Bright & Cheery Flirty Birdie Forest Party

brightly colored outdoor forest bird party

Tweet Tweet! A little bird told me about this AMAZING Flirty Birdie Forest Party by Angela DiVincenti of Angela Marie Events, and I am just swooning. The bright colors really pop against the natural scenery, from bright patterned printables and candies, to the cupcakes and table runner. Being outdoors, Angela made sure to include plenty of natural touches as well, like burlap, wood and moss. I just love how well everything comes together. 

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Bird & flower cookies on sticks, cleverly displayed in watering cans
– Candy-filled chocolate & shredded wheat bird’s nests + gumball necklaces for each guest
– Colorful painted twig “bird’s nest” plate chargers
– Framed patterned fabrics make a pretty backdrop for the forest floor photo booth
– Paint your own birdhouse activity + bubbles and bumble bee bath fizz party favors

Creative Grand Slam Baseball Birthday Party

This Baseball Birthday Party is definitely a home run! Lindsay Longacre of LVL Events knocked it out of the park for little Austin, who turned 2. I love the look on his face when he’s at bat at the air-powered tee ball — now there’s a heavy hitter in the making! Alongside his baby brother in the hand painted photo stand-in, these boys look ready for the big leagues! Well, maybe in a couple years, with Mom’s approval of course. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Vintage food carts + stadium inspired food like nachos, churros and french fries
  • Chocolate covered pretzel baseball bats, baseball truffles, baseball cake pops, & rice krispie treat jerseys!
  • Cool grass table runner loaded with cracker jacks and baseball gloves
