Carson's 3rd Birthday Party || The Inspiration

Monday, April 25, 2016

I'm in love with all things summer... especially when it comes to fun party themes! 
Growing up with a summer birthday, it was the best because I was able to have the birthday pool parties, the picnics, the weekend sleepover bday celebrations with friends, etc. However, having said that, I never got to wear the birthday crown at school, never got to bring cupcakes for lunch to celebrate, and sometimes friends were out of town on vacation... can you tell how much I remember?? Haha, it had its perks and its bummer aspects too I guess. 

Basically, I knew when Carson was destined to have a summer birthday, the celebrations would be big... I think you all know by now how much I LOVE to throw a party and this year, our little nugget is going to be celebrating her third birthday in the form of flamingo and pineapple party AKA the most fun party theme ever! [says this party planning lover of a lady]

Here's the inspiration board I created to send over to my friend Kate at Orange Valetine to help get her going on the design details and overall look: 




Give me all the lawn flamingos I can find, some themed pretty cookies from Summer's Sweet Shoppe, a proper stand for all things refreshment, and of course gold pineapples... well because anything with gold is just way more fun! Let the planning commence.

  6. This is adorable! If I had a girl, this would totally be her birthday theme! But I have a little boy and am struggling for birthday ideas to celebrate his upcoming first birthday. I cannot wait to see how her party turns out. I'm sure it will be adorable - you're so good at decorating and planning and all that jazz :)
