inspiration for celebration

Boho Chic American Girl Kaya Doll Inspired Party

You could call this party boho chic or sweet & shabby, but either way it’s quite DREAMY and incredibly fun! Right now, 5 year old birthday girl Nicole is totally into American Girl, especially the Native American doll Kaya, so that’s how this American Girl Kaya Doll Inspired Party came to be.

I love how designer/Mommy, Laila Plant of One Inspired Party, expertly paired rustic, earthy elements like wood slices & succulents with the sparkle and glam of a girls birthday party {i.e. sequined linens and gold dipped desserts}. Everything came together beautifully in this happy, colorful and naturally inspiring celebration!

P.S. See even more of Laila’s party talents in her daughter’s previous birthday parties too: “Splish Splash” Mermaid Bash (age 4) and “Wild Child” Safari Party (age 3).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Handmade dreamcatchers, teepee favor boxes, and sparkly arrow-inspired garlands
– Fantastic painted cookies from You Can Call Me Sweetie + Gold feather topped cupcakes
– Stunning photo backdrop featuring a giant dreamcatcher + sheer fabric “streamers”
– Sand art, bracelet making, and a visit from Kaya {with story time and rain dancing!}
– A thoughtful sunglasses station for guests, brigadeiros, and lots of Miami style!
