birthday party ideas

My daughter’s birthday is in June and I am already planning her class party/parties. I was brainstorming on paper but I had to make a visual layout with links to where to find products because it helped me plan better. This will be her first class party and for the past few months she’s been attending school (only 3.5 months), I feel as though she’s been coming home with a goody bag every other week because of a classmate’s birthday party. Ah, the good ol’ days: when your class celebrated your birthday with you. I suppose it stops after kindergarten due to public school policies regarding equity or such. Anyway, after creating my collages, one thing was for certain–her goody bags will be awesome!

Idea #1: Purple (her favorite color and also this year’s “Color of the Year” by Pantone)

1.  candles // 2. metallic rhye plates (small) // 3. ube leche flan cupcake // 4. lilac cake stand // 5. purple flatware // 6. galactic napkin // 7. galactic cup // 8. “For You” favor bags // 9. glitter crayons // 10. star glasses // 11. grape flavored gummy bears // 12. honeycomb mini-balls garland // 13-14. balloons: quartz purple, purple chrome
