Real Party: Pinwheels & Pearls

This party makes me happy!  When I saw it sitting in my inbox, I truly got giddy trying to get the post up quickly!  It’s just a darling, unique party full of charming details that are sure to make you swoon the way I did!

Sent to me by Victoria Hudgins of The City Cradle, this “pinwheels & pearls” party was inspired by a Kat Spade ad (a girl after my own heart!) that came out this spring.  They lined over 50 pinwheels along their back fence, hung pearls in the tree and a thrift-store chandelier was painted white & pink for the occasion.  A desert bar with starburst pinwheel pops, pinwheel cupcakes and a doughnut tree in the center stole the show, and they set up a table at the perfect kid-height for coloring in pinwheels during the party. Boys were decked out in handmade pinwheel bow-ties, and the girls were adorned in pinwheel necklaces!
