Twinkle twinkle little star, oh how truly talented our LLC Vendors are!
Continually inspired by the imagination and collaboration within our creative industry, this first birthday celebration I’m sharing with you today is of no exception.
Styled by the team at Sydney’s Tiny Tots Toy Hire, using their gorgeous hire items – Petra’s Twinkle Twinkle Little Star birthday celebration was a sparkling display of creativity and clever use of party props, all available to hire for your next event too!
A simple, modern colour scheme of silver, black, white and aqua brought this nursery rhyme to life with the help of star prop accents and incredible balloon displays.
I’ve always said that it’s the finer details that help bring a theme together, but if those finer details are oversized numerals, light boxes and props on a grand scale, then you’ve got yourself a winning formula! In this case, the props from Tiny Tots Toy Hire were the shining light, and every other little detail worked in seamlessly to create the perfect party.
How great is this life size number 1 – perfect for photos!
Entertainment for this age group can be a little tricky, but from the looks on the guest’s faces, a jumpy castle, ball pit and pint sized toys were just the ticket – all available for hire from Tiny Tots Toy Hire.
Older guests were also kept busy with a star cookie decorating table.
The simple use of the right props for your next celebration can really take your event to the next level, and if you’re in Sydney it’s nice to know you can source them all from the one place too! Be sure to check out the Tiny Tots Toy Hire website for a full list of items available, from infant and baby toys, games and sports, playhouses, tables and chairs and themed props – you’re sure to exactly what you need!

Today I’m sharing such a gorgeous first birthday party with a Twinkle Twinkle little star party theme by Alex of Saffy and May (Qld) for her daughter!
This is one of my favorite themes (and one I used for my son’s Baptism dessert table) and I recently blogged here sharing party supplies for a twinkle twinkle little star party theme
Alex explains the inspiration behind this first birthday party:
“I started planning for my little one’s first birthday pretty much after she was born. I didn’t have a set theme to start off but I knew I wanted pastels colours, confetti and a touch of glitter gold.
Then at around 6 months, it became clear that Sahara’s favourite lullaby was and still is twinkle twinkle little star. So I sent my mood board to Belinda from Giggles & Grace Designs and she designed the sweetest printables”:
I just love the way the star theme is carried through this first birthday dessert table from the cake topper and cake to all the desserts and accessories:
This setup is so beautiful with a custom first birthday print! An area such as this at a first birthday party is perfect for special photos:
Alex explains more about this sweet setting at the party – “when possible, I love adding to my girls’ parties handmade touches. On this occasion, I made some party horns with fringed tissue paper. I also made a star cushion which is now in Sahara’s nursery. We had a small favour table with party boxes and a selection of photos from Sahara’ s first 12 months. I also decorated a small section with balloons, star stickers , a high chair and a cute milestone poster for Sahara and family to have photos taken”
Personalised and handmade touches make any birthday party extra special but moreso for that memorable first birthday party!
The little queen of the party herself – such a joyful smile and her cute first birthday outfit is styled to match her gorgeous party!:

A twinkle twinkle little star party theme is hugely popular at the moment and is such a sweet theme for a little boy or girl! I love this theme and used it for my son Joshua’s Christening dessert table as it was the first nursery rhyme his sisters sang to him when he was born and I just love the cute party theme.
