Real Party – Le Petite Prince

Good morning, I hope you are all well.  Last week the lovely Alex of The Inspired Occasion in Australia sent me an email filled with fabulous images from a Le Petite themed party she recently created for a clients son’s first birthday.  I will now let Alex tell you all about this party.
Our Client wanted a unique theme to celebrate her son’s first birthday and loved the french book Le Petite Prince for the challenge was set for us to research and create something unique and a talking point.  There were 50 guests in attendance and we started by designing an invitation to set the scene for the party, They looked so unique and were a perfect way to invite the guests!

 

For the party, we added in lots of elements from the book such as stars, fresh red roses, figurines and lanterns to represent space.

Starting with a colour palate of blue, yellow and hints of red we created a dessert station enjoyed by all. The stationery was designed by us and our all baked dessert items where created in-house to incorporate the colours and theme.

 
Items on the dessert station included cupcakes, sugar cookies, cake pops and jelly cups all appreciated by the big and small guests.
There was also a themed chocolate mud cake cake which stood centre on the table with a hand made sugar figurine of the character himself and was a big talking point of the table. A selection of colour coordinated candy also added to the theme of the table.
Each child took home a loot bag filled with candy, a Le Petite Prince colouring pad and crayons.
We created the space feel by adding a backdrop with stars and hanging blue and yellow lanterns. We also had a French themed entertainer to host the children with an array of activities, games and dance.
Thank you Alex for sharing a truly magical looking party.  I love the bright bold colours and how you created a such a fantastic party from a childs favourite book.  The cookies and cupcakes look delicious and I am sure the guests and birthday boy all enjoyed the fabulous birthday cake.
