Paper airplanes, fantastic treats, bright colors and lots of fun activities — what little boy could resist?! Ngoc Nguyen Lay of Skybox Event Productions planned this super stylish Boys will be Boys First Birthday Party for her adorable ‘little rascal’. All of the details of this party are so sunny & happy — the perfect way to celebrate your little’s one’s big day! P.S. This look would also be super cute as a gender neutral baby shower.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– ‘Sandbox’ cake stand on a grassy table mat + DIY bright felt clouds backdrop
– Adorable pom topped party hats & burlap wooden block letters
– ‘Jenga’ style french toast stacks, mini fruit & ‘cloud’ meringue tarts + other brunch finger foods
– Cleverly designed career predicting game + kid-approved ball pit & play area

PARTY DETAILS as told by Ngoc

Theme/Design Idea: I was going for a modern, but classic birthday party…with paper airplanes, newspaper boats, and all things boy! This party was created for my little rascal with dirty knees and frogs in his pockets.

Some of my favorite party details were:

– Custom 3 tier cake, cake stand (sandbox) on grass like rug with cloud backdrop
– Dessert table with mini desserts and vintage milk jars
– Custom paper goods
– Goodie bags were milk and cookies packed in a classic lunch bag
– Centerpieces: blue mason jars with playful yellow mums
– Food table included finger foods for the kids like Jenga french toast, pizza and club sandwiches
– Paper airplane and newspaper boat folding station
– Predicting career game and guessing station

This is a great theme for a boy's first birthday. The colors are so cheerful but not overwhelming. The sandbox cake on the grass is a wonderful look. Plenty of activities to keep the kids busy and the adults occupied. Simply fantastic!
