Tonight on The Edit, LENZO embraces the summer sun, as we kick off the party season with our Kid’s Beach Party editorial! We were so lucky to work with some of our favourite traders, including the talented Kassi from Hello Darling Photography.
The shoot was initially inspired by the beauty of Melbourne’s beaches, and the pure bliss you get when relaxing down by the sea. We wanted to encapsulate this feeling throughout the entire shoot by going #BRIGHT + #FUN.
Kellie from Castle and Cubby initially came to us with her colourful vision of creating a mini beach box with her custom made cubbies, and the LENZO team brought this to life through our manic styling efforts! These are now listed through LENZO, and are available both for hire and purchase - the perfect party addition, or childhood keepsake. The cubby was painted in a vibrant blue palette using Haymes Paints - A colour choice of Pitty Pat, L'Mar, Meandering Stream + Jamacian Sea for your reference!
Our little models definitely had a great time splashing about in their swimwear + accessories from Cotton On Kids, and trust us when we say it was hard to get them changed at the end of the day! We are loving the vibrant block colours and simple patterns - and see this as a massive trend for both the bubs and the adults on the fashion + interior forefront. So a definite #WatchThisSpace for 2016!
Now when planning a kids party, it is always super important to have the food #OnPoint, as no one wants #HANGRY children running about! We wanted a healthier option, so Jay's Yoghurt created some delectable #FroYo that the little ones customised their self with various tasty toppings! And for a little #SweetFix, Loved by LENZO Trader The Candy Shop, provided the #Sugar+Spice with a range of their favourite lollies! Seriously, these guys are the perfect one stop shop for party treats, and even have hampers dedicated entirely to candies - #YUM!
For furnishings, we couldn’t go past the vibrant printed and coloured stock from interior royalty, Fenton and Fenton. Their inventory of cushions, beachware + inflatables added so much substance to the shoot, and made us all super excited for what’s to come during these warmer months! And for that extra #POP of colour, Whirly provided the goods with their rainbow windmills – a #RETRO trend that is seeing a comeback!
It was a nostalgic feeling waddling back to our cars with our shoes in hand and a whole heap of sand in our hair, just knowing that what we created was everything LENZO aims to be - both fresh and fun! And before we go, if you are still bursting for more, make sure to check out the #SuperCute video below by Dream Catcher Kids.
Happy summer lovelies!
