Cherry Birthday Party

Monday, August 23


























































































































































Update: Cherry Lollies from Europe now available in the shop!

I had more fun planning this "half" birthday party for my youngest daughter, than just about any other party I've spun for my little ones. The truth is, I've been planning it for over a year--ever since I spotted those adorable cherry lollipops at Mamie Gateaux. But when my daughter's birthday arrived earlier this year, I was super sick with HG, so the whole day ended up being a bust and any thought of a party went on hold. Fast forward 6 months and we find ourselves in the midst of cherry season. Well, how about that? I decided to put to use these cute party supplies and throw a "half" birthday party for my little redhead instead. She had such a good time being a part of it all and now I finally feel satisfied. With a new baby coming, she really deserved a day being just about her--every little person does!

Steph....that is SO darling! Love the cherry lolly pops too! A cute party for such a cute little girl!

Angela said...

Absolutely charming but I have to ask ... did those two sided cherry lollipops get sticky pretty quickly or did the guests eat them before that happened?

Kirsten said...

What a beautiful party and great attention to detail. I love it!

Simple adorable. Too bad I don't have a girl, but it would make for a cute baby shower idea too.

Looked like one very special day! I'm sure your daughter felt very loved, indeed. I'm saving these pics. Wonderful inspiration, as always

Joslyn said...

completely fantastic friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stephanie said...

Thank you for all the sweet comments!

Angela, the lollipops worked out just fine...I didn't notice any stickiness until of course the kids started eating them. But straight out of the package they are not sticky, which is why I could use them so many ways!

Kristin said...

Wow! What a beautiful party! It looks like a magazine shoot!

Charla said...

This party is so darling! I love all the sweet little touches!

Truly fantastic! I'm a cherry fan myself and would have been in heaven with a party dedicated to my favorite fruit. You didn't miss a beat! Everything is perfect.

Steph -- it turned out wonderful! It was a pleasure to be able to see it in person and your photos turned out fantastic! V had a blast. Thanks again.

I love that you used Rainier cherries - a nice contrast with all the 'cherry red'. So pretty, well done! I bet the young lady loved the day.

molly ruth said...

As a Northwest cherry grower I may be biased, but looking at the pictures I'm disappointed we can't all attend! What a well-planned, thoughtful party. Very original. I love to see the Rainier cherries too. They're a lot harder to grow, so the few that make it to market are extra special...perfect for a celebration!
