Color Inspiration: An "Up" Inspired Children's Reception

Disney is one of my all time favorite companies and I have been wanting to do a children's reception inspired by Disney Pixar's "Up" for so long! It is my all time favorite Pixar movie and after seeing this unbelievable party, I knew I had to translate it into a wedding appropriate theme-- for kids of course.

So behold, a rainbow colored, balloon filled, candy decorated concept for the children of your guests to enjoy. Let me preface this with the fact that in yesterday's post I said you could either go all out FUN for your children's reception or you could make it an elegant part of your wedding with kid friendly elements. Clearly with this I went for all out fun, but not to worry, Thursday's Etsy post will cover your other option with more demure pastels.

I truly can't even handle the balloon table in this board, anybody that doesn't want to go back to their childhood and have a birthday like the one above must be out of their mind! If you really want to please your younger guests, all you have to do is think like a kid and think back to all those birthdays you loved.. because a children's reception really isn't all that different from a birthday celebration, except there's no birthday girl or boy! So for this over-the-top concept I've chosen centerpieces made of lollipops and a candy bar & rainbow cake to match! For entertainment try striped hula hoops, crayon rings and modeling soap (like modeling clay but with cleanly benefits)! The bowls from Ikea are only $2 for SIX! Can't beat that price, and of course finish the event with some bright confetti and balloon gift tags!

DISCLAIMER: I will not be held liable if your guests choose to attend the children's reception over the adult one! Who wouldn't want to have this much fun?

Aspiring to Inspire,

Kelly
