Behind-the-scenes of The Confetti Academy thrown workshop starring LENZO!
Running two successful businesses – LENZO, Australia’s largest online party hub and LENZO Agency, a full-service corporate experience agency – it’s not often that LENZO founder Elleni Pearce has time to step outside of styling events. But when Megan Ftouni came calling, you betcha she was ready to impart all things party planning with students of The Confetti Academy!
Guest speaker at their action-packed Co-Create Workshop, Elleni – along with LENZO stylists Jamieson Cosgriff and Alissa Huynh – shared the benefits of creative collaboration with Melbourne stylists, bakers and memory-makers, and how to create captivating visual content during a flatlay workshop.
A day of networking, workshopping and collaborating for like-minded party people, Ready To Partea set the entrance of The Wool Mill alight with a beautifully bright balloon display, a fittingly festive welcome for some of the city’s most colourful event entrepreneurs.
An arrival morning tea to remember, guests were treated to sweet sips from Boosa’s pop-up café featuring delicious Snow White shakes, alongside scrumptious donuts and brunch cones by talented caterer By Natascha.
Fabulously fuelled and filled with event excitement, it was time for Elleni to take the stage and share her journey from an advertising teen to party queen!
Captured by Sarah Glasson Photography, Elleni shared her experiences building an events-based business in an informative Q&A, from the challenges of growing a brand while being a mum of three (go girl!) to tricks of the trade and event trends.
An opportunity to present their products to their peers and network amongst fellow party people, the free style flatlay session featured roaming professional photography by Monkee Photo, with LENZO on hand to help style and supervise!
A colour popping co-create dreamscape, a table laden in styling accessories and party props from Five Star Party Co well and truly stole the show! Designed in collaboration with PAPERplayground, the colourful partyware paired perfectly with each guest’s goods.
