I can finally blog about Rebekah’s 4th birthday party which was recently shared on Kara’s Party Ideas here.
As always when planning this party I used only vendors from the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory and the main reason I share these party photos is to credit them and share their items so if you are looking for anything I’ve used you know where to find it!
All photos are by Nikki from Nikki Fitt Photography. Nikki always captures such beautiful shots and is great with kids. Despite also being 34 weeks pregnant on the day Nikki still went over and above to capture all the details and moments we wanted which I have now made into a photobook for Rebekah and us to enjoy to remember her birthday.
Rebekah being a typical 4 year old girl wanted a Princess party and pink and gold was an obvious colour choice! We started with these watercolour pink/gold invitations from Jo Studio which I thought were so pretty and I used the matching printables throughout the party:
Being 34 weeks pregnant with #3 I wanted to keep the dessert table simple so I could easily set the desserts out on the day. The decorations made everything sparkle but it was quite an easy setup!
The gold sequin tablecloth from Any Occasion Events really made the table special. The quality is gorgeous and I know it is a tablecloth I can reuse for other special occasions.
The tablecloth was complimented by the backdrop with the words “Born to sparkle” being a custom decal made by PS Made with Love. I’ve always wanted to use a wall decal as a backdrop and it was a fun concept to try out.
The gorgeous crown pinata was by Party Pony Designer Pinata’s and we used it more as a decoration rather than a pinata – so that we could hang it in our daughter’s room after the party. It really was a stunning decoration so cleverly made by Nicola!
The tassel tail was also by Party Pony but sourced from Ruby Rabbit Partyware for a previous party – always great when you can reuse your party decorations!
The absolutely stunning cake was made by Minnie of Minnie’s Sweet Creations who I have used a few times as her cakes always taste as good as they look! The cake matched the watercolour look on the invitation and honestly tasted delicious!
The princess cake topper was by Glistening Occasions who created it beautifully with glitter on the tiara and number 4!
You can see the glitter detailing in this close up and it was beautifully made!:
Minnie from Minnie’s Sweet Creations also made these sweet princess cookies. They were the perfect size cookies for little ones and were snapped up in seconds!:
I made some oreo pops for the party which always go down well and dressed them up with some pink and gold glitter cake pop sticks from Glistening Occasion.
Jelly is a must have at my kids parties and I dressed the little jelly pots up with a glitter wooden spoon from Butterfly Kisses Celebrations:
Fruit is another item I always like to include on the dessert table and I used these pretty crown cupcake toppers in pink/gold cupcake cases all sourced from Ruby Rabbit Partyware:
The kids table is always fun to setup and my daughter gets excited about sitting there and eating with her friends. This year I decided to use stylish pink mini ghost chairs for something different! Mini Party People have these in a range of colours along with the kids tables for hire and they were wonderful to work with!
Besides the plates/cups I don’t like putting too much on the kids table because you need room for the food/platters!
However I popped the cute kids party glitter crowns from Ruby Rabbit Partyware on the table along with the gorgeous pink and gold chevron partyware from Illume Designs! I thought the pink and gold of their range worked so well together.
You can only just see them here….but I found these cute straws with pink crowns on them from Devour Cakes :
These glitter bottle/vases were actually from Naomi’s 1st birthday party – glad I was able to reuse them!:
Inside the bags were various items depending on whether they were for girls or boys (eg: hair clips, cars, bangles, playdough etc) however one special item I included for the girls were some princess carriage soaps from Soap Buddies:
Now this day was a 40 degree day in Sydney so thank goodness we booked Cinderella to come along from Fairy Fun! I actually lengthened her booking on the day as the kids were having SO much fun and in the heat they couldn’t play outside anyway!
My daughter always gets so excited when an entertainer comes to a party as she is still young enough to believe that it REALLY is Cinderella! It also gives all the parents a chance to sit back and chat to each other while the kids have fun. We were so happy with Cinderella and would definitely recommend Fairy Fun for party entertainment in Sydney!
Rebekah honestly had such a fun time at her party and I’m so glad I had booked Nikki Fitt photography to take photos as she captured precious shots such as this….love this photo of me and Rebekah as you can see my baby bump as well!:
I should also mention that Rebekah’s party outfit is also sourced from vendors in the directory! Her gorgeous pink tutu with gold ribbon is from Sweet Pirouette. We gave it to her on her birthday and she was SO excited to wear it and do her little poses!
She is also wearing a pink and gold chain made by Little Miss Charlie’s Treasures:
We all had such fun celebrating with our family and friends ! I can’t believe it will be a 5th birthday I’ll be planning for her later this year!
Thanks for reading and make sure you visit the Directory page when you are party planning to find all the vendors I have used and many more!
