Storybook & Fairytale Birthday Parties

Are you starting to plan your child's birthday party, and looking for a creative theme? Look no further than your child's library featuring fairytales and storybooks from yesteryear for themes considered the most innovative and fresh today!

Two fabulous examples are children's parties based on the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, as well as the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.

This extraordinary Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn party is a first birthday celebration for twin boys, Day and Ford.

Decor was set to look like something off right off the Mississippi river in author Mark Twain's time, with burlap used for linens, bunting and sippy cup liners!

Activities included readings of Mark Twain stories by an actor dressed as the infamous author himself, as well as live animals similar to those Tom or Huck may have run into during their adventures.

The food featured authentic southern recipes and each dish was named to coordinate with a character from one of the stories. I adore this fondant "huckleberry pie" birthday cake--spectacular!

Sophie enjoyed a very special birthday celebration this year--what a darling Little Red Riding hood she is!

Little girls who attended this spectacular Little Red Riding Hood inspired birthday party were each given a hooded red cape to wear, each getting into character right at once!

The incredibly unique decor was incorporated into one outstanding dessert table, with trees, moss, toadstools and other amazing things Little Red might have encountered on her journey through the woods.

Each guest enjoyed a custom "Little Red Riding Hood" doll birthday cake, and enjoyed nibbling on cupcakes near the "Big Bad "Silly" (not scary!) Wolf"  peeping around the corner!
