“Little Legends, Exceptional Men in Black History” Birthday Party
This is what Victoria said about planning/styling the party:
“It’s no secret that 2020 has been a tough year for children. I wanted to do something at home for my son, Lennon’s, birthday to honor his heritage. Ever since he was a baby, we’ve been reading a page together every night of Vashti Harrison’s ‘Little Legends, Exceptional Men in Black History’. Each night, we would focus on one individual and their accomplishments. As my son is getting older, he’s starting to look forward to this. When I had the idea to turn this book into a birthday theme for Lennon, I wanted him to feel represented in a beautiful light.
Setup & Decor-
The cover of the book was my inspiration for the decor. I worked with Moon Rising, an incredible designer that helped me recreate Lennon in the same style as the characters in the book. He was now front and center as he is an exceptional black boy, soon to be a man.
I kept the color scheme the same as the cover of the book, focusing on black, white, mint, and yellow stars. Working with Pavan Floral is always a pleasure. The florals she creates are stunning. They always fit perfectly with my aesthetic. The star of the show was the incredible backdrop provided by Modest Peach. They recreated the cover and had each character life-size standing on podiums. I want Lennon to always remember this day. How special he is. How exceptional he is and to shoot for the stars.
Janice Wong with the desert never disappoints. We had a beautiful cake where she hand-painted the characters. The cookies featured the faces of the characters in the book and the cake pops had a printed image of the cover.
A BBQ lunch, catered by the incredible Sarah of Active Palate, was the perfect meal. The children had Mac and cheese cups and fried chicken sliders, while the adults had a BBQ and a beautiful grazing table put together by cheese pretty please. A yummy green juice for the kids and sangria for adults by Nate Parker really complimented the meal.
Party Favors & Photography-
Each party guest was given a bookmark with a different character from the book and their names on the back. We also had library cards made so that they can continue reading the rest of the book series and learning about exceptional people in history.
The incredible Kara Coleen shot this day for us. She helped us capture the magic of a day we’ll always remember.”
