Gorgeous kids Christmas celebration!

Today I am delighted to share a gorgeous kids Christmas celebration put together by Illume Partyware and other members of The Celebrate Society (doors close in a week!)



They have broken from tradition and mixed pastels with metallic to result in a stylish, modern, Christmas affair!



Inspired by the luxury of mixing colour matching partyware they embraced Christmas through symbols of reindeers, stars and snowflakes and messages of peace, love and happiness.

All the elements melted together beautifully lighting up little faces and bringing the magic of Christmas alive!


As you can see, the result is such a sparkly gorgeous Christmas party and a real inspiration for setting up your own special Christmas kids party or table for the kids on Christmas day!

Nutcracker Christmas Party

With Christmas only a few weeks away now is the time to start getting inspired for your Christmas celebrations and this nutcracker party by The Party Parlour featured in our Issue 6 of Celebrating Little One’s e-magazine is sure to inspire! This was a collaboration of some of our Celebrate Society Members (membership closes Nov 30, click here to join)



So much detail and organisation went into this event and as you can see from the photos below, the suppliers (all Celebrate Society members!) did an amazing job bringing it all together. The photos are a whimsical glimpse of the party.



The detail that has gone into the table setting is perfect. With matching nut cracker bon bons and cookies the table shows elegance and fun all in one.




The white backgrounds and props are beautifully offset with the pops of colour and decoration, giving a magical and enchanting feel to the party.





A simple and elegant cake table became a modern take on the traditional Christmas cake.

Fresh flowers and macarons topped the cake, tying it together with the table decorations.

Crowns, cookies and individual place settings for each guest making each and every one feel special and important. The bon bons tied in effortlessly with the handmade cookies and create something fun for the kids!




Gifts wrapped in paper matching the theme made for the perfect table decorations. The best part is that you can use gifts that you are planning to give at Christmas and the wrapping is already done.



The Christmas Nutcracker theme continued through into the drinks and desserts, giving each guest their own feeling of being a beautiful ballerina or soldier. The decorations on each item are detailed and perfectly presented.





The Nutcracker party bags at this party have surely put smiles on the children’s faces. Individual party favours swinging on the back of each guests chair ready and waiting for them. This is a nice idea for a Christmas party as you can fill the bags with activities and craft for the kids to do during Christmas lunch.





The little girls were also matched to the theme in tutus to suit the Nutcracker theme:






This whimsical Christmas party has been beautifully put together and organised by a group of our amazing Celebrate Society members (doors close November 30th to our membership!)

Each vendor put much time and effort into putting this together and pulling it off. Check out below for their details and items that they supplied.

I’m dreaming of a pink Christmas!
