Whimsical Wednesday: Birthday Parties

As many of you know, I'm a bit of a party planner.

I love it. I think it's in my bones, actually.
So when it comes to birthday parties...specifically 1st birthday parties...I'm all over it.
Right now, I'm slightly obsessed with dessert tables and party themes. A theme can really be anything...

a colour

a character

a cake!

Inspiration is everywhere, if you just take a step back and look, you certainly will find it.

I'm sure where you can see this going.

Our son is going to be 1 in a few months (eek!) and I'm already busily planning his birthday party extravaganza!

The wording for the invitations is done, and their design is in the back of my head.

While he absolutely adores Mickey Mouse and the entire Clubhouse gang, we're not going to go overboard with having Mickey's lovely face plastered everywhere.

Instead, we're using the colours as inspiration and doing fun things like

Hanging Door Decor with stamped images

Sweet Treat bags with handmade Mickey closures

Blockhead Party hats from Twirlie Whirlies

Treat Flags with polka dots

You see...a theme just needs a little whimsy and inspiration!
