American Indian 1st Birthday Celebration

An American Indian theme has become so popular this last year and I love this gorgeous party we are showcasing today as the colours are bright and vibrant and the theme has really come to life through the props and styling from Sydney based Sweet Heavenly Events Hire!

 

As Mary from Sweet Heavenly Events explains: “Vicky came to us and told us what she had in mind for her daughter Valentina’s Birthday.  We jumped at the chance of styling something unique and amazing. We got to work with our crazy and talented bunch of vendors to design something gorgeous. Using our Marble timber stands and our copper table ware it was a true masterpiece.”

Enjoy the incredible images and details and you will find all the vendor credits at the end of this post with many vendors you can find on our Directory!:

Rainbow Inspired First Birthday

 

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!

Party Perfection according to Jo’s Signs by Design

It’s hard to miss the beautiful event set ups on Facebook and Instagram, but have you ever wondered who and what it takes to create such a memorable event?

Today we are chatting to Jo’s Signs by Design who share with us that they are “just one cog in the wheel of the party world”. Hear from them below about the important elements they can bring to any event along with some tips for your party styling and planning:

We print all things party for individuals wanting to create a unique DIY event and talented event stylists. From weddings to birthdays to christenings to baby showers to anything that’s worth celebrating, we have seen it all.

Although we’re a small piece of the party puzzle, we’ve got some tips to make your next party memorable.

First Impressions

The first thing your guests see at your event sets the tone for the entire party. Welcome signs are the perfect way to greet guests and give them an idea as to what the day holds.

Printed by us, this welcome sign was designed by Eve & Co Stationery, who also applied the gold foil for a  Sweet Heavenly Events and Party Hire event:

 

The Big Picture

There’s so much that goes into making the big picture look perfect, but when you take the time and effort to put things together, the end result will leave your guests stunned. Make sure your decor compliment each other!

We printed this banner for Tiny Tots Events. Design and gold foil application by Eve & Co Stationery.

 

Personality

Adding a personal touch to your event can make it go from good to great. Guests love when an event reflects the personality and taste of the loved one’s their celebrating. After all, they’re the ones that know you the best

This sign was printed by us for Mary Ronis Events and designed by Edge House Design:

 

Memories

A picture lasts forever and parties are the perfect place to snap those memories. Giving your guests something fun to take photos with will make your event stand out and allows for guests to interact and have a laugh. Personalised prop frames are the perfect way to leave a lasting impression.

 

 

Party planning can have its ups and downs, but if you remember these important elements when preparing for your next event, we assure you it’ll leave people talking.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Style

With all the Christmas preparations happening it is easy to leave NYE planning until last minute…but now is the time to organise what you need  – so to help you get organised I’m sharing some NYE party supplies early to ensure they will arrive in time!

New Year’s Eve celebrations are one of my favourite – there is something special about a new year beginning and celebrating with close family or friends!

Styled by Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling

 

Our little ones are still quite little however for those of you with slightly older kids it is a perfect chance to organise a gathering that doesn’t centre just around the kids!  It’s a chance to get together with friends and family, letting the kids stay up a little longer than usual before having a slumber party on the floor, and then it’s all about letting the adults relax into the New Year with a more adults only style occasion (aka, champagne!).

When I look back at all the many amazing new trends in themes we’ve seen this year, there’s one in particular that I’ve been saving for NYE and just screams sophistication and ‘Happy New Year’ to me, and that’s the classic black and metallics with a touch of marble. Adult opulence at it’s best!

So if like me, you’ve had a big year of parties filled with flamingos, doughnuts and unicorns and are just craving something a little more grown up, I’ve sourced the perfect pieces from our LLC Vendors to pull together the perfect New Year’s Eve celebration for the adults (and kids, until bedtime!) so you can start your planning now, and have something to look forward to after the Christmas ham is finished.

 

New Year’s Eve Decorations

Whether it’s a backyard BBQ, seafood buffet or canapés after watching the fire works, this theme looks stunning in the evening as the metallics shimmer and glisten when styled with plenty of candles, and black or metallics make a great backdrop for these to pop against in the evening.

So start with black as your base, and build on it with hints of metallic (either gold or silver) and marble accents for depth and interest. Use your marble kitchen bench top, a black trestle table or one covered with a table cloth for a more polished look, and create drama and interest with varying heights of stands and platters to serve your food, or set an opulent dinner table complete with candle light.

Gymnastics Party Theme Supplies

Do you remember going to gymnastic classes as a child? So much fun!

Tumbling, jumping and climbing make it a popular choice of extra curricular activity for lower primary school aged children, and the perfect party option for this age group too.

For the full experience (and safety of your household items) many gymnastics venues offer party packages on the weekend, making it a great option for catering to larger numbers too. You’ll find many provide a room or separate area (and sometimes tables and chairs) for you to set up and bring your own catering, and they’ll take care of the rest. Too easy!

Here is some inspiration to get you started!:

Regardless of where you host your gymnastics party, we’ve done a little search of our LLC partners for some inspiration and general partyware you might need to help bring it all together for you.

 

Invitations

Get your guests excited with a fun and creative invitation that will have them bouncing with anticipation. I love the idea of including a photo of the birthday boy or girl as a gymnast!

Decorations

If hosting it at a venue, you may be limited to the decorations you can bring in and the allocated time to set up, so stick to some fun balloons and coordinated tableware for a quick and easy set up and clean up. Or if at home, go all out and let your imagination run wild! Choose bright primary colours, pink and gold or even metallics just like a gymnast’s leotard!

A styled table with customised cookies, wrapped chocolates or cupcakes with toppers is also an easy way to achieve your look.

Favours

When all the gymnasts have tumbled themselves tired and it’s time to go home, what better way to say ‘thanks’ and reward them for their outstanding ability, than to award them all them with their own gold medals or trophies! Kids go wild for these and they’re easy enough to find and be added to a goodie bag with a customised cookie, treats or other personalised gifts.
