This Starry Enchanted Forest Birthday Party is an absolute fairytale! Jennifer Jones of Prettiest Print Shop created this rustic but dazzling oasis for her little girl’s 2nd birthday with tons of glittery gold stars & charming woodland details. PLUS, for gifts, Kate’s parents asked that guests bring books to stock up her library! Such a cute way to keep the fairytale going & definitely what I would call a happy ending :).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Hanging gold star mobiles tied to branches + wooden branch photo frames with gold star garlands
  • DIY gold glittered signs, utensils & flower vases + gold glitter star wands & crowns for guests
  • Pink raspberry parfaits & strawberry doughnuts + star topped cinnamon rolls & pancake stack ‘cake’
  • A wooden castle ‘guestbook’ + pink stardust Pay-Doh favors

PARTY DETAILS as told by Jennifer

I’ve been in love with the pink and gold color scheme for a while and knew I wanted to use this palette for my daughter’s second birthday party. All of my ideas came together when I took her out for a photo shoot one evening. Seeing the photos of her running carefree through a wooded field in her sparkly party dress and princess crown, the idea for an enchanted forest birthday party was born!

I used plenty of gold glitter to make the party feel magical, along with a touch of pink and lots of wooden accents to create the feeling of being in an enchanted forest. My favorite aspect of this party was how the wood elements balanced out the pink and gold elements. We created cake stands from wood slices and small tree trunks, and strung gold stars from a hanging branch as a centerpiece for the dessert table. I also loved the little wood place card holders, which we used to hold labels for all of the food items.

We decided to make the party a brunch, and the star of the show was definitely the three-tiered pancake cake! Guests were wowed by this cake, and with a thin layer of buttercream and raspberry filling in between each pancake, it was just as delicious as it was beautiful!

My daughter loves reading, so in lieu of gifts, we asked each guest to bring Kate a book to help stock her library. In the invitation, I included a bookplate featuring an illustration of “Princess Kate” that guests could fill out with a special message and stick inside the book. For a fun “guestbook” idea, I ordered a wooden castle set and asked guests to each sign a block, so we could remember their presence while playing with the blocks for years to come!

For party favors, we sent all of our little guests home with a sparkly gold wand, prince or princess crown, and a jar of “enchanted stardust” (sparkly pink and gold Play-Doh).
