Pocahontas Indian Boho Party Details:
This is what Yomaira said about planning/styling the party- “After my twin daughter’s first birthday party which was themed Arabian Nights (after Princess Jasmine from Aladdin), I decided that every year I would choose a princess that they were really into that year and style their party around that theme. Their second birthday was Princess Sophia, then their third birthday was Rapunzel because they watched that movie practically everyday. Then this year came around and of course they wanted a Frozen birthday. Oh boy. My newsfeed was full of Frozen parties and honestly I was pretty tired of the blue and silver combination everywhere I looked. So, I decided to change things up a little bit and I introduced the girls to Pocahontas. They loved the fact that she has long black hair and dark skin just like they did. And of course, I was dying to make a tepee and needed an excuse to make one! Plus, this was probably the last year that I got to get away with picking the theme.
So, off we went on this adventure with a very small budget to make it all work. First I picked a new park called Lake Hiawatha preserve because honestly you cant get any more Native American than that! Then, I re-painted an old desk to use as the dessert table. I wanted a smaller table that was easier to fill up on small budget. My bestie made some homemade chocolate covered pretzels and we ordered macarons from Le Macaron. Then came the cake! I did splurge on the cake this year because I wanted this cake to be the focal point of the dessert table. I contacted Virgo from Cakes by Virgo and gave her a few ideas that I had in mind. She made a stunning cake along with some feather and arrow cookies that were super delicious. I then used a few stands that I had collected over time and of course I had to use my brand new set of vintage milk glass bowls that I found at the local flea market. To finish off the table I had my neighbor slice a piece of a wood trunk to place cake stand on and had it leveled for security. Then I added some baby’s breath that I had from a previous event.
Then, I looked up a tutorial on The Journey Junkie which showed me how to make a dream catcher. I’ve seen some authentic ones at the local flea market running for about $30 each and I ended up making mine for about $12 and I learned a new skill. Score! I then added a tissue paper garland to add some color.
Next came the tepee. Yay! I was initially super excited to make my tepee and had these grand ideas of how marvelous it would look. And then I realized I needed to sew……yea, that was not going to happen. So I grabbed some PVC pipes, twine and large piece of fabric that I had at home and called it a day. I guess my grand tepee idea will just have to be reserved for an expert seamstress.
The guest tables were put together with simple gold mason jar centerpieces and small wood trunk slices. I also made signs for the tables and added hemp string and feathers to old iced coffee bottles to be used as drinking cups.
We were short on time due to the afternoon thunder storms that were quickly approaching, so the kids mostly played in the nearby playground and then we had just enough time to play a game where the kids had to find as many cookies as possible for Meeko, Pocahontas’ pet raccoon. I told them that John Smith had a hole in his bag and accidentally dropped all the cookies he was bringing Meeko the raccoon. The “cookies” where made with card stock paper and a round paper cutter. The child with the most “cookies” won.”
