When you are young (or always for some of us), birthday parties are usually exciting events that require countdowns and extensive party planning. With that said, it’s important to really enjoy those years when birthdays and getting older is fun, and celebrate with style! Recently, one of our customers emailed me about a darling birthday party she through for her daughter Ella’s 6th birthday. The party was Wizard of Oz-themed and complete with a Somewhere Over the Rainbow Cake and ruby red and checkered blue colors to pay tribute to the classic film we all know and love. This party was such a hit, it was even featured in the “Show Us Your Party” section of Babyology! We are personally huge fans of this extraordinary event because the centerpiece of the party was our Garden Pals Birthday Banner by Oopsy Daisy, customized especially for the lucky birthday girl!
Now, let’s talk about this cake. A big round of applause to Jessica, Ella’s Mom, for taking the time to make this awesome cake for her daughter! It’s incredible and I’m sure it tasted as good as it looks! The table of goodies was also filled with red candy apples, sugar cookies dotted with red candies by the birthday girl, apple and raspberry cordials, fresh fruit and red white and blue candies keeping with the colorful theme.
If you’re brave enough to attempt this cake, you can find the recipe here! I love all the tiny details put into this party that really made it spectacular! The tiny confetti on the table is actually small pictures of the birthday girl from Photofetti! Also on the main table are adorable striped straws and checkered cupcake cases from Hey Yo Yo. The red and white table cloth, charming printables and blue polka dot plates really bring it all together!
At the end of the party, the adorable birthday girl handed out party favors to her guests including their own personal gumball machines decorated with a creative thank you note. This Wizard of Oz birthday party was a hit among Ella and all of her friends. The small touches Mom put together are what really made it a complete success and one this smiling birthday girl will remember forever!
