Superkid's seventh birthday is later in October. We're having a party for her friends early in the month, so that Superkid's birthday won't be overshadowed by her daddy's extensive Halloween decor (among other scheduling issues, too).
During the summer, I saw the posts Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy did on her daughter's Teeny Tiny birthday party, and I immediately knew this would be the perfect theme for Sariah's party. I did a Google search on "tiny party" and found additional inspiration here and here and here. So, our party theme obviously isn't original, but I've had fun personalizing it for Sariah's enjoyment and adding a few touches of fall.
I've been using these colorful papers to make some of the decorations and party items.
I'll be making party hats using this template I found and shrunk down to the tiny scale I wanted.
I've been cutting out lots of little triangles, to make teeny-tiny pennant banners to use instead of streamers.
Pretty paper is also being used to cover little water bottles.
just for this blog post...I feel silly saying it. What the guests received actually looked more like this before they went into the envelopes.
I had some fun coming up with the wording for the invitation. (We must use our English degree somehow, mustn't we?)
The invitation reads:
Once there was an itty-bitty baby,
Who grew into a pretty little lady.
We know she can't stay small forever,
She just keeps growing! However...
....We thought it might be fun to celebrate
Superkid sprouting from small to great
At a little bitty,
(Time, address, RSVP, etc.)
We'll enjoy tiny snacks, tiny treats,
and have a tiny bit of fun
as we celebrate all things tiny
Superkid's 7th Birthday.
Now that the invitations are out, I'm finishing the decorations, and gathering the supplies we'll need for games and fun. Besides the tiny pennant banners, we'll make things festive with tiny balloons.
In the meantime, if anyone has seen some great ideas for cute cupcakes (possibly with a fall vibe?), please, please post a comment with a link. It can't be too complicated, but I'd love to have something fun for the party since I'm not planning on having a big cake at this one. Thanks!
