  • A Two Wild West Birthday Party Inspiration

    Rose gold silverware (sold on amazon $39.99 for set of 300) | Straws | Partyware & some on Amazon or another shop on Etsy | Cactus plates & napkins (some of the plates are currently on backorder, sorry guys I think I purchased the last ones!!) | Cactus stirrers | Tables (I spray painted these white!) | Pillows from Homegoods

     


    For the flowers, I just went to the local grocery and picked out some beautiful blooms! Cacti & Succulents I found a good selection from Lowes.

    I got my sweets from Greensleeves Village Bake Shop, a New Jersey nonprofit organization providing support services to children and adults with disabilities. Wonderful treats, supporting a great cause! I would highly recommend and use again!

    How cute is this little shirt! I just happened to walk into Zara about a week before his party and came across it – how fitting, it was simply made for him (I’m not able to find on their website but check your local store maybe you’ll find it on sale)!


     

    I got this acrylic drink dispenser from Crate & Barrel. It was a great purchase since the one I have is beautiful but it’s glass and I’m always afraid around the kids it’s going to get broken! These signs I got the inspo from PartywithLenzo and designed them myself then got them printed at Staples.

    I got these custom acrylic cake toppers from Cakewords, who was so wonderful to work with and through in a couple little extra goodies! I also got the ‘Let’s Party’ acrylic topper  & wooden hexagon name from Letterstou who works on the most creative party designs I’ve ever seen!

    The balloons I got from a variety of places, I also did a technique called ‘layering’ to get a specific color (like the opaque mint green) and searched on YouTube in order to create a balloon installation. I also got one of those machines to fill it with air (not helium).

    Giant 3′ Balloons / 16″ & Mini 5″ Balloons / Electric Balloon Pump

    I made a few extra cupcakes myself, some strawberry ones since the kids just love the extra sugar in them! To make these little swirly yellow (M’s favorite color) toppers, I used a pencil and cut thin strips of fondant and wrapped it around the pencil.

    Cactus Candles / Pastel Fondant / Foil Firework stirrers

    No party is complete without the cotton candy machine!! 🙂


    Yay! Candles

    And to make it extra fun – we got a bouncy house from Bouncin’ Blast! It was so perfect since it was a beautiful day the kids could be outside and entertained! The look on Maddox’s face says it all!

    cropped-img-maddox-mom.pngComing up with the theme of this birthday didn’t take too long, I wanted to do something with wild twos. I saw a few examples and some inspiration on instagram, pinterest and other places. When I came across ‘PartywithLenzo’s’ New years eve pastel pool party, I knew I wanted to do something with pastels, cactus’s, flowers and create a Palm springs / Arizona vibe to it (which is where the ‘west’ came in). Though a lot of people at first thought we were doing something with cowboys :). Maybe not the most boy-ish theme, but he’s two and how much longer will I really have a say!? Hope you find some inspiration from this for your next party!

    Enjoy!
