keep it kiddie, we decided to transform the entire dessert table into a hot air balloon.
As the function was outdoors, we utilised the marquee to suspend the balloon sphere.
It all came together so easily thanks and our amazing vendors who jumped right onboard when we discussed our ideas!
What recommendations do you have for other people wanting to take a creative risk?
Planning is key.
Pam is great with a sketch pad so we were able to visualise the styling and make changes where we felt necessary well before the event.
This kept the costs down for the client and allowed us to clearly articulate to our vendors exactly what we were after.
What did you find challenging about this concept?
Our biggest fear was that the end product wouldn’t transcribe on social media. The outcome was the complete opposite!
We were worried that people would see the table and not realise that it was a hot air balloon or that the cake was the flame. It was a big creative risk for us but one well worth taking!
What did you love most about this theme?
Everything! From the colours in the balloon sphere to the amazing cake under the gorgeous marquee- the entire set up was perfect.
Our proudest moment was seeing our clients face when she entered the space.
Ultimately, the greatest gratification for us is knowing that we delivered what the client was after and more.
And here are the talented ladies themselves – Pam and Mel of Willow and Duck who creatively dreamed up and executed this amazing setup!:
