I was thinking of a storybook theme or a care bears theme for her 3rd birthday as she was showing interest in both of those. However recently she has become obsessed with being a ballerina and wearing a tutu every.single.day.
So plans have changed to a ballerina party. This is such a popular theme for little girls and I had wanted to do something a little different, but my tutu wearing daughter would love nothing more than this party theme – so a ballerina party it is (which has grown on me now and I’m enjoying planning it!).
However I was trying to think of a slightly different take on it and was going to make it a “tulle and tassels” theme.
However my daughter really has no idea what tassels are (is she really my child?) but is loving bows! Something to do with a bow song by the new Wiggles. So now I’m thinking of a Ballerina and bows party.
Anyways you get the drift. Either way it will be a ballerina party.
In the end I’m trying to follow her lead when it comes to a party theme and what I think she would be excited to see at her party.
I need to decide on a colour scheme and this image of a coral, peach and blush dessert table is inspiring me at the moment:
We’ve just finished celebrating Naomi’s 1st birthday and I really was not going to start planning her 2nd birthday for a while now. However this Dreaming Collection from Kikki.K has really inspired me
I am loving rainbows, clouds and balloons right now. They remind me of sunny and carefree days in childhood. Who knows what this theme would be called but I am just loving the idea of planning a party based around whimsical images like these.
I am loving the colour combination as well of mint, orange and fuschia:
Is it weird to get a party theme inspiration from stationery?
Well I also felt inspired for this theme when I saw this cute “Milky” t-shirt with rainbows and clouds being sold at Little Red Chick in Sydney:

I also saw this invitation the other day which caught my eye from Penny Lane Studio and also got me thinking that something with clouds and balloons would be really cute:

I will wait and see as Naomi gets a bit older if there is any particular theme based around her interests or personality. In the end she is the ultimate inspiration for her own birthday party theme.
However at 2 yrs old the theme could really be anything and I figure what little child doesn’t like clouds, balloons and rainbows?
It reminds me of this gorgeous “WISH” party by Frog Prince Paperie (click the image below to see more). Whimsical and magical!

So that is where I’m at with Naomi’s 2nd birthday which by the way is 11 months away so I am way ahead of myself here!
Sometimes I find if I start planning things in detail too early I get ‘over’ the theme before the birthday party even arrives. But these are just some of the images which are inspiring me at the moment.
How have your children’s party themes evolved over the year?
How many times do your children change their mind before their birthday? Do you have a cut-off date before the party that the theme can not be changed?
