#1 – Custom Panda Party Supplies

Starting with a black, white and blush color scheme, I designed a sweet little panda face that I carried throughout the decor and paper products. We had custom plates, cups, napkins and balloons made using our panda design to fit our party perfectly. I think these small extra personalized touches really define a party!

The plates and cups are available in my Zazzle shop, and the napkins and balloons can be ordered through my Etsy shop.

#2 – DIY Panda Party Straws

I hot-glued mini panda erasers to straws for our milk bottles. The straw flags are part of my Panda Party Printable Kit.

#3 – Panda Macaron Cookies

The adorable panda macaroons were from Sweet and Saucy, but you could also make these using an edible marker and fondant ears.

It was pandamonium. When my daughter turned ten, she wanted to “party like a panda”, her favorite animal.

Charlotte’s dessert table was filled with yummy panda treats. A five tiered chocolate and vanilla cake with Oreo filling topped with happy birthday was the center of the table. Around it sugar cookies, powdered donuts, cake pops, panda macarons and white chocolate mousse in panda cups that I made with vinyl decals and my Silhouette machine.

To make a simple backdrop, I had our patterned panda paper made into a banner and hung pom pom across it. I also used the same paper to make a runner for the dinner table.

During the party, party guests ate panda pasta and panda dogs – the birthday girl’s favorite – on a dinner table set with our custom panda plates and party like a panda cups.

The girls entertained themselves at the panda polish station and went on a panda hunt.

Once it got dark, everyone settled into our little movie lounge area and watched Kung Foo Panda, where they ate panda popcorn and panda puffs. To make the movie aspect a bit more unique, I wrapped the candy boxes in custom wrappers and decorated the space with panda posters and honeycomb balls.
