I’m so happy to share this colorful, bright and happy Sunshine & Blue Skies Birthday Party by Petite Pomme. There are so many DIY and homemade details that make this party so special. Here is a little bit more about the party in the works of Irene,
We wanted a party inspired by a sunny day and all the fun things that come with warm sunshine…popsicles, blue skies, ice cream, watermelon, pretty flowers…ah, all the things that remind us that summer is just around the corner!!
After months of cold and rainy weather, we lucked out and had the first weekend of summer heat – in April (hooray for California weather!). The kids had a great time enjoying the slip-n-slide (remember those!?) and the wade pool in the sun.
A simple chalkboard and hanging paper wind chime inspired garland greeted guests on the porch. As they entered, 3-D clouds hung over a darling photograph of newborn Mari along with a cluster of white vases. The popsicle invitation was displayed here as well.
The sunny sweets table was stocked with delicious treats (popsicle treats, jello shots-non alcoholic of course, meringues and flower shaped cookies). The simple Happy Birthday cake topper and pineapple flowers perfectly decorated the home-made Kahlua cake. A curtain of ombre paper ringlet garlands cascaded over delicate sheer panels to create the perfect background to the sunny sweets. The home-made pull-string piñata made an eye-catching focal point and was later enjoyed by all the kids.
Ombre traveled throughout the room in the “Happy Birthday” banner and blue circle garlands that hung in front of the windows/doors. A yellow half circle “sun” garland hovered over the buffet area, where delicious mini banh-mi (Vietnamese sandwiches), mac n’ cheese, chicken wings, broccoli slaw, curried couscous and Mexican fruit salad were served. Guests also enjoyed a refreshing fresh-squeezed citrus blend. All the food was labeled with adorable metal pail /green grass signs made of alphabet pasta.
Our sunny day and blue skies were definitely enjoyed both indoors and out!
Thank you so much for sharing Irene. And make sure to visit Petite Pomme for more wonderful parties!
