Shoes Birthday Party
Every girl’s dream, a shoe themed birthday party! Little Prue strutted in style for her 2nd birthday party and enjoyed everything from custom cupcakes to Sweet Lydia’s Smores! I served Sweet Lydia’s Smores at a Peacock Engagement Party I hosted last summer, and they were a hit!
As told by the birthday girl’s Mom (Amanda) “Prue has been fascinated by shoes for some time. She is constantly checking out what shoes people are wearing. She likes to point her shoes out to everyone too.” And why the pink converse chucks? ” She’s had a pair of pink hightop chucks since she first started walking so I thought that would be the perfect shoe to highlight.”
Enjoying tapas and sweet treats including pumpkin and original smore bites, adults and kids enjoyed themselves alike! Amanda told us, “The biggest hit was for sure the “hot dog cheese“, which were hot dogs cut in half wrapped with cheese & crescent rolls & baked (some would know them as pigs in a blanket). We made them because Prue loves hot dogs & always asks for hot dog cheese (not that she’s ever had hot dogs with cheese!)”
Amanda even made her own favors for the children that attended by attaching cut out labels to small containers of play-doh! Love this idea! She also handled all the cute decorations herself including the “streamer curtains” which is an idea I have taken note of – darling!
And biggest tip that I truly value is amazing photography. Amanda knew she would enjoy the party and have amazing pictures with the help of her good friend Kate Guillette. “I think my biggest advice for children’s parties is to have a friend or family member in charge of capturing images of the party. You’ll be able to enjoy the actual party, but will still have the great photos that really capture the day. I’m used to being behind the camera so it’s great to have the moments of Prue & I together.” 100% Agree, Amanda, and these images are darling!
