Welcome to the first post in a new exciting series of How-To party articles that will show you how to turn your ordinary kids party into a high-end designer event. We’ll be covering five major fashion labels in this series and how to throw the most glamorous and elegant designer themed birthday parties you’ve ever seen. This is definitely for those extra parents who want to splurge on a great party, not just for their children, but for the adults as well – because why shouldn’t the ‘rents also have a little fun?
Our first instalment is none other than renowned French design house, Yves Saint Laurent, also known as Saint Laurent. This fashion house was founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé in 1962 – and they’re still going strong. So, without further ado, here’s How To Throw An Yves Saint Laurent Party:
1) Hire Khristianne Uy
Nobody should have to cook their own food for a glamorous designer party. Khristianne Uy, also known as Chef K, has spent years cooking for the Kardashians, as well Charlize Theron, James Cameron and Ryan Seacrest. That means she knows about fussy – and she can cook up delicious cookies too. Not sure if your budget is quite ready for the star-studded Chef K but you still want a pro? Food Fire + Knives allows you to book the best private chefs in your area.
2) Invite Models
Did you know that you can hire models to come to your party? This curious service is known as ‘ambiance modelling’ and the statuesque beauties create an atmosphere of sophistication. You can also hire models to be waiters at your party, serving an elegant adult table or bringing cupcakes and milkshakes to the children. Check these out: Book Models and Runway Waiters.
3) Yves Saint Laurent Kids Fun Stations
Just because it’s a designer party, does not mean that the children have to be prim and proper. You can still let the children run free in their designer wear and enjoy activities like slime making, tie-dye and a cookie and YSL cupcake decorating station. Your private chef is sure to be able to whip up delicious treats for these. Yombu also has professional kids party entertainers that are thoroughly comfortable with any theme and venue, coming to your event to keep the children busy – it’s super easy to book them and everything can be managed online.
4) YSL Cupcakes
Here are some of our favorite bits and bobs to make the ultimate YSL cupcakes:
5) The White Jumping Castle
Look, y’all, we love the modern white jumping castle. It’s just so beautiful, works with any color scheme and provides hours of fun for the kids. San Diego Bounce Events is our favorite – plus they have gorgeous backdrops to boot. Balloon Stories can drape their inflatable art creations across the bounce house for a glam look.
6) Handkerchief Party Favors
What better party favors than stylish handkerchiefs from the great man himself? You can find a variety of style of designer bandana on Etsy. Other great ideas include polaroids snapped by an authentic instant camera – shop for them here and let the children pose with the models!
