Kids Birthday

Boho Picnic at the Park

A picnic in the park in the middle of summer was the perfect setting for my daughter’s 10th birthday. To keep with the boho style we laid out rugs and blankets and added colorful pillows for the girls to sit on. My favorite feature of all of the decor was this fabric chandelier that we made with strips of different fabric tied around 2 quilting rings and hung with string. It was the perfect centerpiece and Joss was able to help me make it since it was so easy to do.

We set up next to a small stream that the girls could play in to cool off after their lunch. Greenery headbands adorned their lunch bags so they could all have one to wear during the picnic.





This coffee table bench from Ikea was just the right size to hold all of the girl’s lunches and to sit in front of to eat.

We made Jossie’s headband a little more special by adding flowers to it as well.

After they ate lunch we played squirt gun tag with colorful water guns that we brought for each of the girls.

Joss loved it:)





She requested a Dream Cake which is one of my specialties so I was happy to oblige. I adorned it with flowers and macarons, her favorite cookie.

Because they’re her favorite cookie, we made little boxes of macarons as the party favors. Not the easiest treat to make but totally worth the effort!

These tissue paper flowers and greenery were the only other decorations besides the chandelier, pillows and blankets. So bright and colorful and so simple to make.






This teepee from Land of Nod was perfect for taking pics of the girls inside it and it held all of the gifts as the girls arrived.

Such a fun day for such a great girl!!

 

 

Rainbow Birthday Party

When I had the idea for this rainbow themed party for my daughter’s 5th birthday I immediately knew that I wanted to do a ‘Rainbow Wall’. Streamers were the perfect way to make it. We just used off-white masking tape to hold down the top and bottom of each strand of streamers and to make it less visible since my ceiling and baseboards were white. It was definitely a time-consuming project but had exactly the impact that I wanted it to.

Vases of flowers in rainbow colors was another element I knew I wanted to have at her party. Everyone knows how much I love flowers and these just added that much more cheeriness and brightness to her party.




Finding activities to keep a bunch of 5 year olds happy was key at Farah’s party. We printed off these rainbow images and had markers, stickers, glue and cottonballs ready for the kids to design their own rainbows.

The craft was a hit as well as the gold coins on the table for the kids to snack on while they worked.

 

 

Couldn’t have done it without my little helper!!



I chose pastel rainbow colors to decorate the house with since it was a girl’s party. Having the party in Spring made this color palette work that much better.

Gold coins for the favor was a hit with everyone.

This rainbow cake by Annie Bee Cakery was darling inside and outside, and just as delicious as it was cute.

 

Having 2 separate stations, one where the kids could do their craft and one where they could eat cake was nice so the craft area didn’t have to be cleaned up right after the crafting was done and we moved onto games.

Rainbow colored bottled drinks went perfectly with the rainbow cake.



Everyone had a blast, especially the birthday girl!! We played pin the hair on the troll and hot potato with a stuffed troll and freeze dance to the music from Trolls. Such a great day!!
