Last weekend we celebrated Miss Pipers fifth birthday with her greatest showman themed birthday party! Our little Piper is utterly obsessed with the greatest showman. From the moment she heard the soundtrack she was in love. She loved everything about it from the music to the costumes and of course the love story between Anne Wheeler and Phillip Carlyle. She was absolutely set on being a mini Anne Wheeler at her next birthday party no matter what! So we started organising!
As the months went by Piper would come to us with her own little ideas and dreams for her party that she’d thought up with her little imagination. My personal fave was “MUM! We could get a tightrope and a trapeze and I could show everyone my tricks!” yeah as you can probably imagine we decided to go against that idea but we did go with her idea of a red carpet, golden animals and a buffet with sushi.
We were lucky enough to have the incredible @bris.powerhouse as our venue. We used the rooftop terrace and had a spectacular view of the Brisbane river. The styling was all down to the beautiful people at @avideas_ and balloons were from @BigWAustralia. The theming work was so incredible and fully transformed the room transporting us into a vintage circus inspired world of The Greatest Showman. I got the incredible cake from the wonderful bakery @veganyumm and it was so delicious! The rest of the catering was done by the girls at @ThePlatterPlace. We had a completely vegan grazing table complete with sushi and rice paper rolls! It was so incredible and everyone could not stop talking about it! The entertainment this year was done by the beautiful Natty from @StrawberryFundaeEvents. Natty was a dream and the kids absolutely adored her. From dance parties and games to photos and cake cutting Natty did it all. Now last but definitely not least little Miss P’s costume was from @littleSchnucki, Piper was so obsessed with her costume it was so beautiful.
We had an absolute ball celebrating Miss P’s 5th birthday! Here are some photos from the special day taken by the incredibly talented @emmajadephotographer
This weekend we celebrated three years of Miss Piper with a colourful rainbow unicorn party in the backyard and I’m so excited to share the details of the day with you all.
We enjoyed the company of friends and family and the day could not have been more perfect.
On the big day I was so determined not to stress myself out and keep it as easy as possible. So most of the organising and planning was done in the month before, then we setup most of it on the day before so that the morning of the party we only had some food to prepare and some extra decorations to hang.
Being three years old, I didn’t spend any time trying to organise any games I hired a (unicorn) pony from Magical Ponies Party Hire that was a massive hit and the kids spent time riding around and taking turns. All of them except Piper who decided on the day that she was scared of the pony and cried every time she tried to ride him!
It wouldn’t have been half as fun and successful if it hadn’t been for the help from some amazing business that all deserve the BIGGEST Thankyou for the time and effort they put into helping me plan this special day I have added them below and can’t recommend all of then highly enough, if your party planning be sure to visit and let them help you too.
We had so much fun choosing our decorations this year from the AMAZING Parties Made Pretty. The range is HUGE and they were literally my one stop shop this time around having everything I needed in all the right colours.
The party wouldn’t have been the same without the amazing personalised invitations, chocolates and printed items from the fabulous Print and Party her amazing unicorn invitations is where I got the original idea for the theme and with all the personalised printed bits and pieces she has to offer it just tied everything together.
The candy buffet was topped off with this amazing Gold name plaque from the amazing Bubz and Co. Go check them out if you love sparkly goodness as much as we do.
The table was decked out with decorative goodies and small bite sized delicious food, everything I picked I tried to make sure it could be made the day before or even a few days before to reduce the stress.
Being the fashionista that Piper is the ‘Birthday Oufit’ is always on the top of our list of priorities and we went with highly fashionable and colourful designs from the most amazingly talented designers. Tinker Bell Tailor , BB and Bub and Party Princess Australia check out our instagram for more photos and details on the fab Auistralian designers. The photos speak for themselves.
The stunning fashion photos above were taken by the amazing Sarah @my.heart.project she is so patient and kind to work with and her photos are something you will treasure forever. I highly recommend getting a photo shoot before the big day, it takes so much stress off you trying to get that ‘perfect’ picture on the day. I just can’t recommend Sarah highly enough please if your looking for a lifestyle or fashion photographer make her your first stop.
The day ended with our guests excitedly leaving with the most stylish confetti themed party boxes for boys and girls from the talented mumma’s from The Loot Lab – eight options are available and each comes in the cutest lunchbox filled with high quality treasures.
Plus the cutest healthy and fun alternative to lolly bags Dough 4 Fun play dough party favors, designed to match our theme and personalised in unicorn colours with glitter they were a huge hit and will be making an appearance at all my kids parties from now on.
So that’s was Three, a fab day spent with our favourite people, opening presents, eating yummy food and riding unicorn ponies around the yard. Then throw in some super doper party decorations and stunning fashion and it makes becoming a threeanger a ball.
Thankyou again to all the talented people involved in making Pipers day so special, you all made my life so much easy and took all the stress out of party planning, I can’t thank you all enough xx
Love Kerry and Miss Piper xoxo
