Transform Your Next Event: Once Upon a Time Theme

Ready for some party inspiration for your little one’s next celebration? Although we love a good trending theme, we also like to get our creative juices flowing and throw out the rule book. That’s why we love a good DIY party that allows us to think outside of the box!

Are you ready for an unforgettable magical celebration? Read on to see tips on how you can transform your space into this “Once Upon a Time” picnic setup perfect for your next birthday theme.

Party Spotlight:

“Once Upon a Time” is a magical and imaginative theme that takes inspiration from enchanted gardens and storybook adventures. It is filled with both bold and muted tones, intertwined with whimsical florals. Perfect for a child’s birthday party, but still sophisticated enough for a bridal or baby shower.

Add A Statement Piece…Your DIY Balloon Garland Kit:

We love a celebration with balloons. Here we used our Enchanted Garden Balloon Garland Collection (in our large size), this kit includes captivating colors such as lavender, blush and hues of mint and eucalyptus. This organic garland is a great statement piece for your party, while the different size balloons add texture and dimension. Whether real or artificial, strategically place your florals into the balloons. It was important for us to include a combination of both muted and bold tone balloons, colors right out of a story book!

Have some fun by taping torn book pages along your balloon garland. Don’t be afraid to get creative and showcase your imagination! Click here to shop our luxe balloon garland kits and view our simple DIY balloon garland tutorial. Displayed in the image is our large DIY kit.

Get Creative With Decor:

Transform your table with these charming centerpieces that include a mix of amber and clear vases with pops of florals. Create a cohesive table display without intentionally trying to be too coordinated. Line your table with taped torn book pages and stacked old books. You can find well-loved and charmingly aged books at your local consignment shop. The best part about secondhand books? They’re inexpensive! We just adore how these aged book pages are gracefully cascading off the table.

Don’t forget to check out the frame department while you’re there. Search out some vintage style frames for your tabletop décor.

Will you be trying out this theme? We would love to see your beautiful designs. Be sure to tag us, @noelleraeco!

Thank you to our friends WildChild Rentals, Enchanted Events and Talia Pirri Photography for this beautiful DIY setup.
