When LENZO throws their own Christmas party, of course it is going to be filled with pink, mint and sparkle – the LENZO essentials!
This Christmas was no different, with Kas Richards capturing our girly XMAS at XO Studios perfectly. Styled in collaboration with the amazingly talented Cassie Smith, the shoot aims to promote spending the holiday season with your loved ones and creating a tailored event to match the personality of both you and yours guests. This is why we adopted a LENZOesque palette into our #GirlyLunch!
The settings were styled using furniture selected from Dann Event Hire's latest collections, which coincidentally matched our colour theme perfectly, as well as bold blooms from Bespoke Botanics. Of course it isn't a party without Belle Balloons, so we invited them along to work their magic with an abundance of #BlissfulBalls. To add an extra sparkle to our event, we added twinkling lights from Little Letter Lights Co and #FRESH bespoke confetti stationery from Colour and Skulls.
Obviously we love to do things a bit different here at LENZO and go #BIG+BOLD with trends that we are seeing in the event world. That is why we enlisted the help of the ever so creative Amanda May Lee who created that amazing paper Christmas tree, as well as the disco-esque bauble pinatas! We also added in some strong geometric shapes with our Haymes painted Christmas trees, which we will teach you how to make this Sunday.
For food, Peter Rowland had our back with a delectable spread including scrumptious items such as glazed ham, shaved beetroot, radish + grapefruit salad and kingfish with avocado, radish and wasabi. When dessert time came around, they graced us with yummy strawberry tarts and pistachio ice-creams, with the kids snacking on Bulla Ice Creams. We also just HAD to use some choccys from Love Little Chocolates - they are so pretty, how could you not?!
To match the meal, we also created some bespoke cocktails with Schweppes; The Fennel Fizz + The Chilled Cucumber. These honestly were so yummy and we can't wait to share with you these very recipes over the next few weeks, so you too can get #MERRY with your #MIXOLOGY!
In terms of gifts, we gave the adults an Afternoon Pick Me Up, which is a Melbourne based fresh gift box delivery. As you can see, this was filled with fresh goodies, as well as a mini tree that we are #CRUSHING on! When giving gifts, what is on the outside is just as important as what is on the inside, so that is why we wrapped our presents in the most gorgeous paper from LoveBoard - yes, that is Kanye + JB's face plastered all over them, don't you just love it?!
Models Brittany C, Chloe D and Isabella Quinn (who was also our talented makeup artist for the day) loved getting #PartyReady with the latest clothes from Australian Fashion Labels, #XmasPolish from Say It With Polish, comfy sandals from Bared Footwear and the coolest jewellery we have ever laid eyes upon by Each To Own.
And h0w cute is the Roll'a'Booth we used from Zuster Events? Our mini models Gigi, Saskia and Milla who were dressed like angels in clothing from Seed Heritage loved mucking about in the photobooth, and taking as many selfies as possible! This is one of LENZO's top party tips, to invest in a photobooth for the day, to capture all your magic memories.
Merry Christmas lovelies and we hope you have a safe holiday!
