1st Birthday: It's a Small World After All

Love everything about this Small World party from Linsey of Lux Events.  This first birthday was designed around the classic Disney ride and highlights so many charming little details in pink, purple + gold.  Three cheers for the hand-painted backdrop, gold doilies and international cupcake characters!  Read on for all the details below...

From Linsey: I just loved working with this theme! The mom chose It's A Small World because they love Disneyland, It was the birthday girl's first ever ride at Disneyland and because they love to travel! I took all of my inspiration for this party from the Small World Castle. I Created geometric shaped cupcake picks that played of the shapes in the castle and were placed into Hero's Baking Co.'s delicious strawberry cupcakes. I used gold dollies for dessert labels to play of the spinning parts of the castle. I hand painted the Small World Castle to use as the backdrop for the dessert bar. To incorporate all the children of the world, I utilized the graphics from the nested graphic shop on ETSY. I printed the children out and made miniature cupcake picks. Hero's sugar cookies on the dessert bar were piped with geometric shapes. There were also circle and triangle cookies that were topped with gold sugar sprinkles. The kids party bags had treasures from around the world. I custom made birthday hats for each of the young party guests. I used a gold stamp pad to stamp the frilly circles on the hats and then trimmed them with tissue festooning.
