Favorite Things Beach Party Details:
This is what Jenny said about planning/styling the party- “When my daughter Audrey was planning her 12th birthday, she was very clear about what she wanted to do- go to her favorite place with her favorite people and do her favorite things. This made choosing a party theme extremely simple- Audrey’s favorite things. She made a list of everything she loves and I pulled everything together by using her favorite color, pink. She suggested using making the envelop look like a brown paper package in reference to her favorite movie- The Sound of Music.
A wooden sign directed the girls to Audrey’s favorite place, the beach, where they ate a prepacked lunch from personalized gable boxes. After spending a beautiful November day swimming with a pod of dolphins that happened to stop where we at, the girls treated themselves to the dessert table. All the desserts represented one of Audrey’s favorite things- a ruffled cake topped with a ballerina for Audrey’s love of dance, elephant topped cupcakes, chocolate covered oreos topped with whales and beach buckets, ice cream shakes, rose cake pops, Minnie Mouse macarons, sea shell cookies and mini boxes of her favorite nutter butter cookies. For the front of the table, I made a garland out of 3d bows, another of her favorite things, cut on my silhouette machine.
The girls spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out on the grass sipping Audrey’s favorite pink lemonade, playing volleyball and taking lots of selfies for Instagram- another on of Audrey’s favorite things.
Brown paper packages tied up with string held the party favors from Audrey’s favorite store. The invitation and other party printables including labels, banners, straw flags and more had a simple ric rac design and monogram all in pink.
The party was perfect for girls of this age, not overly themed but personalized and fun”!
