One thing us ladies at LENZO love is a party that exceeds all expectations.
So feast your eyes on this balloon explosion, designed by one of LENZO's favourite stylists, Styled by Coco. The theme was brought to life with a warm, romantic palette of pink, burgundy and soft blue, with a huge Belle Balloons installation stealing the spotlight.
The theme was initially inspired by the 2016 Pantone colours of the year - rose quartz and serenity blue - with rose gold touches being added for that extra sparkle. Burgundy hue balloons and florals were added for some flair! Don't you just love?!
We can definitely see elements from this party being a massive trend for 2017, such as its ethereal colour combination and creative balloon installation, so we had to ask Rochelle from Styled by Coco for her top party tip:
"Always keep it fun! Even though these bubs are quite young, we always try to create focal points to catch their attention. In this case the ceiling balloon installation was a huge hit with Sofiya."
How to recreate this first birthday party:
Of course, the venue plays a big role in the theme and atmosphere of your event. This 1st birthday party was held at Nshry Café, where its all-white décor made it easy to infuse with any colour palette. When you’re looking for venues, consider the amount of guests you have, whether they provide catering, and its accessibility (as you’ll be inviting other mums with prams + bubs).
Balloons are always a fun decoration at birthdays, but did you know that you can GO BIG!? Having a cluster of balloons at the front entrance, above the food table, or even covering the entire ceiling can really add impact that you might not have ever considered. Best of all, balloons come in a variety of colours, so whatever your theme is, you can be sure that these decorations can be matched.
Give your guests something luxe to sit on – we love this lounge chair from Dann Event Hire for its colour as well as its comfort.
And of course, it isn't a first birthday without cake - and there was plenty in this case, with a flowing dessert table layered in yummy chocolates, cakes + cherries - #YUM!
Don’t forget an adorable cake topper as the cherry on top of your dessert – you can personalise it with your baby’s name for an insta-worthy shot!
