FIT FOR A PRINCESS
I’m sure we all have days when we wish we could return to being a child.. just for a few hours even? I’m certainly re-living some childhood dreams through Sophie’s adorable pink princess party – I mean, what little girl wouldn’t love this?! Sophie is so lucky to have a mum with such awesome baking and prettifying skills! Our favourite detail? That floral photobooth wall! And we’ll be showing you how to make your own right here, very soon!
As someone that loves all things pretty and having the amazing opportunity to photograph some of the most stunning styled shoots, not to mention weddings, I become extremely giddy when its time to start organising my daughters birthday parties.
I love the creative and aesthetic elements of planning her party from the concept through to executing my vision with handmade details, themes, colours and props.
With the added benefit of Sophie’s birthday being in July and a fairly big garden, it’s always a good idea to have her celebrations in the garden…..not to mention it keeps all the mess outside!
So with the party being held outside, I decorated the garden with a mixture of fresh cut flowers, supplied by the very talented Liz from Bluesky Flowers, along with different shades of pink pom poms and white love heart banners whilst keeping the confetti filled balloons and paper bag party bags indoors!
When it came to the food, this year I decided I would try my hand at a few homemade party table treats, opting for fruit kebabs, coloured sprinkle bread, ice cream cupcakes, love heart cupcakes and white chocolate mashmellow pops – all fairly simple to make and taste delicious.
With the food and decoration all in order, next up was a party entertainer. I booked Pixie from Pixies Parties, who was incredible and managed to keep all 15 children entertained and busy for two hours with dancing, balloon making, games, face painting and much more.
For the last remaining 15 minutes of the party and being a photographer, I decided I would do a fun and relaxed children’s photo booth. I bought some girl and boy photo booth props from Paper Chase and with some left over flowers I created a flower wall backdrop (a flower wall diy feature is to follow shortly, so keep you eyes peeled).
At the end of the party I had one very happy birthday girl asking what are we doing next year…..sigh!
