Our client Kristelle wanted an Australian themed Summer Christmas Party and what could be more Aussie than beautiful white sand beaches and a laid back surf culture. So we brought the white sand, blue waves, and the cool Aussie beach vibe to the WSC End of Year celebrations. The colours of the Australian flag, Red and blue, were the colour theme so we mixed it in the styling with a Nautical twist.
We used elements of the Aussie beaches, mixed with coastal and nautical themes to style the dessert table: frangipani flowers, sea shells, knots and ropes, life buoy, nautical lanterns, and beach balls! We carried the theme across the guests tables with our surf inspired table centre pieces featuring a beach “diorama” in glass bowls, hand painted wooden surfboards and beach chairs tea light holders laid out on burlap table runners.
The colourful surfboard and frangipani cookies added so much fun to the table and the yummy cupcakes with sea shell, surfboard and havaianas thongs fondant toppers were just the perfect beach desserts. The soft wave-like peaks on the sea blue buttercream frosting and the sandy crumbs really brought the beach theme to life – great attention to detail by Chef A’s Weekend Kitchen.
We reckon we’ve put together the perfect Australian theme Summer Party for WSC’s Christmas celebrations held at the Penrith Panthers. The venue may be miles away from the nearest beach but we’ve definitely brought the beach to the party for the guests to enjoy.
