Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Parker's Orange and Blue Birthday Party

Photographer Kristen Honeycutt designed and planned this charming orange and blue 2nd birthday party for her son Parker. Most of the details you see were created personally by Kristen, like the invitations, bunting cake topper made from bandanas and wood skewers, and cake pops (thanks to some help from Bakerella's Cake Pop book!). Not to toot our own horn, but we also super love the "P is for Parker" mini tote sourced from our On to Baby shop, which was used to hold the adult party favors, bags of seed bombs. There are so many cute, whimsical details, including the wooden cars and the orange gnome. Cutie Parker looks like he was thrilled to pieces with this fun party!
