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…

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!

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.

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).
