Best Kids Parties: Dots

My Party

Name: Parker (3)
Location: Baltimore, Maryland

We'd hoped to have Parker's third birthday outside at a neighborhood park, but when we learned a festival (and beer garden!) would be taking over the space for the weekend, we quickly made other plans.

Eight little friends and accompanying parents came to our Fells Point row house for a dot-themed afternoon party with homemade vegan cupcakes and carrot cake, tissue poms, champagne punch for the adults and '80s throwback sunglasses.

With the oldest kiddo topping out at age 4, we went for unstructured activities - play foam and a sticker wall (inspired by this great Apartment Therapy kids party). Mostly we kept it simple and focused on keeping our adult friends as happy as their children!

Lovely - thanks Tricia!
