After my beach themed inspiration board last week, today I bring you a British seaside themed party! Totally coincidental but nicely topical and a bit bloomin’ lovely too! The party was created by Evelyne Desilets for her 2 boys, Elliott and Jonas, with decorations she picked up from Ebay and Not On The High Street, and here she tells us how it all came together.
Elliott & Jonas have their birthdays only 10 days apart so we decided to celebrate both of them at the same time. Jonas was turning one so it was quite a special birthday and wanted to make it a very special occasion. We invited all our friends, family, Elliott’s school friends, neighbours… We ended up with more people than were at our own wedding! I wanted a classic British seaside theme to the party and I asked the fabulous Mrs.Bou from The Boutique Baking Company to make the cake and sweets display which was the main focus of the party.
I could imagine the kids playing on the swings, trampoline, bouncy castle… But, all week, as typical British weather can get, it was expected to rain… heavily. I just couldn’t imagine all these people in our pretty modest 3 bedroom house, it was very stressful. Luckily however, the sun came out just in time and we managed to get everyone to play in the garden :) Happy days!
We also had the very talented Emma Case to photograph our party. Trying to be a host and take pictures at the same time is almost impossible and I just didn’t want to miss anything. She is so good with the kids and she did an amazing job :) It was a great day and everyone really enjoyed themselves!

How cute is the beach hut cake?! The sweet table is amazing and I absolutely love the fish and chips in newspaper! The overall look and feel of this party is so lovely and fresh. Thank you very much to Evelyne for sharing this gorgeous party with us.
