I can’t wait for you to see the 4th photoshoot in the Confetti Fair magazine feature series of bird inspired shoots where Life’s Little Celebration partners (who you can find on the Directory pages) collaborated to create an inspiring party setting ! I hope you’ve loved seeing the amazing party shoots which have emerged from the inspiration of a flamingo, swan and magpie and today the bright and tropical Toucan inspired 10th birthday party shoot!
Inspired by the colours of the toucan and the tropical habitat it occupies this party was about being fun and colourful but also a little bit grown up for a 10th birthday. This summer party is full of vibrant deep rich colours and splashes of tropical fruits. Lush and sophisticated this is a party that could easily be held poolside to capture that resort-style vibe.
I love the handpainted party decor, the fun and fruity partyware and amazing tropical inspired desserts!
Elizabeth from ELK prints styled and coordinated this shoot (and created the gorgeous invitation & handpainted leaf decor) and brought the colourful Toucan bird to life. Photos are by Captured by Kirri and all other fabulous Life’s Little Celebration partners involved are listed at the end of this post!
