As Australia faced a devastating 2019-20 bushfire season, Skye from Memorable Parties went on a mission to recruit generous suppliers from across Australia to pool talents and resources to raise funds for WIRES Wildlife Rescue by hosting a ticketed Frozen II inspired high tea fundraiser, with 100% of proceeds donated to WIRES. The event had an Autumnal colour palette, featuring splashes of ‘Elsa blue’. Skye tells us about the day below.

Upon entering the hall, guest’s eyes lit up as they spotted Olaf and Nokk ice sculptures, together with a crowd favourite giant Sven prop. The children’s tables were covered in beautiful fabrics and decorated in glitter trees and autumn leaves, suggestive of the enchanted forest featured heavily in Frozen II.

The children were kept entertained with a ball pit and toys, whilst waiting to be bedazzled with face sparkles and glitter tattoos, including a fitting koala tattoo.

Grazing boards were a healthy start to afternoon tea before children enjoyed exquisitely decorated cookies, magnum cake pops, donuts, and cupcakes finished with hand moulded and painted chocolate autumn leaves. Parents enjoyed cheesecake dessert pots complete with Bruni chocolate flames.

Astrid of Paper Playground designed a suite of custom paperie for the event, including wraps for the take-home gift boxes. Gift boxes were filled with Olaf chocolate pops, custom lollipops, vanilla-scented Frozen playdough, and fairy floss baubles which were personalised as place cards.

The energy in the room was wonderful, the kids had an amazing time, parents were so appreciative of everything included, and it was all for a wonderful cause.

I was blown away by the support offered by all the suppliers, who I now consider industry friends. They embraced my detailed requests and used it as an opportunity to showcase their talents whilst doing their bit to help. The smiles on children’s faces made all the work worthwhile, and I had the utmost pride transferring just shy of $1,200 raised to WIRES.
