Unicorn Fiesta | Oh Feri

Styling an insta-worthy birthday party by yourself isn't always easy! That is why we are thrilled to char to party-styling-superstar Feri from @ohferi_eventstyling If you are interested in having Feri style one of your events get in touch via her Facebook page

Tell us about how you began Oh Feri Event Styling I've always enjoyed being super creative and organising parties for my family and friends. My niece and nephew think I am one awesome aunty for throwing the coolest parties for them! ha It wasn't until I did some research into the events industry within Australia and realised that party styling was actually a very real business opportunity for me to pursue. I decided to jump right in and haven't looked back since.

What was your brief for the Unicorn party and how did you bring it to life? When it comes to Unicorn parties the brief is ALWAYS fun, girly and lots of pink! With any party I style, I think attention to detail is super important so it's worth spending extra time planning the little things that will really add a WOW factor to your setup. Pinterest also tends to be a great source of inspiration. My suppliers are all world class in what they do and this party would not have come to life without a massive group effort.

What are the benefits of using an event stylist for children's birthday parties? I definitely think the biggest benefit in hiring a stylist is that it makes the party process virtually stress free. Personally speaking, I organise everything for my clients so all they really have to do is arrive at their event and have an amazing time. Super easy!

The birthday girl turned four years old! What are important things to keep in mind when planning parties for toddlers? Themes, themes, themes! Definitely make sure the chosen theme is appropriate for kids. It's also important to arrange kid-friendly activities so the little ones are kept busy.

What decoration item do you think makes the biggest impact for party stylings and why? I think a themed backdrop is super important for dessert tables as it adds colour and frames the dessert table nicely. I am a little biased but I LOVE florals so where possible I include fresh floral arrangements. Balloons are also a winner for kids parties whether that be a balloon garland or jumbo balloons with tassels. Always a winner with kids!

It looks like unicorn parties have been super popular this Winter! What themes do you predict will be huge for Summer? Believe it or not, I think the unicorn trend is here to stay for some time still. I think you will also see more flamingo and tropical inspired parties and of course a summer favourite which are pool parties.
