A celestial treat by PAPERplayground and Something White Events
With just five days to go until the spookiest day of the year, we thought we’d treat (excuse the pun!) our amazing readers to a double Halloween editorial. Once again, this BOO-tiful setup was styled and created by none other than PAPERplayground and their partner-in-crime Something White Events!
The theme of the event was “Ghosts and the Galaxy,” and it was inspired by the gorgeous Daydream Society partyware from LENZO faves Ruby Rabbit. This celestial twist consisted of ghosts, iridescent stars and crescent moons… and of course, PINK!
We love any artists who have the ability to adapt their wide set of styling skills to just about any theme, and the duo did not disappoint! This editorial was a stark contrast from their previous year’s Halloween party, where purple, black, and orange reigned.
Just check out the images below and prepare to be amazed!
With the party held at a private residence in Sydney, it turned out to be a global affair with the kid’s costumes by Hello Flox flown in from Jakarta, Indonesia; the macaron and cookie wall displays by The Donut Wall Stylist from Melbourne; and the kid’s Halloween party favours by TownleyGirl from New York!
Along with Halloween costumes, a kid’s Halloween party wouldn’t be complete without some delectable desserts for the kids to dig their fangs into, which is why PAPERplayground and Something White enlisted the help of not one but SIX bakers!
The lucky little guests were served a crystal cake by Scarlet Jade Austin, a galaxy splatter cake by Sugar Cloud Cakes by Juny, a ghost cake by La Petite Pops, crystal geode macarons by Arelio Sweetbox, and mini cupcakes + ghost meringue kisses by Dous Dolce! Don’t they just look absolutely #AMAZING!?
HIRE: pink glass cake stand
BUY: personalised cookies
No cake is complete without a cake topper! This spooky one was made by none other than Communicakeit.
Check out those donut walls by The Donut Wall Stylist! We think hiring a donut wall is still one of the easiest ways to serve dessert to guests at a party – and they look so pretty, too!
HIRE / BUY: cake toppers
And of course, it’s all about the little details that truly make an event. Details like the stationery (creatively made by PAPERplayground – who else!?), drink stirrers, as well as the furniture and décor (hired from The Treasure Room) all play well together to create that cohesive theme.
Astrid from PAPERplayground also revealed her favourite Halloween decorations:
“We loved creating our own balloon garland for this shoot (using Poppies for Grace balloon kit from Ruby Rabbit). Not to mention hand-making the “Spooktacular” sign – both made by the very talented Brooke from Something White Events!”

LENZO loves a party tip – what is PAPERplayground’s?
“Our party tip is to be prepared: a few days before the event, always do a mock-up of how you envision the setting will be. This means sketching, and then creating the setting at home, and taking photos of it so on the actual day you have a visual guide to how and where everything is meant to go. This will cut your set-up time in half!”
As stylists ourselves, we can definitely agree with that!
And on that final note, we wish you and your family a very happy Howl-o-ween!
May your treats be many and your tricks be few -
Love from the LENZO crew x
