From Victoria: Cat from Modest Peach absolutely nailed this build-out and my vision. We used the recycle cart as a dessert stand to showcase all the incredibly beautiful desserts and cake made by Dien of Sweet Deetails.
Dien also designed the graphic of Lennon as a Waste Recycle Worker. We also customized each child at the party with their own graphic design of themselves as a Waste Recycle Worker.
Malisa from Creative Amme created place cards of each child for their table settings. I also got customized trash can utensil holders with each child’s name made and perfectly suited stir sticks of a recycle truck and the phrase “Let’s Change The World.”
Party Shop Ave did an amazing balloon install to resemble trashing coming out of cans and the truck and Shana from Sharp Balloons made Lennon’s little garbage truck balloon that he would not let go of.
As always Brie from Pavan Floral stunned with her gorgeous floral arrangements. We also had bumper cars for the kids which were a massive hit provided by Busy Bee Soft Play rentals.
The highlight of all was the Waste Management team arriving. I have never seen a happier Lennon. They let him go into the truck and blow the horn. They brought him a present. It was truly special. Hopefully, these kids understood the importance of recycling and striving to save this planet. Photos by the incredible Kara Coleen, who never fails to capture every event so beautifully.
