A Colorful Children’s Birthday Party

This colorful birthday party was posted over at Project Nursery yesterday….so cute, I just had to share it with you!

If your little girl is getting to that age where a princess party, or a “theme party” is just too babyish….try throwing a birthday party focused around a particular color palette.  Bright colors, fresh patterns….the combination has the makings for an adorable, yet “grown-up” birthday party!

Today, let’s talk about an orange and hot pink color palette.  Bright, festive and what little girl doesn’t love those colors?!

Invite your daughter’s guests with this darling invitation from Tiny Prints.  The colors work perfectly for our party inspiration, and I love how it pulls pattern into the mix.  To add an unexpected element to the party, ask all of the guests to dress in the pop colors.

Create a festive party space with hot pink and orange round lanterns, striped lanterns, balloons, and colorful centerpieces.  I love the use of gerber daisies in the picture above…..adorable used in a full bunch, but also try adding a little flair to a basic candlestick.  Punching a hole thru the middle of a silk daisy, and place it at the base of a candlestick.  Slide your taper candle thru the hole, and voila!  To add a touch of pattern to this table setting, use a variety of patterned melamine plates.  Unbreakable, re-usable, and totally cute!  Play into the “color” part of this concept and tie a small pack of crayons to each napkin, and place a tiny coloring book at each girls place at the table.

To add a “grown up” detail to dessert, dress up your daughter’s birthday cake with a pink candelabra candle!  Instead of sending the guests home with a traditional goodie bag filled with party favors, present your favors in small boxes.  Wrap them with bright orange paper, tie with a hot pink bow, and attach a personalized sticker that says “thanks for coming to my party” (the sticker matches the invitation, of course!)
