This fantastic “LONDON CALLING” + BRITISH THEMED BIRTHDAY BASH was submitted by Heather Dalton of Chickabug.

What a spectacular party. I love how the main table looks so etiquette; it has such a proper British feel. There are so many darling ideas that would be perfect for a London themed birthday party or even a tea party.

My favorite London Calling/British party ideas and elements from this wonderful birthday bash are:

  • The cute British flag fruit cake
  • The adorable mini pancakes with a blueberry on top
  • The British photo op
  • The red and white striped backdrop with a simple canvas crown
  • The cute British cupcake picks
  • The cute telephone booths
  • and MORE!

London Calling/British Birthday Party Details:

This is what Heather said about the party- “For her son August’s 2nd birthday, my talented friend Courtney of Courtney Adams Design knew just what theme she wanted for his party – ‘London Calling!’ I designed the stationery and party printables to fit the theme, using British flags, crowns, double-decker buses, mustached guards, and lots of fun British sayings. Courtney did a gorgeous job styling the party, from the London Underground-inspired front door sign to the Union Jack fruit pizza to the homemade telephone booth photo prop. After a delicious brunch, the kids loved playing outside and making jeweled king and queen crowns to wear.”

DIY PROJECTS:

Crown backdrop on canvas – Courtney found the crown image online, projected it onto a Hobby Lobby canvas, and used a Sharpie to fill it in.

Telephone booth – Courtney says, “My dad and I made it from MDF, red spray paint and black letters. It took a minute but we really needed it to drive home the theme!”

Door wreath – Made using a foam wreath, red grosgrain ribbon, white foam core, blue paint, white letter stickers (for August’s name and age), and hot glue. Courtney wrapped the wreath with ribbon, then filled in the center with white foam core. She also used white foam core to make the rectangle for the sign. She painted the sign blue, applied the white letter stickers, then glued the whole wreath together. Voila!

Photo board – To make the photo board, Courtney covered a large piece of white foam core with blue gingham fabric, tacked extra-wide red ribbons in place, then framed it in a large silver frame”.

RECIPES:

Union Jack Fruit Pizza

Pimm’s Punch
