{Rustic Wild West} Cowboy 1st Birthday Party

We recently styled a farm party (which you’ll see hopefully soon!), so my subconscious is still on the lookout for cute country western ideas. So it’s no wonder why I am loving this Rustic Wild West Cowboy 1st Birthday Party, styled by Jen of Tiny Spark with printables from Lauren Haddox of Lauren Haddox Design. Even though this is a cowboy party, I’m thinking about how so many of these ideas would have been so cute! Like using wheat in the floral arrangements — I’m definitely tucking that away for the future!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Chicken feed chex mix, rawhide beef jerky, haystacks, marshmallow s’more pops & bacon cupcakes
– Cowboy hats & bandanas for each guest + mini bindles & Happy Trails trail mix favors
– Red gingham tablescape & a kids’ corral with haystack benches covered in burlap & fur
– Red carnation bouquets, striped cowboy silhouette printables & a fluorescent moon lamp

Rockin Old School Hip Hop Dance Birthday Party

Turn up the beats and get ready to groove! Anne Kilcullen of Seedlings by Blade busted out all of her moves to create this Rockin’ Old School Hip Hop Dance Birthday Party for her son Max. With nods to 80′s & 90′s era hip hop, it’s hard not to feel nostalgic for parties like this — just look at those boomboxes! I am also totally loving the graffiti decor, especially that amazing photo booth wall. Such a fun pop of color!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Chocolate pretzel microphones & a boombox topped birthday cake + microphone photo booth props
– Mixtape signs & a custom graffiti name + ‘Raise the Roof’ backdrop banner & tape streamers
– Hat decorating activity & Pin the needle on the record game + Old School Boombox birthday shirt

Scottie Dog in Paris Birthday Party

For a fun & youthful Parisian party, Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties combined French inspired sweets & decor with the birthday girl’s favorite pup to create a Scottie Dog in Paris Birthday Party that was anything but stuffy. I love how the mix of the classic Parisian party details like damask patterns and Eiffel Towers and adorable Scottie dogs created a perfectly tailored theme for the birthday girl. Just think of all of the fun twists you could add to a Parisian party! Ooh la la!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Purple chocolate Eiffel Tower pops + an Eiffel Tower & Scottie dog topped pink birthday cake
– Ooh La La Lemonade table with a pink & purple paper pinwheel backdrop
– Eiffel Tower decorating activity & a Pin the Scottie dog on the Eiffel Tower game with custom face masks
– Scottie dog silhouette toppers on candy cups & rose arrangements & Scottie dog purse party favors

DIY Tutorial: Quick & Easy Glittered Utensils

Guess what… a party craft doesn’t have to be complicated to be great! These Glittered Wooden Utensils are super simple and one of my favorite quick & easy ways to add sparkle to any table – from kids table place settings to grown up appetizer and dessert buffets. And while we all know that glitter has a tendency to kind of get on everything, this particular little project is much less messier than you might expect – with a little help from a handy thing called glitter tape! (P.S. Glitter tape comes in all sorts of colors too!)

This is a very straightforward project, but I know that sometimes a quick glance at a visual graphic of the steps can still be helpful, so here ya go:

I’m a fan of flamingos all year round, but there’s no denying that they fit in especially well during the warm summer months… which is probably one of the reasons I’ve seen flamingo parties (and flamingo everything else!) popping up so much lately. So for this month’s (Summer Themed) Free Printable Blog Hop, I decided […]
