Charlotte’s Web Party Details:
This is what Emily shared about the event-
Liesl is my eldest, animal-adoring daughter. When the time rolled around to begin working on her party theme for her upcoming 6th birthday, she decided upon the theme herself her favorite book (and movie), Charlottes Web. She had just one party requirement, I want pigs and animals at my party!
When Liesl told me she wanted a Charlottes Web themed party, I knew there were a lot of things I could do for this theme! I used the farm/barn/animals in the story for the main inspiration, but also lots of webs and some of Charlottes favorite web writings as accents. This really is such a sweet theme for a birthday party because the story of Charlottes Web is really about true friendship!
I used the ideas of farm and county fair together when decorating for this party. In the book, Wilbur goes from Zuckermans barnyard to the County Fair, so this plays right into the theme of the book. To make it more girly, I used pastel colors, and pink gingham tablecloths. I used bales of hay throughout, but also incorporated things such as rosette ribbons, corn on the cob, and mini pies to go with the County Fair theme..
My Favorite Items
I fell in love with the handmade spider webs that Amy from Bellas Perfect Party made. I used them on the food card signage, but also ended up putting them on the barn centerpieces which made them picture perfect for the Charlottes Web theme. They were truly SO perfect for the party!!
I was thrilled with how the party favors turned out they were something the kids could really use and enjoy, rather than just a bunch of junky toys. The kids liked getting a stuffed big and a hardcover book of Charlottes Web to call their very own!
I also adored the Charlottes Web Cake Topper and animals made by Liz at Les Pop Sweets she and I worked together to create this idea for the cake and I couldnt have been happier!
Many thanks of all of my amazing vendors!
My Party Advice
This party ending up being one of our largest let we had about 95 kids and adults in attendance. One key to a good party at your home is making sure there is enough things to keep the kids (of various ages) entertained. We hired a petting zoo with farm animals to keep the kids occupied, but also had a games master referee to organize games (think tug of war, water balloon toss, sack race) for the other kids who werent as “into” the animals. I also set up a craft table with Charlottes Web themed arts and crafts that drew a big crowd as well. It’s good to have something for everyone to enjoy!
Also, if planning a Charlottes Web themed party of your own, I would suggest shopping the day after Halloween to get a good deal on spiders, webs, and rats!”
