{Client Feature Event} Fletchers Splash Pool Party

Splash Collage

I’ve been busting to share the photos from this gorgeous party for such a long time. Last year the gorgeous Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design came to me armed with a brief and a few inspirational pics to develop an invitation for her sons ‘Splash’ 3rd Birthday Party. 

And so, with the element of ‘Bubbles’ in mind, together we developed to creative Fletchers invitation, party bags, welcome sign and backdrop and cookie art. Embedded within the design was my love for retro inspired typography. The colours were reflective of the ocean with a little bit of sunshine for good measure.

Gillian went to work on the gorgeous cake with Fletcher sliding into his pool. The the styling of the whole event was reflective of Gillians clean and modern approach, I love that she incorporated the folded towels into the beverage stand, bringing together the reflection of a true pool side party! The drink dispenser was simply green cordial, giving a boost of colour to the layout. Gillian made the cookies with edible transfers – a clever way of incorporating the creative onto the table.

Bubble garlands and bubble spoons (by our decor brand Red Elephant Creative) decorated the beverage station and buffet. The favour bags were also a part of the bespoke package by Penny Lane Studio.

Next week we have a gift to share, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this picky, its a far cry from the tacky rose red and pink hearts on white which, well I just can’t bring myself to adore…but when I spied this fabulous styled pic, I felt relief to find truth that valentines can be uber cool…like you and me, really 🙂

Stay tuned for next weeks gift…from yours truly, to help make your valentines, well, uber cool…with a Penny Lane Design, of course! 🙂

Inspired event styling: Layers in White


We are 6 days from my youngest first birthday and lets say I am less than organised. It seems that everyones birthday falls in September and I am blessing my lucky stars that business has been crazy busy. The one thing that I have organised is the Cake. When asked what colour I would like the icing, I asked for white….’Wouldn’t you like anything else?’ asked the baker, ‘the white might be a bit plain.’

Truth be told I will be adding other accents of colour in true red elephant style, but the statement did get me thinking…is white plain? Does a white background, with white feature pieces and white accents get totally washed out with, well, white?

This week I bring to you a new feature to the red elephant creative blog of inspired event styling to, well, inspire… this weeks focus is Layers in white and I am sure you will agree, there is no wash out in this beautiful styling, with a balance of contrasting texture combined with natures neutrals, done well white definitely makes the right statement.
