Carousel Party Details:
This is what Tanya said about planning the party- “Naomi’s 1st birthday was based around a Carousel theme with shades of purple, green and gold. It has been a wonderful first year and we wanted to celebrate it in a beautiful way. The carousel theme was a reminder of how the ‘carousel of life’ turns so fast and how quickly the first year of Naomi’s life had already flown by!
I fell in love with the carousel printables from Fairydust Stylish Stationery which were used throughout the party and as the focus of the dessert table backdrop. I also decided to incorporate pinwheels to go with the carnival feel.
As much as I enjoy the planning and decorating the favourite part of the day was seeing all the children having fun as they were entertained by a Ballerina & Tin Soldier with lots of games, music, facepainting, balloon animals and a ballerina performance with a ribbon wand which was linked to the party favour of ribbon wands for the kids (made by Dunne with style)
Other party favours also included chalk (by ‘Chalk chook’) in various shapes such as stars, gifted in cute carousel favour boxes made by Bespoke Party Products who also created the Carousel horse chocolate bars. A pretty horse garland created by Hanging Pretty was one of my favourite decorations which hung behind the favour table.
On the dessert table guests were offered macarons with glitter dust, pinwheel chocolate coated oreos, carousel horse cookies and fruit cups as well as choc beans, meringues and persian fairy floss.
Pinwheel decor was incorporated into the Carousel theme with handmade pinwheels in glitter jars and rosettes with pinwheel centres made by Dunne with style. The Cake by Cakes by Sharon also incorporated pinwheel details.
I love personalised elements to a celebration and the personalised canvas was one of my favourite items which captured so many traits of Naomi we wanted to remember.”
