From Thetis of Little Sooti... I was honored to style this gorgeous 1st birthday party for a beautiful little girl, Paris. Paris’s mum, who is an amazing cake designer, loves all things girly and usually opts for pretty pinks and soft colour palettes. However, after throwing some ideas around, we came up with a fresh and funky colour palette consisting of tangerine, peach, & gold.

The party area consisted of a dessert table which featured an amazing 3 tier cake and an ombre buttercream "smash cake" for Paris. We also had some yummy vanilla buttercream cupcakes, homemade marshmallows, white chocolate mousse cups and incredible cookies custom-made to match the invitations. Additionally, we included a small selection of lollies for the kids to grab throughout the day. And no dessert table is complete without a colour co-ordinated candy bar.

Stunning tassel garlands, made by Blush Loves Mint, acted as a backdrop, and we draped gold sequined fabric over the table for that extra sparkle.

The kids tables were covered in white linen paired with tangerine napkins, some cute dip dyed wooden cutlery and each place setting was complete with its own mini milk bottle.

The chairs were a mini version of the Louis Ghost Chair (in red) which worked perfectly with our scheme. Centrepieces consisted of beautiful milk glass vases filled with peach and orange roses. We also had a drink dispenser set up, filled with pink lemonade for the kids to enjoy in the warmth of the sun.

Each guest received their very own dip dyed ribbon wand to play with, and cute little white and gold boxes filled with pastel coloured meringues acted as party favours. Other decorations included giant balloons with tassels, also made by Blush Loves Mint, and hanging in the marque were honeycomb balls and bells.
