Today I am so very pleased to be sharing with you an event I put together for a lovely client back in April of this year.

My gorgeous client Lorriane contacted me in January this year to talk to me about creating a beautiful and pretty first birthday party for her precious and long awaited first daughter Mariette.   Lorraine was very clear on the fact that she wanted a stunning dessert table that included lots of cakes but she didn’t want a set theme, more of a really pretty girly party that was fit for a princess.  The colour palette chosen was soft pinks and blues with a hint of gold which always look so elegant together.

This party was a big event for her large family and friends that was to be a true celebration of Mariette’s first year.  The event was to be held indoors in a large function room to cater for the 100 guests which ranged from young babies and children to adults and grandparents.

I set up a number of different areas so that the kids had a space for themselves with entertainment as well as an area for them to sit and eat when the food was served.   The beautiful dessert table was set up in the adults area for them to enjoy – it included 9 stunning cakes all made by Jacki from Blissfully Sweet as well as mini desserts.  The lovely macarons were made by Jho from Its a Cake thing and the Cake Pops are by Marina from M’s Cake Pop

A Welcome table was created that also held some lollies and bags of fairy floss as favours for the kids to take home.   The beautiful big balloons throughout the room were created by Shannon from Born to Party – Shannon used pretty balloon frills by Blush Loves Mint which made the room look stunning.

Lorraine was also keen to have some family shots taken prior to the party starting to I asked Dragana from One Love Photography to take all the photos on the day seeing as I as rather busy.

There really are so many special and lovely details to this party so I will let the images show you how it all came together. Supplier links are listed below.
