We absolutely love Chenel of the popular Raising Wildlings blog and have worked with her for the past two years on both of her son’s birthday parties. We have been impatiently waiting to style her beautiful daughter Amelia Skye’s first birthday and not even the national lockdown could stop us as we just scaled down the size of the celebration in order to create something special for them to celebrate.
It was a typical rainy and wintery Cape Town day which meant we had to convert their playroom / study into the party room using the boho rainbow theme as our inspiration. Chenel has always loved this design element which meant it was the natural choice for the theme as Amelia is their rainbow baby.
Our wonderful industry friends really came through for us and ensured our vision was brought to life. We collaborated with Erin and Warren from Happinest Hire who created the most incredible rainbow back drop, round plinths and a mesh backdrop which we styled alongside some items from their Bunny & Hutch range which included a dipped bench and table set and custom painted rainbow chairs. Kikki & Franki created the custom name board which formed part of our backdrop.
Mia and Emma from Cape Town Balloon also brought our balloon vision to life with the most gorgeous balloon garland. Year after year we work with Sabena from Fairy Cakes who out did her self with the two tier rainbow and macrame cake and the accompanying sweet treats of macarons, cupcakes, iced biscuits, marshmallows and rice crispie squares.
We finished the look with our popular PVC party bags filled with more treats, all with matching party stationery and strawberry milk bottles. Custom party favours included were mini play dough pots from Dough Animal.
