Styling tips

Tania’s Design Studio shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Order your party printable package early, and print and assemble sooner rather than later.  There is nothing worse than not allowing yourself enough time to pull together your many ideas!  Give yourself time to enjoy the process of planning and celebrating the day.

Tip 2

Know when to try making something yourself and when to hire professional vendors.  Personally, I love baking my own cakes, but Spring Break is particularly busy and for this race party I opted to have a lovely baker make the cake.  Putting your effort into one or two homemade sweets is much better than trying to do it all.  Find vendors you like to work with and enjoy the process!

Tip 3

Once you set the theme, think of ways to incorporate sweets that work with your design.  For instance, I placed Oreo ‘spare tires’ on the party table.
