Peacock Party for Brides, Grads or Birthday Babes

Peacock Party
PeacockPartyImagine my delight when Clare requested a Peacock-themed party for her 6th birthday. We had some fun handmade ideas but also found many cute peacock products on the market. During our research (a-hem, shopping) we found beautiful items for not only birthday festivities but bridal showers, graduation parties and weddings. Classic peacock motifs don’t seem to be going anywhere soon.

Today I’m going to give you a peek at the party. In another post I’ll share all of the product sources. I’m also happy to turn any of the handmade items into a tutorial although everything we did was pretty simple! Just let me know what you would like to know more about in the comments.
Peacock PartyA few days before the party Clare threw a wrench in the peacock party by requesting a classic “doll” cake. Since I had one for my own sixth birthday and it was one of my favorite birthday memories, I was happy to oblige. I think we pulled in the peacock-theme pretty well. Yes,the peacock princess has a bird on a leash. ha

One of Clare’s contributions to the decor was a peacock palace bird house.

With our leftover cake batter, I made these easy peacock mini-cupcakes. I really love them. So cute!

All of the girls painted and decorated their own birdhouse to take home. I was impress with how hard they all worked on them. I wanted to keep them in a row here on my windowsill.
