A Californian seaside soiree inspired by Dolce & Gabbana!
We’ve been swooning over these seaside party pics from the moment we saw them, and know you’re equally going to fall in love with this beautiful beach bash too. A serving of stripes, a lick of lemon and a dash of designer made for the kind of kids’ affair we’d happily sail to California for any day!
When two sisters reached out to Beijos Events to plan a party for their daughter’s birthdays – Maude turning one, and Eloise turning three - the event planners were thrilled to learn the theme would pay homage to a recent family vacation to the Amalfi Coast.
Thrown at the gorgeous stretch of Bay Shores in Newport Beach, Beijos Events took inspiration from the girls’ beautiful Dolce & Gabbana outfits purchased for them on their holiday, from the citrus centrepieces and table settings to the desserts table and drinks station.
As captured by photographer Alison Bernier, blue and white striped umbrellas transformed the beach into the Italian riviera, with L'entramise tables and La Tavola linens completing the picturesque setting.
Complementing the scrolling calligraphy on Poppy Jack Shop’s signage, Not Just in Novels added a touch of Tuscany to the tables with fresh lemons and coastal greenery that thoroughly sung of summer, echoing the vibrancy of the birthday girls’ Majolica print playsuits.
Alongside Mama Bear Parties’ face painting, The Pop Shop brought life and light to the party with beautifully bright balloon garlands while Mesh Kids Co stole the show with an entertaining on-trend ball pit!
A dessert table topped with decadent treats left party guests salivating and their sweet tooths satisfied, a fitting way to bid farewell to the Dolce & Gabbana inspired day.
Reminiscent of renaissance tiles, Frost Your Cookie excelled with their hand-painted cookies while Sweet & Saucy Shop took guests on a Roman holiday with their lemon infused cake pops, cupcakes, melt-in-your-mouth macarons and matching birthday cakes.
Until next event,
STYLE YOUR OWN SEASIDE SOIREE!
