How to Throw a Chic Kids' Party

There is no formula to throwing an incredibly chic party for your little ones' special day. I do have a few little tricks that are sure to make your childrens' party the most chic on the block!
Don't be tempted to buy the character plates & cups if you are having a character inspired party. More often than not, this can make the party, despite your best efforts, look cheap & ordinary.
Use little props to dress up the tables & space. Is your angel having a Cinderella inspired party? Place little pumpkins & large spools of thread on the dessert table & buffet.
Decorate tables using Threes. Three cake plates or three large centerpieces on a banquet tables is more visually appealing & creates more balance than two or four (that's a little interior designers' tip).
Have at least one framed picture of the birthday boy or girl displayed proudly for all the guests to see. You can even step it up & do a photo banner with pictures from each month.
Think of the event space as a triangle. The two focal points should be parallel on the sides of the space & the main focal point should be the first thing you see, directly in front of you. The main focal point is typically the dessert table.
Pay special attention to the menu. Go beyond ordering pizza & a sheet cake. Get creative with miniature pizzas & cake pops.
Be sure to add height to your tables. An easy way to add height is so stack cake plates, or stack things on gift-wrapped boxes. Height is much more visually appealing.
Backdrops behind a focal point can really take your party to the next level. Hang table cloths or wrapping paper on the wall, behind the dessert table or buffet & your childs' party just became beyond chic!
Paper products tie it all together. Birthday banners, cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, straw wrappers, etc. really tie the entire event together & give it a cohesive feel. There are many shops on that do customized party packages. Click HERE & browse some pre-made themes or send a message for a customized party with a theme of your choice.
I hope this helps! Have fun; your little birthday boy or girl is sure to!
