This precious LITTLE PRINCE THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Rogeria Britto of Sweet Memories Parties Design!
Rogeria said this about planning the party- “I had such a great time designing and styling this party! I am originally from Brazil and even though I live in Orlando – Fl for a long time, I have always wanted to work on this project, since The Little Prince is my favorite childhood book. In Brazil, this is a popular theme and last year I finally had a client asking me to design her son’s first Birthday Party using this amazing book as inspiration. The party was for around 90 people so it explains the amount of sweet treats and party favors! Brazilians usually celebrate “big”! I tried my best to represent all the characters on the tables and I used papier mache to make his little planet that also worked as my focal point. I just love handmade party stuff! One of the things I really think that works very well in kids parties, is to have small tables and chairs for them to sit and eat, that’s why I also incorporated their own sitting area! I know this isn’t something new, but when I see how happy they get when they find those small tables set up just for them, it makes me smile!”

Up next is this fabulous SHREK + PUSS IN BOOTS THEMED FIFTH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Amber Gannon. Wow, what details! Amber did a wonderful job! I hope you gain a lot of inspiration and ideas from this darling party…
Amber said this about planning the party- “This Puss in Boots 5th birthday party was a dream for Callum and his friends. Because the theme is not common, creativity was key! We went with a very spanish theme for the food table and main decor. The chili bar, grilled chicken swords, quesadillas and magic bean cups were fun enough for the kids and sophisticated enough to please the adults, too. The golden eggs (pineapple sprinkled in edible gold glitter) were a major hit! A little something for everyone…
For drinks, I wanted to offer something a bit healthier than juice or soda, so I made a flavored water with raspberries and limes. In the custom Puss in Boots Hat adorned cups, the kids didn’t know the difference. I did, however, indulge them just a bit with dessert. Since my son doesn’t prefer plain milk, we went with little shots of chocolate milk lined in edible gold glitter.
For the desserts, I wanted a much lighter look with more of a nod to the Jack in the Beanstalk part of the story. The bar was covered in twinkly, fluffy clouds to go with the beanstalk cake. The dessert bar featured cloud meringue cookies, beanstalks, beanpoles, magic beans, paw print cookies and of course, the cake!
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of planning this party was creating the party favors. I love a great take-home favor that isn’t “trinket trash.” With the help of Callums grandma, we custom made each cape that was paired with a black mask and a sword, of course. The kids went crazy for them and wore them during the party. It totally set the mood. The adorable parting gift was a little package containing a magic bean. A small pot, bag of dirt and individual message bean were included with instructions of how to plant their seed. It turned out so cute! This party was such a blast! The kids had the best time and are still talking about it!!”

Who doesn’t love the classic Snow White? This darling SNOW WHITE THEMED THIRD BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Susana and Clara of Dulcesobremesa.
Susana and Clara said this about planning the party- “Mirror, mirror on the wall …Who is turning three?” (In Spanish, “Espejito, espejito…¿quién cumple tres añitos?”) We created this mini snack table for a girl’s third birthday party that took place at the preschool her mom owns. We used some elements of her favorite nursery tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to style the table. Instead of using the classic red, blue an yellow colors we used a light coral and aquamarine color palette with some touches of sunglow yellow and beige to give it a softer look. Included on the table were bacon and onion bite size quiches, ham and cheese brioches, nutella cupcakes, mini dulce de leche cupcakes and oreo cake. We designed absolutely everything and, as always, all the paper decorations were handmade by us.”

This absolutely adorable LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD FAIRYTALE FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Katelyn Meekel of Events by Kate.
Katelyn said- “Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Sadie. Sadie was just about to encounter the most enchanting and whimsical first birthday! My little girl has finally turned 1! What a special milestone, we had such a fun time!
Décor: The main display was three tables, the center being a vintage secretary desk that was covered in red and white checkered plaid, and green forest moss. The backdrop was designed by me, and the photo was from my printable design collection. The frame is rustic and custom made for the event. All printable designs were made by myself in my design shop for the event, and used throughout the display! We did a photo session with my daughter and her “wolf” our family dog, that is part German Sheppard and husky, and made the perfect addition to the photos! Some of the photos from the session were included in the display as well!
Food: I did various foods for the event including a gorgeous cake designed by myself and created by the wonderful cake shop “Sweet Spot Cupcakes” who have created flawless cakes for me time and time again! They also put together push up pops for me “Black FOREST cake” to theme to our event! They were a perfect tasty treat to add to the display! I did cupcakes, with matching toppers, forest veggies, homemade tiramisu served with strawberries, hot artichoke dip, and “Grandma’s apples”! I made fruit punch, and served a variety of candies, including “forest berries, grandma’s gingersnaps, and sweet peaches”! I also did custom candy bars, and water bottles as well!
Favors: The cutest little picnic baskets you ever did see! With printable designs by myself: and cute tiny chocolates inside!
I also had straws with adorable toppers added in the party as well and wooden spoons, because it fit beautifully with the décor!”
