Zoe’s Batgirl and Bandits Party was a 5th birthday to remember. It was held at the family’s local hall, which fortunately had beautiful hardwood floors, white walls and loads of natural light – the perfect base to work with.

Zoe’s mother Thetis, owner of Sooti Event Styling + Design, went for a minimalist feel with a simple hero design and pops of colour. ‘This year I asked Zoe what theme she wanted and she chose “Batgirl & Bandits”. She is not much of a girly girl so the theme fitted her personality perfectly,’ she said.

Thetis said that the invitations and stationery, designed by her good friends at Ham & Pea, worked as her base for the decorations. Everything was kept very minimal, with a giant number 5-foil balloon, honeycomb balls scattered around the floor and tables, and large stars placed on the wall.

She also kept the kid’s table very simple, giving each child a lunch box, a cup of juice with a stripy straw and a handmade bandit mask. On the dessert table were pink gum balls, cookies and cupcakes, and behind it was an amazing backdrop which Zoe now has hanging in her bedroom.

Zoe’s Batgirl and Bandits Party is the perfect example of how to throw a stress-free and simple children’s birthday party. Being a stylist, Thetis ensured that nothing was too complicated or OTT. ‘My personal style is quite minimalist and Scandinavian design inspired, so I love that I can incorporate that clean, streamlined look into my kid’s parties,’ Thetis said.
