It’s Kate Landers here, thrilled to be back here on Layla Grayce sharing with you all Noah’s third birthday party. I hope it may provide inspiration for your next baby shower or child’s birthday party.

Noah has always had a fascination with the moon and stars, and the months leading up to his birthday he developed a love of rocket ships. It seemed like the perfect theme for his party. Here are some details from the party and tips I learned along the way:

  1. Color Scheme: Don’t be afraid to use a non-traditional color scheme for a popular celebration theme. Most rocket and space themed events feature bright colored planets and stark black backgrounds. I wanted to keep the party very soft, light and toddler-friendly. I chose to go with a lot of white, accents of silver and pale mint green.
  2. Dessert Display: Designing dessert tables is a passion of mine, however in this case I wanted to do something a bit less-traditional. Hosting the party in our cozy home, I decided to use a window sill to display the sweets, draping a silver moon & star garland above it. Using a smaller space kept me from going overboard with too many beautiful sweets, and didn’t overwhelm the birthday boy or his guests.
  3. Party Table: A last-minute decision was to use custom designed gift wrap as a table runner. It worked perfectly and was a cinch to make. I love mixing fabric and paper, so you will see embroidered linen napkins with paper plates, a tissue tassel garland with a custom fabric “rocket” teepee. Working with different materials can be a great way to add texture and interest to your party.
  4. Simplifying Toddler Parties: Toddlers can get overwhelmed easily, so we kept the party short, guest list small and a simplified itinerary (activity, craft, play). It worked beautifully! 90 minutes was the perfect amount of time for our party. We decorated cardboard rockets, hit Noah’s very first piñata (which was a favorite activity for certain!) and did lots of imaginary play in the spectacular custom teepee (it was a rocket for the party, but I overheard it being a fort, tree house, cave). We finished off with birthday cake and cupcakes at the table.
  5. Decorate Party & Play Spaces: I loved the custom prints and signs Anders Ruff Custom Designs created for Noah’s party, and ended up framing and hanging them in his playroom after the party. The tepee and tassel garland are also in his playroom, creating a festive feel, reminding us of such a special celebration, and giving him great use of that tepee long after turning three. I love and highly recommend re-using party props for bedrooms and play spaces!

Looking forward to sharing more celebration inspiration with you here on Layla Grayce in the months to come!
