Macy's First Birthday Parade - Birthday Party

I blogged the first part of my daughter’s first birthday party a few weeks ago and had every intention of posting the rest a few days later, and then life {and work} just kept getting in the way! 🤪

My (customizable) Birthday Parade Pink printables are available in Design Hero by HWTM! 💛 Click here to check them out.

So without further delay, here’s Part 2 of Macy’s Colorful Birthday Parade: The Kids Party Table and Favor Station. I went a little nuts with the labels and signage in general at her party (probably because that’s the part I love working on the most!). 💖

KIDS PARTY TABLE

For the it was all about keeping things casual and colorful! I rented an aqua blue linen for our 6-ft table and added a “table runner” which was really just folded yellow & white striped fabric from IKEA.

Place Settings

Place settings consisted of square aqua & red paper plates topped with yellow and pink napkins. I designed 4 different paper napkin rings that matched the theme, wrapped one around each napkin, and slipped a colorful plastic forks underneath.

At the top of each place setting sat a juice box and a bottle of bubbles. I designed labels for Mixed Berry and Fruit Punch flavors. All you need to do is remove the straw from the juice box, wrap the label around the box and secure with tape or glue, then stick the straw back onto the wrapped box. We used glue dots to secure the straws to the side of each box.

Yarn Pom Table Runner

6-ft tables are pretty narrow, so for the “centerpiece” of the table I just added a garland of yarn poms to the top of the table runner. We made tons of yarn poms for the party and used a 2.5″ Clover Pom Maker to churn them out quick!

More Yarn garlands hung overhead, in 2 directions above the kids table.

Party Favors

The “favor bags” actually started out empty… because the “favors” were actually sprinkled all around the party!

The kids filled the bags with sweets from the treat tables, the bubbles from their place settings, and sparkly star-shaped sunglasses and fuzzy mustache sticker photo props! I got the paper bags at Michaels and designed some favor tags (available with this printable collection) to stick on the front.

Next up… head over to Recap Part 3 to check out the indoor dessert table, parade-inspired food, & more!  And if you haven’t seen Part 1 yet, click here to go there now.
