It is the attention to detail that makes a well-themed event stand out. There is a delicate balance between harmonised details accentuating a theme and still creating intrigue and magic that goes beyond the guest's expectation, leaving a lasting impression.
My experience as a graphic designer means that I can initiate this styling and visual theme from the invitation or event promotion material, all the way through to any printed items required for the event. I then extend this all the way through the event styling of decoration, costumes, food, entertainment, favours etc.
When it comes to what I offer as an event service it very much depends on the scope of the project and budget. This could start by providing you with a themed suite of printables all the way through to complete coordination.
Below are some photos of various events I have styled. Simply click on the arrows to flick through.

This event was nothing short of EPIC! Invitations included a stamped RSVP postcard that also asked guests to choose what the wanted in their food box and a proper TICKET.
On arrival children gathered in the lounge before being led outside to the "tent" where there were performances from a magician and dancer, a popcorn and candyfloss machine, games, a prize wall, a lollie cart, and a photobooth. BRIGHT & FUN!
Fairies, elves and pixies gathered in a transformed house, dined on a kid sized banquet table, played musical toastool, went on a treasure hunt and picked their goodie bags from a magical tree.
For this 40th the name of the festival was changed to WOODGATE as this is the name of the street where the party was to be held. Hay bales, guitars, peace signs, trees, barefoot dancing to Janis Joplin, themed wine in wheelbarrows, flowers everywhere and an invitation themed off a song.

For this Christening we provided all of the printable designs for the client to then style at the event. The colours and design of the invitation set the tone for the whole event.
Inspired by the invitation we created a bright colourful food table complete with picket fence backdrop, bright colours, butterflies, garden gnomes and themed party food with a healthy twist! The table decorations of marigolds in tins became take home gifts and the gift bags contained flowers to colour in, bubbles and whirling bee and beetle sticks to put in the garden.
HIGH TEA FOR APPLE
This Hig Tea baby shower had its theme set around the Mum to Be's nickname for her baby, Apple. Pastel colours, old tea sets, crystal vases she had collected for and used at her wedding, hanging decoration glass windows, blue mason jars, flowers, lace table cloths, paper fans as thank you gifts and lots of apples.
Frozen was a movie loved by these two sisters, even their names started with E (eldest) and A (youngest). This party was held well before the Frozen partywares had hit the shops but we think it is oh so much more special because of it. Christmas tree sans decoration and instead strewn with fake snow, whispy icy material hung, snowmen to build and chocolate fondue!
A Blessingway is an alternative to a Baby shower that is more mother focused. Harking back to the rituals, ceremonies and traditions of ancient cultures it is a heartfelt, intimate celebration of pregnancy. We created a beautiful sacred space with a bell tent for the women's circle, simply and elegantly decorated to fit with the stunning natural setting, then a feast on grazing platters and cake to finish.
A joint birthday party catering for kids of a 4 year age gap, this was a great theme with all the colour and magic and madness of a Wonderland teaparty simply executed.
Another party that I designed the party paperware for. Hand drawn illustrations and simple classical colours then styled by the client.
