Who run the world? GIRLS! Here’s to raising strong women on V-Day…
If you needed any more proof that little girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, you only need to look at this incredible poolside Galentine’s Day feature by PAPERplayground and Something White Events!
The creative duo got together once again to style a fresh take on Galentine’s Day. The theme was loosely based on inspiring little girls to celebrate female friendship, empowering one another, and supporting women and their accomplishments - along with the love and kindness that Valentine’s Day projects.
The positive vibes were mainly reflected and communicated through the paperie and goody bags that Astrid from PAPERplayground created for the day. She chose songs from strong female artists that featured positive lyrics and a healthy dose of attitude – exactly what this all-female team at LENZO loves to hear!
The shoot is truly incredible, which is why we’re going to let the photos speak for themselves…
Astrid and Brooke were inspired by the Aussie summer and envisioning the perfect Galentine's Day celebration: sitting by the pool with your bestie and treating yourself to some desserts, gifts, flowers, and balloons (and isn’t that what all girls truly love?)
The team injected mustard and yellow to reflect this sunshine into the traditional colour palette of Valentine’s that is red and pinks, and added peaches and grey to complement! This is evident in that gorgeous balloon installation by Bondi Balloons sitting pretty by the pool.
How could you miss the fresh blooms entwined in amongst the balloons by Buds and Bowers? This is a styling element we will never tire of seeing!
The lucky little guests were served petite desserts by Lovelle Creations, cake pops by La Petite Pops, and macarons by Arelio Sweetbox – all of which were placed on gorgeous + on-theme partyware by party supplies queen Ruby Rabbit. Doesn’t the entire set-up just look absolutely #AMAZING!?
And can we just pause for a minute to check out that scrumptious cake by Sugar Cloud Cakes by Juny?! YUM X3!
We think next year we’ll take a leaf out of Something White + PAPERplayground’s book and ditch the boys to spend it with our favourite gals instead!
LENZO loves a styling tip - what did PAPERplayground share with us?
“Order extra desserts, and put aside a couple of each for yourself! You’ll be so busy on the day of the event that you might not be able to try all the desserts yourself!
I've spoken to some clients and they tell me they didn't even get to try ANY of the desserts on the day - so I always have a box stashed away!
I also like to make sure I have a copy of each of the prop items, whether it's the invitation, party hats, or thank you tags. They make great keepsakes you can treasure, and also makes a great flat lay photo once the party is done and dusted!”
Love, LENZO x
