Wild Child Birthday Party - animals wearing party hats

My youngest daughter turned 4 in December… her birthday is on the 16th, which basically means right smack in the middle of the craziest time of year for almost everyone I know, including myself. ;) We decided to have a small, playdate style get-together with her 3 preschool besties and their big sisters (and her own big sis, of course!). Since Rylie loves animals, acting silly, and anything girlie, we hosted a Wacky Wild Animal Party filled with bright colors, sparkly pom poms, and cute animals wearing party hats!

My birthday is 2 days before Rylie’s, so my mom (aka Grandma) got an extra-awesome gift/activity for the party to treat us both! A trainer from Wild Wonders  – an animal education facility just outside San Diego – brought over of the coolest little “party crashers” you ever did see… scroll down for a closer peek! ;)

Wild Child Birthday Kids Table and Balloons

I designed some funky party animal plates for the birthday table that featured a rhino, elephant, fox, and bunny. Why is it so fun to give animals party hats and cheeky glasses?!

Party Animal Plates

I often make my own party plates (see the tutorial here), but this is the first time I used the plastic plates from Michaels. These were a little more time consuming since you have to hand-cut the paper designs – the plate edges are slightly rounded so you can’t use a paper cutter – but the quality of the plates is good and overall they worked well!

Colorful beads and mini plastic animal figurines made for a fun bracelet and necklace making activity…

I am no stranger to the amazing parties that happen at LA-based party space the COOP, so when co-owner Lucinda sent over this “Sprinkle Dot Fun” Rainbow Birthday Blast, I knew it was going to be something really special — and boy, did she not disappoint! This party is absolutely exploding with DOTTED desserts and POPS of colorful confetti. It’s so hard to pick a favorite detail, but the candy dot marshmallows (handmade by Lucinda!) and the mini balloon drink stirrers are not to be missed. :)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Custom krazy straws & dipped rice krispie place settings + beautiful pink & purple floral centerpieces
– Easy stick-on rainbow dots & clear balloon ‘bubble’ backdrop + sewn streamers of rainbow dots
– Circle cut tissue paper covered bottles (topped with doughnuts), party hats & champagne flutes
– Rainbow confetti topped cakes + amazing candy filled, meringue topped ice cream cones
– Sugar rimmed kid-friendly martinis + large inflatable doughnut & confetti popper photo booth

This party is literally “A Dream Come True” for my 4-year-old self, so I’m guessing that Kamryn and her princess-clad party guests had the BEST time at her Glamorous Cinderella Birthday Party! Mommy, Krista O’Byrne of Hoopla Events, and partner-in-planning Jennifer Carver of Banner Events, gathered a talented team of vendors for her daughter’s (golden!) 4th birthday. After Loralee Lewis brought “royal style” […]
