PARTY DETAILS, as told by Misha…
My daughter Talula was turning 4 and I wanted to come up with a birthday theme she would absolutely LOVE! I also had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Tiny Prints and incorporate some of their fabulous products into this most magical of parties!
It all started with Talula’s love for squirrels and bunnies and a lovely blue and pink floral Ralph Lauren dress. And what little girl doesn’t love a tea party! That was the inspiration, and with that…Talula’s Enchanted Four-est Tea Party was born!
Like always, I started by designing the invitation and party printables. I decided on a cobalt blue, bright pink, olive green, birch bark and sparkly gold color palette. The invitation turned out simply stunning! I used the most adorable panoramic picture of Miss Talula peeking out from behind a tree in a magical forest-like setting, added the cobalt blue, floral, and birch accents and …wah-la! My favorite design to date was created! Then by carrying the elements from the invitation throughout the party allowed everything to stay cohesive.
Upon arrival, the guests were greeted by a darling mounted print hung on the front door with gorgeous green linen ribbon, featuring the birthday girl herself! It said “Welcome to Talula’s Enchanted Four-est Tea Party!” Super cute! Each little guest got a precious antique gold lace crown placed upon their heads and were led into the enchanted tea party.
The dessert table was actually a lovely white dresser adorned with a colorful bunting I made using the newest collection of Buttercream quilting fabrics from Joann’s. They matched perfectly!
The backdrop was a dainty, ruffled white drape. For the centerpiece, I hung from green ribbon, a beautiful 16×20 customized canvas print of the birthday girl in the forest. (The same picture from the invitation) And to add a little extra sparkle, I painted the edges of the canvas antique gold. This was another of the many items from Tiny Prints incorporated into the decor!
Set-up in front of the dessert table was a gorgeously set petite oval table surrounded by adorable mushroom stools just their size. Hanging above the table was a fir tree branch, finger-knitted ombré yarn moss and tissue balls to complete the enchanted forest theme.
Some of my favorite charming woodland details had to be the delectably sweet birch bark and floral two-tiered cake, the wood sliced pedestal displays, the favor bag containing a personalized woodland creature notebook and stick colored pencils, and last but not least, the fabulous woodland play-space I created using super sweet custom pillows adorned with squirrels, bunnies, hedgehogs and birch! Who knew Tiny Prints had pillows too! They have so many products like these that you can easily incorporate into all your parties and gatherings to give them that extra pop of fabulous!
I do hope you find much inspiration and ideas from this magical party to use in your next event or gathering!
