Over the river and through the woods is an adorable Little Red Riding Hood! I love Renee Falckh of Lottie and Me‘s mod minimalist approach to her daughter Charlotte’s Little Red Riding Hood Woodland Wonderland 1st Birthday. My absolute favorite part is the photo banner and garland over a beautifully touching poem for baby Charlotte. And I think we can all agree that the cake is just too cute for words!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Adorable party favors including red gingham picnic baskets for the girls & blue gingham trundles for the little
- Enchanting woodsy decor like moss-covered rocks, succulent terrarium centerpieces & tall twig backdrops
- DIY framed burlap with a felt cutout of Red Riding Hood over the stunning woodland dessert table
- Sweet apple cake pops, toadstool sugar cookies & lots of other little red treats!
PARTY DETAILS as told by Renee…
Over the river through the woods to Granny’s house you go. “Beware of the Wolf” the sign reads as you walk past beautiful woodland flowers that line the driveway. Into the entry hall guests were asked to sign the guest book for Charlotte to keep as a momento when she gets older.
Walking into the lounge you are greeted by a beautiful sweets table, savory table and favors table. It felt like a woodland wonderland with red chair sashes and hanging red tissue paper pom-poms. The deep green moss and raw timber logs balanced and gave depth to the room.
I wanted to keep the feeling natural, organic yet sophisticated, so the savory and dessert tables were decorated with moss. The sweets table had all of Red’s favorites with apple-shaped cake pops, mushroom cookies and red apples. The savory table was filled with scrumptious sandwiches, scones and muffins. Accompanied by Red’s water bottles and Forest Fruit Punch.
My favorite was the favors table — the little Red’s all got a picnic basket and the little wolves received a campers swag stick both filled with chocolate truffles. Every family received a magnolia seedling to take home and watch it grow.
The children were kept busy with a painting production line with pictures of Red Riding Hood, Granny and the Wolf.
