If you haven’t noticed we’re pretty excited about the upcoming holiday. We’ve shared our favorite Easter basket gifts for the little ones and now this adorable and colorful kids Easter playdate! Beijos Events made sure this awesome set up was perfect for children; fun, playful, and sweet! Jacquelyn designed it with care & loads of creativity – here’s what she has to say about the inspiring celebration!
This kid’s Easter playdate was inspired by fun and bright colors! I wanted to steer away from the usual pastels and go eclectic and playful! I was really inspired by the weavings and creations of Julie Howard, owner of Shop Leo Kids. We used her pom poms and weavings throughout the shoot, and the color palette really formed after drooling over her beautiful creations. Most of the items I used were from Pottery Barn Kids, which really anchored the entire shoot. I loved using their industrial style chairs to set off the whimsical look a bit. They also carry such great pieces for Easter! I had so much fun choosing the baskets and table top pieces! Lastly, I threw in a few pieces from one of my favorite websites, The Little Market. Their napkins, coasters and baskets complimented the rest of the table so well.
Another stand out has to be the gorgeous florals from MV Florals. Her and I talked about using poppies- we both love them and they are such a quintessential Spring flower. An invite and signage are always necessary for a party and Leanna Retterath really took my vision and ran with it. I love the mustard yellow floral invite she created and really love all of the hand painted eggs with each kid’s name on them as place cards. The kids had so much fun finding their names and showing them off. Another thing they absolutely LOVED were all of the desserts! I sent Natalie from Great Dane Baking Co. a few ideas and she created such amazing cupcakes, macarons and cookies all anchored by the prettiest little naked cake. Let’s just put it this way, nothing got left behind on this shoot!
Lastly, I was looking for some cute clothing for the kids. It’s hard to to take out the cheese factor when your shopping for your little ones over the holidays, any holiday really. The girls wore the CUTEST dresses from Sadie Then Ty and I can’t stop getting compliments on them!! The prints, the cut, the fabric, everything was just dreamy. We accessorized each girl with some JL Designs bunny ears (the cutest things ever!!) and some jewelry from Henny and Coco. The boys wore some neutral button ups and pants but had the ultimate bow tie accessory by Stag Handmade. They looked so handsome with them on and the floral print was perfect for Spring!!
