For this styled shoot we took our inspiration from cake. Lots of cake. All the cake (and then a little bit more cake)!
Party planning can be a challenge, but once we developed the concept we had an absolute blast coming up with extravagant details for a Marie Antoinette inspired teenage party. Mixing opulent old world Parisian charm together with a whole lot of modern lighthearted whimsy, our party was uber indulgent and a little over the top! Invitations covered with playful imagery of sweets & treats beautifully packaged in a gold-gilded envelope gave the guests a subtle hint of the quintessential decadence they were about to experience at the royal château. Imagine big hair, lots of ornamentation, exuberant décor, rich colours like golds, pinks, blue, lilac, mint green and cream. The space was transformed using layers of pastel tissue tassels, bold balloon garlands that covered the walls & ceiling and most importantly a "Queen's Table” embellished with white sequins topped with sumptuous desserts and enchanting florals. Strawberry towers finished with lush blooms, dreamy cotton candy bowls, lavish macarons filled with delicate ganache then hand painted with edible gold, plus seemly endless tiers of delicious indulgences.
Adorned wigs with fantastic edifices of hair and elegant gowns captured the “joie de vivre" of that party loving teenage queen whose spirit seemed to embrace these young ladies as they became the embodiment of glamorous femininity while sharing lots of laughter at this French-themed soirée. It was truly a magical event with a fairy-tale feel that became the perfect backdrop for our let them eat BIRTHDAY cake celebration!
