Looking for stylish birthday party inspiration and ideas, then have a look at this spectacular styled birthday party
When I met Katie from Teepee Dreams to discuss a birthday party styled shoot, I knew instantly she’d be the right person to create something quite magical. I wanted to arrange a styled shoot showcasing the talent of a variety of talented event specialists to provide parents with inspiration on a child’s birthday party with a difference. I asked for the help of event stylist Jess Meechan from Twin Flame Styling as she knew some fabulous businesses and has the eye for putting it together to make it look simply divine.
So in February we got together, asked for 4 willing girls to play in the tents, eat cakes and have glitter make up and funny enough their cooperation was second to none. Jess kindly suggested we used her beautiful barn to put together one of the most stylish and pretty tepee party. Scroll down to enter this pastel dream.
From lace tepees with sparkly cushions to a quite spectacular balloon arch from Balloons Inspirations & a beautiful floral displays from Hello Possum, it all started taking shape. Balloon Inspirations spent a couple of hours creating a multi coloured pastel arch made of hundreds of balloons, all tied up above, up the ceiling and around the staircase. Alex from Hello Possum delicately placed flowers once the arch was finished and floral ornaments around the tables.
No party is complete without a good serving of cake. Marnie from Sugar Lump Lane, who I worked with before on some pretty awesome weddings, had made a selection of delicious cakes and cupcakes all decorated in her signature style, which complimented perfectly the theme. Not only her cakes are simply divine, they are a work of art to the eyes as well. Her cakes always have delicate flowers and the cutest props, not forgetting edible glitter.
To add to this sugary feast, Cookie Delicious provided us with the most intricate and delicate fairy themed cookies which were presented to the girls as favours and little gifts to take home afterwards. The cookies looked amazing amongst the sweet grazing table.
La Maison Guimauve, who I have had the pleasure of working with before and ordering from too, once again supplied some fully clouds of delight with their beautiful marshmallows, flavoured in delicate rose, vanilla, raspberry and lemon. Dotted around the table and presented in little bags they added to this sugary dream.
Our model girls also loved trying out all the beautiful and intricate handmade fairy wings from the Wicked Fairy, not forgetting the fabulous glitter explosion from Luna Glitter Bar. Claire pampered the girls to such pretty glitter make up, on the face, neck and arms, I had serious glitter envy… Crystals and diamantees were placed on the foreheads completing the look superbly. I was really happy to hear too that Claire’s glitter is all eco friendly.
Our stylist Jess, dotted around some of her beautiful crystals. If you want crystal decor inspiration then she’s your girl. Jess’s talents don’t stop here, she also made some pretty fabulous crystal crowns for the shoot which are also becoming hugely popular with brides looking for alternative headdresses.
Did you know Teepee Dreams also do these parties for grown ups with prosecco added?…Just saying…
Now make a wish!
