Bookworm Birthday Party

Never Think About What to Make for Dinner for the Next Two Months with My
Lazy Cooking Bundle

What’s the best way to celebrate the birthday of your little book lover? With a book worm themed party, of course!

Angela, of Taffie Wishes, celebrated her son’s fourth birthday — and love of learning — with book-related items and party decorations that were full of fun school themed ideas.

Each of the supplies were bold and bright in primary colors. Black and white accents made them really pop.

We’ve featured Angela’s parties on this blog before – including her sons’ hot air balloon party and cowboy birthday party and they are both a wonderful blend of style plus great DIY projects.

This party is no different.

Everything was decorated with the most adorable bookworm in an apple. The kids were given fake glasses and bow-ties to wear, which I know my son would have loved as he’s in the dressing-up stage right now.

The food was a variety of healthy finger sized snacks—meats, cheese, fruits and veggies—all in color-coordinated paper bowls.

Instead of cake or cupcakes, Angela served up dirt cake with worms (gummy, obviously) to pull the whole theme together. This party was fun, simple and just about perfect.

Angela also incorporated the learning theme into the décor, activities and party favors.

She bought a traditional composition book for each child and they got to write and draw their own stories, which were sent home in a personalized book bag!
