Christening/1st Birthday in the Park

 A Party fit for a Princess.....

Christmas in Australia also equals summer and that means a hectic time between October and December for us in the events industry.

Now with a bit of a quiet January I am happy to sit down and share some of my parties that I planned and styled during that crazy time. Starting with a beautiful 1st birthday/little girl's christening.

I was contacted by the Blackburne's as they were keen on hosting a special 1st birthday in the park down by the river in one of Perth's most tranquil spots, for their special girl. Fortunately, the beautiful spot picked by my client consisted of some beautiful big trees and this was then to be the focal set up point of my buffet and food tables.

The trees gave me the inspiration to incorporate a woodlands theme and my client requested a pink princess theme. Balloons supplied by Shop now HQ.

To create a wow factor at the park, we hung beautiful tulle pom poms and our home made personalised party bags between the magnificent trees.

The ruffled tablecloths used really stood out in this open space with the addition of a magnificent princess cake by Cake Love Couture in
Perth and princess cake pops by the very talented Niknaks Sweetest treats.

Cute detail of animals throughout the day. The day was captured wonderfully by the talented Sarah of SarahO'Flanagan photography
Stunning children's food supplied by Hungry Little Monsters.

Champagne was poured in our acrylic look champagne glasses for guests after church on arrival to park and a drinks station was set up for self service during the event.
