Birthday Boy Domenic Turns Five!
Our little one turned five this week! As a lover of all things feminine, I struggle every year to find ideas (that I like) for little boy parties. I know it isn’t long before my sweetie starts requesting action figure themed parties so I’ve been taking advantage of his love for everything and styling seriously fashionable parties for him 🙂
This year is no exception. I found inspiration out shopping; pink glazed donuts at the grocery store, confetti and pastel party supplies at Target. Once I had the colors, I began to collect the pieces for the table starting with the stationery.
Confetti inspired invitations with matching RSVPs and pastel pink envelopes. Sending out RSVP cards for a little kid’s Birthday party may seem like overkill but I fully enjoy getting things in the mail; the more the merrier. I also like the way a full suite looks as opposed to one piece so I always say go big with stationery 😉 It’s all in the details…
For the table, I used a 4 person desk and re-purposed it with painted pink dining table legs. Each place setting started with an opaque glass charger topped with a pink linen napkin, and birthday hats. White depression milk glasses with paper straws and donuts + ceramic ice cream cone cups with homemade pink glazed mini donuts.A mini spoon for ice cream tasting on one side and a confetti stick on the other in place of a knife. KID friendly place settings. I made two cakes. One was inspired by my favorite donut, powdered sugar: yummmmm… and the other was this mini pink donut inspired naked and pink drip cake. I added blue cupcake toppers and candles to all of the treats to add another pastel color to the mix. These pink bow ties were custom made for the boys by my friends at Z Create Design! They are easy to clip on, magnet backs. The boys LOVED them.
