Little man party theme

A little man theme has become a popular party theme lately for young boys, and especially 1st birthdays. This theme focuses heavily on the image of a mustache however often also incorporates bow-ties or ties as well.

It is an easy party to style through the use of printables and attaching mustaches to items such as candy jars, balloons, cups, favour bags etc

I’ve based the selections in this blog post around black/white as well as some chevron items which is often incorporated into this theme to give it a modern feel. You can find more chevron finds in this blog post.

However I don’t think this theme should only be styled around black/white – the invitation/printable section of this blog post will give you some ideas for colour schemes for this theme.

You can also find my pinterest board for this theme here with more ideas.

Vintage Tricycle Theme

I thought it was time to do a boys theme and one theme which I really love is that of a vintage tricycle inspired by the printables from Style Me Gorgeous. So I’ve decided to do this post on a tricycle or bicycle theme – a great theme if you want to do a classic traditional theme for a boy =)

You could combine this theme with another item as well. For example on the Style Me Gorgeous printables they are combined with a kite. Other printables combine a tricycle with other vintage toys. I also saw a vintage tricycle and ice cream party. So really anything could work and the vintage feel could tie it together.

I’ve based most of my selections on blues and brown/cream tones and vintage items however I know all of you fab blog readers of mine could make any colour work well =)

Invitations/Printables

These are the gorgeous printables which originally inspired this post! I love the colour scheme and the classic look:

If you want to inject some red into your colour scheme, here is another lovely set of printables:

A gingham tablecloth could work in really well for this theme:

Or you could use this jute material for a vintage feel tablecloth:
