When you’re expecting a new baby – it is a special time and definitely a time to celebrate! A baby shower is a beautiful chance to pamper the mother to be and indulge her a little while celebrating the unique life about to be born!
Talented Life’s Little Celebration vendors collaborated together to put together an inspirational shoot in time for spring for anyone planning a baby shower! This shoot was styled for a special feature on Lenzo which you can view here.
These beautiful invites really set the tone for the whole shoot and I love the idea of theming a baby shower around such a floral concept as being “in full bloom”!
The whole event then came alive with the gorgeous array of flowers and decor to create a relaxing, inviting and perfectly pretty setting with the colours of the flowers working so beautifully with the rose gold touches:
The cake and desserts again exemplified the whole theme of being “in full bloom” with pretty and delicate floral details:
Handmade elements such as these handpainted artworks and gift tags add so much personal detail:
Can you believe these seed packets are actually cookies? Just stunning detail!
I love the refreshing drink station setup with the mixes of rose gold and greens:
This beautiful flower was actually handcrafted from paper – hard to believe I know! Paper flowers are the perfect way to add extra floral touches which you can keep after the celebration!
This amazing shoot was a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot specifically for Lenzo. It would not have been possible without the amazing talents of the below vendors. If you have seen something you love in the above shoot, you can source it via these vendors:

Today I am delighted to finally share with you the 2nd shoot which was a collaboration of Life’s Little Celebration partners for Confetti Fair magazine!
Life’s Little Celebration partners collaborated on 4 shoots inspired by air, water, earth and fire and this engagement dessert table shoot was inspired by “fire” with a modern and playful feel!
Lopa from The Pumpkin Carriage coordinated and styled this gorgeous suit, collaborating with a range of LLC partners whose details are below.! Photos were captured beautifully by Captured by Kirri.
The colour scheme was inspired by the colours of a blazing flame including lots of red, orange and yellow set against a clean white background to highlight the fiery colours.
The theme was brought to life with lots of red hearts and elements of fire on the table including heart shaped macarons and cookies, mini dessert cups with hearts on them whilst the cake and cupcakes represented fire!
The jumbo red balloons stand out as a fun element to this dessert table and I love the tassels created for them!:
The fiery effect on the engagement cake looks amazing:
I love the concept and 3D effect of this heart backdrop which also tied in with the invitation:
The fire theme and colours were really seen throughout the array of desserts which included everything from mini dessert cups to cupcakes, macarons, cake pops and cookies:
The final little details really made this engagement dessert table extra special!:
I hope this engagement dessert table inspired anyone planning an engagement party or anyone wanting to do a party using this colour scheme!

Look out for the water and earth shoot which I’ll be showcasing soon and if you missed the Air inspired baby shower shoot, you can catch up here!
I’m excited to share with you the first of 4 shoots put together as a Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration for the latest Confetti Fair Magazine! The shoots were inspired by air, fire, water and earth – and this baby shower was inspired by “air”
It was styled by the talented Meghan of Peppermint Sunday in Melbourne who coordinated many talented Life’s Little Celebration partners to contribute to this gorgeous setting. See all vendor credits at the end of this blog post:
Meghan’s vision for the Baby Shower to relate to an “Air” theme was to include Clouds, Balloons & Kites. To tie in the baby shower element, she brought in the “About to Pop”
Using various Life’s Little Celebration partners she created a baby shower which was pastel, fun and a bit quirky, with a pop of colour at the same time!
This baby shower cake was so pretty and unique – the colours really work so beautifully and the cake topper is so fun! “About to pop” really is a wonderful idea for a baby shower party theme!:
I just love this unique baby shower invitation with the balloon popping out of the invitation box when opened!:
I just love the mix of kite and cloud cookies in this baby shower backdrop!:
The baby shower favour packaging really is so lovely!:
