Carousel STYLED PARTIES

I am excited to share this birthday is one of the first that I did everything on my own (with help from the kids, of course). Usually I will have the cake, cupcakes, all the sweet things made by other creatives. This time around I wanted to try my hand at baking. On Sophie’s actual birthday when I asked what she wanted to do she responded with, “Bake with Grammy.” (awwww, heart melt right) Well, that actually opened my eyes to how much Sophie really enjoys baking. She always asks to be involved when I set up parties, so this time she got to! From helping with the simple balloon garland backdrop decor, painting forest trees, helping make the cake and taste testing it too, Sophie got to help!

If you would have asked me a week ago what her party was going to look like, I would have had no idea. I knew I wanted to do a Forest theme. Or should I say, Four-est Theme. Sophie has such a love for exploring and being outside that it fit so perfectly. Everything within the set up was done with the idea to keep it simple. Let’s take a look at some of the woodland forest birthday party decor and DIY’s.

I wanted to add a couple things that I do for each party to save a little money and make the planning process easier.

Party Hacks & Decor Ideas to Save Money

  • Sketch out your party set up before you design it in real time.
  • Don’t feel like you need SO MUCH STUFF. Just a couple of treats are plenty!
  • Save things from previous parties. I have a couple party boxes and can usually reuse a few things every time. This party, the plates, straws, cake topper and forks were all used at previous parties.
  • A white cake stand goes a long way.
  • Creating something to tape and tie your backdrops onto is amazing. Thank you Goldn Grasses for lending me this one.
  • Printables are a hit! Google/ Search Pinterest your theme + free printable and you might be surprised what you will find. Click HERE for the one from this party.

 Woodland FOURest (Forest) Birthday Party Decor Ideas & DIY’s

  1. DIY Balloon Garland Backdrop

    I did the same method to make this Simple coloured Balloon Garland Backdrop as I did for Evelyn’s birthday party. A few difference are that I used multi-coloured and sizes of balloons. I was a fan of the smaller balloons in this woodland themed backdrop as it allowed me to fill the gaps easier and add smaller pops of colour throughout.

  2. Hand Painted Tree Wall Decals

    Hand Painted and cut tree “wall decals” // Sophie painted sheets of paper green and after they dried we cute them out into tree shapes and taped them to the wall behind to look like little tree wall decals.

  3. Woodland Themed Names for Treats

    This is something that was a common theme when I was looking up different woodland and forest themed parties for decor. So, not my original idea, but I loved it so much I had to include it. The tree bowls in the front were labeled, Bear Poop, Branches, and Clouds. I wanted to add Wild Berries in there too but opted out due to the though of having berry juice all over my rug.

  4. Triple Layered Naked Cake with Icing Trees

    Surprisingly an easy cake to pull off. On my Instagram post on the cake I had friends say it turned out “pinterest worthy” (win!). I made two boxes of a Betty Crocker cake mix and was able to make the three layers plus a dozen cupcakes, not bad right. To create the naked cake look I just applied a slopping amount of icing in between the layers and using the dull edge of a butter knife to smooth it out along the edges. Icing was applied around the top and ended up turning out like little trees.

  5. Free Printable Woodland Forest Scavenger Hunt

    I had no idea how this was going to go over with the kids. First of all, there were some kids outside on the trampoline, some playing with toys in the bedroom and some watching a movie. When I announced that we were going to do a scavenger hunt the kids all jumped up from their spots and came to play (minus the oldest who was 9, though my 8 year old joined in!). I shared the game as a free printable for you to download and use, great for a birthday party or really anytime with the kids.

At the end of the day, what is most important is that the kids have fun! That they did! Even though it was on and off raining they were running around inside and outside, eating cake and laughing along the way.

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.

  • Hello Buddha•Full friends. Happy weekend 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If you have time you should head over to @shopwillowbrook and the @buddhafullprovisions pop-up bus for a unique foodie experience! They are here today and tomorrow from 11AM-6PM for all your plant-based & vegan food needs. Soooo good! The kids slurped on some smoothies, and I enjoyed their Açai bowl up on the top of the bus as the summer sun radiated down. I guess you could say the whole experience is designed for a Budda-full life 😉  #ad #shopwillowbrook
  • Ok guys. @thebirdspapaya is a freaking babe, in and out. She’s started #SLOWMOBODYFLOW and her post had me like 😳🙊😅😂🥰 all the feels. But mostly left me feeling like, I gotta try this. For me, when I share progress photos like photo one, I always feel weird because even though I look smaller I know that the jiggle is still there, even though YOU cant see it. I’m so proud of where I’ve come this year in being more active and feeling stronger. Yes sometimes I wish I didn’t jiggle, but this post from Sarah got me excited to share that jiggle (swipe left) and not feel weird about it so I’m hopping right into her convo with a little SLOMO tummy jig.
  • I've recently taste tested @Breyers delights NEW flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge and they all taste amazing!
⠀
Each of the three flavours have 4 g of protein, are only 80 - 90 calories per 125 ml serving and contain high quality ingredients like Canadian milk and cream, cocoa, sprinkles, fudge, brownies and sustainably farmed vanilla beans.
⠀
Sounds pretty good right?! Want to try them out for yourself?

  • So I did a thing and tried something new (surprise surprise, right ha!) ⁠
.⁠
I wanted a new style sunnies for this summer, but I loved the frames so much I also wanted them to be my everyday indoor glasses too. Well, I went for it, splurged a bit and got my first pair of transition lenses. One minute they are perfect for indoors and the next I'm rocking sunnies in the sunshine. Took me a bit to get used to, but easily my frames of choice these days. #ad #irisvisualgroup 📷@juliechristinephotography
