When I was a kid, I loved the movie The Secret Garden and secretly wished that I would someday find a secret garden of my own (hasn’t happened yet) ;). Lucky for Bella, her mom (Emily Jack of Upon A Time Designs) beautifully styled this Bright & Cheery Rainbow Garden Birthday Party, so that she could have a secret garden of her own on her special day! With flowers, friendly bugs & lots of sunny rainbows, this party is sure to leave a smile on your face!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Custom garden rainbow dessert table backdrop + matching garden party printables
– Chocolate mud pots with gummy worms, rustic toffee apples + ladybug chocolate covered Oreos
– A garden coloring wall, flower & bug cutout photo booth & garden pot painting activity
– Pink garden ladybug birthday cake + pink flower hair clips & a green tutu for the birthday girl

PARTY DETAILS as told by Emily

For my daughter’s second birthday party, I wanted a theme that would reflect her interests, but also allow for some fun theme development. So with her love of the outdoors I decided on a garden party.

I designed an invitation and backdrop, followed by a complete collection of printables and based my styling and theming around those designs. We included little custom designed seed packets with the invitations.

At the party we had a colouring wall, mini pot plant painting, and lots of bubble blowing. The kids received a custom printed calico goodie bag at the end, filled with garden themed crafts and activities, including a custom activity book along with some soil and seeds to add to their painted pots.

It was such a lovely day and the kids all had a ball.
