A baby shower in full bloom

When you’re expecting a new baby – it is a special time and definitely a time to celebrate! A baby shower is a beautiful chance to pamper the mother to be and indulge her a little while celebrating the unique life about to be born!

Talented Life’s Little Celebration vendors collaborated together to put together an inspirational shoot in time for spring for anyone planning a baby shower! This shoot was styled for a special feature on Lenzo which you can view here.

These beautiful invites really set the tone for the whole shoot and I love the idea of theming a baby shower around such a floral concept as being “in full bloom”!

The whole event then came alive with the gorgeous array of flowers and decor to create a relaxing, inviting and perfectly pretty setting with the colours of the flowers working so beautifully with the rose gold touches:

This beautiful flower was actually handcrafted from paper – hard to believe I know! Paper flowers are the perfect way to add extra floral touches which you can keep after the celebration!

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.

Finding Dory party supplies

With the release of the new finding Dory movie, my prediction is an influx of kids requesting a Finding Dory party or underwater party this year!

Some inspiration to get you started –  this table setting by Tiny Tots Events (Melbourne) is a great example of pulling it all together simply with theme treats, colour and sea shells as props!

Heavenly styled baby shower

There is something about a styled event that leaves a lasting impression, don’t you think?  Small details are discussed for months as guests recall moments from the big day, and the joy experienced by everyone in attendance seems to last that little bit longer, making it all worth it.

Baby showers are already memorable occasions as it is, but this particular one styled by LLC partner and Celebrate sponsor –   Sweet Heavenly Events Hire is beyond words. Collaborating with many other talented vendors from the Life’s Little Celebrations directory for the dessert buffet, flowers, backdrop and matching sweet delicacies, we love everything about it and wish we were guests!

 

13076817_731077160360056_4469262413649615678_n

 

Using many of their own props (also for hire) and working closely with their trusted vendors, the Sweet Heavenly team created a special mint, green and white theme with splashes of silver to present what can only be described as a jaw-dropping setting for this special occasion. We’re guessing inspiration came from the incredible dining table!

 

13007189_731075887026850_8032730151256362032_n

 

Details right down to the cupcake toppers ensured a talking point at every bite, making them (almost) too good to eat. Displayed on gorgeous marble and silver cake stands (also for hire) to coordinate everything beautifully.

13043555_731076010360171_5907653458966798655_n

 

These chocolate pyramids even mimic the marble table which is just so subtle and so clever.
13062451_731076933693412_9115562207200802954_n

 

Laser cut cake toppers are proving to be a popular choice for all occasions, and this one in silver is on point perfection, sitting pretty atop a frilled two tier show stopper.

13015193_731076970360075_7340026104623670516_n

 

Props like this wooden rocking horse and chair (also available for hire) are perfect for the theme and give the room that extra WOW factor.

 

13012658_731077320360040_6690805229372947701_n

 

Working with a stylist like Sweet Heavenly has so many advantages, but if you have the creative flair and want to give it a go yourself, their beautiful items for hire will help get you the look you’re after and provide that stylist’s touch. I love how seamlessly this whole theme has come together, and hope it has inspired your next occasion.
