Our precious littles ones are so often our sun, our moon and all of our stars….and so the theme of this party inspiration shoot was born with an on-trend monochrome colour scheme which is versatile for many of life’s celebrations.
Styled and coordinated by The Donut Wall Stylist in collaboration with a range of vendors – the setting is modern, playful and unique !
The whole setup is truly gorgeous with a host of items for the kids to play and enjoy from ball pits and slides to delicious fairy floss and donuts!
We just love this acrylic donut wall with the marble effect donuts which match the balloons and cake!
The kids would be sure to have enjoyed the fairy floss cart!:

When did cats get so on-trend? I’m not sure and although I am more of a dog person than a cat lover…as far as party themes though – I am loving this cute theme!
Not convinced at how good this theme can be styled for a kids party? You may have seen the gorgeous Kitty Cat party featured in the Celebrating Little One’s magazine Issue 2? Here is some gorgeous inspiration for you!:

A jungle or safari theme has always been a popular choice for baby showers or first birthdays, but lately we’re seeing a digression from the traditional colour palette of bright colours and cute characters to a more sophisticated and modern interpretation, which I’m just loving!
Keeping to a monochrome theme, it’s easy to build on your theme with highlights of gold or tropical fauna for a big impact just like these beautifully styled occasions by some of our talented LLC vendors.
Remember to CLICK onto any of the images below to find more details or where to purchase/order the items!:

This is one theme that can be so easily achieved with what is readily available, and to help you I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite items from some of our LLC vendors to get you started.
A great place to start when setting your theme! Choose a black and white colour palette with touches of gold, or turn those accents into show stopping starting blocks like this gorgeous Inka print and sunrise invitation from Loulou Pie Creative. These colours can then be picked up throughout your tableware and decorations for an impressive effect.

Although I am showcasing the whole dessert table setup for these gorgeous safari parties below I want to particularly highlight the gorgeous backdrop designs which would also be available for use as an invitation and other party stationery:
Monochrome Safari – style by The Sugar Topped Table. Stationery design by Style Me Gorgeous
Styling by The Little Big company. Backdrop design by Jo Studio
For a monochrome look use black and white as your base for the majority of your tableware, then add highlights of gold, blush pink or tropical fauna using some of these finds.

Black and white birthday plates – The Little Event Company
Geo dessert plates – The Party Parlour
Troppo dessert plates – Ruby Rabbit Partyware
Napkins – The Little Event Company
Tropical Jungle napkins – Ruby Rabbit Partyware
Gold geometric napkins – My Party boutique
Tropical jungle baking cups – Ruby Rabbit Partyware
Gold foil straws – Emiko Blue
Zebra Print Straws – Ruby Rabbit Partyware
Bamboo cutlery – Love The Occasion
Jumbo Confetti – Love The Occasion
Jungle themed food wrappers – Confectionately Yours
This tablecloth is perfect if you want to go with a rustic look:

If you want to go for a monochrome look then stick to the rule of using only black and white for the majority of your decorations and choose a few stand out items such as jumbo confetti balloons, cake toppers or the use of tropical foliage to bring it all together, or simply stick to all black and white if you wish!
You could also stick to a basic colour scheme of mainly white, or rustic brown and then use gold highlights in the decorations or desserts. Safari animals spray painted gold are an easy DIY to help give the dessert table a fun and modern look!
These items are perfect to decorate a safari cake and make it a stand out!:

A panda party is a really cute and unique kids party theme for a birthday party! With the release of the latest kung fu panda movie I thought this would be a fun kids party theme to blog about although I have gone with a generic panda party theme for the blog post
A panda party is one of those unique kids birthday party themes that you won’t easily find matching party decorations for. However all you need is some black and white party supplies (which are easily found especially with the monochrome look being on trend at the moment!) with a Panda balloon and panda cake/desserts – so I have curated a selection for you from businesses you can find on the Directory
Remember to CLICK on any image to be taken directly to where you can find that item!
You don’t need to keep it all black and white however. You could mix in some greenery which also would totally work in with a Panda party look!
