Kids Thanksgiving Party

Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving with lots of kids or just want to celebrate with a fun Kids Thanksgiving Party, this adorable party will have you gobbling for more!
Kids love crafts and this party kicked off with each guest wearing a whimsical apron from Pottery Barn Kids and making a turkey or feather hat for their big Thanksgiving feast! Materials for the craft were neatly displayed in small square crates with personalized Thanksgiving gift stickers from Tiny Prints, which guests later used for leftovers!
Instead of telling the kids about the Thanksgiving why not read a kids book about the first Thanksgiving and have them share what they’re thankful for on craft paper!
Often times the kids table at holiday gatherings is an afterthought. However, this kids table was anything but boring with the whimsical turkey table linen, dinnerware, chair backers, and stuffed turkey from Pottery Barn Kids, personalized Bon Appetite napkins, and centerpiece of seasonal squash, pumpkins, and cotton.
Kids enjoyed feasting on pumpkin chocolate mousse bites, pumpkin chocolate chip blondes, pumpkin pita chips and hummus, pumpkin space caramel corn with roasted pumpkin seeds and walnuts, and mini apple pies!
Every party should have a signature drink, even a kid’s party! Kids enjoyed apple cider from one of the local farms in Charlotte.
Gobble gobble gobble until you wobble!

Halloween Costume Hayride Party

This Halloween Costume Hayride Party has it all from the décor, the costumes, and the spooky fun treats!
The Halloween party kicked off at The Hunter Farm with picking pumpkins and taking a costume hayride! The kids loved being silly and picking out their favorite pumpkin to decorate. We even found a cute baby elephant in the pumpkin patch!
After running around the pumpkin patch the kids were ready for some fresh apple cider and spooky treats which included witches broom sticks (Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and pretzel sticks) hat cookies, monster candy apples, cotton candy cobwebs, graveyard cake with gummy worms, skeleton bones (yogurt covered pretzels) and terrifying tortilla chips in shapes of ghosts, pumpkins, and bats.
The best part was watching the kids fill up their plates and be surprised by the animated witch kicking legs in the caldron!
Everyone filled up a treat bag with personalized stickers from the hosts, Sofia and Charlotte, with candy and a Halloween Peez dispenser.
DIY’s included: Backdrop, Monster Candy Apples, Witches broom sticks, witch hat cookies, and spooky eye balls

Mermaid Birthday Bash

Splish Splash It’s a Mermaid Birthday Bash! Who doesn’t love mermaids and splashing around on the beach?
The venue was Lake Norman, which provided a beautiful backdrop, and plenty of fun in the sand and water! Guests were greeted with a decorated teepee with garland, a magical bubble station, custom pillows from Shutterfly, colorful lanterns from Pottery Barn Kids, a personalized canvas mermaid sign made at Anders Ruff Workshop and mini pink flamingos from Via Blossom that lead them down to the beach.
Starfish wishes and mermaid kisses! Swimmable mermaid outfits by Mertailor were waiting by the beach for each of the guests. The little mermaids took a break from swimming to enjoy lunch at the magical under the sea kids table and sweet treats from the beautiful dessert table!
This kids table had it all from a beautiful blue and white tie dye table linen, tassel table runner, Best Day Ever plates and colorful tumblers from Pottery Barn Kids. Mix and match china isn’t just for adults! We mixed Pottery Barn Kids Best Day Ever Plates with Meri Meri foil mermaid plates and napkins. These custom lucite and agate stone napkin rings by Set in Stone, added the finishing touch of this under the sea tablescape! Kids lunch included chicken nuggets from Chick Fil-A, gold fish, and watermelon starfish!
However, the dessert table stole the show with the beautiful custom backdrop and sweet treats! The commissioned mermaid painting from Art House Charlotte, by artist Lauren Reddick, is even more stunning in person and was the focal point of the backdrop with custom DIY balloon garland, from One Stylish Party, that looked like bubbles of the sea! One of my favorite party décor items that also doubles as home décor is the turquoise octopus chandelier from Chandelier By NK, which adds a whimsical feel to the party!
The main dessert is this one of kind mermaid cake from Edible Art Charlotte, combining two popular styles of waves at the bottom and mermaid scales at the top in ombre, with a mermaid and seahorses on the side. Kids also enjoyed ombre almond pound cake shooters with mermaid tails, chocolate covered pearls, and custom mermaid tail, fish, seahorse, and sea shell cookies from Kessa Cakes!
In addition to swimming, playing in the sand, and a bubble station there was a mermaid kit station, where each guest had the opportunity to design their own mermaid from precut mermaid tails, hair, and accessories.
All guests received mermaid starfish sunglasses and mermaid bracelets for party favors, which was in addition to bubbles and a mermaid tail cookie to take home.

Be Our Guest Garden Party

Be Our Guest Be Our Guest Your Presence is Our Request! When the birthday girl requested a Belle party for her 4th Birthday, which coordinated with the live Beauty and The Beast movie release later this month, Sarah of Sarah Sofia Productions knew she’d dream up the most magical Be Our Guest Party for this little princess!
Belle aka the birthday girl invited all her princess friends to join her for the royal garden party in the enchanted forest, which included Rapunzel, Elsa, Anna, and Cinderella to name a few.
Each princess received this vintage modern invitation custom designed by Bird’s Party with pastel watercolor silhouette of Belle and the Beast with gold leaf trim.
Upon arrival each princess was greeted with the royal treatment from makeup to nails in a kid’s beauty salon!
Once the princesses finished beautifying themselves they were escorted to the enchanted forest where a beautiful vintage modern garden party awaited their arrival!
While everyone loves the traditional colors of the original Beauty and The Beast, Sarah Sofia Productions is always thinking out of the box and went with the birthday girl’s request for pink and purple with pops of gold. Using the new Belle dress from the upcoming live movie as inspiration Sarah Sofia Productions designed this sophisticated garden party in the enchanted forest with whimsical elements such as custom signs with popular quotes and figurine characters from the movie.
Each place setting was decorated with a pink rose, jeweled crown, and party hat.  To create this vintage modern Be Our Guest Party Sarah mixed Crated Fuchsia and Gold Party Collection with pink and gold linens and chinaware from Classic Party Rentals.
To create a modern and whimsical feel for the table design Sarah used honeycomb tissue paper balls from Oriental Trading and a wooden crate that she painted for the floral centerpiece she designed using tulips, hyacinth, and roses.
Princesses dinned on tea cup and rose sugar cookies, rose cupcakes, petit fours, almond flavor pink pound cake with caramel drip and sparkling pink lemonade!
To create the custom backdrop Sarah used Be Our Guest custom sign from Bird’s Party, custom handmade paper flowers from Blossom Papers and hot pink modern acrylic chandelier from Chandelier By NK.
Once the princesses finished dinning on sweet treats they enjoyed bouncing around in the princess castle bounce house and running around in the enchanted forest!
In addition to jeweled crowns and party hats, each princess was given a gold and white striped party favor bag with a princess necklace and edible princess bracelet from Oriental Trading.
