Minimalist Monochromatic Scandinavian Camping Party
Minimalist Monochromatic Scandinavian Camping Party Details:
This is what was shared about the party-
“Daddy Dan and Mummy Kim love the elegant simplicity and sophistication of Scandinavian design. Plus a unique theme. Plus a departure from the usual over the top cute-sy themes for their little adventurer, Dylan. They chose a Monochromatic Scandinavian Camping theme as a nod to Dylan’s European roots, and the parent’s penchant for Nordic style and the great outdoors.
The parents wanted a bright, modern and minimalist aesthetic that had kid-friendly spaces and got Kaye Garcia on board to execute our vision which we got from pegs mostly from Instagram, Pinterest, and design magazines.
The hallmark of Scandinavian style is a less is more philosophy – we wanted to incorporate this in most of the design elements of the party. We wanted a style that is distinctly modern and understated characterized by clean lines and simple forms.
A three-dimensional block in a black and white Scandinavian inspired design by Paper and Print by Unico and printed by Amis Print is the invitation.
White fabric draped the ceiling and walls of the Manila Polo Club’s main ballroom, giving it an instant brightening effect. It also gives it a light and airy feel and added just the right amount of three-dimensional pastel clouds as an accent. She brought the outdoors in and replaced the dark wood floors of the venue by covering the whole floor wall to wall with astroturf grass giving it a lush outdoorsy feel.
We focused on creating a stage backdrop that was a mixture of strong straight lines and geometric forms in the form of hand-painted wooden mountains and animals accentuated by a mix and match of repetitive bold patterns that feature playful patterns and dramatic contrast which was designed specifically for the celebrant, Dylan.
The stylist put greater emphasis on subtle design elements like shape and texture when on the table centerpieces with big hand painted wooden mountains blocks and fluffy paired with glass bowls filled with fluffy oversized marshmallows. (A few lucky guests got to bring home these personalized engraved mountains with their names on it)
It’s all in the Details: Kaye provided the perfect backdrop for The Cottontail Studio’s amazing 3 Dimensional monochromatic (which was something that they had not yet done before too) birthday cake and camping inspired confectionary works of art.
We wanted activities that encouraged imaginative play, so we created areas where children can play with wooden toys and hired The Nest Party and Play Pad, a mobile mini town and face and body painter Cha Reyes. There was also a teepee and reading nook provided by one of our favorite local children’s furniture brand and personalized wall banner supplier, Pottly and Tubby.
Black and white toy bags were given as souvenirs due to Swedish children’s brand Tellkido was one of the ig accounts that Mummy Kim got inspiration from.
Personalized Wall Banners with unicorns, mermaids, and inspirational outdoorsy graphics were a giveaway as well. Pottly and Tubby personalized on the spot with a choice of foil stamped or glitter stamped name personalization.
We got Pouf Cotton Candy to add a sense of whimsy with their fun and delicious creations.
Party with Jive’s high energy entertained the kids with dancing and singing for three solid hours”.
