WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY?
Leah has brought so much joy to our family and I wanted to celebrate this 1 year milestone with something special and memorable – as well as a beautiful theme fitting for such a precious girl!
I love the pretty flamingo images I’ve seen with floral crowns and the idea of doing a floral flamingo party (rather than tropical) with shades of pink and rose gold.
Eve&Co created a stunning floral flamingo design for the invitation which then carried over to the table decal, cake topper and more. This design inspired the rest of the decor which Paper Face Party was able to bring together on the day with her styling and florals. The amazing balloon decor by Party Splendour also really brought the chosen colour scheme alive!
SHARE YOUR TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS
Outsource what you need to ease the stress! I always use Life’s Little Celebration directory vendors for my kids parties. Having vendors I could rely on helped with being able to prepare for the party while still being able to look after my 1yr old and other children.
If you can’t or don’t want to outsource too much then ensure you keep things simple enough that you can manage.
Have something for the kids to enjoy at the party. At Leah’s party the younger kids loved the ball pit and older kids enjoyed the puppet show (which included a Flamingo puppet !) and it meant our friends could then also relax and enjoy the party! Whether it’s party games, colouring activities, art & craft tables or outdoor equipment - having something for the kids helps both them and the adults enjoy the celebration!
After all your hard work planning – don’t forget to actually enjoy the party you’ve spent so long organizing!
