Festive fun with your favourite party stylists!
We’ve had an extraordinary year at LENZO elevating everybody’s events. As super busy stylists planning parties for babies and brides and businesses (oh my!), it’s been hard to stop and smell the sensationally styled roses … until now.
When planning an end of year party to share with our LENZO loving community, we decided a fun and festive feast complete with this season’s most coveted Christmas styling was in order. Who better to enjoy the seasonal spoils? Our stylists were signed, sealed and delivered!
Our silly season soiree (sans Santa hats and holly!) began by styling our celebration setup.
Bringing our floral fantasies to life, A Peachy Affair set the supplier bar high with romantic feathery flowers and foraged foliage the likes of which we’ve never seen. Taking our breath away with its sheer beauty, A Peachy Affair painstakingly built a native foliage Christmas tree by hand for our celebration was the most stylish start to our day. Leaving its beautiful branches bare, its silvery sage green leaves matched our on-trend Christmas colour scheme.
OneMimosaPlease brought our party palette to life in a suite of 3-D modern stationery that would make any guest merry! In dusty pink, bottle green and whisper white, OneMimosaPlease menus stood proudly on our plates alongside personalised place cards. Complementing their cool acrylic contribution to our ‘LENZO Christmas’ wreath, contemporary frosted coasters and drink lip tags completed their stunning supplies.
Rarely finding ourselves behind the lens, we called on Carla Dyson and her girlie glam squad for camera-ready hair and makeup. Feeling all kinds of gorgeous in sequins and satin from AUS Fashion Labels, Billini heels and festive frosting from jewellery biz Jackie Mack Designs made us all feel like a million (merry) bucks!
With the same anticipation felt before Santa’s exciting arrival, nothing delivers more joy at Christmas than a seasonal spread. A place where guests come to congregate at Christmas, we designed a table setting that married sophisticated styling with all things merry and bright!
Dotting our dining table with Christmas décor and beautiful Venetian glass baubles, My Christmas helped create a festive fantasia that took us back to our childhoods - the kind we can’t wait to mimic in our own homes this December.
Inspiring fellow creatives across the country at sold out styling events, LENZO Founder and Director Elleni Pearce has had a busy year as a corporate events stylist. Despite all the amazing activations and dazzling do’s she’s styled, her son’s first birthday was by far her favourite occasion.
For LENZO General Manager Alissa Huynh, working with Westfield - in particular, on Taste. Shop. Play. - was a highlight from her year, while Graphic Designer and Stylist Jamieson Cosgriff was excited to be work with the Pullman Melbourne on Swanston for their grand opening. Coral Deverick, Digital Marketing, loved planning our most recent kids party editorial, while I (Michaela Skilney) loved bringing you all of the above via The EDIT!
Looking at the luscious creme fraiche, caviar and pickled cucumber ribbons, or the beetroot and vodka cured salmon tartlets served with ginger, horseradish and dill, it’s easy to see why Fara Feasts were the caterers of choice for LENZO’s lovely Christmas lunch.
From fresh oysters with gin infused finger lime caviar to traditional chicken sandwiches elevated with bacon and green apple, Fara Feasts came to the table (quite literally!) with a summer-inspired selection that was as creatively plated as it was creatively planned.
A feast for the eyes, our merry minds will forever meander to the spiced citrus ham when remembering the day’s celebrations, along with a mouth-watering cheese board complete with pickled pear, Syrian fig jam and honeycomb.
Bringing out the wide-eyed child in all of us, My Christmas created a sparkle filled setting to devour delicious sweet treats in after lunch. Dressed to the nines in silver snow, handcrafted wooden ornaments and pretty glitter poinsettias, three artificial trees stood proudly above us - our gorgeous gifts to unbox at their fabulous feet.
A little too early for Old Saint Nick to stop by, The Hamper Emporium brought the magic of Christmas morning to our celebration with beautiful boxed treats and holiday hampers. The most hampernin’ way to surprise someone special, The Hamper Emporium make Christmas gifting all the more easy with their luxury line of hampers filled with festive food and wine.
Giggles galore exploded after we gave out our gifts, thanks to a super sweet sugar fix provided by LaManna Patisserie! Party pastries don’t come more Christmassy than these, with stacked sprinkle cookie Christmas trees, vanilla bean cupcakes and a white chocolate dipped cannoli tower among the decadent desserts we demolished as a team.
A fresh alternative to a figgy pudding, LaManna Patisserie’s white chocolate mudcake was the pièce de résistance, crowned in ruby red raspberries, beautiful blueberries and elegant licks of gold leaf.
Refreshments were well and truly in order, and a Valiant Events bar played the part outdoors. Complementing our on-trend Christmas colour scheme, Valiant Events’ gorgeous olive green stools were the perfect place to soak up the sun and scheme on bringing their pastel pink lounges home to LENZO HQ!
Christmas comes but once a year, so when the festivities are done and dusted, let LENZO to breathe magic into life’s other meaningful moments.
From romantic engagements and weddings to fun first birthdays, baby showers and hens days, LENZO’s party stylists and corporate event planners love styling celebrations that speak of you and your special occasion.
Until next event,
MAKE IT MERRY WITH LENZO’S MARKETPLACE!
