Who will help me celebrate?
This Little Red Hen birthday party was for a friends sweet little girl who was turning 2. She loves the story of the Little Red Hen and her mom liked the idea of using a theme that hasn’t been done a million times. We decided to use the classic golden book as our inspiration, and it turned out absolutely darling!
Her mom made the invitations and I was blown away when I saw them. She recreated the story and bound them like a little golden book, oh. my. goodness. they were cute!
One of my favorite things about this party were the decorations. I used my new backdrop frame and covered it with chicken wire. I hung a banner I made from the book pages of the classic Little Red Hen book. I hit up thrift stores looking for the classic book and found 3 copies, each for $0.25, score! I also used it to make some of the cupcake toppers.
And the star of the party was definitely the cake. Danese with Danese Griffith’s Floral & Cake Design created the stunning Little Red Hen. Don’t you just love her little yellow coat? This cake was too pretty to eat, but we did and it was so yummy!
We also incorporated leftover fabric from her the birthday girls dress to make party favor bags and each child left with their very own copy of The Little Red Hen.
This was such a fun party to work on and I loved creating and designing around the classic story and Golden Book, The Little Red Hen. Do you have a favorite golden book story?
