Mary Poppins party shoot

Let’s go fly a kite…! I loved Mary Poppins along with the newest Mary Poppins Returns – the music, the costumes, the acting – and my daughters loved it too! It makes such a gorgeous party theme so I loved seeing this take on a Mary Poppins party incorporating different aspects from the movie such as the carousel scene, the penguins and the “lets go fly a kite” song.

Cookie Queen Kitsch’n coordinated this Mary Poppins party shoot for our magazine with other vendors from the Celebrate Society and the overall setup along with the details are truly inspiring! You can find the full vendor list at the end of this post so you can source all the various items or vendors yourself!






I love the gorgeous table setting against the backdrop of the slumber party teepees!



Such gorgeous tableware which I would never have thought to put into a Mary Poppins theme however it works perfectly!!



These Mary Poppins inspired graphics are stunning!!



How amazing are these acrylic details and signs?:





So in love with this Mary Poppins party cake, and topper!




All the Mary Poppins party desserts are practically perfect!













We love the way the teepees were incorporated and showcased into the Mary Poppins party setting:





This definitely was such a fun and fab Mary Poppins party shoot that really captures the joy and enchantment of this movie!

Fairy Theme

A Fairy theme is such a popular theme for girl’s  and although I had done a previous blog post on this theme I decided to re-work it to keep it up to date!

For this theme you could incorporate woodland/garden features or keep it pastel and pretty. You could incorporate glitter, tulle, ribbons or any other whimsical decorations! If going for a woodland feel there are lots of props you could use such as mushroom decorations, wooden cutlery, grass table mats etc.

Here is a selection of some items to help inspire you and help you source some items for this theme!

You can also view my Pinterest board for more inspiration for this theme, and make sure you visit the Children’s Party Directory to find more fantastic vendors when planning this party!
