I am in love with this PETER PAN 4TH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Jenny Keller of Jenny Cookies!! Not only does Jenny style exquisite desserts, but she throws some fabulous parties as well!Jenny said- “My sweet little Hudson turned 4 a few weeks ago, which I can still hardly believe. We celebrated Hudson’s fourth birthday by throwing him a Peter Pan party. He was thrilled with his invitations we sent out in bottles, and could hardly wait to wear his Peter Pan costume. He was a little disappointed though when he discovered the costume didn’t make him fly. Trust me, he tried jumping off the bed. (Thank goodness it was just the bed.) The Kellers became Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Wendy Darling, and Princess Tigerlily for Hudson’s big day! His party took place on the beach at Kayak Point State Park. We woke up to rainclouds and sprinkles but by the time we got out to the beach the rain had stopped and the sun was shining. It was a birthday miracle. (If you know me, it rains about 75% of the time I’m planning an outdoor party.) The kids had a blast at the beach. They had a Peter Pan picnic on a pirate ship table, dug for buried treasure, sword fought mean Captain Hook, had their faces painted, and of course ate more sugar than their parents would have agreed to.” Items available in Kara’s Party Ideas Shop:
What a cute shower idea! I just love this LITTLE BRAVE MAN BABY SHOWER submitted by Carrie Rowe of Cue the Confetti! The colors, the location, the decorations…it’s all darling!Carrie Said- “My friend Jennie and I had the joy and honor of throwing a baby shower for our sweet friend Kelli. We went with a semi-modern, arrows, teepees, and feathers theme. We knew it was a good fit for Kelli, we didn’t want (and knew she wouldn’t want) a “traditional” baby shower. Ashley of “Thorn + Sparrow” was on board with the theme and made fun invites and an adorable print as a favor. The party was thrown at Kelli’s in-laws cabin in the woodsy area of Kalispell, Montana and it went so well with the theme of the party! We had plenty if DIY’s (tutorials are at cuetheconfetti.com) from painted wooden forks, arrow cupcake toppers, painted utensils, and more. We didn’t want to play any baby shower games, so instead we all made faux arrows for Kelli to use in the babies room as decor and they are amazing. We offered a large spread of yummy food including “caprese canoes” and “teepee trailmix&q uot;. It was a lovely time to honor Kelli, celebrate this new life, eat food, chat with friends, and just hang out.” Vendors and Credits:
I’m so excited to share the POW WOW THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY I styled last month. This party is actually in my upcoming book and is one of the select parties you get to see before the book hits shelves this October!
All of the amazing photos were taken by Valerie Hart Photography. Valerie is so talented, and has been an absolute joy to work with.The party was set among the infamous red rock and sand in Snow Canyon, Utah. It was such a gorgeous setting, and the perfect location for the party. A lot of fun desserts and treats were created for the party. The edible teepees were made by dipping ice cream sugar cones in melted white Wilton Candy Melts® and decorating with licorice string and various candies. “Corncob Twinkies®” were made by simply spreading frosting over Twinkies® and placing Reese’s Pieces® in rows on top of the frosting. The cupcakes on top of the old toy drum were topped with fondant corncob cupcake toppers that I ordered from Parkers Flour Patch. The adorable teepee cake pops were ordered online from Etsy shop, Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sin’s. Cute cactus-shaped sugar cookies were ordered online from All Things Exquisite. Totem poles were made out of tootsie rolls and cupcakes were topped with small dreamcatchers. For activities the children colored and put together small cardboard teepees using a kit from my shop and filled glass jars with colored sand. They also cut out cute paper doll banners, a download from Happy Paper Hearts. Small bows and arrows and little dolls were given to each child to play with throughout the party and take home afterwards. Vendor Credits:
