Bicycle Party Details:
This is what Tali said about planning/styling the party- “Each year, I try to tie my kids’ party to a milestone or some theme that they themselves have gravitated towards. For my daughter this year, it was a big deal to have her training wheels taken off her bicycle. Her dad is also an avid cyclist and this year the Tour De France started in my home town of Leeds, England. So, the theme- I heart my bike- was decided months
Bikes symbolize a lot of things, but for a kid, I think it can be best summarized by the word ‘freedom’. Once you had wheels, your range and turf expanded almost ten-fold! No only that, but you could get to all those places you’d already been to so much faster and my daughter loves cycling around the neighborhood.
For a party theme, capturing these essences isn’t always easy, but my daughter is very ‘girly’ so right off the bat, I know that party decor had to include pink, hearts, flowers, and some sequins or glitter. Her dad cleaned up one of his old bicycle wheels and I decorated it with felt hearts that I got from Fizzy Party on Etsy.
To help capture that freedom and sense of fun, I kept the party printables very whimsical. On the invites, we made sure to make it clear that every guest should have some form of human-powered, wheeled transportation. The idea was for the kids to have a ‘wheely wheely’ fun time- on their bikes, scooters, etc. Once the guests arrived, whilst the adults socialized outside with a cold beverage, the kids were able to ride around our street. We don’t get much traffic on our side road, so this was just a matter of warning the neighbors ahead of time.
To keep the kids safe we also laid out some simple ground rules for them: where exactly they could ride, and what direction of flow to follow. We had kids on bikes with and without training wheels, scooters, big wheels, roller skates, sliders, and even a contraption that I still don’t know what it’s called (a big-wheel-with-casters-as-
After playing hard and building up an appetite, we headed inside for pizza, fresh fruit, crackers and salad. The dessert table featured a large selection of sweets to suit everyone’s palate: chocolate cake, vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, cake pops, chocolate dipped rice crispy treats, and chocolate covered graham crackers. I jazzed up a $13 cake (from a local health food store) with custom glitter letters by Fancy and Fold and cheap Sams Club cupcakes with fondant cupcake toppers from Fancy Cakes.
For the party favors, I found the most adorable bicycle favor boxes from Kate Aspen and just had to use have them for this party. I filled the cute little boxes with sixlets. All the children also got to take home a couple balloons each.”
