An adorable birthday party theme for girls
Hello dolly! Have we got a unique and adorable girls’ birthday theme for you: a vintage doll party!
This nostalgic concept was inspired by birthday girl Peita's love of dolls, and her mum's vintage cane collection. Jo Kalivas Events & Styling was provided with the creative direction by Peita's mum, who then took the lead with the styling. The result? A sweet-as-homemade-pie party!
The dolls and their gorgeous rattan chairs were added to the tablescape and desserts bar to incorporate the theme into all the elements. Jo tells us, “Themes don’t have to be obvious or out there – this simple theme came from Peita’s love of her dolly and pram!”
If you want to recreate this look, all you need to do is take the party outdoors and set up some plush rugs and cushions around a trestle table... et voila, an alfresco tea party!
The space was further enhanced with a gorgeous cascading balloon installation by Bellino & Co, and vintage elements such as a three-wheel bicycle and stroller. We love the little touch of a personalised pillow inside the pram, and the jumbo wooden ‘P’!
And, let’s not forget the most important part of any party: the dessert! Baked lovingly by Sydney Dessert Co, her mini cups of deliciousness were certainly a main feature of the day! The pink and gold colours of the mini cupcakes, cake cups and, edible bonbonniere popped against the white vintage bar cart, which was used to display the desserts.
And yes, that gorgeous dollhouse is in fact the cake, also creatively baked by Sydney Dessert Co.
Happy birthday, Peita! We hope you had a magical birthday!
Love, LENZO x
