I am BEYOND EXCITED to share this “PARTY LIKE A PANDA” birthday with you. This theme had been in my brain for almost 15 months and I am so pleased with how it turned out.
It was pandamonium. My Charlotte has always loved pandas (who doesn’t) so I thought this would be a darling party for all of her friends. Starting with a black, white and blush color scheme, I designed a sweet little panda face that I carried throughout the decor and paper products. We had custom plates, cups, napkins and balloons made using our panda design to fit our party perfectly. I think these small extra personalized touches really define a party.
Charlotte’s dessert table was filled with yummy panda treats. A five tiered chocolate and vanilla cake with Oreo filling topped with happy birthday was the center of the table. Around it sugar cookies, powdered donuts, cake pops, panda macarons and white chocolate mousse in panda cups that I made with vinyl decals. I glued mini panda erasers to straw for our milk bottles. To make a simple backdrop, I had our patterned panda paper made into a banner and hung pom pom across it. I also used the same paper to make a runner for the dinner table.
During the party the girls ate panda pasta and panda dogs- the birthday girl’s favorite on the dinner table set with our custom panda plates and party like a panda cups. The girls entertained themselves at the panda polish station and went on a panda hunt. Once it got dark the girls settled into our little movie lounge area and watched Kung Foo Panda where they ate panda popcorn and panda puffs. To make the movie aspect a bit more unique, I wrapped the candy boxes in custom wrappers and decorated the space with panda posters and honeycomb balls.
For party favors, the girls took home their adopted panda complete with party hat and mini panda boxes that were filled with black and white candies.
