Vintage Inspired Sweet Sixteen Party

I am very excited to finally share with you Paris’ 16th birthday party which I styled a few weeks ago. HUGE thanks go to Leanne Stamatellos, our wonderful photographer who embraced my idea of a Fashion Shoot Party wholeheartedly. She worked with the girls beautifully and made them feel so at ease.

The vintage theme was so much fun to organise. I couldn’t have been happier with the end result! Thank you Leanne for photographing all the lovely details too.

♥Vintage themed piñata

The girls arrived at 3pm looking absolutely gorgeous, laden with extra outfits, accessories and shoes.

Leanne then photographed each girl in a private mini fashion shoot, while the other girls chatted (as only teenage girls can do) and typed a Birthday Message on the vintage typewriter.

The typewriter was a big hit!

♥Her friends

Don’t they all look gorgeous? I think the images above could be straight from a fashion magazine.

I overheard someone saying “I think my cheeks are hurt from smiling!” The perils of being a model!

♥The Photo Booth

The photo booth was probably the highlight for the girls. They had an absolute ball grabbing different props and being super silly!

I love the group shots in the street below. Leanne came up with many fabulous ideas. It was fun to watch.

I knew that the girls were going to love the photo shoot and have a lot of fun but I could not have ever anticipated just how much of a success it was going to be. It was the perfect choice for these sweet sixteens!

♥Mocktail Bar

When the photo shoot came to an end it was time for Mocktails and a Three-course Dinner Party.  Remember modeling is really hard work!

Do you like the raspberry and blueberry swizzle sticks I made below?

Paris’ one request for her party was that she wanted a dinner party with her friends.  David and I played chef and waiter. It was such a wonderful evening filled with the chatter and laughter of 12 teenage girls.  Oh Sweet Sixteen!

Over the next few weeks I thought I would share some of the nitty gritty of where I sourced bits and pieces and also some DIY’s plus recipes. The Prosciutto-wrapped Chicken is a recipe I just have to share
