I have to say…it’s been a while since I have been THIS excited to show off one of my parties to you. I just love creating parties styled around children’s books, so I was so excited when my client asked me to create a custom suite of party goods and style a party around a beloved children’s book. The goal was simple: bright, primary colors, a focus on fruit and a modern interpretation of everyone’s favorite caterpillar.
I started by designing the collection of paper goods, including an exclusive caterpillar illustration, and two patterns that appeared throughout the entire party: a colorful polka dot and a green and yellow chevron pattern.
The table setting held one of my favorite elements to the party…..a 3-D caterpillar centerpiece that I crafted from painted mini paper lanterns, and grass plants. A table runner made from our polka dot fabric, simple yellow plates, and striped silverware from Pottery Barn Kids added to the whimsical look.
Simple yellow plates held a charming apple cupcake, which was inspired by Amy Atlas’s new book, Sweet Designs. Grass cupcake wrappers tied in our theme to the wheat grass centerpiece. Each child had a name plate hanging on the back of their colorful chair, each featuring a different fruit from the collection.
