Braelyn's Mary Poppins Themed 4th Birthday Party

Cherry Blossom Events translated birthday girl Braelyn's favorite movie, Mary Poppins, into a darling fourth birthday with the most charming details. The whole family got into the theme, dressing up to match the day. The use of silhouettes, parasols, and details with a vintage feel helped bring the theme to life. Read on for more about the day from Sarah Sarbacker of Cherry Blossom Events, then be sure to check out the full gallery for more photos by Laurels & Stars Photography.

From Sarah:
“I wanted to incorporate all the unique details from the movie and of course there were some must haves. Guests were greeted by the carpeted purse with a lamp coming out of it to give tribute to her famous carpet bag and entrance to the children, as well as suitcases and a sign stating they were at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. We had the menu printed on a sign with the penguin looking like he was stating what was to order, as well as the ever famous spoonfuls of sugar and mini penguins. Kites and parasols were practically perfect touches for entertainment for the birthday party. Braelyn's Mary Poppins dress made her feel as though she had transformed into her and having her friends color with Bert's Bit O' Magic Sidewalk chalk as they imagined jumping into another land - were all parts of this beautiful day!”
