Red, White & Blue: Patriotic First Birthday Party!

Red, White, and Blue Patriotic First Birthday Party!

We have a darling Americana-themed party feature to share today! Candace of Lillypaul Designs is sharing her son Jack’s adorable patriotic birthday party! You’ll find LOTS of 4th of July and birthday inspiration in these party details! She shared her inspiration: “I am a total sucker for all things Americana.  The Fourth of July has always been my favorite holiday, and when my youngest child was born just a few days before, I knew his first birthday would reflect my love for this All-American holiday.  I decided on a “Jack for President” theme complete with campaign posters, Patriotic desserts and lots of red, white, and blue details.”

Red, White, and Blue Patriotic First Birthday Party!

Be on the lookout for a few of Candace’s favorite details. We also happen to think they are SO cute, and we’re ready to throw a patriotic party!

  • “Vote Jack” campaign poster
  • American Flag Mason jar set
  • Jacks PAC donation center
  • American Flag Pallet picture display

Candace shared all the party details with us! We’re in love with the red, white, and blue and found so much birthday and 4th of July inspiration in this party!

As told by Candace: “To get things started I called on my go to graphic designer Beth of Beth Kruse Custom Creations to create the printable collection complete with Jack’s own campaign slogan “Today the Playhouse, Tomorrow the White House.”  Beth never fails to impress me with her creative details that go with each theme.  Mixing a little retro aqua in with a traditional red, white and blue color scheme; she created the perfect collection.

Every Presidential Campaign needs followers and what better way to win them over than with a cart full of goodies!  A coordinating aqua and red distressed stand from a local furniture refinisher, made the perfect “Propaganda Station” complete with custom lollipops from Lollipics, sparklers, patriotic bubbles, pinwheels, and tattoos from Oriental Trading.

The dessert table, complete with a “Vote Jack” campaign poster backdrop offered some All-American desserts including homemade hand pies, caramel corn, and s’more pops. Salsa Sweets created the perfect bite sized mini cookies to match the printable collection and a delicious berry topped naked cake by HaleyBelle’s Cupcakes rounded out the desserts.  HaleyBelle’s also created a darling red, white and blue ruffled smash cake adorned with a hand tied fabric cake bunting.

And no president would be complete without their own PAC (political action committee).  We teamed up with the amazing non-profit, The Confetti Foundation and collected party supply donations from our guests.  In the end we shipped out two huge boxes of party goodies!”
