Colour your party: Mint Green

Ahhh mint green…a colour I am always tempted to include in my party colour schemes as I just love it!

It goes beautifully with many other colours – seen very often with gold as well as other pastels and would work just as well for a boy’s party with grey, or light blue. Or step out of the box as this post suggests -  “Mint to be” on the Oh It’s Perfect blog where Ania (From 2 Love Birds)  has teamed mint green with black and white!

I’ve included a gorgeous mint/gold party in this collage by Sugar Coated Mama, but also must make mention of this mint/gold Christening party styled by Thetis of Little Sooti which is a stand out celebration!

All the links are below the inspiration board. If you’re looking for something in mint green that I haven’t included, simply e-mail me at lifeslittlec@gmail.com and I’ll let you know where to find it. Also make sure you visit the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory as well in the midst of your party planning!

Minecraft party theme

Minecraft is becoming a popular theme at the moment for those kids who love this video game. For those of you who don’t know, Minecraft is a video game where players build worlds out of textured boxes.

It is still newish on the party scene so it is hard to find Minecraft partyware etc however there are lots of creative ways to theme this party and DIY ideas which you can find online (check out the “Real parties” section at the end of this blog post).

I’ve kept the selections here mainly to greens and some browns, as well as everything quite boxy to suit the theme!

Don’t forget that the talented vendors in the party directory can also assist you in creating something custom made to suit this theme so either contact someone in the Printables category or in the Handmade Decor category if you want something made (eg: invitation, garland, favour tags etc!) not to mention the talented businesses also listed who can create cookies, cakes, cake pops etc to match this theme!

 

Invitations and Printables
