Thank you to our friend from LA, Victoria P for submitting this gorgeous little party with a beautiful message. Lennon celebrated his third birthday party with a worthy theme – he’s teaching the world how to recycle! Complete with his own truck and a visit from his favourite local waste removalists, this party was both fun and super stylish! The colour scheme was made up of sage, slate blue, brown, yellow and dark green. Victoria gives us the details below.
Recycling Themed 3rd Birthday – Lennon’s Changing The World
My little guy has been obsessed with the trash truck since he’s been able to show expression. I wanted to create a theme for Lennon’s 3rd birthday that focused on changing the world, recycling, and saving the planet while focusing on his love for the trash truck.
We started with a color palette of sage, slate blue, brown, yellow and a darker green. From there I was set on building out a a whole center for Lennon that focused on recycling inclusive of the truck of course, a recycle can with an image of a tree as part of saving the planet, a rack with Waste Management vests and a recycling center that focused on all the items we can recycle.
Cat from Modest Peach absolutely nailed this build out and my vision. We used the recycle cart as a dessert stand to showcase all the incredibly beautiful desserts and cake made by Dien of Sweet Deetails. Dien also designed the graphic of Lennon as a Waste Recycle Worker. We also customized each child at the party with their own graphic design of themselves as a Waste Recycle Worker. Malisa from Creative Amme then created place cards of each child for their table settings. I also got customized trash can utensil holders with each childs name made and perfectly suited stir sticks of a recycle truck and the phrase “Let’s Change The World”.
Party Shop Ave did an amazing balloon install to resemble trashing coming out of cans and the truck and Shana from Sharp Balloons made Lennon’s little garbage truck balloon that he would not let go of. As always Brie from Pavan Floral stunned with her gorgeous floral arrangements. We also had bumper cars for the kids which were a massive hit provided by Busy Bee Soft Play rentals. The highlight of all was the Waste Management team arriving. I have never seen a happier Lennon. They let him go into the truck and blow the horn. They brought him a present. It was truly special. Hopefully these kids understood the importance of recycling and striving to save this planet. Photos by the incredible Kara Coleen who never fail to capture every event so beautifully.
