Salt Lake City, UT
Stella wanted a POLKA DOT theme. Once I found an outfit, I based the color palette around it and planned the invite, food, cake, decor and favors.
FOOD: Anything round I could find. Melons cut in round shapes and stacked large to small. Tomatoes, Carrots, Cucumbers, Grapes, Blueberries in round clear containers.
CAKE: I ordered Cake Pops for the kids and made a three layer vanilla cake with blue frosting with tissue puff skewers on top, a circle punched number four, and circle sprinkles for the bottom edge.
DECOR: I made a wall of balloons to create a small background of color, circle danglers to hang with washi tape from the ceiling, a tassel with ribbon, fabric and tissue paper for the 36" balloon, and simple yellow tulips. Bamboo forks with colorful plates, mini milk bottles and dot straws all in a large round yellow tin for the beverage. I made some yarn pom pom garlands and tissue pom poms for decor around the house.
PARTY FAVORS: Craft bags filled with dot candy, a dumdum wrapped in dot fabric and tied with twine, some blue foil wrapped chocolate balls and some purple sixlets. Sealed with some washi tape and a circle punched "thanks for coming" sticker.
My daughter really wanted to paint at her party. She loves crafts so I got some wood letters, the first letter for each child invited. I spray painted them white and got a variety of colors from the color palette and circle sponge applicators and let them create their own letter art. Of course, aprons were a must ;)
