There has been a recent trend in kids party themes based around a Little Indian theme – or similar – with an aztec/tribal feel, teepee’s, dream catchers etc.
It’s one of those unique themes that as far as colour schemes go – anything goes! However I’ve included lots of partyware to go with a rustic colour palette as that can mix in with any other colours you’ve chosen for this theme. I’ve also attached a few chevron items which would work in with the arrow shape.
The vendors in the Handmade decor category on the Directory are perfect to use for a theme like this where you can’t find items in regular party stores. You can find people to create a custom cake topper for you, cupcake toppers, garlands – anything really! Printables are also fabulous to use for this theme as you can purchase your printable decorations all in one spot.
Printables & Invitations
Since most of these printables are custom designed, if you need a different colour scheme they can easily be changed for you and many are available in “boy” and “girl” printable sets:
