A Fresh and Fabulous First Birthday

February 27, 2013

I was delighted to be asked to be involved in the styling of a little girls very special First Birthday Party. Marnie is ultra-cute, full of personality with eyes the size of saucers and a permanent sunny smile. Mummy Hannah let me have pretty much free rein on the decor from Pretty Little Party Shop but we agreed it should be light and fresh with a springtime feel.

Christenings are rarer these days so a first birthday party for children and adult friends and family alike can be such a great opportunity to get together for a big celebration. The decor needed to appeal to children but also provide a pleasant atmosphere for the adults.

The venue was Rubicon Bar in Surbiton, a really lovely space with attractive decor friendly staff and enormous windows! I decided upon spring coloured Poms to fill the windows and pastel coloured tableware. On the tables we put mini milk bottles filled with the first of springs daffodils and added polka dot balloons (a favorite of all children) weighted down with toy building blocks. For the children there were pens and colouring pages, toys and a bubble machine to keep them entertained along with a delicious spread of party food, whilst for the adults the bar was open and there was chat and catching up a-plenty.

Good choice, speedy delivery. Thamks

Perfect for a film party, and perfect size

I wanted popcorn holders for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. These were very easy to pop open. They were a really good size, big enough for enough popcorn, but not too big, so all was eaten! They went down really well with the kids. Great price, and speedy delivery.

Perfect for a film party, and huge!

I hadn't seen this film balloon before. It was so perfect for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. I blew one up (I didn't use helium) and put the other on our window as a decoration. It was great quality, great price and arrived really quickly.

I was doing a film party for my 11 year old daughter. I wanted a few things that would make a big impact. I bought 2 of these. One I blew up (it said helium was needed, but I just blew it up normally.....I was v light headed afterwards 😂). It was spot on perfect, and the other one I put on the window as a decoration. I was very impressed with the quality, price and speed of arrival. Will def buy from here again.
