Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party

This weekend, we celebrated our little mans FIRST birthday! I feel this year has flown by so quickly! What a blessing he is to our family! For his first birthday (and party for that matter….poor sweet babe never had a baby shower), we wanted it to be very special! He was the little star for the day and how appropriate to have the theme “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”!

Last week, I shared my Party Planning Details! I think it turned out great and I know he loved all the treats! We picked gold, black and white as our color palette. Of course,  stars on all the decorations and some party food! The Blackboard Perfection Party Decor from Minted was a great choice for this theme! It truly made everything flow nicely and fall perfectly in sync! I even used black foam board for the back drop, which went nicely with the black board party decor.

We decided that milk and cookies would be a great treat for all the kids! My mom was amazing and baked NINE dozen cookies for our little man’s special day! We had peanut butter, chocolate chip and s’mores! Yum! We also enjoyed the tasty star chocolate cake and star sugar cookies that were made by others as well! So nice not having to worry about all the food preparations and they all did such a beautiful job! My amazing hubby was also a huge help! Thank you everyone! Of course, every party should have little treats with goodie bags to fill, so I kept the candies black and white to help the table look even prettier!

The decorations are always my favorite part! I love seeing it come together and the theme fall into place! We hung shiny gold stars on the pergola. Every time the sun hit them, it would send sparkles shooting everywhere. It was really a starry night-like effect! We had a giant gold “1” balloon and a gold star, which all the kids loved, naturally! We also had “star dust” sprinkled on all the tables (fancy word for confetti)! I also made some really cute glittered star card holders for the sips and treats signs – it was just such a fun little theme to play around with.

Most of all, the kids had fun playing and eating all the treats! It was a beautiful day as we celebrated a very special little boy! I am so thankful for the people in his life that love him and show him just how special he really is, he sure deserves it!

    That is BY FAR the cutest theme I have seen. Your decorations down to the very last detail are perfect. Wish I would have thought of this for my guy when he turned 1 (he is turning 4 next month!). Such a beautiful party!

    • HelloLidy

      Aw, thanks Jule! That is so sweet! It’s never too late and happy birthday to your sweet son!! Do you have a theme?!

      XOXO

      • Jule

        I am 9 weeks away from my due date with #2 (a little girl!) so this year, I didn’t put in as much thought as I normally would :( We are having his birthday at his favorite bouncy house with a few of his friends…so hopefully he’ll like it! :)

        • HelloLidy

          That sounds perfect!!! Especially when you are probably just ready to be done being pregnant! Congrats – so exciting!! Girls are so fun….and a little bit dramatic 😉

          XOXO

  • It turned out great Lidy! That black foam core backdrop is my favorite part – I may be stealing that idea down the road. So smart!

    • HelloLidy

      Thanks Haeley :) That’s really sweet of you to say – I would be honored!

      XOXO

    This is adorable! Your little man looks like he had a lot of fun.

    • HelloLidy

      Thanks Angelica! He really did have such a good time! Didn’t cry or fuss the whole time and he LOVED his first taste of the chocolate cake 😉

      XOXO

    Hi Lidy,
    This is sooo nice. I am planning a twinkle star birthday party for my daughter too.
    Can you tell me where you get those clear serving dishes for the cookies? Also where did you get the gold star runner for the table. You did a great job! Thanks for the inspiration

    • HelloLidy

      Hi Shirly!

      Of course, so happy to help! I picked up the clear serving dishes for the cookies at Party City :) The gold star table runner is actually wrapping paper from the dollar store, but you can EASILY recreate this. Just buy kraft paper, a star stamp and gold ink. It might take a little time, but it will give you a similar look :) Thanks so much for your kind words and good luck with your party! Happy birthday to your sweet daughter!

      XOXO

  • Amy

    Hi Lidy,
    I’m doing the same theme for my daughter next month. I love what you did! Did you make the bunting yourself? And the gold stars you hung from the pergola?

    • HelloLidy

      Hi Amy! So sorry it took me so long to get back to you! If it’s not too late, I got the bunting through Minted and the stars are just from a party store :)

      Hope the birthday was a success!

  • Amy Goldsmith Welch

    • HelloLidy

      Hi Amy! Of course I can – I got it from Home Goods :) Thanks for your kind words!

    Hi Amy, I want to use this theme for a baby shower do you have ideas for decoration it’s girl and the mother wants silver, purple and white color.

    • HelloLidy

      Hi Mattie,

      You can easily do this theme with those colors! First of all, white and silver are great neutrals to work with, so really you just have to focus on that purple. I would mainly use silver and white, but use purple as that pop of color in little pieces like the cups, straws, napkins, a few balloons, etc. So where I used black and white, substitute for white and silver and where I used gold, substitute for purple! Hope that makes sense :)

      Good luck!!!

      XO
