WELCOME

! o l Hel Our Christmas/Summer edition is always an exciting issue - filled with ideas, vendors and parties for the upcoming months which are always full of celebrations! This feels like it will be our first “normal” Christmas and summer holidays after a few years, and what better way to enjoy the warmer weather than to host a party whether its a kids Christmas party, a summer holiday sleepover party, a New Years Eve party or - if timing suits - of course your children’s birthdays. Celebrations create MEMORIES and it is these memories which get etched in our mind and make it worth the time and effort to make these gatherings so special for our kids but also our guests. Our magazine shoots aim to give our members a chance to really showcase their best work or their unique ideas – so as you browse, take note of the vendors involved and go and FOLLOW them so you can use them for your own child’s celebration.

TANYA CASTELLINO

EDITOR

Christmas IN PARIS

STYLED SHOOT | CHRISTMAS

CELEBRATING LITTLE ONES

NOV 2022


WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT?

I love Paris, the Eiffel Tower and all things Christmas, and thought it would be so gorgeous to work with a black, white and red palette this Christmas with a touch of Paris. It was such a special shoot that we all loved.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

Stacey’s illustration captured the magic of Christmas in Paris so beautifully. Honey Tub’s white arches, white Eiffel Tower and Parisian table and chairs were beyond perfect for this shoot. Kelly’s cookie mixes teamed with the theme so well. Keeley’s lollipops with a Santa hat on top of the Eiffel Tower lent a sweet touch to our setup. And last but not least, Sandy’s red door bow was just so perfect with the white and black palette.

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

ALWAYS work with a theme and colour palette, as this is where your magic will start. And of course, prioritise working with quality vendors. You will never regret choosing suppliers who provide premium products and service.

PARTY FEATURE | 9TH BIRTHDAY

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT?

The birthday girl just loves Squishmallows, so we really wanted her 9th birthday to encapsulate that. Her favorite squishmallows are the axolotls, puppies and the yowie, so the colour scheme was designed around those animals. We wanted the party to be cute but also funky, fun & PINK. We loved including the beautiful shimmer wall, custom standees and beautiful combination jumping castles!

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

Everything for this theme was custom created just for Audrey’s special day. It was very rewarding to create something unique for her without limitations. Vendors from all around Australia, as well as local Brisbane vendors all worked together to contribute their own wonderful items which combined to create Audrey’s Squishmallow Delight. An adoption wall was a must for Audrey – she just loved her having her guests choose a new cuddly friend to take home.

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

Engaging an experienced event stylist is a must if you wish to have a hassle free event that is customised to you and your child. Also, be realistic with your budget and expectations. In addition to high quality props and vendors, many hours of creative design and hard work are required to bring these events to life.

PARTY FEATURE | 3RD BIRTHDAY

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT? The inspiration for this shoot came from my son Aariz, 3 – who is superhero obsessed! We wanted to lend a modern touch to the superhero theme, so stayed away from the traditional colour palette and came up with modern colours to give it a fresh twist. We included the comic strip in the backdrop to retain the classic graphic comic look.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

The comic strip backdrop with cityscape cutouts was the most unique feature of this setup, to mimic a comic book. We also included sound effect cookies to match with the backdrop. We ensured there were activities and entertainment for the kids throughout the party, and had a large ballpit with slide for them to burn their energy off. There was also slime station for the hands-on kids, and entertainers with games, music and dance, and even a facepainter with balloon twisting!

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

Always plan ahead to ensure enough time is given to vendors involved to create the most magical event for you and your little one. Focus on what activities and entertainment the birthday child and guests would enjoy the most. Make it extra special with their favourite music playlist, favourite food items, and favourite activities. Hire an event stylist to ease the stress when it comes to planning and organising for your kids special day!

PARTY FEATURE | 5TH BIRTHDAY

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT? Tara has been obsessed with LOL Surprise dolls since she was 3 years old. So when it came time to celebrate her 5th birthday, I had a really good idea what direction I wanted to take the theme and style for the party: PINK, glitter, glam and balloons!

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

The bold colours and wave backdrops are definitely unique features of this setup. Personally, I think there is one trend which is by far the most popular this year: BOLD COLOUR COMBOS! Hot pink and yellow are the main colours for this setup and they work so well together here. Tara’s illustration as an LOL doll is also a standout element of this setup, and we used the character across the design of all paperie and custom favours.

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

When planning children’s parties, always think about the guest of honour and what they love or are passionate about. Don’t be afraid to create something different and unique, get creative with your ideas – but also appreciate vendor’s suggestions and be open to them. With regards to design, I think it’s important to keep colours and images consistent across the party setup and party favours.

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT?

The shoot was inspired by my little cousin who loves soccer and wanted to have it as the theme for her birthday party. My partner is also a very big soccer fanatic and would love to have this type of setup for our future children.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

The colour choice for this shoot was inspired by the soccer team Manchester City. Another cool feature of the setup is soccer goal area, which was an interactive area for the children to enjoy.

PARTY FEATURE | 1ST & 4TH BIRTHDAY

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT?

Teneille from Savour the Date is famed for her desserts – notably her terrazzo chocolate, geometric styles, and safari themed desserts. When it came to selecting a unique theme for her two daughters, Ayvah 4 & Isla 1, we decided to combine terrazzo, geometric and giraffe into a single theme. Teneille’s sister came up with the word play ‘Terrazzo Geo-raffe’, we agreed on a rust tone colour palette, and away we went!

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

A geometric giraffe graphic was repeated throughout the styling, including an acrylic backdrop plaque, cake plaque, cookies and favour box embellishments, which was paired with a terrazzo pattern. The geometric giraffe was also turned into a template for glitter tattoos: popular amongst all the guests. The terrazzo pattern itself was recoloured to suit our rust tone colour palette. We sought to incorporate several textures into the styling and desserts such as ripple panel backdrops, ceramics, acrylics, silk, and use of plant-dyed cheesecloth table textiles. We steered clear of giraffes and terrazzo for tableware, and instead chose pieces matching our colour palette. Custom gift boxes featured the terrazzo pattern on the box as well as its contents, which paired with the terrazzo backdrop and birthday cake. Soft play in rose gold complemented the birthday girls’ dresses, with floor mats featuring a terrazzo pattern to match our theme.

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

Literally PLAN! Desserts, including the main cake, play a major role in your party. Remember to budget to cater to all your guests, allowing one to two items per person in addition to the main cake. For aesthetic purposes, choose a variety of desserts rather than just one. This allows guests to experience all the different flavours and textures involved. Keep the desserts within the colours and theme design of the big event. This allows for greater cohesiveness. NOV 2022

PARTY FEATURE | 4TH BIRTHDAY

WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STYLING FOR THIS PARTY SHOOT? With my clients, I always try to find out what their child loves: it could be a character, toy, or animal. Barbie themes are trending right across the world at the moment, and can be set up in so many different ways, from Malibu, Disco, Fashion and all eras with some Pink fun! “4 Ever Young” captures Barbie as she is: timeless. With my daughter Hazel turning 4 this year, it was the perfect theme for her party.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS SETUP?

We wanted to bring in some blue and not just pink to this Barbie theme, and it worked so well with the pinks and magenta we chose for our balloons. Our props set the stage with our Victorian Arch and cake table featuring some of the best chocolate treats and elegant cookie-mix jars. Hazel’s Barbie cake with its hot pink acrylic Barbie Silhouette cake topper matched the decals and intricate decorative acrylic details. We displayed our take-home gifts for Barbie & Friends in a ‘Barbie Shop’, using our arches with make-up bags, and of course Barbie dolls. Our shimmer wall, dressed with tulle & balloon garlands was a perfect glam station. The picnic table was perfect for the kids to enjoy their lunch and style the partyware with, along with personalized name tags for all to find their places on comfy cushions! I have to admit a real-life Barbie coming to the party had all the girls fangirling when she arrived, and they had so much fun with glitter tattoos, jewels and dancing!

SHARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR THOSE PLANNING CHILDREN’S PARTIES AND CELEBRATIONS

Explore your child’s top three themes with them, to gauge which one they would love the most for their birthday party. Have a few fun activities suitable for all ages at the party. If this is too daunting to plan yourself, entertainers are fabulous and always become the highlight for the kids - well worth the investment for an invaluable party day service. Incorporate a personalised item for your little guests – they truly appreciate it and feel special being an invited guest at their friend’s party! NOV 2022
