Tropical FOURest Birthday Party
Tropical FOURest Birthday Party Details:
This is what Juliet shared about the party- “My daughter Hazy is a summer baby so I wanted to do something fresh and fun to celebrate her turning four. I own the best playspace in LA, the COOP — so the venue is a no brainer for me… but I always want to be sure I come up with a fun theme. I also love a party that incorporates headdresses for everyone… so a fresh fruity fun Tropical FOURest party with Carmen Miranda type headdresses was born!!! The headdresses and the hand painted tablecloths turned out to be QUITE a labor of love — but I do love how they both turned out — and my little Hazy is certainly worth the effort!
Decor and Sweets
I wanted to use copious amounts of fresh fruits as the “centerpiece” on the main table — and I love how that looked. The show stopping cake is from Julie at Blue Cupcake whose stunning (and sooooo delicious) creations absolutely NEVER disappoint. I mean — look at those leaves… that flamingo! She’s an artist! Outside I cut green poster board in the shape of leaves (I love a paper craft!) and hung them around the Tropical 4est Balloons from Northstar Balloons. The indoor table cloth was hand painted and the outside ones were spray painted… both fun projects I did at home with the help of my kiddos (esp the spray painted ones!) The Pineapple cups are from Oriental Trading — not incredibly unique — but the kids just love them!!!
Party Hats and More
My other favorite thing I made was the clear party hats. I put ferns/ leaves inside and pom pom on top-fab! It was a bit of an experiment — but I really loved how they turned out. Everyone feasted on loads of fresh delicious fruit and tropical cocktails (gotta give the adults a good reason to come to a 4 year old’s party!) and had an absolute blast. I thought it was a really fun, bright way to celebrate my little girl’s big day… and I think everyone who got to wear a tropical headpiece and taste that delicious cake would agree! Big thanks to Katie Jackson for capturing the fun!”
