A fruity theme is always popular in Summer…and there has been many a bright tutti frutti party showcased online – so for this summery setup for the 3rd issue of Celebrating Little One’s e-magazine , stylists Mooi. Co decided on more of a pastel colour scheme with fruits of lemons, and limes and other summery fruits.
The result is a delightful setup with a relaxed table for the kids, lemonade stand and dessert table filled with desserts inspired by summery fruits! I love the mix of colours of yellows, peach, mint green and pinks for a fruity kids party theme!
This was a collaboration of Life’s Little Celebration members and you can find the talented vendor list at the end of this blog post!
