A little girl’s second birthday should be just as fun and fabulous as she is! Well, Adair of Dairing Events, did just that for her daughter with this colorful citrus birthday party. And it couldn’t be cuter! From invites that read “Tutti Frutti our little cutie is turning two!” to a game of Watermelon burst using water balloons, who wouldn’t have fun at this party? Scroll on for Adair’s favorite parts and all the cute photos that captured them.
When it came time to start planning the birthday party for our Little Boo, I couldn’t imagine anything but a summery citrus inspired bash! It really all started when Olivia Grace Paperie showed me her inspiration for the invitations; individual white boxes, filled with crinkle paper, the invite of course, and a cello-wrapped pair of fruit slice candies! From there, every detail fell right into place.
Because it was a party for the kiddos, it was important to create little vignettes and moments for them to enjoy. We set up a fruit stamping station, where each guest could pick out their own canvas tote, stamp it with sliced fruit in different color paints, and then hang it up to dry. There was an organic lemonade stand with sunglasses, because it was a bright and sunny August day and a “watermelon burst” balloon popping game!
My two favorite elements, though, were the statement table decorated with honeycomb fruit, party hats, and overhead a tassel adorned chandelier. The second was the dessert table! AlleyCakes designed the best fruit explosion cake, fresh fruit cupcakes, and even watermelon shaped rice krispie treats. It was also a treat to work with Maddy D’s Sweets and have her create the cake topper cookie as well as the hand painted fruit sugar cookies!
