WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE

A beloved children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, is brought to life by Nikki Berry for her son's 2nd birthday!  Nikki designed the fabulous, forest-like backdrop herself by using poms and by cutting out paper leaves and using origami flowers and trailing vines.  With a mix of shades of green, the backdrop popped and set the tone for the party!

Notice the fur that lined the table...that was such an unexpected detail and just so perfect!  Nikki also used the fur on the backs of the invitations that she designed and hand-delivered to the guests~

Nikki always amazes me with her gorgeous cakes that she makes for her children's parties (Nikki shared  her daughter's party here)...this one is no exception!  I love how it is topped with Max's crown and displayed on a tree stump!

The inside of the cake is a work of art, too~

Cake Pops added to the theme~

Favors included these amazingly cute and detailed cookies made by Nikki...

The favor tags include a line from the book, "...Oh please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so!”

And, each guest received wild, wooden crayons to enjoy illustrating their own wild rumpus!

Thank you for sharing your son's party, Nikki!  You did such a wonderful job of bringing the forest to the party and bringing the wild things to life while celebrating your favorite little boy!  Mr. Sendak would have been proud!
