After creating Isabella’s Princess Party, we were so excited to to design with our client Kristy again – this time for her youngest daughter Charlotte, who turns 2 this week. We decided on an “afternoon pajama party” theme, perfect for snuggly-fun toddlers.
We designed up a unique fold-down bed card, with party details underneath a “comforter” front flap.
We continued the dot theme throughout Charlotte’s thank you notes, birthday girl shirt, popcorn boxes, and food cards. On the menu? Pajama party snacks! A hot chocolate bar (complete with chocolate dipped marshmallows), popcorn, waffles, cinnamon rolls, and Kristy’s famous fruit kabobs. (Want to find out how to make the sweet pink popcorn below? Stay tuned later this week.)
The birthday girl will entertain from the comfort of a bed set up in the middle of the party room, complete with colorful blankets and pillows. We also designed a name banner, and made a snuggly coordinating pillow with Charlotte’s initial.
Kristy wanted to do a “giving favor” again for this party, and what better bedtime snack is there than milk? Kristy will be donating a week’s worth of milk to needy kids across the world in each guest’s name. We designed some cute favor tags for Kristy to attach to board books for the toddlers to take home. For Charlotte’s older girl guests, Kristy decided to donate reading and writing materials to kids, also through Samaritan’s Purse. We made some custom, personalized journals for those girls as well, to represent the writing materials donated in their name. Love it.
We put together a board book to be read at Charlotte’s party. Kristy provided some amazingly cute pictures of Charlotte, and requested that the book be all about how much Charlotte loves to smile. So fun!
