Get your ‘Pawty’ on with our recent Paw Patrol-inspired kid’s party, styled especially for Rebecca Judd’s daughter, Billie…
Who doesn’t love Rebecca Judd? LENZO has been following Bec and her gorgeous family for years, and we’re super excited to have finally styled one of her events. Created especially for her daughter, the oh-so-cute Billie Judd, LENZO executed a colourful 4th birthday bash for 17 of Billie’s friends at Greenfields in Albert Park on the weekend.
Bec, Billie and Co. had an absolute ball celebrating her 4th birthday – come and check out all the beautiful pictures, captured by My Little Tribe.
Any parent will be familiar with the popular children’s TV show ‘Paw Patrol’. Prior to planning the party, Bec shared with us that, “Billie is currently obsessed with Paw Patrol, and I wanted to incorporate it into her fourth birthday.”
We put our creative spin on the theme, and were told that, “Billie loved the colourful event!”
Our bright and fun vision for the Paw Patrol-inspired event was brought to life with a rainbow injection into the crisp Albert Park venue. We wanted guests to be ‘WOWED’ as soon as they entered the room, and we achieved this through a rooftop balloon installation from Belle Balloons, vibrant partyware from Palm and Pine Party Co, textured pink tablecloths from Linen House, and fab furniture from both Dann Event Hire and Mini Party People! Our tip? Pull out the colours you love from the theme and run with those.
Raven and the Rose came to the party with their floral wizardry and filled concrete vases from The Small Things Co, with a range of in-season blooms, including roses, dahlias and hydrangeas. To fill the vast space, we also added lush greenery from Botanical Events.
The Personalised Touches
Mickey Loves Jacqui were in charge of the stationery for the event, and they created the most amazing kid's birthday invitations as well as ‘Billie’ custom logos. They also were the masterminds behind the ‘Billie’ floor decal and the little paw details that were stuck sporadically onto the floor. Sketch and Etch created bespoke acrylic signage, personalised drink stirrers for each child, and cake toppers made just for Billie! As you can tell, LENZO is all about the little touches when planning an event – these are the things that guests really appreciate and will remember for years to come!
Fourside Food and Design catered the event with delicious + nutritious treats for both the adults and the little ones. We love a good party pie and ice cream cake, but we’re also ready to step it up a notch every now and then. For desserts, LaManna Patisserie created an array of sweets, as well as three different Puppy Pawty Cakes – we can imagine these will be flying off their shelves like hotcakes, so be sure to order in advance!
LENZO’s number one piece of advice for planning a children’s party is to hire entertainment to keep the kids busy and you relaxed, like we did with Lil Critters and their party hosts, who led all the games, face painting and dress-ups with costumes.com.au. It will take the stress off of you during the day, meaning you can enjoy the event with your little one and their friends!

Five Minutes with Bec Judd
Bec sure has planned a few killer events herself, so at the conclusion of the event we just had to ask her for her top tips and tricks, as well as her thoughts on the party!
LENZO: What is your number one party planning tip?
BEC: “Plan something that you know your child will love! Nothing will make you happier than seeing the smile on their face.”
LENZO: What were your favourite elements of the event?
BEC: It’s impossible to just pick one! There were so many suppliers who brought the party to life. Each business added its own personal flavour, including Belle Balloons, Raven and the Rose, Sketch and Etch, Mickey Loves Jacqui, costumes.com.au, and of course LENZO.
LENZO: What has been your involvement with LENZO?
BEC: I have been a loyal follower of LENZO since the beginning and we kindly thank Elleni Pearce and her team for bringing our Billie’s party to life!
LENZO: Would you recommend LENZO’s styling and party planning services to your friends?
BEC: Yes! The LENZO team made the party process so easy, and it allowed me to enjoy the day with Billie. I’ll be recommending all the school mums to use Parties by LENZO for their child's next birthday party or special event.
