Hands down, kid’s parties are my favorite celebrations to design. So when my nieces and nephew’s birthdays are coming up, I always want to put my spin on the theme they have in mind. When my adorable nephew, Collin told me he wanted “Lego” party, the look on my eyes said it all, because I was thinking of all the primary colors that comes along with Legos. The first step to put A golden arrow spin was to come up with the a color scheme; settled on black, white, sage. This color palette is super modern but still perfect for a boy’s 9th birthday.
From there we started building all the elements to create the most epic celebration for my little man! I enlisted my the favorite calligrapher and graphic designer friend @pirouettepapercompany to create this mud cloth inspired backdrop. This pattern is simple but made a statement. Next up paper goods, these @ohhappyday grid plates have been on my list to use but was waiting for the perfect event to use them! Balanced out this setup with a solid black napkin and @sophisiplate black and white forks. We searched high and low for a modern sage green cup to tie into tabletop setup, no luck. So my sister, Summer the DIY queen created these rad cups. To finish off the design, I had my talented laser cut friend @creativeamme to make these awesome Lego face place cards and stir-sticks. These elements tied the tabletop together and the kid’s got to take them home as a keepsake. For the finishing touches I sourced Legos and décor from Amazon, these website has been a lifesaver during the pandemic. Another DIY was needed to create these custom sage green Legos. Spraying painting these little guys wasn’t the easiest task, however the final product was a wow! These sage pieces made me not scared of Legos colors no longer. A birthday wouldn’t be a birthday without a jaw dropping cake right?!? The brilliant team at @sweetnsaucyshop made these picture-perfect desserts, which are just as much yummy as pretty. My nephew selected this Lego face which totally expresses his funny side and the way he looks at his Aunties when we up to one of our fun pranks. My family is obsessed with @pacificorganicpops and her mini cart is definitely the way to go for small gatherings. We love that they use fresh organic ingredients, my favorite flavor is Pineapple Chili Lime. Final touches were our balloon installations on pop cart and backdrop. The sage balloons were a custom color we created, loved how they paired up with the colors. Much love to @nolafontanezphotography for capturing all the detail and my handsome boy. We will treasure this celebration for many years!
