Birthday in a Box (the Chic Version)


My daughter’s birthday is coming up in mid-April, and I am doing my annual pre-party freakout. I believe in keeping it easy, yet as part of my job I spend all day looking at gorgeous design blogs where magazine spread-worthy kid parties are the norm. Can a party be simple to pull together but gorgeous too?

The answer might be in the party kits by Meri Meri. From invites to cupcake toppers to garlands to goody bags, it’s all here – and it’s all lovely. No cheesy cartoon characters here; although the themes are the ones you’d expect – pirates, princesses and the like – the treatment is chic and subtle. Pieces are sold separately (so you can just get want you need) or in a jumbo party pack that includes the whole shebang.

Alas, we are having a karate party, and there is no martial arts kit (however: I’m so psyched to make this cake!) But next year we are so having a ballet party.
