The humble party hat has come a long way and personalised party crowns are now the cutest accessory for the birthday boy and girl whether for a party or a cake smash. Kids can now enjoy a custom party hat or crown handmade from Schooza !
They can be created in a range of colours but I have to say these rose gold crowns are my favourite!:

Celebrate attendees were already receiving delicious desserts and treats to take home in their swag bags – however I wanted to provide them with another type of buffet to enjoy as part of their experience at Celebrate. The flower bar did just that with each guest taking home their own hand picked posy of flowers in mini bottle vases dressed in stunning watercolour tags by ELK Prints:
The tags had a simple reminder keepsake message for them to “flourish” their business using the tools from the day. So many commented on the beautiful handpainted design on each tag:
It was a lovely area for guests to enjoy during the break to create their take-home floral gift:
ELK prints – who created these tags – is an expert in beautiful bespoke creations for celebrations!
From stunning invites to handpainted decorations – each piece is custom made and totally gorgeous! I personally love the watercolour effect and it is still a huge trend in art and print at the moment!
Beautiful hand painted signs for a room or for an event become a true keepsake!:
Unique decorations can also be created such as these handpainted feather balloon tails!
Contact Elizabeth at ELK Prints and discuss what she could create for your next celebration!

Thank you ELK prints for your stunning work on the Celebrate flower bar tags!
“I don’t want to waste money on invitations, because people just throw them out”
Today we chat to Daniella – owner and Creative Director of Eve&Co. who explains that hearing someone say that makes her inwardly cringe. She explains “stationery is a huge part of my life and its heartbreaking hearing ‘throwaway’ statements. It’s also not entirely true!”
In our busy times where e-mail and sms invitations are becoming more common – receiving an invitation in the mail is always something special and I know my children love looking at an invitation on the fridge as a tangible reminder of an exciting event to come!
Daniella shares more of her amazingly gorgeous invitations with us today along with her thoughts on how they can be used to set the perfect first impression for a special celebration…
“Invitations are your event’s big introduction. They create excitement and anticipation, and set the tone for what you’ve got planned – whether it be a lavish wedding, christening celebration or even your child’s first, second, third, the numbers go up and up – birthday party.
So much thought and planning go into these events to make them special and unique to your guest of honour, why would you skimp on the very piece of communication that entices your guests to attend and join the celebration?
In short, if you’re going to throw an amazing party – then you should send amazing invitations!
They should be one-of-a-kind, wow-your-guests and designed specifically for your event and theme. In turn, it will keep them out of the trash and in the memory books.
People will certainly throw out unappealing invitations that blatantly show there was no thought or effort put into them. No one expects a guest to keep something even the host doesn’t care about.
Having said that, they also don’t need to break the bank to have that ‘wow’ factor. You’d be surprised at how beneficial it is to speak to an experienced bespoke stationer when it comes to planning your event – and invitations should always be your first port of call after the theme has been set.
A good creative will always be keen to discuss realistic options based on your own budget while still giving your event stationery the custom, one-of-a-kind treatment it deserves.
Working with so many wonderful clients and helping their event themes come to life through invitations and paperie is what we’re truly passionate about at Eve&Co.
We absolutely love being given a theme (and often times, our clients will come to us with only that) for us to work our magic on, and voila! – amazing things happen.
Our unique approach and fully bespoke service sets us apart. Every single piece is custom designed, hand assembled and hand finished – ensuring your guests receive only the finest in stationery for your event’s big introduction and beyond.
If you’re looking for a truly one of a kind stationery or invitation, then contact Eve & Co – you won’t be dissapointed!
Eve&Co can be contacted via facebook, instagram or email.
In my last post, I promised you more details of our Celebrate conference so you can steal our style for your next event, or just get a head start on finding the perfect vendor to pull off your own vision. If you missed the post, you can read it here for all the details on our table centrepieces, and stay tuned as we bring you a more reveals each week.
Today we’re looking at another table detail which was a huge hit as they were are a hugely popular decorating item that doubles as a game, but aren’t often found as mini’s or used for table decoration like we used them for!
Yes, MINI pinata’s!!
In my opinion, styling is about personalisation and interpretation. So when I came across these mini pinata’s by Party Pony designer pinatas, I knew they weren’t destined to be hung, and certainly not bashed by a stick (would have made for a very interesting conference…).
Instead, we used them on tables – and were styled by Paper Face as part of some of the centrepieces.
Owner Nicola created a mix of diamond and heart shapes in our theme colours, which we then used as centrepieces on tables. Pinata’s are hugely popular as decorations these days, doubling as a bit of (bashful) fun, but using them in an unexpected way is a great talking point for guests.
Nicola can custom make these to your requirements, so let your imagination run wild and run your ideas past her – think cake toppers, photo props or room decor.
Nicola also creates custom tassel garlands and balloon tails for a cohesive look to your event, and you can see more of her work or shop from her website.
I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work on this event Nicola! Contact Party Pony Designer Pinata’s to see their full range or order a custom pinata
I hope this feeds your imagination and has you thinking about how you’ll use an item differently. I’ll be bringing you more details of the styling, props, balloons and more soon so stay tuned!
If there’s one trend that will never go out of style, it’s glitter. A touch of sparkle add’s the ‘special’ to special occasions if you ask me!
So it’s only fitting that our upcoming Celebrate conference in August has it’s own dose of sparkle and you can expect plenty on the day too! It’s going to be a fantastic day for industry experts to network, learn and collaborate and we hope you can join us.
Helping us add a little sparkle to the day is LLC partner and Celebrate sponsor Sam from Sugarlicious with her gorgeous range of glittered cake toppers, cupcake toppers, decals for children’s clothing, garlands, foil prints and more – if you’re a Celebrate attendee you will find a gorgeous item from Sugarlicious in your swag bag to enjoy at a future celebration!
Using card stock for her toppers, Sugarlicious has a huge range of themed products to choose from, or can work with you on designing a custom image to suit your theme using a commercial electronic cutting machine to cut any design you can think of, up to 30cm!
I love how you can coordinate an entire theme with the Sugarlicious creations like this gorgeous mermaid or first birthday theme using decals, cake and cupcake toppers and adhesive favour bag image.
Why not add an iron on transfer whilst you’re at it which make gorgeous keepsakes for first birthday’s, and perfect for the party princess to wear on the day with a fluffy tutu.
Pink and gold is obviously a popular colour combination, but Sugarlicious offers a range of 11 colours in total to choice from to suit any theme or occasion. Not just for kids’ birthday parties either, glitter toppers are a popular choice for milestone birthday’s, weddings, baby showers and Christmas.
So how will you add a little sparkle to your next occasion? You can find our more about Sugarlicious and shop online here.
