I'm so happy to share a ton of pictures from the boys' teepee party. I may have gotten carried away with all the photos, but I had a hard time narrowing it down to this massive compilation. ;) The party was a lot of fun and the kids really seemed to enjoy themselves. The boys' were riding their ponies and playing with the teepee for many days after (there are some photos of the sock hobby horses towards the end of this post). I'm going to start with pictures of the decor. We went with a black, white and yellow colour scheme which you may have guessed from the invitation I made. I used a lot of tissue paper tassel garlands, cute printable signs, a diy pennant, the big teepee, little paper teepees and balloons as the main decor.
This little banner was a DIY that I made (I'll be posting a how to soon). It ended up looking really cute hanging from the rhino nose. I'm hoping to reuse this as wall decor in the boys' room.
These paper teepees were based on a free printable.
I'm so happy with how the teepee turned out. It was the centrepiece of the party. You can find the tutorial here.
I forgot to take good pictures of the food and desserts. I kept them pretty simple without a ton of special decor for them. We had black, white and yellow cutlery, napkins, plates, etc. and the only extra I really added to the food were the flags on top of the cupcakes. We had the boys' favourite fancy mac'n cheese, karjalan piirakkas, veggies, meringues, cupcakes, fruits and ginger cookies.
The buffet made a great backdrop for the party with the garlands teepees and poster.
Before I get to the fun part, aka party games, here's a little reminder of the invitations we gave out. One of our little party attendees told her mom that Little Pilot put the ribbon on her invitation so that she could hang it on her door. <3
So here are the games...
"Pin the door on the teepee" was a simple game. I just drew a teepee shape on our chalkboard wall and cutout some triangles for doors from scrapbook paper.
I set up a station for the kids to make their own teepees. I used a printable (link here) and placed some skewers, feathers and glue out for the kids to make their own little teepee.
In addition, to the sock hobby horses we gave out a small treat bag.
The birthday boys: two and four years!
I think this party was my favourite from the few that we have thrown now. I think it's because the kids seemed to all have so much fun.
