Our favourite classic children’s book party theme ideas
The Tales of Beatrix Potter
Beatrix Potter produced many animal-themed books but of course the most popular is The Tale of Peter Rabbit which has proved to be a massively popular theme lately.
Mehroz from Set in September recently styled this uber-stylish Beatrix Potter themed first birthday.

Little Red Riding Hood
There is something very endearing of the tale of the little girl who braves the forest to care for her sick grandmother, perhaps which it is so popular as a party theme.
This magical Wintery Little Red Riding Hood party featured in an early edition of Confetti Fair Magazine.
This one is by Perfect Party Moments, you can read the full details here.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
I adored this from the moment I saw it! Such a classic and moving tale full of gorgeous creatures. Royale Ziegler of But First, Party was inspired to create this Charlotte’s Web party after seeing the farm forward collection from Daydream Society.

The Little Prince Party
A book that explores the wonders of the world through a child’s eyes makes for a perfect party theme!
We couldn’t put this any better than the guys at Fable + Moon, who styled this party – A Practically Perfect Party with Mary Poppins!

Wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day! All I ever wanted was to be a mum and I’m extremely grateful for my kids. One of our fav things to do is to read books and then draw pictures from them. @alicemelvin wrote the high street and it’s my favourite book right now. I feel that she witnessed my childhood, the shops were similar to those in our town, the little girl is called Sally and she is carrying a basket that I had. Obviously I had to cookiefy it. Slide across to see some of my other cookiefied books. My thoughts are also with those who find today difficult 😘😘
