Nicole’s little girl will be 2 years old shortly. She wrote to me because she is looking for inspirations for a birdie birthday theme. I often find that looking at art print for kids is an excellent starting point. I have to warn you that you will probably want to buy an art piece or two. On the other hand, if you do, your party decor will be transformed into a useful souvenir.
I love the illustrations made by Lorena Siminovich. Her style talks to me. It is playful yet sophisticated enough to appeal to the discerning parents. Another advantage to be inspired by art is that it gives you a color palette.
Be Crafty with the Bird Silhouette
Bird silhouette designs are relatively easy to find if you look at baby clothes, home accessories, handmade toys and invitations. The silhouette shape already carries a childish vibe. It is simple to make your own template and be crafty.
You can add a festive look for a 2 years old party through the use of pattern and colors. Look for beautiful pattern, like you see here on the Bird Baby Bib, to make your own birthday banner with fabric or paper.
Invitations and the Cake
A beautifully decorated cake is a must. Serving mini cupcakes at a kids’ birthday party is easier to serve then a big cake. And if you have left overs, it is quicker to give a cupcake away to your friends. From the sophisticated birds in the nest cupcakes from Martha Stewart to the do-it-yourself cupcake toppers on a stick, there are lots of options that look great.
For the invites, I like the simplicity of the Birthday Party Birdie Invitations from Vanessa Cavaco. She also make matching round stickers and favor tags. Vanessa has a good eye. She is the one who spotted the lovely felt birdie cupcake toppers and the bib, both available on etsy. Look at all her finds for the theme.
More Art Prints with Little Birds
Finally, I invite you to revisit my post on Birds in a Tree decor for a nursery. You could use the wall decals I showcased or be inspired by the stretched art pieces for kids.
I hope all these ideas will inspire you to create your own birdie birthday party theme. It is a fun theme to play it.
