I’m here to share with you a wildflower themed birthday party thrown in honor of a sweet 3 year old little girl, Alexis Maria who just so happens to be the daughter of my best friend Victoria.
Inspired by the birthday girl’s love of flowers and tea parties, my goal was to capture her vibrant personality with a whimsical and colorful celebration. Once we decided on the wildflower theme birthday party, I immediately set out to find the perfect party props and stumbled upon the Floral Teepee and Flower Love Poster Decal (no longer available online) from Land of Nod which served as the jumping off point for the color scheme and party decorations.
For the dessert table, I tapped a few of my favorite vendors to bring the wildflower party theme to life in the form of beautiful edible creations. Desserts included a rustic buttercream cake adorned with glittery fondant flowers, red velvet macarons, wildflower sugar cookies, floral crown cake pops, stacked sugar cookies with fondant flower toppers and homemade strawberry cupcakes with edible flowers.
The ivy backdrop with handmade crepe paper flowers served as the focal point of the dessert table and I incorporated several wooden vintage props to give the table varying heights. Along with my go-to milk glass cake stands, I also incorporated a few ethnically sourced floral trays from The Little Market, which complimented the theme perfectly.
The tea party table included a gold sequin table cloth with a vintage floral table runner, fresh flowers and an age appropriate place setting for each little girl. The woven rag rug, throw pillows, tassel backdrop and Love Poster were a few of the other elements that helped bring the tea party table to life.
And last but not least, the teepee play area was a hit among the girls at the party. The Floral Teepee was accessorized with plush blankets, throw pillows, colorful tassels, a jumbo balloon and a custom wooden calligraphy sign that read “you belong among the wildflowers” which couldn’t have been more fitting for the party theme. Outside of the teepee, I included custom floral crowns and ribbon wands for the girls to play with during the party.
You’d never know it from the pictures, but on the day of the party it POURED down rain, so we made a quick location switch from a backyard party to a pavilion at a local park. Thankfully we were able to still be outdoors and stay dry and the birthday girl and her guests still had every bit as much fun despite the weather!
