Parties by WH Hostess: Preppy Dino

One of the best parts of my job is receiving e-mails from happy clients.  I love hearing that their party went well and that we were able to help make it a little extra special!  I was thrilled to receive photos from our client, Joanna, this week showing images from her son’s recent  birthday party.  And even more thrilled to see the party featured on Amy Atlas yesterday!

The party was for Wyatt’s 4th birthday incorporating his most recent obsession… DINOSAURS!  The party was held in their backyard in Laguna Hills, CA.  Joanna came to us to create a custom suite of party goods with a blue, green and orange color palette.  Throw in a few mod patterns (including a colorful chevron that I am just smitten with) and some creative wording, and our preppy dino collection was born!

The colorful chevron and blue tile pattern were carried throughout the party into signage, banners, water bottle labels and accessories.  I love how creative Joanna got with the wording of her signs – everything was based around dinosaur names.

The dessert table was cute and colorful.  The vertical space above the table was defined with a coordinating pennant banner and colorful paper lanterns.  The bright linens really made the food pop, and the themed sweets were just darling!

Cupcake toppers from our preppy dino collection stood atop cupcakes in orange wrappers, striped candy in blue, orange and green were placed in candy jars with personalized tags, and then there was the cake.  The cake held center stage on the table and was made by Blackmarket Bakery.  Two Sugar Babies created the fondant dinosaurs and chevron letters that spelled out “Wyatt” to dress up the cake….isn’t it darling!?
