Pirates, pixies, and mermaids…This was the answer Laine gave to my question of what type of birthday party she wanted. Naturally Neverland came to mind, and the planning began.

I always start with a color palette. For this party I became a little obsessed with these adorable fairytale plates I found online and wanted to stay comporable to the color/style, but keep Neverland in mind as well. IMG_0386

(Zulily, we heart pink fairytale scallop plate)

Candy pink, emerald green, and light blue balloons with gold curling ribbon topped off the mint green table covers.


Next came my favorite part, the party favors, which were felt pirate hats and glittery crowns, along with pirate loot (bubbles, necklaces, pencils, and gold coins) in white and gold spotted bags!

Cupcakes in simple chocolate or vanilla with white icing, topped with glitter star picks, and ice cream cups were just right for the mid afternoon party time.


Last but not least the invitation to get the word out! I decided to pull characters from the party plate I was obsessing over and place them in a map of Neverland, as well as use the classic image of Peterpan and friends flying off to the second star on the right! Gold washi tape was added for sparkle and off it went.


Here are a few more party pics.

This was one of the simplest parties I’ve put together. Sometimes less is more!
