A Magical Garden Party
I’m so excited to show you our first ever styled shoot, A Magical Garden Party for Partyora!The theme needed to be Eco friendly and FUN like our brand.
When my eldest son told me “Mum, this year for my birthday I want an Arty Bug Party with a worm pinata”, I loved his creative idea and so the brainstorming began. I researched and reached out to my connections and they loved it, everyone was on board and a Magical Garden Party was the perfect theme!
There would be fairies, pixies, gnomes, butterflies, bees, lady beetles, mushrooms, flowers and Magical it was! I summoned my inner child and got creative. Together with the wonderful vendors from Partyora and other small businesses involved who were willing to be a part of the shoot, our collective vision came to life!
My boys Orlando, Andre, Roman and Rocco together with their cousin Alexis were our models for the day and were treated to a truly magical and enchanted time.
Captured perfectly by the talented Brittanie from Brittanie Elphick photography, you can view this wonderful collaboration and all that went into creating it here:
Happy Birthday Wall decoration by Rachelle from Honeycomb Living
Designed to be reused and handmade from natural birch plywood, these gorgeous Happy Birthday Wall decorations by Honeycomb Living are a versatile backdrop for everyone in the household to use and we are a little obsessed! We used Blu Tack to style it on the brick wall with hand cut, coloured paper butterflies for the shoot which was so simple but you could decorate using this timber wall sign in so many different ways. They are available for purchase at partyora here
Backdrop Design by Tenneal, Bunnies & Bee
One half of Bunnies & Bee, Tenneal, designed this unbelievable custom Backdrop just for our styled shoot! Complete with mystical fairies, flora and fauna, it truly set the tone for the entire event and Tenneal definitely nailed the brief. You can order this enchanted masterpiece as a printable with us soon!
Boys Outfits by Yanina and Tenneal from Bunnies & Bee
The boys were dressed in these oh-so-soft button up linen jackets in Forest green from Bunnies & Bee. There are matching pants available and other adorable items. Bunnies & Bee was established by sister in law duo, Yanina and Tenneal, who are both fellow Mums of boys. They started their business when trying to find stylish outfit options for their own little boys and are amazing friends of mine. Orlando was wearing his white linen button down top from their collection which can be seen in some more of the photos in this shoot.
Leaf Crowns by Partyora
The outfit wouldn’t have been complete without these adorable custom felt leaf crowns, handmade by our team. One size fits most with these crowns and they can be purchased here in various themed styles soon.
Mushroom Choc mud Cake by Stephanie at Just a spoonful of sugar
The kids were treated to some delightful desserts to feast on like –THAT CAKE! The super talented Stephanie from Just a spoonful of sugar cakes created this Magnificent Mushroom Choc-Mud Cake and I must admit to joining in on the feasting! Stephanie makes custom cakes for all sorts of special occassions and I can personally vouch that they are perfection in each slice!!
Custom Fairy Garden Cupcakes by Cupcakes by Sandra
These delectable Chocolate Fairy Garden Cupcakes with so many tiny details were provided by Cupcakes by Sandra and the kids enjoyed choosing which decorated cupcake they would eat. Some had little lady beeetles, mini mushrooms even tiny caterpillars which were all edible and incredible!

Digital printable Bee themed Thank you sign and Food tent labels customised by Jaclyn from Linen and Wove
The Party printables were so sweet and definitely complimented the theme. Little buzzy bees and bee hives were chosen for our Magical Garden Party setting. The Thank you Sign was set upon a wooden Easel and the food tent labels were customised by Jaclyn for the party food with labels like “Garden Veggies, “Forrest Berries”, “Pixie Punch”. A wonderful finishing touch to a cake table or grazing board spread.
Custom Cotton Tablecloth with matching Bunting and Pass the Parcel set by Partyora
The table was set with paper cups, utensils, napkins and plates with the most beautiful custom tablecloth as the background. This cotton fabric print with little dragonflies and flowers was so pretty!

Wooden Farm Animal set & Milestone Cards by Cherie from Beesy Bags
Setting out a soft play area for the littlest party guests is always a great idea.

These items could be used as gifts for the birthday boy or girl,or part of the pass the parcel! They are available along with other items in our gift section here.
Compostable Confetti by Cindy from Ecoconfetti
Sounds of giggles filled the air when the Eco confetti by Ecoconfetti was tossed around. This confetti is biodegradable and compostable and made using renewable resources. It really feels like a party when guilt-free confetti is tossed into the air. This confetti made for the most amazing photographs that absolutely delighted the children.

Natural Crayons by Courtney from Mikookids
We had Crayons at the table setting and then used them at the activity table. Our little Party goers had time to sit and colour with these natural Hand poured crayons. There were bees, bugs and flowers in so many colours! Setting up a craft or colouring in station helps little ones who may feel anxious or need a quiet space to unwind with all the excitment from a party. These are available as Prefilled party favours on our site here! You can see them in use in some of the photos below!
