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.
So how will you add a little sparkle to your next occasion? You can find our more about Sugarlicious and shop online here.
Today I am sharing with you some party themes on trend at the moment and ways you can decorate for these themes using some of the fun party decor by LLC partner Sugarlicious!
Gold and glitter are huge at the moment in kids and adult parties and if you love yourself a bit of glitter and shine then you will love what Sugarlicious can create!
Sugarlicious custom designs cake toppers, party decorations / accessories and foil prints so customers can create amazing parties.
Script cake toppers are very popular at the moment to place on top of both home made cakes or professional cakes. As you can see they really add that extra sparkle!:
A first birthday is always a special celebration and if you’re planning a first birthday party then Sugarlicious has some gorgeous “One” cake toppers available (cake in pic by Art of Baking) and I also love these iron on decals which can be used to customise any birthday outfit!
Sam, the owner of Sugarlicious, is a mum who has always had a passion for parties. Even before her 1st baby boy was born, she used to daydream about his birthday parties. She loves lollies, chocolate, cake, parties, the odd glass of champagne & glitter!
She has always been the friend / family member that gets excited about planning amazing parties, whether a birthday, baby shower, christening, wedding or kids backyard birthday.
She would love to help add some sparkle to your next event and as you can see Sam creates gorgeous party decor which are on trend!
Despite heading into winter there is still plenty of pineapple and flamingo items around – this is one trend that is not going away! So whether you’re planning ahead for a summer tropical party or adding some pineapple or flamingo party items to a winter party – you will love these toppers and garlands!
Most cake toppers / accessories are hand made from glitter / plain cardstock and since a commercial electronic cutting machine is utilised it allows Sugarlicious to custom cut ANY number, letter, word or image up to 30cm.
With the release of the new Alice in wonderland movie this is another popular party theme and I love these toppers that Sugarlicious has created for a fun Alice in Wonderland party theme!:
If you are looking for a special themed cake topper, party accessory, iron on glitter decal or foil print, Sugarlicious can custom design party products to suit any theme.
You may still be seeing lots of gorgeous unicorn parties floating around as this is still a loved theme at the moment! These custom items add all the finishing touches to a Unicorn party !
Planning a mexican fiesta? Another fun and popular party theme at the moment and you may have noticed all the cactus items appearing in stores and decor sites! I’m loving this cactus glitter garland by Sugarlicious:
Gold foil prints are appearing everywhere lately in kids room decor and Sugarlicious also covers this range of items! These lovely prints could also work into some party decor and then be placed in your child’s room after the party:
On a personal note I have used Sugarlicious a few times for various party items and have met Sam in person – she is down to earth, humble and dedicated to providing wonderful service to her customers! It is wonderful to know you can support a small business while also making your child’s party extra special!
Sugarlicious Parties glittery custom made decorations will make your next party stand out from the rest and cake toppers will add that WOW factor to your cake!

Today I’m sharing such a gorgeous first birthday party with a Twinkle Twinkle little star party theme by Alex of Saffy and May (Qld) for her daughter!
This is one of my favorite themes (and one I used for my son’s Baptism dessert table) and I recently blogged here sharing party supplies for a twinkle twinkle little star party theme
Alex explains the inspiration behind this first birthday party:
“I started planning for my little one’s first birthday pretty much after she was born. I didn’t have a set theme to start off but I knew I wanted pastels colours, confetti and a touch of glitter gold.
Then at around 6 months, it became clear that Sahara’s favourite lullaby was and still is twinkle twinkle little star. So I sent my mood board to Belinda from Giggles & Grace Designs and she designed the sweetest printables”:
I just love the way the star theme is carried through this first birthday dessert table from the cake topper and cake to all the desserts and accessories:
This setup is so beautiful with a custom first birthday print! An area such as this at a first birthday party is perfect for special photos:
Alex explains more about this sweet setting at the party – “when possible, I love adding to my girls’ parties handmade touches. On this occasion, I made some party horns with fringed tissue paper. I also made a star cushion which is now in Sahara’s nursery. We had a small favour table with party boxes and a selection of photos from Sahara’ s first 12 months. I also decorated a small section with balloons, star stickers , a high chair and a cute milestone poster for Sahara and family to have photos taken”
Personalised and handmade touches make any birthday party extra special but moreso for that memorable first birthday party!
The little queen of the party herself – such a joyful smile and her cute first birthday outfit is styled to match her gorgeous party!:

Move over Flamingo – there’s a new bird in town!
The elegant Swan was the inspiration behind this photo shoot which was a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration photoshoot for the recent issue of Confetti Fair magazine (which you can purchase online here).
The details are AMAZING and you will love the eye candy in this blog post as I share some of the photos with you!
A beautiful Swan Princess birthday party was the theme of the shoot – the only catch being that an image of a Swan could not be included in the shoot itself – however as the photos will show you – the stylists made the swan come alive through the use of feather decor and the crisp white and gold colour palette
Soft details, pretty desserts and gorgeously happy girls make this shoot beautiful and perfect party planning inspiration!
