Our One Magic Day photo shoot was held at the most impressive location, top floor at Creative Behaviours Studio in Footscray, Melbourne. Together with the incredible duo, Clare and Simone from The Little Me Collaborative we had the best time ever! Three flights of stairs lead us to the top floor studio, bumping-in and bumping-out all those props, equipment and party ware, it was good, clean, fun! What an absolute joy it was working with the most adorable little models, 4 boys and 3 girls ranging in ages of between 1-6. Of course, anything could happen (well there was that one 'cheeky' balloon - more on that in a later post) but honestly, all I can say is there was serious magic happening on that day and the result... beyond my wildest expectations!
For 1:20 seconds why not kick back, relax and enjoy all the fun that goes on behind-the-scenes with this sneaky peek video production by the lovely and talented Gerlee from Adventures in Genre.
Pretty amazing hey? See below the result from all the fun and games...

Let's get this party started! 0
Hello everybody, I'm Nicole. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my husband Brett, our 6 year old daughter Matisse and our fur son, Hudson the spoodle :)
Welcome to One Magic Day. A fun and inspiring hub of activity where we believe every single day should be a celebration. We're all about parties, especially children's birthdays and I'm EXTREMELY excited to announce the launch of our online party shop! Phew! It's been a long time coming but here we are, were finally here! That's a party in itself, believe me, to see all this brought to life.. hip hip hooray, I say!!!!
Now we've only just met, so I'd prefer to be honest from the get go. The party actually started about 5 years ago, after I moved on from my career as an event sales manager and became a new Mum. My love of organising and planning never really escaped me while nursing baby Tisse and I craved a creative outlet. I had so many ideas popping out of my head during those early days of maternity leave, thats when my 'hobby' of designing childrens birthday invitations began.
Matisse's 1st birthday was the beginning of the end for me. I loved designing those invites and then styling that party, so many hours spent on DIY projects (pushing that pram up and down the aisles at Bunnings, the staff and I were on first name basis) the nights were becoming an online shopping marathon searching for the paper cups, straws, napkins.. It felt like I was designing a theme park than a kids birthday party.. but I couldn't help myself. The rewards came soon after though when images and reviews of a few parties I styled were featured on a number of well know party blogs. Requests to style my friends and families' special days were pouring in and then the enquiries came from the wider community. I thought, maybe, just maybe I had something more to offer, maybe I can help other busy parents, just like me!
So, I opened up an Etsy shop and sold my printable party designs where people from around the globe purchased my personalised party stationery and co-ordinating decorations. Instead of me being the stylist, they were styling the party themselves (SIY) using One Magic Day printables. What a thrill inspiring other parents with their 'magic days'.
Fast forward to 2016 and here we are. We still love to celebrate "everything" especially children's birthday parties but now we're an online shop filled with so many adorable party supplies. I still love planning, styling and then seeing my ideas come to life, that's why I'm so passionate and selective about our growing range of high quality birthday party essentials. It's easy for you to choose from our best selling party themes and co-ordinating accessories. Our cleverly curated party kits have you covered, from the invitations to paper plates all the way to the thank you tags and everything in-between. If you need a little help planning your party, I also offer consultations over the phone. The happiness is then packaged up and delivered right to your door, ready for you to create instant cheer at your next party!
