The sandwiches wrapped in brown kraft paper and identified with sticker labels
The mini pennant banner cake topper
The coordinating water bottle labels
The beautiful floral headbands worn by many of the girls
The 2-tier pie tin cake stand used to hold fruit
The bohemian military style jacket adorned with patches
Here’s what Mandy and Chris said about the event- “We have been dying to plan a Bohemian themed party to show off one of the unique clothing lines we are so excited to offer at Koko Blush! We were honored that the very talented event paper designer, Loralee Lewis & her team, came to Utah to work on this project with us. We are so thankful Loralee supported our Boho vision and created the perfect printable collection. It was too much fun working on the details of this shoot! Special thanks to Lookie Loo Photography for capturing these beautiful moments and all the mothers & models for being such stars! Huge thanks to uncle Jay with United Evergreen for overnighting the beautiful flowers seen throughout this shoot.”
So many awesome ideas here! Some of my favorite elements of this Dukes of Hazzard party are:
The pie tin cake stand
The vintage wooden soda crates
The vintage car cake
This is what Mariah said about planning this party- “This ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Birthday party was an instant hit amongst the little kids as well as the adults. Reminiscent of the hit television show from the 80’s, the theme brought a nostalgic feel to this little boy’s birthday party. His dad’s favorite show growing up was the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’, so what better way to bring the old into the new! It was important to include all things ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ from the hay bales to the vintage wood barn door. It was a classic part of the show where cousins Luke and Bo would jump the car over hay bales and through barn doors. We also included old tires, vintage gas tanks, a custom vintage lunch menu and we cannot forget daisies honoring the infamous Daisy Duke.”

How cool is this 80′S ROCK STAR 30TH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Laura Harper of My Pookie Designs! So many totally awesome ideas!
Here is what Laura had to say about planning the party- “My sister-in-law asked me to do a party for one of my dbrothers who turned the big 30. It was fun to combine two themes together, 80′s and Rock Star. I chose neon and black for the color scheme, because what’s more fun and totally rockin’ than neon!?
On the dessert table, there were: microphone push pops made with chocolate pudding, snickers, whipped cream, brownies and crushed Oreos (so fun and so scrumptious), drum sticks (pretzel rods), black sixlets, California Raisins (picture pasted on mini raisin boxes), Pop Rocks, rock candy, and my personal favorite, Rock Star drinks with custom labels I designed. LOVE how they turned out, the picture of my brother couldn’t be more perfect. I liked the idea to have a place for people to write their name so they don’t forget which drink is theirs.
Tin pails were used as containers and stands. There were simple black tablecloths sprinkled with silver stars, and a backdrop covered in neon shapes- even Pac Man! Pretty simple set up, but the details made all the difference including the beacon, disco and party lights!
We had a photo op with inflatable guitars, glasses, neon bracelets plus some totally rockin’ 80′s styles! There was an inflatable air guitar contest for the kids in which they were all rated by judges (they all got a 10 of course) and received a trophy stuffed with candy. I also designed some fun VIP Backstage Passes for everyone to wear. We jammed all night long to 80′s rock music, Rock band and karaoke! Everyone had a blast!”
