Out of the Box: Fresh, Fun, & SIMPLE Children's Birthday Parties & Showers Part One. . .

You know, I am all about fancy parties and lavish decorating, but when it comes to throwing a birthday party for my own little tyke, I like to keep it somewhat simple.  I mean, realistically we are all busy moms & dads without a TON of extra time to go wedding style fab for a birthday party . . . but I have the strong belief that you don't need to go over the top to go fabulous.  It is, in fact, all in the details.

So first & foremost, let's take a look at a fun new 'Out of the Box' children's birthday party & baby shower series from Juneberry Lane that will pop up from time to time in the weeks ahead!  And then stay tuned for a party design in our Juneberry Etsy Shop to go along with the theme:)

First up, a unique & colorful little shindig based on the favorite children's book 'Harold & the Purple Crayon' by Crockett Johnson Take a look at a bit of inspiration . . .


The most darling invitations . . .


And a charming celebration from Duet Letterpress . . .








Now one thing I am loving about this party theme is that you could make the simplest little backdrop out of white butcher paper and of course, a purple crayon.  Not quite as large as this one below (from a dance performance in Chicago by Hubbard Street 2 at the Harris Theatre) but you get the idea . . .

How much fun is that?  I can't wait to bring you even more unique ideas to inspire you along the way!  Happy Wednesday!! Photobucket
