Best Kids Parties: Scandinavian Fox

My Party

Name: Zoe, 3
Location: Melbourne, Australia

This party was held for my 3 year old daughter Zoe and truly reflects her personaily and style - very quirky, bold colours and lots of geometric shapes. 

The party venue was Petit Atelier which is a kids art workshop and retail store in Prahran, Melbourne. The invitations and stationary were created by Ham and Pea and she nailed my concept completely. 

The party area was kept simple with the kids table set up having only a black and white striped table runner, and some colour blocks in the centre. Hanging we had some handmade geometric shaped paper garlands which I love! Each child also had their own lunch box at their setting with a handmade fox mask which they absolutely loved! Kids ate a sandwich, a muesli bar, muffin, chips and a juice. 

The children each painted a canvas with a cut out of the fox. They loved making these and even more so painting it! Once they all finished their works of art we had story time, reading "Hattie and the Fox".

On the dessert table were the amazing cake, cupcakes, and cookies lovingly created by Helen of Kiss My Cakes. She worked wonders on that cake and it is absolutely one of my favourites so far. I am loving geometrics and block colours, lots of stripes at the moment and I wanted this to come out in this party, as it reflects the nordic style of contemporary design. 

My favourite though, was the designed backdrop by Ham and Pea. I gave Li-Ann free reign with this and she knows my style completely so I trusted her to come up with something that would amaze and it certainly did. 

Party favors given to the kids were muslin bags with the fox logo ironed on. I chose not to have "thank you" or any names on these as I wanted the kids to be able to re-use them later on. Inside the bags were some novelty toys, some lollies and stamps.
