It’s off to grandmother’s house we go with this Enchanting Little Red Riding Hood Party! Wynona of party boutique Red Carousel created this amazing birthday celebration her daughter, Ivy, and there’s nothing to be afraid of here – because the Big Bad Wolf has never been SWEETER. I’m LOOKING at you, adorable cake topper! ;) All of the details on the character-inspired cake are downright incredible, actually – it’s a fairytale all on its own.
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Fabulous rag-tie bunting adding a nice burst of color color to the rustic, faux-wood backdrop
- Little Red making cameos on just about everything – from the treats to the paper details
- Fun activities for the kids including super cute apple piñata & “Grandma’s House” playhouse
- A fairytale cake starring Red, her forest friends, the Big Bad Wolf, and even her Grandmother (looking shocked!)
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Wynona…
Our little girl, Ivy, turned six and she chose to have a Little Red Riding Hood Party. It was a very fun but very hot afternoon in the backyard.
The theme was an easy one to work with — unisex and lots of creative options. I used red, green and white as the main colours to tie it all in. The dessert table was given a bit of a woodland feel with the backdrop, topiary trees and burlap ruffle tablecloth. The rag bunting was easy to make with fabric strips tied to twine.
FOOD & DESSERT
Ivy loved the chocolate cake I made, especially the peeping grandmother! Other things on the dessert table included toffee apples, little jars of candy, cupcakes with fondant toppers, chocolate and cookies. For savoury food we had a variety of things on offer including a manned hot dog stand.
We gave an assortment of things (the Little Red Riding Hood finger puppets were a hit) packaged in cute berry baskets. For entertainment I made an apple pinata filled with sweets and small toys, a jumping castle, tattoos, face painting, pass the parcel (prizes included Little Red Riding Hood books), balloon sculpting and a game where my husband dressed up as the Big Bad Wolf.
