Olivia's World Tour 2012

WARNING! This is going to be a long post with loads of images.

Olivia recently celebrated her 8th birthday in rockstar style.  Our gorgeous girl (who we call Presh) is so into her music (in particular One Direction), it was no surprise she requested a rockstar party.  If you've been following my blog for the past four years you would know that I love my children's parties to tell a story and the theme to be carried through from the invitation to final goodbyes.  There are alot of images here but I want you to see how the party progressed and get a sense of what it was like to be at Olivia's World Tour 2012.

I sincerely hope you enjoy looking through these images captured by Leanne Stamatellos Photography.

  2. That was spectacular! I wish I could pin some of those great ideas, though. I'm afraid I'll forget where I found them!

  3. What a fun party! I am so excited to start planning birthday parties for our little girl. Is it bad I am already thinking ideas for her first birthday and she isn't even born yet??

  5. Wow - fantastic. Looks like they had a blast and as ever the details are sublime. I would have loved the party too, especially if they were playing a lot of One Direction! My she has grown up since last year's Mary Poppins party. Bless her, she's such a spunk too.
