5 Secrets to More Color at Home

Kellyn’s DIY Geometric Birthday Party


I am beyond excited to finally share the photos from my niece Kellyn’s geometric birthday party last month! The girl is all about being surprised and happily puts the party theme decisions in my sister-in-law and my hands. Last year we threw her a rainbow-hued bash and this year, geometry took the stage! Even better? I was able to partner with The Land of Nod to use a few of their ridiculously awesome pieces that fit beyond perfectly with the theme! We created an awesome little (color crazy!) crafting and eating area (Hello pretty poufs!) for the kiddos to enjoy and added a few other fun touches here and there. I’ll be back tomorrow with a few DIY tutorials from the day, but for now just a hefty dose of geometric partying.

I went geometric honeycomb crazy! Giant ones for the ground, small ones for the big balloon and itty bitty ones for the ice cream sandwich skewers!

While I knew the kids would mostly spend the party running around and entertaining themselves, we wanted to have a few activities on hand. Quinn organized a scavenger hunt and I made a geometric bead crafting station. Perfect amount of organized entertainment!

When I saw this wall organizer, I knew I wanted to use it for a utensil holder, then I gifted it to Kellyn as her birthday present afterwards! Win-win!
