For my daughter's second birthday in March, I planned a woodland forest theme at Ferndell Park. I'm not usually a fan of park parties, but this place is pretty special and fit the theme perfectly. I downloaded the squirrels from Martha Stewart and filled them with toys and treats. Vintage linens gave the party a sweet picnic look, along with bamboo plates and wooden cutlery. The kids fed peanuts to the squirrels, made gnome terrariums and went crazy over the surprise entertainment. It was magical.
Crazy-eyed gnomes up to no good...

For the next event, my super talented friend hosted a woodland party for her nephew's first birthday. She used some of the same concepts but with a completely different, and adorable, look. Her centerpieces were amazing! She used grass flats and decorated them with little ceramic woodland creatures found in the dollar bin at Target. I made the woodland sugar cookies as party favors and did a cupcake tower with chocolate and buttermilk vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting.
