Say Aloha lovelies to this too cute Moana themed 4th Birthday, managed by super mum Claire Collected.
Styled by Poppy and Pear Event styling, the theme was inspired by little Ruby's obsession for Moana after a recent visit to Hawaii and their Disney Aulani Resort. We love how mama Claire took something as simple as her daughter's favourite movie, and turned it into a bright tropical haven for Ruby and her friends to have the most magical day in!
Claire shared with us that her favourite part of the day was "that despite the super extra grandiose scale of the party concept, with the help of an incredible stylist, Poppy and Pear Event Styling and several other hands on deck, everything was ready before the party began. This made it possible to soak up every moment of happiness along side Ruby on her special day!"
Note to parents, remember this when you are planning the next party for your little one; sometimes it is better to spend that little bit more money so that you can enjoy the day with your kids!
Of course at a little ones party, you need to set up a corner for the adults too, so we are #OBSESSING over the grown-up flamingo bar. It was the perfect set up for all of Claire's family and friends to chill out while the children were busy being kids.
LENZO loves a tip, and lucky for us, Claire provided us with two key pieces of advice!
1) Confine decorations to predominately one main area (in our case the kids food table and the balloon canopy behind) it created an epic effect that would not have been met if we had tried to dribble decorations throughout the entire house.
2) Get help from an expert. Party stylists are becoming super in vogue these days and I now see why! We could not have done this without Poppy and Pear Event styling. While I most definitely worked myself hard the days leading up and day of, the result wouldn’t have been physically possible on my own. It was Ruby’s theme of course but Ellie had SO many gorgeous ideas that really set it off to another level (not to mention the most amazing balloon garland skills she worked her magic on those Poppies for Grace DIY kits like no other!)
