A Whimsical Dumbo Birthday Party

Step right up! We’re sharing a wild and whimsical Dumbo birthday party inspired by Disney’s new film! The birthday girl wanted nothing more than flying elephants when she turned for and can you blame her? What little kid could watch Dumbo and not be mesmerized?! The magical story came to life thanks to her mom, Sally, of Pretty Little Events. It took shape with giant balloons, colorful candy, and carnival games. Sounds fun, now, doesn’t it?! So don’t walk, don’t run, but soar below to see the spectacular show! Er, birthday party!

Dumbo Birthday Party, Whimsical Birthday Party

Sally shares, Come one, come all to the greatest party of them all!

I wasn’t surprised one bit that the heartwarming tale of a baby elephant, separated from his mother would tug at Nola’s little heart strings.  She discovered the story watching the trailer of the soon to be released Disney movie Dumbo Live. She wouldn’t stop asking about it, so when we got home, I popped in the original animated movie and she was hooked, and fell in love like all of us did watching it for the first time.

For this high flying adventure circus party, we knew there had to be balloons involved! Not just any balloons but a fun and whimsical installation to set the stage for the kid’s table. The color inspiration came from the darling little invitations that were purchased online on Zazzle. We used a light gray, seafoam green, and buttery yellow color palette. The table was filled with colorful nostalgic treats like twisted marshmallow puffs and rock candy lollipops.  Creative Amme created custom Dumbo silhouette and calligraphy name drink stir sticks. My favorite element though had to be the laser cut acrylic feathers we used as favor tags for all the little Dumbo plush toys each child received, along with a classic Disney Little Golden Book.

RSVP Event Space offered the perfect setting to create an afternoon of fun filled carnival games including ring toss and Pin the Feather on Dumbo‘s nose. Crepes Bonaparte cooked made to order crepes for guests where they chose fillings of their choice for both savory and sweet options.  And if crepes a la mode weren’t enough, we also did pint sized mini ice cream cones to keep it kid friendly. You can never have enough ice cream at a party is what I say!

A talented group of vendors created the most amazing sweet treats. Oh Sugar Grove‘s cookies are beyond magical.  She created edible treats and did the most amazing royal icing art on Dumbo sugar cookies. Sweetleemade provided mini donuts, chocolate gems, and cute paddle bar cake pops. Josephine LA made a fun confetti buttercream cake topped with fun meringues.

We kept the party feminine in its detail by incorporating lush spring florals of all of our favorite flowers…. garden roses, ranunculus, daffodils, sweet peas, and chamomile flowers. Sally of Fleurie sure knows how to spoil a girl with the most amazing bouquets to grace the tablescape and cocktail tables! 
The party was a huge success and you better believe we will be the first in line to watch the new Dumbo movie!
