FEATURED PARTY - Elyse's Fluoro Floral First Birthday

We're so excited to bring you another FEATURED PARTY, showcasing a beautifully thought out first birthday, using our Fluoro Floral Party Kit. Here's to you, Aulia:

  • Who was the party for? My daughter Elyse's first birthday.
  • How many guests? We had about 70 people in attendance consisting of family and close friends.
  • Venue? It was held at a local Neighbourhood house which we hired for the day. 
  • Why did you choose the Fluoro Floral theme? I had themed the whole party based on the pretty fluoro floral dessert plates. Including Invitation, colour theme of decorations and cake.

  • What was your favourite part of the day? Witnessing all the kids having a great time and enjoying themselves including the birthday girl! There were 27 kids and all 27 seemed to be having an awesome time!
  • What sort of food/cake was on the menu? Elyse's fluoro cake was a vanilla sponge layered with fresh raspberry buttercream, fresh raspberries and chocolate ganache.

  • Why was it important to celebrate this occasion? It was important for us to host this party because it was a celebration of our family surviving, I mean, enjoying Elyse's first year. With Elyse being the youngest of four it was also an excuse of having the last chance to celebrate a first birthday!
  • Two tips for other party planners?
    1. Getting things done early is the key. I had set tasks a couple of months in advance. Set goals of when I needing certain aspects of the party done. Having to juggle daily routines of four children and organising a party was quite a challenge but I would dedicate a couple of hours after putting the kids to sleep solely on completing tasks i.e. invitations, lolly bags etc. 
    2. Checklists are a must! My check list saved me the morning of. I had written a list of everything that needed to be packed and brought to our venue. I am THE best at forgetting things. I would have forgotten a stack of stuff but with my list this wasn't the case!

Aulia, thanks so much for letting us be a part of Elyse's special day. You did an amazing job putting it all together - with four children, you probably feel like a pro by now!
