Real Parties: Nick's Sing-a-Long

Here are pictures from Nicklaus sing-a-long party! A good friend of mine, who teaches preschool choir and music classes, came over and led the kids in silly songs and games.
The door sign that greeted Nick's party guests. The party colors were navy and kelly green which I carried throughout the party along with his monogram.

Snack boxes for the kids upon arrival!


My sweet mom sewed the table runner for the two tables!





I put monogram stickers on all of the white plates to give the simple paper good some style.

Part of the snacks were kelly green macarons and Smashies (squeezable applesauce)...and of course the applesauce packaging matched the colors!!

Assorted sandwiches wrapped in coordinating paper.



For the cupcake display, I stacked white boxes to create a stand.




Microphones for the kids!


My friend, Kara, entertaining the kids!

The birthday boy loving parachute time!

My other little man, Conrad, who was a bit overwhelmed.

Nicklaus enjoying his macaron. The kids loved this sweet treat which pleasantly surprised me.

* Invitation, door sign, birthday boy chair sign, plate stickers, water bottle labels, "3" stickers, sandwich wraps & favor tags were all designed by my friend, Hayley Hardcastle.
* Navy table linens came from Distinctive Details.
* Tables and kid chairs were rented from A Finer Event.
* I ordered the cupcakes from Etsy via Orange1 who was WONDERFUL to work with! She has so many great papers to choose from.
* Cupcakes and flowers came from from Central Market.
* Maison Burdisso made the kelly green macarons. They were DELICIOUS and she has so many colors to work with!
