Kara's Party Ideas 7th Birthday Secret Garden Party - Garden Party Ideas |

This precious SECRET GARDEN 7TH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Kara Abrahamsen of Lillian Hope Designs. Isn’t it just lovely?

Kara said– “This party was styled for my daughter Lilly’s 7th birthday! She was madly in love with the book ‘SECRET GARDEN’ and had this great idea to have a Secret Garden Party! I of course jumped on this idea…I love shabby chic and vintage style parties and was so excited to start styling one for her 7th birthday.

It took me a while to figure out what direction I wanted to go…then I found a fantastic paper pack on Etsy from HelloLoveToo and I fell in love with the print!

In the invitations we sent out plastic glitter keys so that the girls could unlock the magical garden gate as they entered into the secret garden. As the guest arrived they had many {backyard garden games} they could walk around and play as they wished (hula hoops, skipping rope, hopscotch, potato sack races, spoon races with fake eggs, and bubble blowing).

After the girls were finished playing backyard garden games. They got dressed up with some shabby chic accessories and took pictures at the {photo booth}. This was Lilly’s favorite part of the entire party!

Cake and desserts came next! They were able to go up and get as many sweets as their little hearts desired from the dessert table! My friend Alyssa made the beautiful cake and bird cookies. She is incredibly talented and is thinking about starting her own bakery…something I am constantly encouraging her to do! She had some other great cupcakes that we were going to use, but a mild soccer ball accident with her son changed that;-)! Instead she got cupcakes from a local bakery the day of the party (what a lifesaver).

We played find the garden gate key. A friend of mine hid the keys all around the garden. The girls had to run and find them. Once they found one they went to the prize table and picked out their butterfly nets and flower headbands. Then they filled a treat box with magnets, hairclips, and other girly accessories.

It was then time to paint their flower pots and plant their flowers to take home! I am sure the parents loved me sending home so many items with the children ;-).

My daughter has chosen for the last two years to donate her gifts. So this year she donated them to a program called Teen Mops. Everyone was asked to bring a gift of $15 or less to donate.”
