Little Man Southern Gentleman Party
If youve ever visited the South, youll appreciate the charming ideas in this sweet southern little mans birthday party, styled by Kelli Cross, of Print & Cut Your Printables. Kelli has always adored all things southern: sipping tea on the porch in white rocking chairs, beautiful magnolias, and most especially, being married to a man she describes as a southern gentleman. Having a son who also loves all things southern lead Kelli to theme Hudsons 2nd birthday party Nothin in the World Like a Southern Boy. Youll love how she plays up her sons love of dirt, country music, BBQ, sweet tea and watermelon in the sweet party decorations and birthday cake, all photographed by TJ Photography!

So how exactly does one plan a soiree to celebrate a southern boy? Kelli opted to throw a good old fashioned backyard barbecue! I bet you can guess some of the menu highlightsHudsons favoritesbarbecue and watermelon topped the list! Other sensational sides included strawberries, slaw and southern style potato salad. A refreshingly simple table was set up which included clear glass jars filled with all of the fixins for a delicious meal. I love the clean white tablecloth and how the personalized printable Hudson banner from K Customables pops against it. Darling printable made in the south labels embellished containers which housed wooden cutlery.
Full of rustic charm and southern goodness, the dessert table was definitely a highlight! Its amazing how simple white helium-filled balloons can make an impactful backdrop without much effort or expense. The tissue tassel garland was an adorable way to dress up the front of the table. Wooden crates and pie boxes added fun dimension and levels to the table while also providing a great platform for serving up yummy looking treats! Desserts were a-plenty and included Moon Pies, banana pudding, apple pie, homemade sugar cookies and vanilla cake and cupcakes. I love how printable party logos were purposefully used to add personalization and festivity to the desserts. Used on lollipop sticks, they dressed up cupcakes and the pie and were even added to paper rosettes to use as a cake topper. Sweet monogram accents could be found throughout the table styling, including on napkins and by way of a white, wood letter H.
One of the crowd favorites, according to Kelli, was the Sweeter in the South decorated beverage cart. Offerings included sweet tea, lemonade and Cheerwine (a regional cherry soda). The cart looked adorable with oversized galvanized tubs filled with the beverage assortment, balloons in the party colors and a coordinating printable banner.
Activities aligned perfectly with the simple, down home feel and included swinging with friends, playing in the play house and running through the sprinkler. Guests also participated in decorating fishing tackle boxes and filling them with bobbers and bait. What a darling favor for southern boys who, according to Kellie, love to fish!
If you cant tell from Hudsons sweet expression, this party was a hit! I dont think he could look any cuter than he does in his Southern Boy shirt by mtcvinyl!
