Kyly and Michael Clarke threw daughter Kelsey-Lee an epic christening party.

Kyly Clarke clearly knows how to throw a party.

On Sunday, Clarke and husband Michael celebrated their daughter Kelsey-Lee‘s baptism with a bash that makes your party Pinterest board look amateur.

Sticking to a strict pink, white and rose gold palette, the party for the almost-one year old featured a Kardashian-inspired flower wall, decorative bouquets, cupcakes, giant balloons, scented candles and a three-tier cake.

Yes, it’s probably nicer than your wedding.


The perfect day! Great people, stunning set up. @kylyclarke @caking_it_up @sweeteventstylingbythanhtran @leanne.quinn @cqphotography

After coming up with the concept, Clarke enlisted the help of a team of events and styling wizards to bring it all to life. It looks epic.

I had the absolute pleasure creating and styling @kylyclarke & @michaelclarkeofficial daughter Kelsey Lee’s baptism yesterday. Kyly had lots of ideas of how she wanted the dessert table to come together – Kyly is very creative I must say – utilising the beautiful stunning floral backdrop by @elegant_tea_time and the stunning centrepiece cake by Karen of @caking_it_up. Keeping with the simple, yet elegant, Kyly had picked the colour palette of pastel pink, dusty pink, ivory and white with traces of gold which was used throughout the styling and fresh floral arrangements. Thank you so much to Kyly and Michael for choosing us to be part of your little princess’s special day!

And would you look at that cake? Want. (Yes, we’re jealous of an eleven month old.)

This gorgeous stunner was created to celebrate Kelsey Lee’s very special christening day. Love, love, love the way this cake turned out and features some beautiful elements. The opulent gold leaf, tones of pink and some soft fresh blooms all work together so perfectly and just oooooze prettiness. I love the geometric design used on the bottom tier as a contrast to the soft background. This design is one of the many signature stencil designs to come soon so keep your eyes peeled. I cannot wait to share the whole setup of this event. I looked absolutely stunning! Thank you to @kylyclarke and @michaelclarkeofficial allowing me to be a part of your precious little Kelsey Lee’s special day. I hope it was an amazing day :-) x #sydneycakedecorator #sydneycakes #cake #baptism #christening #religiouscake #goldleaf #cakingitupstencildesigns #pink #freshflowers #handpainted #cakingitup #threetiercake #cakestencil #watercolour

Kelsey Lee’s favourite scented candles from her mum’s lifestyle brand, Lyfstyled, were also used to complete the display.

In case you’re wondering – she’s a Parisian Musk and Amber fan while dad Michael is more of a Vanilla and Coconut kind of man.

While some people consider party planning and hosting a total nightmare, Clarke says it’s something she loves doing.

“We all know I love designing and this is one of my favourite hobbies,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Decorating, making people feel special and seeing everyone smile with joy when they get to eat all the yummy treats!”

We can’t wait for the first birthday party.
