Want to create your own pastel party prettiness? I’ve curated some gorgeous finds from party boutique The Little Event Company which was launched recently by Melbourne based mum Marie. This online party store is all about style and you will find beautiful partyware, tableware and decorations to browse and today I’m sharing their lovely pastel partyware:
Pastel pinwheels – The Little Event Company
Marie’s background was in the event industry for over 12 years as she explains: “I worked as a “Wedding Planner” , managing celebrity weddings and working with high-end clientele. The most expensive wedding being close to $800K…that was a crazy experience. I have never needed to order full sized, customised Bride and Groom mirrored thrones before. For a few years I dabbled into freelance work as well. Like most mumpreneurs my career goals/bucket list goals came into fruition whilst I was a full-time stay at home mum. I had reached a cross-road as my maternity leave was coming to an end. I either had to go back to work and leave my “babies” or stay at home and do what I love most – being a mum. But I also needed “me time”. Some people choose to read a book or go for a walk, I chose to start a business in an industry I absolutely love!”
I know I (and many others) can certainly relate and I’m so glad Marie did make the decision to open her party boutique and bring together gorgeous partyware such as this selection:
Pastel confetti balloon kit – The Little Event Company
Large pastel plates – The Little Event Company
Pastel pom poms – The Little Event Company
Pastel confetti – The Little Event Company
Pastel pink straws – The Little Event Company
Pink and gold tassel party horn – The Little Event Company
Pink and gold candles – The Little Event Company
Combine the above pastel pretties for a gorgeous and coordinated party look!
When you browse The Little Event Company’s website it is hard to believe it was only launched in July 2016!
Marie explains: “Prior to the launch, I had set out some KPIs for the business – I love a challenge. I am not sure if this is the norm but I was pretty chuffed when I reached my 100th sale within months of opening, and I started to have repeat customers – which was fantastic for my ego. With the highs also came a couple of confronting lows where I needed to remind myself why I started this venture to begin with. To be honest, I am not sure where this new adventure will take me and I am happy to keep it that way. Sometimes keeping it small is not always a bad thing. Seeing my girls’ faces when a shipment arrives filled with party goods is worth gold. Overall, The Little Event Company would not be in existence if it wasn’t for the belief and support of my magical family and totally selfless parents.”
I am sure many of you reading this who are also running your own small business have felt the same!
If you’re planning your kids party and are ready to shop for your party supplies, ensure you browse The Little Event Company and their selection of the pastel partyware above along with their own kids theme ranges! You’re sure to find something stylish for your next children’s event.

- Set up as much as you can the day before.
- And most importantly, allow yourself plenty of time to get ready and have a moment to relax before your guests arrive!
