A rainbow party theme is always popular – beautiful and bright for any children’s event! So when it came time for a special Life’s Little Celebrations collaborative shoot for our friends at Lenzo this theme was chosen with the challenge to bring a new twist on this well loved theme – view the Lenzo feature here.
Chantelle from Tiny Tots Events in Melbourne coordinated and styled the shoot and worked with many vendors from Life’s Little Celebrations (vendor credits at the end of this post) to create this truly stunning and unique rainbow party setting.
The balloons featuring in this party from the rainbow arch, to the gold confetti balloons to the gorgeous grey balloon backdrop are totally mind blowing and the work of talented Boutique Balloons in Melbourne:
I love the uniqueness of the 3D backdrop with a little girl painting a rainbow in soft colours with the ribbons flowing down !
The sweet rainbow colours work beautifully with the metallics in the shoot along with the greys/blacks showing how a rainbow does not have to be strictly only about rainbow colours:
The kids setting is just stunning with florals in various colours and a setting any child or adult would love!:
The dessert table was adorned with an array of colourful rainbow inspired desserts. Rather than going with rainbow shaped desserts , the desserts were inspired by the pastel watercolour shades of the rainbow featured in the backdrop:
This sweet invitation which coordinated with the backdrop set the scene for the event with it’s beautiful watercolour rainbow and gold foil:
The design was carried through into the sweet favour tags:
I hope this colourful rainbow party has left you with a smile on your face and feeling inspired for your next celebration you are planning!
