i’m excited to finally share with you the fox inspired party that i threw for my son thomas’ first birthday!
i decided that i wanted to do a brunch for the party! there are so many fun options food wise, and it was fun to put together the menu!
i served milk, chocolate milk, and sparkling clementine juice for the drinks.
i bought some mini cinnamon rolls from costco, and put them on tall cookie pop sticks. i also made a fun donut hole tree. i hung the donut holes on a styrofoam cone painted with chocolate. they are attached with toothpicks.
my favorite part about the yogurt parfaits was using japanese masking tape to hold on the darling little spoons i found at ikea.
fresh fruit with whipped cream fruit dip.
i thought about making a cake, but ran out of time. since it was a brunch, i thought it would be appropriate to serve a “donut cake” using my favorite chocolate cake donuts from dunford bakeries. i added some fun flags using skewers in the top, and i cut the flags with die cuts from lifestyle crafts.
and, of course there was a candy table.
it was fun to gather candies with the colors of the party. i found most of the candy in the bulk bins at winco, and at zurchers party store.
i always end up getting too much candy, but the kids love it, of course!
i played around with the decor using colors from the theme. i played around with crepe paper fringe, and this is what i came up with! i loved the out come! basically i used jordan’s paper fringe tutorial, then twisted the fringe stripes and taped them to a embroider hoop and hung them from fishing wire.
(update: I recently did a step by step tutorial on how i made them, click here)
after figuring out how to make them, they didn’t take long to make three of them! and, they really made the table pop!
we also taped balloons along the banister using the party colors.
this fox print by olive lake was the inspiration behind the party! so, i displayed it on the entry table along with some flowers and the goodie bags.
i found the cutest little flowers in pots at harmons, a local grocery store. the orange color was perfect for the party, and so darn cute! the succulents and woven pot are from ikea.
and, the goodie bag table! [i’ll be sharing more about the goodie bags soon!]
the birthday boy! i can’t believe he’s one!
me and my sweet youngest child.
we just love our little thomas, and had such a great time celebrating his birthday!
