Nicole and Lazaros were thrilled that their one-year-old son, Sam’s birthday had come along and couldn’t wait to celebrate. They thought it would be as good a time as any to baptise him too, so they combined the two celebrations. They wanted both occasions to be memorable, so they enlisted the help of The Style Co. to make it all a reality.

The whimsical and playful styling was inspired by the Dr. Seuss story Oh, The Places You’ll Go!. The colour palette consisted of a variety of pastels, yellows and blues to go with the storybook and the rest of the décor.

Nicole and Lazaros requested no gifts but instead asked their guests to donate to Mercy Ships, an amazing group that works to provide life-saving medical assistance to regions without the infrastructure to do so. Without gifts, family and friends raised more than $12,000 for Mercy Ships.RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_04 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_07 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_11 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_30 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_37 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_42 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_33 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_31 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_28 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_27 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_24 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_21 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_20 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_19 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_14 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_06 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_09 RC_Birthdays_Sams1stBirthday_02
