Christmas: Picnic in the Pines

In our latest issue of Celebrating Little One’s magazine (which you can view HERE) I was delighted to showcase a gorgeous and unique Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot styled by Opulenticity Party and Buffet Styling Perth. She brought together a team of vendors to create a Christmas picnic in the pines.

Incorporating a rustic woodland look (and even a pony!) while still keeping the Christmas feel with whites and golds!

Enjoy browsing all the images to help inspire your own planning or to source some Christmas party supplies for yourself. All vendors involved are listed at the end of this post.

The Magic of a Fairy Party Theme

When it comes to little girl’s party themes, it’s fair to say that you’ll throw at least one fairy theme in your child’s early years!

Not only is it a popular theme choice for little girls, there are so many variations available including an enchanted woodland, Tinkerbell, princess fairy and whimsical, you’ll have no trouble pulling it all together and creating magic for her special day. The hardest part will be knowing when to stop!

To help get the imagination rolling, I’ve curated a selection of items from our talented LLC Directory vendors and you’ll find plenty of inspiration over on our Pinterst page as well.

 

Fairy party invitations and printables

Set those wings fluttering with gorgeous coordinated stationary, printables and themed backdrops to help create a magic setting for the fairies to celebrate the occasion.

Fairy Party Decorations

The options are endless for decorating your fairy theme setting, and you can find just about anything you can think of these days to help bring your vision to life. Think lots of pastels, tulle, pom poms and glitter for a modern or princess fairy theme, or spotted mushroom, hessian, woodland creatures, grass and sliced wood cuttings for serving platters if choosing a Tinkerbell or woodland style party.
