REAL PARTIES: Orange Kites Birthday

It’s always so great to see an outside-the-box party theme, like this playful Orange Kites” birthday bash that Elizabeth from Posh Paperie created for her daughter Hailey’s 3rd birthday…

REAL PARTIES: Orange Kites Birthday

From an absolutely adorable orange kite birthday banner and playful kite-motif invitations to clever theme-coordinating elements like  floating orange balloons and wind-driven pinwheels in the centerpieces, Elizabeth did such a great job at bringing her unique theme to life!

REAL PARTIES: Orange Kites Birthday

“What 3 year old girl *loves* orange?! Mine.

So…i came up with a kite theme…{what else do you do with orange?}

We had the party at a park…the perfect place for flying kites!

After searching high and low5 stores to be exact – i found all things orange for the party… including orange decorations (balloons, banner, treat bags, etc.) and orange food & drinks.

I even found a custom hair clip on Etsy that was an orange kite for Hailey’s hair!

This is amazing! Would this be appropriate for a fall birthday? I know kites are more of a springtime idea, but I have an October baby, and wanted to use orange(i.e. pumpkins).
