Brown Bear Brown Bear

One of my favorite times of day with my daughter is story time before bed. We both love to snuggle on her chair and read some great books. There are so many books in her collection that are new to me (Pinkalicious!!) and yet so many classics like Brown Bear Brown Bear. This is one of my favorite books and we were thrilled at the idea of designing a party around this wonderful theme.

Color is very important to the Brown Bear story. Each animal is a bright, bold color that children can relate to and remember. We started our design process with a fabulous dessert table. I found this amazing Brown Bear fabric on Etsy and it was the perfect base for the dessert table. Two bright yellow 36″ balloons were anchored on each side of our table. Custom colored tassels from One Stylish Party were made to attach to each balloon, corresponding to all of the colors in the book. We love how these small blue OLIVER balloons looked hung up behind the table.

White modern trays from Poppin were the perfect size and depth to be filled with different color jelly beans – This created the base for some delicious treats like cupcakes, cookies and candies.  To add height on the table, we also filled glass cubes with colored jelly beans to put underneath the trays in the back row. Each animal was from the story was represented on the table.  Our amazing sweets girl Angela from Making that Cake carved all of these gorgeous animals out of sugar. Can you even believe how amazing they are? We were blown away!

For the cake, I loved the way Angela 
incorporated each animal while still keeping it relatively simple and classic.

With all of these sweets, we also included some colorful fruit kabobs for guests to nibble on once they had their sugar intake for the day! Kraft take-home containers were displayed so guests could take a gorgeous cupcake or treat home with them after the party.

We recently launched Little Miss Party in a Box and our Birthday Box was the perfect addition to this party! The colorful paper goods work so well with any themed party, especially a colorful one like this.

In addition to tableware and cutlery, we set up the kids table complete with party hat, personalized water bottle and felt animal masks for each child. Brown Bear themed blocks were scattered around the table for the little ones to play with and a lucite tray was filled with small containers of goldfish in case anyone needed a snack before lunch.

We styled additional 36″ confetti balloons with matching tassels around the room, anchored in glass cubes we filled with white jelly beans. Along the bar we set up white wooden frames with pictures of Oliver throughout his first year. Pictures are always an important part of a 1st birthday celebration as kids grow and change so dramatically in that first year!

The favors for this party were some of the best we’ve ever done. The older kids got a Brown Bear puzzle and the younger kids received a Lollacup in the shape of a red bird. Each favor was wrapped up with a clear box of animal crackers with a personalized sticker, ribbon and yellow mini honeycomb.  A Thank you tag was attached to each that read “That you BEARY much for coming to my party!” I had extra Brown Bear fabric so I laid it on the table beneath the favors and it was the perfect way to tie it all together.Olly1st007-XL
To keep the kids entertained we brought in Penny and the Puppettes who always do an amazing job with the little ones! Their 45 min show keeps them engaged and loving every second! We set out foam mats on the floor along with a bunch of Duplo blocks for the kids to play with.  It looks like the adults had just as much fun as the kids!

Valentine’s Day with Chex…The Snack Table.

Chex Table 5
I love a good challenge. So when Little Miss Party approached me about restyling their Halloween Chex Little Miss Party in a Box, of course I couldn’t resist!

The box arrived on my doorstep just as cute as can be. The attention to detail and adorable packaging made it feel like I was opening a present.
Chex Table 1

I took an inventory of what I had and decided to focus on three key items to pull together a simple and sweet Valentine’s Day snack table. The other goodies will be saved to for next Halloween.

While planning out what I was going to do for the set-up, I opened up the box of Chocolate Chex and couldn’t get over how good they were just on their own. In fact, handfuls of the cereal kept disappearing each time my two young children would walk by! It was then that I realized, I could serve the Chocolate Chex straight out of the box on the snack table. I mean, it doesn’t get any more hassle free than that!
Chex Table 10

I used the chevron favor bags embellished with a gold foil heart sticker to serve the Chex mix. And on the other side of the table, I included the black and white striped cups also embellished with the same gold foil heart sticker. Sticking with my no hassle approach to snacks on the table, I looked to my pantry and decided to add some cereal bars stacked on a cake plate in the center of the table.

Chex Table 8

I decided to drape some gold sequin fabric behind the table and thought it could use another element, so I created an “XOXO” banner cut out from the chevron favor bags.
Chex Table 3
To make the banner, I blew up the letters “XO” in 550 pt font in Microsoft Word. I printed and cut the letters out and traced them on the favor bags. Then I cut the letters out of the favor bags, punched holes at the top and strung the letters on a strand of jute twine. It was so easy to make and turned out so cute!

Thanks Little Miss Party and Chex for sending along the box of goodies! I had fun putting together the snack table and my boys had even more fun devouring the treats with their friends!

Frozen in the Hamptons

This winter we had the pleasure of doing three Frozen themed birthday parties. There was a whole lot of “Let it Go” being sung, princess dresses worn and tiaras set on top of little girls heads.

Since Frozen paraphernalia is pretty much everywhere you turn we wanted to play off the characters and color palette of teal, purple and silver to make the theme a little more chic…

This particular party that we are featuring today was for the sweet girls who belong to Colette Lettieri. We came in one night and transformed their kitchen into a Frozen wonderland for the girls to wake up to.

A large marquee star from Restoration Hardware set the stage for bagels & schmear, our favorite way to serve up brunch. We styled purple and white flowers around the room. And of course we set up jumbo balloons from One Stylish Party with tissue tassel to boot.

For the desserts we created a magical table with our friend Angela from Making that Cake. Cake pops topped with purple glitter, ombre rice krispie squares, mini cupcakes that we styled onto a bed of blue jelly beans and a cake topped with snowflakes!

My favorite part of this party was the new discovery that we made with Imagination Lane. Deanna, the founder of this company creates custom crafts for kids tailored to specific themes or interests.

She put together the most amazing activities for the kids at this party such as “Do you want to build a snowman”? Snowmen were waiting for the kids to stick with felt for noses and arms, googly eyes and fabric markers to decorate. Kept them busy and happy!

Then…there was the tumble bus. Have you ever seen this? A bus pulls right onto your driveway and the kids can go inside and TUMBLE! Genius.

Happy Birthday to our new friends, Lexi & Sloan. Hope you had the party of your dreams ladies!

A Pop Up Party

Ok have you ever heard of a Pop Up Party? I hadn’t. Until my friends over at Flatiron 27 put this together…you’ve gotta check it out…
PopUpParty 2 12.16.14
With the holidays fast approaching, having a fully stocked bar is a must - particularly if you are hosting a New Years Eve party. Flatiron27 was inspired to create a sparkling-chic cocktail cart by our friend Little Miss Party and Little Miss New Years Eve in a box. The black and gold themed party in a box couldn’t make hosting a New Years party any easier - or more stylish. It comes with everything you need to host a bash - from the decorations, to the champagne flutes and party hats. All you need to buy is the champagne! We found an incredibly cool vintage Italian bar cart on 1st Dibs (here is one more option) and stocked it full of fun bar essentials including a Bauhaus cocktail shakerShagreen Tray and lots of metallic accents. Read on to see how we plan to decorate – and celebrate New Years in style!
