One of the most welcome sights of spring is rich, green grass. At this baby shower it is effectively paired with lovely, white flowers and rustic elements to create handsome décor.

From Sunshine Parties via Pretty My Party

Meet at the fishin’ hole or at this dessert table? I know where I’d go! Bobber cake pops, skimming stone macarons, and colorful fish sugar cookies are just the start of all sorts of fun. Bet the kids LOVED the take-home favors, too.

7. Boy’s Backyard Safari Themed Birthday

From Favors and Memories via Catch My Party

Look close at that dessert table: it’s entirely made of pallets! This clever event includes animal prints, burlap, wood slab displays and a menagerie of plush animals. You’ll want to see what was used for the guest tables, too.

Boy's Under the Sea Birthday Party Ideas

8. Under the Sea Birthday Party Theme

From Jolee Studio via Kara’s Party Ideas

Bright blue, navy and green, plus rustic details attractively carry the under the sea theme at this five-year-old’s party. I love the witty crab eyes on the sandwiches. I love the sunglass idea for helping kids getting right into the party.
