where pink meets the wild thing [a birthday party]

Sunday, March 13, 2011

i've been a follower of the domestic goddess for awhile now and i admire her taste in home decor, her writing skills and i always look forward to her lists of books she's been reading which i try to take note and find time to read them too (to no avail). only recently did i realize that i forgot about her daughter audrey's birthday party last year that i meant to share with everyone. i believe it's not too late to do so, well here are the lovely details of that celebration.

the party was all the way from across the globe (Philippines, where i'm from) ~ read more about her inspirations here. it included gorgeous cameos, lovely poms, party hats and a dessert table in pink and gold! 

such an amazing cake by marta's cake in the Philippines

the stunning dessert table in the most gorgeous color palette anchored by hanging poms in varied pink tones. the gorgeous cameo silhouette banner backdrop, cake and cookies were incorprated from the invitation design. 

assorted sweet treats to satisfy each kid guests included coconut macaroons, madeleines,
meringue, petit fours and strawberry wafers to name a few.

the delicate cookies and cupcake design were darling! 

for the kids' enjoyment, there was shadow puppet playing, storytelling and mural painting. they also created masks that they used to role play during storytelling. there were games too such as pass the parcel.

party giveaways were packaged in adorable matching bags and wrappers. girls got necklaces from gingersnaps and the boys received books as party favors!

It's never too late to share something pretty.Pink and orange together--such a pretty color combination--and different. I love all the tissue paper flowers and incorporating her daughter into the design scheme silhouette. Will have to check out her blog today. Thanks.

Audrey is one lucky little lady for sure. These kid parties are off the charts these days. I can't imagine what the parties will look like in their teen years. Amazing!
