Surprise Baby Shower

Blue and pink was the colour theme for this surprise baby shower for mother-to-be, Karla. Karla’s beautiful Mum and Aunt wanted to create a special surprise afternoon tea for Karla’s baby shower. The one criteria was to fill the room with balloons to create a great impact when their guests walked in, and so we did! We filled the living room with hundreds of pink and blue balloons as well as balloon columns and arches.welcome sign baby shower

We dressed the tables with crisp white linen. It really helped to make it feel like a special event and was perfect for the high tea theme.

Little Red Riding Hood 1st Birthday Party Theme

Our beautiful client Ruby celebrated her 1st birthday party with a bang on the weekend. We wanted to create something a bit different so we went with Little Red Riding Hood Theme. The wood sign was pointing to grandma’s cottage and the big bad wolf was lurking around the corner. We had some fun setting up this one and we think our little red riding hood was very happy!

A little help from your Wedding Planner…

goes a long way when you have some hick-ups during the wedding planning process.

Bride and Groom having fun on their wedding day as they are relaxed knowing their wedding planner is taking care of EVERYTHING!

Bride and Groom having fun on their wedding day, knowing their wedding planner is taking care of EVERYTHING!

Felicity and Gerard were delighted to hear that we could be their wedding planner here in Melbourne. Living and working in Warrnambool, some 3 hours away from Melbourne, the destination of their wedding. It gave them piece of mind knowing they’d have someone on the ground in Melbourne to assist with their wedding planning.  They had realized early on, that all their family and friends were attending their wedding as guests, so they needed someone else to help out on their wedding day. My Perfect Event was the perfect solution.reserve sign at ceremonyThe bride and groom, Felicity and Gerard had an idea of what they wanted for their wedding day. They had already booked the delightful Chapter House for their ceremony and Comme for their reception. We were able to help them work through their brief and ideas for wedding invitations. Our preferred creative bespoke studio for helping us with wedding invitations is My Artisan Studio. They interpreted the wedding invitation brief perfectly. We helped Felicity and Gerard find an illustrator who created a fun drawing of the soon to be bride and groom. This illustration was then incorporated into their wedding invitations and wedding signage.chapter house melbourne

Part way through the planning of their wedding, Felicity and Gerard learned that the Comme had undergone a name change, a new chef, and you guessed it, a new menu! To say that this added a little bit of stress to their wedding planning process was an understatement. Working collaboratively with the wedding invitation designer, My Perfect Event was able to get the reception venue name change incorporated into the wedding invitations just prior to them being sent to print – disaster was adverted! Now that is why you need a wedding planner!

chapter houseDuring the wedding planning process, sometimes Felicity and Gerard just needed to ask an independent opinion or test an idea on someone. That’s where My Perfect Event was able to act as a sounding board and keep them on track with their idea of their perfect event.My Perfect Event was also able to help the bride and groom locate and hire mini milk bottles that they used as vases on the tables at the wedding reception. We also found the perfect frame and easel for their signage at the ceremony. We’d planned and coordinated every detail of the strategic side of their wedding. It’s easy for a bride and groom to get caught up in the big picture of how their wedding day will look. It’s My Perfect Event’s role to make it happen. For example we physically took the flowers from the ceremony and placed them in exactly the right place at the reception.

I think the biggest relief for the bride and groom was knowing that My Perfect Event had every minute detail covered on their Melbourne wedding day. We helped Felicity and Gerard collate all their wedding details into a running sheet and then distributed it to everyone who was involved in their wedding day planning. We even had a bottle of water for the groom and a breath mint for the bride! Now that’s a perfect wedding!

Yellow Baby Shower

A Baby shower is a time to spoil the mother-to-be. It’s a time to celebrate life and family, and in fact, these days it’s not uncommon to have a styled  baby shower, especially if the parents-to-be have a large family or several close friends. The planning of a baby shower can be an enormous job as it involves a lot of planning.Sometimes the hardest job is to come up with a theme and execute it well. The theme for the baby shower serves as inspiration for decorations and games, invitations, favours and even the food. – See more at:

The theme for this Melbourne baby shower was an elegant high tea afternoon brunch. The color scheme was yellow, gray and white. It was the perfect way to style for a gender neutral baby shower, whilst adding a splash of color to the room by using yellow.

The baby shower styling was based on a typical high tea event. There were fine china teacups and saucers complete with a silver teapot. Delicious cupcakes, sponge cakes filled with cream and strawberries, not to mention the macaroons and yellow jelly slice filled the dining table.

The color scheme was incorporated on the mini milk bottles with yellow and white straws and tri colored labels on the milk bottles. The client’s existing yellow and orange floral canvas created a colorful and dynamic backdrop for the baby shower drinks station.

A mini lolly buffet was also setup for guests to help themselves during the afternoon. Yellow and white-stripped lolly bags were pre-filled for the guests to take home. The grand mothers enjoyed the lolly buffet just as much as the younger kids.

Both tulle and paper poms hung from the ceiling and also outdoors. This helped lead the guests from outdoors into the lounge and dining rooms where the baby shower was being held. The eye-catching feature of the baby shower styling was large, free standing, gold painted BABY letters. When the guests were at the dining table, the BABY letters were just outside the window, creating a fun backdrop.

The mother-to-be didn’t want typical baby shower games. So we organized for the guests to write up some keep-sake cards. One card asked the guests to write a wish for the new baby. Another card allowed the guests to guess when the baby would be born and if it would be a baby boy or a baby girl. The cards were great fun and when completed, they were pinned up on the wall and became a part of the theme and styling for the baby shower. The mother-to-be now has a collection of wonderful wishes to include in the baby’s album for years’ to come.

Exciting News!

We have some exciting news! Weddings by MaxiMy has recently merged our business with My Artisan Studio creating a new identity, My Perfect Event. We offer wedding day coordination, event styling and event decor items for hire.


Melina is an accredited expert professional organizer with the Australasian Association of Professional Organizers (AAPO). Melissa is a qualified commercial photographer. So between us we’ve got organizing, planning and creative ideas to make every event perfect. We can do as much or as little of your event planning as you would like us to.

An invaluable service that we provide is On-the-Day Wedding Coordination. As all your family and friends will be attending your wedding as guests, who will help you move the flowers from the church to the reception?

We will make sure everything runs to time and to plan on your special day. We will take care of any problems that may arise so you can relax and enjoy every moment of your magical day.

Most recently My Perfect Event did the wedding day coordination for a couple that got married at Chapter House in Melbourne. The couple were from out of town, so it made sense for them to get someone local to help them out on their wedding day. We arrived early to make sure the venue had been setup exactly as the bride and groom wanted. We delivered the ceremony booklets to the chapel and made sure the ushers were in place to greet the guests. We also ferried the flowers from the chapel to the reception at The Stoke House and checked the tables matched with the seating plan. We took care of all the details on the day so our beautiful couple could enjoy their celebration.

wedding plannerWe have done some fun events as well. We created giant, free-standing BABY letters for a gender neutral baby shower. We’ve used vinyl records as place mats for a fun 40th birthday party together with vertical styled name place ‘cylinders’ (instead of the standard name cards). We’ve been called in at the last minute to help a couple move their wedding from one venue to another, all 48 hours before the wedding! We’ve even organized a silver brief case with appropriate party remedies for a James Bond themed birthday. No matter what the occasion, everyone deserves the perfect event. So if you have a wedding or a special event coming up, why not click here to contact us and see how we can make your event, the PERFECT event!
