“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” Whether you’re a traditional chocolate or vanilla-flavoured fan, or prefer something more unique like strawberry cheesecake, you can’t deny that ice cream is a frozen, sugary treat that we just can’t live without!
Everyone’s favourite icy dessert was the feature at this magical 2nd birthday party. Captured by the incredible Melbourne photographer Z by Zahrah, the Ice Cream + Pastel concept was chosen by mummy Nikki for her daughter Ava, and was executed perfectly by Glam Wonderland.
Our favourite highlight? We couldn’t choose just one but we do love this too-cute mint bicycle overflowing with pastel balloons and fresh blooms.

And have you seen this amazing balloon installation?!

We also obsessed over the cake by Pastel and Bloom, which looked almost too good to eat. Check out the detail on the ‘melted’ ice cream cone on the top!

Everything – from the table setting to the stationery and especially the desserts – featured pastel ice cream decals, which added to the enchantment of the party.
Something as delicious as this set-up had us asking ZbyZahrah what was special about shooting this editorial?
"Ava's ice cream party was a dream to photograph! Every little detail was covered, and between Nikki and Aneta (Glam Wonderland), it was styled to perfection.”
LENZO loves a party tip – what’s ZbyZahrah's?
“For your next event, always consider the best light at a venue to maximise the potential of the best photos.”
Anyone else now craving ice cream for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner?
Love LENZO x
