I was thrilled when Danielle contacted me to plan her daughter’s birthday celebration. Little Laila turned five in December, and she couldn’t wait to host all her little friends at her very own princess party.
Laila’s fifth birthday was the perfect occasion to go all out and create a modern princess party! I was absolutely delighted I was given the opportunity to plan and style a princess-inspired party. I wanted to capture lots of girly details in all elements of the party. I knew I needed to create something truely magical, a royal event, fit for a beautiful princess. My heart was set on traditional princess decor straight from her favourite fairytale! I like to use my imagination and put extra effort into decorating a table. On this occasion, I chose a palette of three different colours, pretty pinks, white and elegant touches of gold as inspired by Laila’s favourite colours.
The table was set with gold and pink square paper plates. The wooden cutlery was set in pink napkins, and wrapped with a message: Happy Birthday Princess Laila. Every recycled milk bottle featured the number five and a gold castle, topped with a gold paper straw. The water bottles were given a coordinated label highlighting a birthday message especially for Laila. The centrepieces were posies of white and pink roses, and gold candle holders with flickering tea lights, aswell as pink and gold confetti. Each place setting had a pink sparkly tiara for each little party guest.
Designing event stationery is one of my most favourite parts to party planning. I simply love stationery and believe if you choose well, it can really create the WOW-factor! I had the great pleasure of working with Alison from Just Add Confetti again. On this occasion Alison created milk bottle wraps, water bottle labels, and cutlery wraps.
While dancing through this glamorous partyscape, if you were dazzled by all the pretty pink details why not create a princess party for your favourite princess! You are most welcome to use any of the precious princess party ideas.
Alternatively, I’d be delighted to do all the hard work for you! Hosting a child’s party is no mean feat, as any parent can confirm. There are so many things to organise. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get rid of at least some part of the mammoth task by outsourcing it? All it takes to get the party started is a phone call to me on 0424 728 798, or the click of the mouse to our contact page. I would love to create a joyful and memorable party for you and your little one!
