Up, up & away! Aidan's Up in the air 1st Birthday

We are so excited to feature this incredibly adorable party planned by the ever so talented Lisa Plafadelli from Lettuce and Co.
Lisa shows us how to throw a stylish, fun and down right colourful party for this special little guy! It features such an exquisite collection of furniture, flowers and plenty of fun aspects to make this party unique and down right fantastic!

“The party was held at a private residence in Toorak and our brief was very simple… big, colourful and carnival like and all to fit around the “up in the air” theme. Without it being specific to planes or helicopters we incorporated a truck load of balloons and clouds. This was in the form of a giant balloon garland that ran up the drive, through the trees, up and over the drive way to create an entrance, up the side wall of the house to then weave over the floor and back on the the floor of the back yard…over 20m long! We had a giant white cloud installation above the outdoor feature bar, 6 mini cloud clusters in the marquee, a balloon photo wall, balloon garland cake, mini balloon cupcake toppers and 3 x 7.2m long mini balloon garlands for the banquet dinner setting.”
The backyard was the carnival of all carnivals with a 3 cart ‘up in the air’ themed dessert and candy station under gorgeous marquee, fairy floss and popcorn machines, a kids dining table and chairs with balloon party hats, ball pit, custom designed and made cloud piñata, kids entertainers, face painters, 5 piece band, 3 lounge settings and a double bar. All under the blue skies by day and festoon lit lights by night.
Desserts included cupcakes adorned with hand painted hot air balloon toppers, mint and oreo/orange bloom/vanilla marshmallows, cloud shaped macarons, mini balloon topped mini cupcakes, cloud and hot air balloon cookies, mini donuts, sprinkled chocolate chards.
Our banquet dining tables we dressed in a light blue linen weave table cloth with tangerine coloured linen napkins. Dinner was an Indian feast served buffet style but cooked from the coolest and most colourful Indian food truck.
