It’s hardly work when we get to hang with a beautiful family and our awesome friends at Food & Desire in creating a fun coming of age celebration!

Thomas’ event design was focussed around a welcoming café feel with an open kitchen that combined industrial elements, modern textures and pops of colour.

The feature 10.8 metre long custom bar cladded in a subway tiles print perfectly framed the epicness that the chefs were creating in the kitchen. A feature bar isn’t complete without some cool branding so we knew the hero had to be the yellow acrylic ‘THOMAS’ sign suspended above the open kitchen and nestled amongst the fresh greenery. This branding continued all the way through to the menus, staff uniforms and other signage.

The tablescape design had to allow enough room for the abundance of Italian inspired share platters so we went with two looks to break up the space. The first design saw crisp natural white linen with fresh seasonal herbs as the centrepiece pop against modern black loft chairs. Then the second design used exposed black timber tables as the base for our custom Olive and fresh greenery trees.

The transformation of this once tennis court to achingly cool café was one of our favourites yet! A massive high five to the team who helped flipped this lunch soiree into a nighttime extravaganza for the kids… @Dann Events @SolutionEntertainment

Our love for Bec Judd, her growing brood (double trouble on the way) and her awesome briefs grows stronger with every collaboration… this time, the brief was to “create a “non-baby-shower, baby shower… something out of the box” (music to our creative and slightly tone deaf ears).

So, in honour of the two little dudes about to make their mark on the family and their home, we took over their house for the day (thanks team Judd) and stripped back the pink and powdery and injected a palette of blues, charcoals and greys.

Then we conjured up a crazy overflowing floral + foliage arrangement on her dining table; starting with painted black foliage through to fresh greens and matte whites.
The monochrome cake by Jo at Splendid Servings was our cherry on top, but the absolute piece de résistance was the black and white balloon installations (of epic proportions).

We kinda let our current balloon obsession get the better of us on this one, lucky we had Sarah and her team over at Belle Balloons make this design a reality!

Giant balloons started from the floor of the pool and exploded 4 metres up from the pool. Yeah, so we went a little cray-cray.

We also worked alongside some other super talented folk; Dann Event Hire for the beautiful contemporary furniture, Adairs for the plush cushions, Safari Living for the sophisticated accessories, Sweet Mickie for the cute as quote cookies and of course, Green Street Juices to wash all them cookies down!

We truly believe that a party isn’t quite complete without these essentials; love, individuality, and of course, free-flowing cocktails. Delightedly, Carolyn + Craig thought exactly that, with their exquisitely unrefined celebrations delivering an abundance of fun and frivolity.

A beautifully tranquil property in country NSW was the poetic surrounding to this epic extravaganza that celebrated not only a 50th birthday, but also a 60th birthday and wedding (yep, you read correctly). But, being the party people we are, we couldn’t wait to throw our hands in the air like we just didn’t care! The styling for Carolyn + Craig’s teeming festivity exemplified awe-inspiring natural beauty. Understated collided with totally chilled vibes, and effortlessly married lush country landscapes with innate colours and textures drawn from an earthy palette.

A monumental deck design, equipped with an in-build bar + food station that featured 360 degree access was the vivid centerpiece to the revelry. Its organic reclaimed timber texture brought an authentically rustic quality to the design, and accentuated the vibrant greenery and floral arrangements that embellished it.

Above, a superbly voluminous canopy of wild native foliage and branches intertwined with rope detailing created a rugged, moody feel.

As an ode to Carolyn + Craig’s beloved horses, a second custom bar – because one sometimes isn’t enough – was dedicated to their precious Willy + Rosie. The high stable bar, complete with gold hinging and beautiful cascading foliage, met with luscious floral tablescape arrangements and tea lights to create the ultimate ‘sipping on delicious cocktails’ atmosphere.

With the afternoon sun casting a radiant light through the transparent marquee, guests were invited to kick back on the wooden pallet couches and soft furnishings of neutral suede pillows, ahead of a very special on stage performance. Enhanced with vibrant crimson arrangements and unruly native greenery cascading down the wall, the stage was a perfectly decorated setting for the insanely talented Wendy

Matthews band. As the sun set, the marquee opened up to a quaint lake view lounge, lit up by draped festoon lighting that angelically reflected off the water in the evening.

We couldn’t be happier for Carolyn + Craig celebrating these symbolic milestones, and we thank you for your trust, and for being as lovely and sweet as the loot bags.

And of course, hi-fives all-round to the extraordinary crew who *literally* turned the party WAY up to unimaginable heights!
