I hope you’ve enjoyed a wonderful Christmas celebration with your friends and family! Now with New Years Eve coming up soon it’s the perfect time to share more images and details from this bright and fun New Years Eve shoot featured in Issue 3 of our e-magazine! Styled by Dream a Little Dream events we absolutely LOVE the pink spin on what is normally a black/white/gold affair and love how kids were incorporated into the celebrations.
New Years Eve when you have young kids is so different to before kids – but when they get to the age where they can stay up, then it’s the perfect time to host a celebration with another family or 2 and let the kids have fun with balloons, crackers and a few treats- and that is what this party feature is all about!
Enjoy the images and get inspired for either a New Years Eve celebration or any fun party theme for 2018 starting with this bright invitation to get the par-tay happening!
Plinths have been a huge trend this year and we love the clear plinth look here filled with balloons and the way all the bright colours just pop against the white background!
The desserts continued the bright pink New Years Eve party look:
Such a fun range of balloons and party decor were used in this shoot and as you can see, the kids just went crazy for it all!:
The result…an amazing and pretty mess of balloons, confetti and crackers!

Are you looking for a classic and elegant theme for your little girl’s special occasion?
Perfect for first birthday’s or christening’s, a Pink and Gold party theme is just the right amount of pretty with a touch of sophistication, making it a popular choice for celebrations that still have more adults in attendance than children!
This theme can be as pretty or as sophisticated as you like, and popular styling items are readily available in both colours to help bring it all together. So we’ve wrapped up some inspiration and products from our Life’s Little Celebration Vendors to help with the planning, before adding your own twist to it.
If you’re looking for more party inspiration, make sure you have a browse of Issue 3 of Celebrating Little One’s magazine which has just come out! Have a browse for free, HERE.

Pink and Gold themed hire items
Pink and gold decor items aren’t items many of us would have around the house, so for a special occasion it’s a great idea to hire some stand out pieces to help bring the styling together and make an impression. Depending on the formalities of the event, this could be as simple as a sequin tablecloth for the dessert buffet, Tiffany chairs for a formal luncheon or themed props.

This is such a pretty and modern theme that is so easily adapted to playful or sophisticated – I love it! Did you find some pieces to help with your next occasion?
I don’t know too many 58 year olds who inspire 5 year old birthday parties, do you?
But with a portfolio of over 150+ careers and a killer wardrobe, it’s no surprise Barbie has and always will be an inspiration for so many young girls – so why not have a party in her honour?
But how do you choose between rock ‘n’ roll Barbie, Malibu Barbie or Mermaid Barbie?
Think like Barbie and make everything PINK of course!

Barbie party styled by Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling
I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was little. My all-time favourite was Barbie and the Rockers, which in hindsight would have made a great party theme!
If choosing just one of Barbie’s roles is too hard though, use a Barbie silhouette and stick with PINK as your main colour mixed with with white and black which will achieve the right effect – we’ve found a few ‘accessories’ to help complete the setting from vendors listed on the Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory
