Kid's Party Prep: A Winter Wonderland

Today we are excited to bring you an adorable Winter Wonderland-themed children's party as we finish off our Kid's Party Prep series! We love that this frosty blue and white color scheme is gender neutral, but the polar bears and the wintry forest we have incorporated here seems perfect for a little boy's celebration. Our Winter Wonderland Collection by Dixie artist Rachel Rogers provided the artistic direction for the decor, sweets, and favor boxes for these birthday festivities.

Our talented local friends at Party Pick-Up did an outstanding job helping us pull all of the arctic party elements together. The striped straws, the forest green plates, the wooden cutlery, and the snowy woodland-themed favor boxes filled with play polar bears and sweet treats are sure to be a hit with any little guy!

It's going to be hard to keep those with a sweet tooth away from the snack table at this party, which is set with a delectable spread of macaroons, pillowy-white meringues, and chocolate candies! Courtney Wright from Savor Style has such a gift for pulling together the most beautiful and tasty party trays!

Last but not least, is any party truly complete without a dozen or so beautifully iced sugar cookies?! These adorable polar bear and snowflake cookies are the product of Hey Kat Bakes' creative baking hands.

Maybe this Winter Wonderland-themed party will herald in the snowflakes for a white Christmas this year! Click here to shop the Collection that inspired this party, and you can read the other posts in our Kid's Party Prep holiday series here.

Kid's Party Prep: A Nutcracker Party

We are continuing our series of holiday kid-themed parties with a Nutcracker party perfectly suited for any little girl with Clara or Sugar Plum Fairy aspirations! The adorable Nutcracker Toile Collection created by talented Dixie artist Riley Sheehey was our inspiration for this party. This toile artwork truly has it all.... from the pointe shoes, to the Nutcracker characters, to Christmas ornaments and candies, the invitation opens the door for so many ways to celebrate in a whimsical "Kingdom of Sweets" fashion!

The team at Party Pick-Up did an incredible job helping us pull all of the party elements together! They coordinated the disposable paper products, festive straws, and adorable favor boxes that feature a Shop Dear Emmaline hair bow embroidered with a nutcracker! (Continue scrolling for a close-up) 

We were blown away by Hey Kat Bakes' cookie designs! The pointe shoes and the tutus perfectly mirror Riley's delicate artwork on the invitation.

Courtney Wright from Savor Style deserves a standing ovation for the ballerina-pink candy board of mints, macaroons and meringues that she created for our party!

Now who's ready to set a date and have a Nutcracker party with us?! Click here to shop the beautiful Nutcracker Toile Collection that inspired it all.

Kid's Party Prep: A Gingerbread Decorating Party

'Tis almost the season for winter break, snowflake themed birthday parties, cookie decorating soirées, and so much more! We know it's about time for you to start planning those events you have up your sleeves, but where oh where to begin? To provide a little inspiration, we thought it would be fun to select a few festive designs from our 2019 Holiday Collection and show you how we would style up a party to match! We teamed up with some of our favorite local businesses to bring you three different kid themed party ideas, the first one being this sugar-packed Gingerbread Cookie Party!

Of course we started with the invitation, selecting Dixie artist Lucy Young's Gingerbread Village Suite to set the stage for our party. Shop that full collection by clicking here! And no gingerbread party is complete without cookies! Hey Kat Bakes delivered with these absolutely picture-perfect cookies inspired by Lucy's artwork.

Next, on the list, food!  We contacted Courtney from Savor Style. She concocted this grazing board of sweet confections that, per-usual, was both eye catching and totally, mouth-watering delicious.

Finally, our girls at Party Pick-Up pulled it all together with a perfect array of gingerbread inspired plates, candy cane napkins, and goodie boxes filled with thematic treasures for all of the party goers to take home and enjoy. We especially loved the inclusion of that Gunner & Lux necklace kit!
