Griffin's KOALA Birthday dinner


It's no secret that Griffin's FAVORITE animal is the koala and I wasn't shocked when she asked for a koala-themed birthday dinner.  I started looking for some inspiration via pinterest and was sad that everything out there (pretty much) was pastel pink and gray and was giving 'baby shower'.  I decided to "go rogue" with colors that I knew she liked and then incorporate some gray in there to tie in the koalas. 

I had  these napkins and knew the pink and orange would be right up G's alley so I ran with those colors and it turned out so cute!  The table "runner" was just a $2.50 roll of wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby that I cut a piece from.  I love using wrapping paper as a runner because it's generally inexpensive and makes a big impact.

I got a few flowers from Trader Joe's to make a few little jars for the table...

and really lucked out with the lilies and freesia.

I bought  a couple of these balloons from Amazon and blew them up with  my balloon pump...

... and made a few "party koala" cake toppers using this figurine as well as this set of figurines and some leftover ribbons and pom poms ;)


I found the gray and white wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby and grabbed the ribbon from the floral dept on clearance.  SCORE!  I love layering tulle with ribbon for fullness and extra color and I thought these turned out so cute!

Plopped those suckers on top of a homemade cheesecake (recipe to come!)

Griffin's meal of choice was cheeseburgers (yes ma'am!)...

.... and we ate, opened presents and got to see a fashion show of all the new clothes she got ;)  HOW IS SHE OLD ENOUGH TO BE ASKING FOR CLOTHES?!?!?!

It was such a sweet night celebrating Griffin and it's extra fun because she REALLY loves the details and appreciates the decor ;). She loves a theme like her mama!

HAPPY Thursday, friends!!!
