I love parties. I love birthday parties. And I especially love birthday parties that are centered around a book. I've shared these creations on the blog before but wanted to show you how my super creative and talented friend, Jenni, put it all together for her daughter's "Blueberries for Sal" themed birthday party.
Invitations. I created this invite that Jenni was able to just print at any online photo store (i.e. shutterfly, snapfish, costco) on matte photo paper. There are also online companies that can print these digital files on cardstock for a pretty reasonable price (i.e. overnight prints, shutterfly).
Banner. Blue gingham, tin pails and yellow "2"s became recurring themes throughout the party and this banner set the tone nicely.
Food. I think that everything and anything with blueberries was served at this adorable birthday party. I'm talking homemade blueberry pie, muffins, scones, cake, blueberry lemonade spiked with vodka...YUM!! Jenni made the food labels using blue gingham patterned paper, white cardstock, and little bucket images that I made to match the other party decor.
|The bakery was able to match the bucket image. How adorable is this?! And may I say that the cake was also delicious!|
|Jenni's created this sweet food labels. And the table spread was so gorgeous - especially with accents like this galvanized metal tiered stand.|
|Charlotte certainly had her fill of blueberries. :)|
Games. There were games and activities planned throughout the party just perfect for all the little toddlers - a stamping/ art station, story time, a present unwrapping game, and this super cute activity where each child got to "pick" their own special blueberry. Cuteness overload.
Birthday Favors. Each guest left with a jar of local Maine blueberry jam (!!!) and the kids got a tin pail filled with some of the birthday girl's favorite goodies - stamps, bubbles, stickers. I just love how the favors looked with the tags I made.
Birthday Girl. Jenni ordered the birthday girl this adorable shirt. Makes me wish I had an embroidering machine and could actually sew. Charlotte was clearly envious. :)
