Real party: a Curious George second birthday

This colorful party was sent to me by Jessica of Live the Fancy Life blog.  She styled the entire event for her friend Lisa's son Miles. Lisa wanted a modern chic Curious George themed birthday party with fun activities for the kids.

Jessica and I have never met in person but have been internet friends (that sounds kind of nerdy, doesn't it?) for a couple of years now.  She is super sweet and has an adorable toddler named Bodhi, and has been kind of enough to offer advice and support when I became a new momma.  She recently left her corporate/day job to pursue freelance writing and event styling.  If you are in the Twin Cities area you should definitely consider hiring her for your next event.  She styles beautiful parties (like this one!) and has great taste.  Be sure to check out her son's 1st birthday party and his amazing nursery.
Cake pops will never get old, will they?  Yum.

No shortage of adorable Curious George detailsI love these pinwheel cupcake toppers, they were DIY by JessicaThis dessert table is complete awesomeness.  I love the chevron paper detail that was added to the table.  And sometimes a simple, white cake is a perfect centerpiece.


Such a creative use of the paper backdrop flowers.

Miles' mom already owned this yellow table, making it the perfect canvas to display the desserts.
