Party Planning

I can't believe another year has passed and I'm going to have a sassy 3 year old in less than 2 months. With that, comes party planning for her big day. She requested a princess party, so I used my swift convincing skills and now she's excited as ever for her "Under the Sea" party! I just couldn't swing the thought of a full on princess themed party. Plus, I'm sure the boys in the neighborhood will thank me later! 

Here's what I'm thinking for her big day! 

I'm pretty sure this is the invitation I've settled on.  A photo of my sweet girl is a requirement! How fun to look back in 20 years at all her birthday invitations? 

Little miss has already approved a cake similar to this one! 

How darling are these mini Mason jar sippers from Anthropologie?!

Not everything has to be sugary and sweet! Love the idea of a healthy treat for the littles in cute striped cups. 

What kiddo doesn't love balloons? They can double as decor and leave with the kiddos attached to the party favors! 

And speaking of party favors, beach buckets are great for stuffing surprises in side!

Cute printables are a must! 

So many cute ideas I've found! Her 3rd birthday is sure to be a blast!


  1. How cute! I love your inspiration and I am sure it will turn out great!

  2. Happy Birthday hope your daughter has a great day. She looks a real cutie pie. Having done so many parties for my daughter now 20 nearly 21(gosh where did the time go)I know how you sweat over the details. we have had so many different themes in the past, pirates, Halloween (well her birthday is in July so everyone's away so she had her parties when the children went back to school when she was younger)and in recent years we have had genteel garden parties with fancy china cup cakes, etc.

    When she was 18 (that's sort of taken over from 21st in UK)she had a Mad Hatters tea party and everyone came in fancy dress. Last year 20 we had a ladies only garden party all fancy dresses etc and a fab rainbow cake.

    Hope you Under the sea party goes well and good luck with future parties

  3. Aww so fun. Love these ideas. Looking forward to seeing what all you come up with! What a lucky little girl. :)
