Sometimes, styling an 8-year-old’s birthday can be difficult because you want the right balance of adorable and chic. To show you how it’s done, Dream a Little Dream Events executed this equilibrium perfectly with their Kitty Cat themed soirée! Styled for Life’s Little Celebrations, this 8-year-old’s party was both cute yet classy with a touch of contemporary rusticity.
Influenced by the latest trends in homewares, Dream a little Dream Events opted for muted pastels and neutrals. With tonnes of ivory, nude, blush, rose gold and grey, this colour palette turned this child’s party from an ordinary birthday to an elegant event!
This one sprouted from the all-time classic New York movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Inspired by the scene where Holly runs into an alleyway to rescue her beloved Cat, Dream a little Dream Events decided upon an “Alley Cat” theme. Thus, they designed a “grunge-luxe” style celebration “with an industrial vibe”.
Every piece of decor brought this theme to life. From the rustic table setting to the beautiful balloon garland, to the loveable cakes and even to the milk crates and gorgeous outfits – each individual touch made this event even more magical.
Dream a Little Dream Events’ Styling Tip for Parents
“Take colour cues from your fave themed party-ware to create a cohesive look. You don’t have to use all the same range. Mixing and matching different colours and patterns in plates/ cups, napkins etc. can often suit a theme better and make your party look interesting & high-end.”
