This week’s real party is brought to us from Felicity at Little Paper Plate Events. We’re so excited to share Stella’s Koala party with you – we’re sure that you’ll agree that it is the sweetest party ever seen! Here’s what Felicity had to say about her event.
Hello! My name is Felicity and I love creating handmade unique parties for my three daughters Lauren, Annabel and Stella in Sydney, Australia. I like to create party themes with characters that are little outside the box for my girls. I source, buy, make, style and photograph everything myself so you could say its almost a hobby gone wild. After much encouragement from my friends and family, I created ‘Little Paper Plate Events’ to give back and share my creativity with the world wide web! Big love and enjoy!

I also chose the theme (with Stella’s approval of course) as Stella is always attached on my back for constant cuddles! For the design I again reached out to my Gabriela from Nina Designs and Parties. In her usual awesomeness, Gabriela created this sweet little koala printable set based on a crochet koala toy I purchased from a local children’s toy store. I especially loved the thank you tags, colouring page and the pass the parcel leaf to keep the little ones occupied!
The dessert table was set against a backdrop of a cute koala face and mint coloured gum leaves.
On the dessert table I wanted to keep the display simple with accent use of grey. I placed the cute crochet toy, small plain grey cups and grey and white striped paper straws.
I also added I cute koala bunting (designed by Gabriela) which helped with the table symmetry. Again it would not be a party without my fun and popular fondant cookies. I think they turned out well!?
I also reached out to my reliable cake dealer Rebecca from SweetCrush for her amazing sweet buttercream treats.
I served Lamingtions and Iced Vovos to add to the Australian vibes (both classic Australian treats) and made sure I had the coffee brewing for the adults!
