Oh, the Places He'll Go...

Another fantastic theme dreamed up by yet another stellar client! 
Mom came up with the idea of using the popular Dr. Seuss book,
  Oh, the Places You'll Go as inspiration for a special 1st birthday party for their son. 
She wanted to incorporate "travel," as they have done a little with their little man 
& are looking forward to "going places" in the future!

Where will he go? What experiences await? What will he see & who will he meet? 
Many wonderful adventures to come for Beckham... & his parents! 

Invitations by Little Laws Prints

Guests were asked to write a special message to Beckham in this book... what a keepsake!

Mom took photos of Beckham every month & chose to display them at the party!

Book character come to life!

A talented friend of mine printed in his "seussical" font on my directional signs!

Special decor request... Truffula Trees!
I created large, medium & small trees to add a bit of whimsy.
Dessert table backdrop made with paint color samples to mimic the balloons in the book.

Favor packaging was inspired by book illustrations & the party invitation.

Happy 1st Birthday Beckham! I was honored to be apart of the celebration. 
"Oh, the Places You'll Go" are sure to be quite amazing!

Don't be late...

...for this very important date!
What do you do when a little girl requests a tea party to celebrate her birthday?
You take her down the rabbit hole for some MAD TEA PARTY, 4 year old fun!

Red felt chandeliers from IKEA were spray painted black to match the party decor. 
I repurposed a Mackenzie-Childs ornament box to hold the directional sign & clock. 
Clocks from World Market were also spray painted black to coordinate. 

I love to create place settings for parties. 
Teeny doilies & small blue cups with appetizer forks are perfect for toddler tea parties. 
 Mackenzie-Child's "Courtly Check" pieces were placed throughout the party decor & were the perfect complement to the bright party colors.
