This is our first party feature of the year, and what better way to debut then with this stunning winter, Penguin Birthday Party styled by my sweet and mega talented friend Dorangela, from Two Prince Bakery Theater?!
Dorangela used our Cool Igloo Party printables to style her little boy's birthday party, which we also featured in Bird's Party Magazine Holiday Issue.
Below are the amazing details as told by Dorangela, and links of all the fabulous, dedicated and hugely talented vendors involved!
This party would have never come to fruition if it wasn't for some fabulous vendors. They were so quick to participate and turn their products around much quicker than they normally would in order to make this party such a huge success.
First up this lovely little guys that the lovely Brittany from Edible Details came up with based on Bird's Party adorable penguins from the Cool Igloo collection. Down to the last detail of adding the cake for some of the penguins and the polka dot balloons we would be using in the party, she made these pieces of sugar art the main event at our party. Be sure to check out her website to be wowed by the talent she has for making such gorgeous creations out of sugar.
Nikki, from Nikki in Stitches has been such a great resource for several parties that I have styled. We just provide her with the color scheme for the event and she creates these fabulous custom headbands. The little girls loved them as did I. They tied everyone's clothing together very nicely down to the sparkly rhinestones that resembled the ice in our Cool Igloo party!
Carmen, from Pomflair, creates amazing paper poms and pomettes as well as tassels entirely by hand. She stocks any color you can dream of and has been a crucial part of several parties we have recently styled. Not only is she super talented in creating this lovelies out of tissue paper, she is also a wonderful party stylist and I'm happy to say friend as well.
Jaimee, from Bushel & Peck Paper, has worked on several parties with us. She had a ridiculously short time frame to create two items for us especially for this party, the custom birthday boy print and custom birthday place mats. Her attention to detail sets her apart from many other paper party companies and it results in an amazing product every time!
We had the pleasure to work with Heather from Vintage Confections. Not only is she super sweet, her lollipops are gorgeous and SO delicious. I ordered these in coconut flavor and I will tell you they were so yummy that I actually wrestled the last one away from the chubby hand of a two year old. I am not proud of it but that's how good they are! Her work has been featured on Martha Stewart and she even created lollipops for the candy queen herself, Dylan Lauren! She was so gracious to take time away from her busy schedule to add a very special element to our party and it was perfect!
We love working with the Paper Nook. She has come up with several adorable goodie bags for my boys for several parties and she always does an amazing job! For this party I told her I wanted Polka dots in my party bags. These were not an item she already had in the shop so she created them just for this event! They tied the balloon colors perfectly to the rest of the table.
Sweeties by Kim creates the perfect chocolate covered Oreo. Not only does it look perfectly beautiful and polished in our party colors, but they also taste amazing!
Shop My Little Love, is stocked with the most fun and colorful assortment of paper products. These polka dot baking cups were perfect for our Penguin cupcakes. If you haven't already you need to check out her adorable shop were she sells every color paper straw and baking cup you could ever want as well as other fun party goods!
I have been a fan of The Cookie Jar for some time. Ira and Lisa are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and they make gorgeous and delicious cookies. For goodness sakes they even sent me Hello Kitty cookies one time because I was having a particularly challenging week! They can make anything you dream up into a cookie!
