This is what Felicity shared about the party- “The dessert table was set against a backdrop of hand cut happy faced balloons, Stella is three banner and crazy black shapes all designed by Nina Designs. It was so much easier to just print and cut them out rather than hand drawing them all on card board! On the desert table I had originally planned to make mint and pink the focal colours however lemon yellow became the star of the day when I came across the gorgeous ceramic cake stand, dinner plate and cup from my favorite Australian pottery company Robert Gordon. To highlight the lemon yellow ceramics I used white serving dishes, paper plates and cups and only added a few extra details of the pink and mint. For the serving ware I also contacted Nuria from Chompa handmade to make a custom lemon yellow fabric yarn basket. I filled the fabric basket with yellow balloon lollypops which was another perfect sweet treat. I kept the table bunting simple and used a w hite felt ball garland and scattered mini pink, white and mint pom poms on the table to continue the pom poms used on the party hats.
The children enjoyed my vanilla cupcakes, fondant balloon biscuits and white chocolate and sprinkle spoons! I was really happy with the fondant biscuits and think they are now becoming a true Little Paper Plate signature! The white chocolate spoons worked out so well and were a cheap and easy way to add colour to the dessert table! For the cake I collaborated with friend and now partner in baking crime Rebecca from Becky Hollis-Patel Cakes. Rebecca did an amazing job and I just loved the sprinkles on the cake! I am now officially obsessed with sprinkles!
The walls were decorated with crazy shape cutouts and mint and pink paper streamers to add to the festive feeling. I also created a balloon wall back drop for the photo booth inspired by one of my favorite blogs. For the party activities I decided to keep it simple with an old school vibe of pass the parcel, balloon games and lucky dip! However I had an ulterior motive for the lucky dip, I wanted to create a simple activity and keep the children amused with a new toy! It worked a treat! Instead of making the children put their arm into a scary box I decided just to display them in a yellow wire basket (that is now used as a toy basket)! The lucky dip was topped off with a super cool custom sign made by Nina Designs.
Once again I was so grateful to collaborate the design of the happy balloon party printables with Gabriela from Nina Designs, what a creative talent! Gabriela and I worked on the designed together and wanted to keep the design and colour palette pastel, girly and fun! I am sure you agree how cute the balloon faces turned out! My favorite details were the party hats, cupcake toppers and the amazing 3D lolly boxes!”
