Love Little Big styles a birthday party fit for a pretty ballerina
Well, you know it’s going to be an amazing event when Love Little Big, Burnt Butter Cakes, and Love JK get together to style a birthday party (#TRIPLETHREAT.)
We’ve featured a few of Love Little Big’s events in the past, and every time without fail they slay us with their amazing party skills. This time around, they shared with us gorgeous Emmy’s 5th birthday. Styled by mum Kylie, the birthday party was inspired by traditional ballerina colours and old-school favourite treats with a modern twist.
Set inside the gorgeous private space of This is Life Wellness in Elwood and shot by Anthea Nicoll from Red Rabbit Photography, the venue was decorated by Burnt Butter Cakes in varying shades of soft pinks and creams.
We especially love the pink streamers that were casually draped across the table in lieu of a traditional table runner. And how cute are those mini Bentwood chairs from our friends at Mini Party People?
Check out that beautiful cascading balloon installation by Burnt Butter Cakes, and how it sneaks up into the fireplace. #LOVE!
Burnt Butter Cakes also had the very solemn duty of providing all the delicious desserts (seriously, is there anything they can’t do!?) We love the white plinths and backdrop that were supplied by The Big Letter Co, which made the desserts look even more fabulous.
If you’re looking for ballerina party food ideas, think pink cupcakes with bows, sugar cookies in the shape of ballerinas, and delicious glitter-frosted doughnuts – yum! Kylie tells us the panna cotta with edible flowers and jellies were the most popular… and after fawning over these dessert images, we can see why!
Have you ever seen a more beautiful Dolly Varden ballerina birthday cake? What a classic!
Kylie told us that the ballerina invitations by Love JK were hand-delivered to all of Emmy’s cousins. We think that is such a cute and personalised touch! Emmy knocked on each guest’s door with a beautiful box, and inside the box was their very own Flo dancewear outfit to wear to the party (even the ballet slippers were included!)
And, every ballerina needs flowers on her birthday, which is why Little Jar of Happiness provided just that: a miniature jar of joy filled with lush blooms for Emmy.
This gorgeous pink ballet party has got us wishing we could turn back the clock to celebrate our 5th birthday in style like this!
And finally, LENZO loves a party tip – what is Love Little Big’s?
“Hire a photographer to take the pics – they look so much better than the ones you snap on your phone!”
We couldn’t agree more!
Love, LENZO x
