Pastel County Fairy Party Details:
This is what Lucia shared about the party- “Some gorgeous wooden carousel horses and the enchantment of Mary Poppins were the inspiration be-hind the theme for Allies fifth birthday party.
We wanted to create the magic of the chalk drawing scene from the 1960s Mary Poppins where the eponymous nanny and her charges are transported into a chalk, pavement drawing of a country fair, says stylist Lucia Philip of Something Wonderful Happened. We really channeled the technicolor pastels from the scene. I wanted to capture that childlike wonderment, where anything is possible and everyday outings become beautiful adventures.
Mint green, pink, periwinkle blue and mango orange were the basis for a colour palette that was bright and sweet.
The menu took its cue from a country fair with gourmet cakes and cupcakes, mango pannacotta topped with fairy floss, handmade biscuits and old fashioned lollies. Guests sipped homemade lemonade and snacked on home made pies.
The childrens tables were set up as if in an outdoor café, complete with pink and white gingham table clothes. On each table was a gorgeous mini picnic basket that included a drink, cutlery and a stunning pin wheel biscuit for each of the guest. Guests, young and old, played old-fashioned games such as Ring toss and Knock down the tin cans, with balloons from the balloon stand and fairy floss for prizes.
A special thank you to Pure Baby Australia who kindly made their beautiful carousel horses available to us for re-purposing!”
