MUM'S THE WORD - MOTHER'S DAY EDITORIAL

April 17, 2018
MUM'S THE WORD - MOTHER'S DAY EDITORIAL

A mustard + pink Mother’s Day treat from LENZO

To all the mamas out there – you rock! And it’s time we showed you how much we love you + appreciate all the hard work you have done for us while growing up! They say the scariest hood you’ll ever go through is ‘motherhood’, so this May 13 we want to salute all the working mothers, the domestic goddesses, and the mums-to-be out there with a very special LENZO editorial.

This one was very close to our hearts, as our director, Elleni, is a mother of two gorgeous girls (and is expecting a baby boy in September!) Drawing inspiration from current autumn fashion trends, we styled a floral-filled luncheon with Modern-Day Mamma Jessi Roberts and her ultra-photogenic family.

Shot by the lovable Kas Richards at the picturesque Trentham Estate in VIC, there was no better location to host our Mother’s Day lunch. The fusion of mustard + pink was unlike anything we’d ever seen before in the events world – and we predict it will be a more iconic duo than Kylie and Kendall!

We teamed up with some of the best food + event suppliers in Australia to spoil one lucky mum and her three children. If you haven’t made any plans yet, why not host a Mother’s Day lunch? LENZO can show you how…

The Balloons: Moonshot Balloons

When it comes to Mother’s Day celebrations, you don’t hold back on your decorations! We asked Moonshot Balloons to install a sweeping balloon installation from floor to ceiling above the table and beside the sofa. Using different-sized balloons in shades of pastel pinks, greys, and mustard, it was a great way to add a bit of fun to an important event.

The Florals: Hi Petal

It really goes without saying, but flowers are a non-negotiable must-have for your mother’s day celebration! We enlisted the help of Hi Petal to create an abundance of fresh floral arrangements to enhance the white space of Trentham Estate. Placed in the cutest vases and scattered around the venue – including on the shelves and bar cart, and as the table centrepieces – these on-theme blooms lit up the space and gave some sweet scents, too!

The Desserts: Miss Ladybird Cakes

In continuing with our floral motif, Miss Ladybird Cakes added the prettiest of touches to these cookies with edible watercolour sketches of roses and #LOVEHER. Check out the delicate detailing on these gorgeous cookies!

Can we also please pause for a moment to take in these three cakes? (Obviously, this occasion is so meaningful that we needed not one, but three!) We love how Miss Ladybird Cakes was so on-point with our brief that all her cakes and desserts featured pink and/or touches of gold + florals!

The Stationery: The Sundae Creative

When creating a theme, it’s important that everything is coordinated – right down to the place cards, menu, and drink tags. For The Sundae Creative, it was simply a matter of incorporating our mustard + pink semi-circle pattern into the stationery design, which they effortlessly accomplished. An unusual yet beautiful hue of teal crept in, to add an extra dimension to the colour palette.

It’s All in the Details: Dann Event Hire

We asked our friends at Dann Event Hire to help us with the tableware and seating, and they did not disappoint! From the brushed matte gold cutlery and drinking straws to the amber glassware and pink chairs, everything was simply on-point.

The Decals: Pickawall

You also may have noticed the little stickers placed around the venue - these were artistically printed by none other than Pickawall! We’ve used their services before (in Rozalia Russian’s recent Mediterranean birthday party) and the feedback was so amazing that we just couldn’t wait to use them again! We especially love how easy it was to send off our semi-circles pattern for them to print + incorporate into the floor stickers, placemats, and service bar panels.

The Gifts: The Hamper Emporium

And, of course, you can’t forget the reason behind celebrating Mother’s Day: it’s all about spoiling her rotten! Our grateful mum received a gorgeous hamper from The Hamper Emporium.
