Party planning is such fun for me and this particular party for a little girl who brings so much love, laughter and joy to her family and friends was no exception. One morning, while having a conversation in the car, she said “I have never had a Giraffe party, can you believe it?!”. Well, anyone that knows this sweet child knows her obsession with Giraffes and when you have a love for animals, how can you not give them exactly what they want.
The Party Table
The children’s table was set with colourful pinks and blues, balloons, a burlap table runner adorned with grass and giraffes to help set the feel of safari life a centrepiece made by Glitter Girlz Events and Design was so pretty painted in all her favourite colours to match our theme but also with her name on it. A very special birthday crown made by the fabulous Shawna Brockmeier Styled Events awaited the guest of honour and it featured all the colours she loved and had the most adorable little stuffed giraffe on the front she absolutely love wearing it.
The Dessert Table
The dessert table was adorned in a tulle skirt of hot pink and blue done by A Special Touch Event Planning and was filled with truly scrumptious treats that the children could not wait to enjoy. Cupcakes and Chocolate Covered Oreo’s by Kimas Konfections had adorable toppers of giraffe faces, and little pink bows on them that coordinated perfectly with the theme, Giraffe Cake pops from Sparkling Sweets Boutique could not have been any cuter, and Sweet Factory Miami made amazing giraffe cookies that looked to cute to eat.
A special two tiered animal print birthday cake was the highlight for me, it was made with love by the guest of honour’s Mom. The children as well as the adults also enjoyed the make your own s’mores bar, I don’t know anyone that does not love a good s’more.
A candy and sweet table was filled with all kinds of sugary goodness and I love how the invitation made by the amazing Swish Printables was displayed in a glamorous glittery picture frame, oh so girly, I mean who does not need a little sparkle in their life.
When everyone was finished eating the kids were allowed to get wild and crazy doing what kids like to do best; be silly all the while dancing wearing some giraffe ears and tails. For their entertainment, we had a painting station where they could get their faces painted and also for the girls to get their nails done in some lovely Jamberry nail giraffe print wraps.
The party came to a close with everyone being allowed to choose and decorate their own favour boxes each with coordinating gift tags. The boxes were filled with lots of sweet treats and some super cute lollipics with the birthday girls picture on them each box tied with giraffe print ribbon.
