Here’s a party on a most marvellous scale that will absolutely, positively take your breath away. It’s a doll house birthday and it’s one of the prettiest, girliest and most intricate parties we’ve seen so far, with a level of detail that’s nothing short of astounding.
Mum Louisa put the party together to celebrate her eldest daughter’s seventh birthday, and drew inspiration from India-Sophia’s favourite toy – a pretty yellow dollhouse she received as a welcome-to-the-world present when just a newborn bub.
Of course, it’s no real surprise that this party is such a delight. Louisa is an events stylist and the mastermind behind what may well be the most amazing online party store in the whole wide world, Melbourne’s very own The Little Big Company. She’s certainly put all her know-how and creativity to work here.
Now come take a closer look. It’s hard to know what to show you first – the adorable tablecloths made to mimic a dollhouse by Sweet Bonnie Belle, the handmade rosettes and ribbons from Little Pipika atop the lolly jars (much of the dazzling glassware from The Little Big Company, of course) or the row of real doll houses used to such dramatic effect – so we’ll just let the photos keep on speaking for themselves.
It’s details, details, everywhere you look, from the pretty retro inspired party paperie by Loralee Lewis, the tiny doll house furniture used as makeshift mini cake stands, the colour-matched lollies found at The Professors Online Lolly Shop and the achingly adorable vintage-style handmade dolls from Sweet Bonnie Belle that each lucky guest took home.
And the cake, the cake, oh what a cake! Just Call Me Martha certainly deserves her moniker for crafting such a masterpiece of a cake, right down to the fondant roof tiles and the teeny-tiny flowers in the teeny-tiny window boxes. There it is below, right behind the darling doll-faced belle of the ball herself, India-Sophia.
We’re also digging the doll pops, another Just Call Me Martha creation, and the daisy cookies made by Spoon and Fork Cookies and Cakes. And what of these too-sweet-to-eat vintage dolls cookies, also by Spoon and Fork? I think I may very well die from the cuteness overload!
How beautiful too are the tables set out for the small guests to sup at, with dainty party hats from Prop Shop Boutique, pom pom wands from Pom Pom Princess and pretty Sambellina tableware. How I wish I could have been seven again, just for the day, so I could have been one of the guests!
Louisa, you certainly set the bar high when it comes to parties. I’m sure I’m not the only mum sighing in absolute awe over this one and hoping my own daughter doesn’t catch a glimpse over my shoulder and plead for a party just like it!
