Camp Quality chose to embrace the season we are in and threw a winter wonderland extravaganza to support children and their families living with cancer. Aimee who is one of Camp Quality’s trusted volunteers contacted me to see if I would like to be involved. I jumped at the opportunity and I am so glad I did, as it was easily one of my most favourite events I have been a part of.
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again. Camp Quality’s family experiences are about providing families with an opportunity to have an unforgettable time and create incredible memories. I was so pleased I could use my business to help children who are dealing with their own cancer diagnosis with an opportunity for a fun experience. The winter wonderland extravaganza made happy memories that changed the cancer story for kids and families.
I put a call out via the Celebrate Society which is a group of the nation’s most talented party vendor’s through Life’s Little Celebrations. I was overwhelmed with the response of those who wanted to donate their time, talent and product to the event. As they say it’s better to give than receive, and I tell ya what I couldn’t agree more. I was so pleased I along with others could play a small part in bringing joy to Camp Quality’s mini campers.
This was the perfect occasion to go all out and create a magical frosted wonderland to bring fun, laughter and optimism to Camp Quality’s mini campers. I knew I needed to create something truly magical, incorporating icy elements and wintery fun!
I was absolutely delighted to gather the best of the best in the party industry to create a stylish party. What a pleasure it was to work with the fabulous Carly & Kim from Sassy Snaps Perth. Carly bought her a-game balloon styling skills and eye for detail capturing Camp Quality’s winter wonderland mini camp with her exceptional photography skills!
I was so impressed that the gorgeous Catie from Sweetly Baked Perth jumped at the opportunity to make the sweetest snowflake cookies for all the mini campers attending Camp Quality’s winter wonderland mini camp. Baking, icing, decorating and wrapping fifty cookies is an incredible commitment.
A gorgeous table setting laid await for the little ones to enjoy all the winter fun! I like to use my imagination and put extra effort into decorating the table. On this occasion I chose a palette of three colours – icy blue, a wintery white and a touch of sparkly silver. I loved the addition of the white lanterns and wintery white florals.
Alison from Just Add Confetti is an incredibly talented designer who brought her creative skills for Camp Quality’s recent winter wonderland mini camp with this sparkly design. I have been working with Alison for over two years now and I tell ya what I love working with her. I don’t have to say too much, no long flowery description required – Alison gets me! On this occasion Alison created mini signs for the tables, stickers for the cups, water bottle labels, and the significant welcome signage, highlighting all the fabulous vendors involved in our contribution.
Introducing Peter the Penguin – well that’s the name I gave him! Isn’t he the cutest little penguin piñata you ever did see? Karen from Pinatas by Karen Rivera created Peter the Penguin especially for Camp Quality’s winter wonderland mini camp! He flew first class from Melbourne to Perth for the event. As soon as he arrived – he stole the show! The little ones adored him!
Did you know Peter the Penguin is a pull string piñata? Meaning no hitting the piñata as he is just so gorgeous but instead the little ones would pull one of his strings with the hope that the lucky string pulled will open the piñata! So fun!
The table was set with white and silver paper plates. The wooden cutlery was set in blue napkins and wrapped in twine. Every silver cup featured a blue sticker with the snowflake design, topped with a silver and white striped straw. The water bottles were given a coordinated label indicating that the water was ice cold water.
Jodie from The Party Parlour generously provided the beautiful blue and silver tableware, aswell as wooden cutlery. Silver cups, topped with a silver and white straw. I loved the look especially with the iridescent plate – it brought a hint of sparkle and glamour to the table.
The centrepiece were white lanterns with flickering tea lights, clear vases of white roses, and cute mini signs featuring a silver castle.
There is nothing more important to us that long lasting memories from your my little party event. Carly from Sassy Snaps captured this event so well.
So there you have it a fun recap of the Winter Wonderland mini camp for Camp Quality. Did you know 59% of Australian children newly diagnosed with cancer were supported by Camp Quality’s services and programs. If you are like me, and would like to be part of the difference in the lives of 7 500 kids facing cancer that are registered for Camp Quality’s services and programs, I encourage you to donate to Camp Quality today.
If you thought these party details brought some sparkle to your winter why not create a winter wonderland party for your next little party! You are most welcome to use any of the party ideas.
Alternatively, I’d be delighted to do all the hard work for you! Hosting a child’s party is no mean detail, 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.
