Pink Donut Inspired Boy Party!

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.

A Date Night Flamingle!

Let’s Flamingle!

I don’t know about you, but I have fallen head over heels for the Flamingo craze over the course of this year!  This backyard date idea is an explosion of flamingo fun perfect for outdoor summer dining.  I’m usually ALL about keeping themes subtle but I just had to bring it up a notch for this Florida favorite…

Special thanks to my lovely friend, Danae, for modeling the date!

These geometric plates are what first inspired the theme!  Paired with a translucent pink dinner plate, pink napkin, and opaque menu. Love ghost chairs, especially when there is so much to see int the background like the tropical ginger plants.  Vintage pink silverware <3  Flamingo earings!! Flamingos everywhere! Pink inspired donut cake…  The stationary is a mixture of watercolor and translucent papers.  I love that you can see the flamingos popping through the opaque main envelope! Donut board!
