Kokeshi Doll Theme - Lifes Little Celebration

Kokeshi Doll Theme

I’ve seen some really cute Kokeshi doll parties lately which inspired this blog post! It is such a unique party theme to plan for incorporating cherry blossoms, florals, paper fans and parasols. I enjoyed finding the different items to bring this blog post together! I hope you enjoy it

As always don’t forget to visit the children’s party directory for all the vendors you need when planning your children’s celebrations!
