Real Party Inspiration: Rooney’s Golden Birthday Celebration!

I love the theme behind today’s party! When blogger Kelsey Williams was thinking of themes for her daughter Rooney’s second birthday party she came up with something pretty fun. “I realized she would be turning two on the 2nd. This is called a golden birthday and is very popular in the Midwest, so I went with golds and yellows for the decorations.” Such a great idea! And even if your little one won’t be celebrating their golden birthday at such a young age, the gold color scheme is a super cute idea for any birthday party. Check out all the lovely party inspiration from Miss Rooney’s special day!

    Kelsey set the tone for the party with adorable invitations that included a splash of gold and Rooney’s adorable, smiling face. I love the detail of having the envelope liners be a sparkly gold. Definitely a nice touch.

  • Big Baloons!

    I’m a big fan of these large balloons as party decor. They feel substantial and make a big impact and are a great way to easily tie in your color scheme.

    I love that the dessert bar became the focal point for the party. The golden tassels, golden balloons and spray painted vessels are just a few of the adorable details I love.

    More gold details. I love the idea of creating party decor that can be reused beyond the birthday party. This is a great example as this steer would make great wall decor.

    Kelsey says, “Sometimes I wonder why I spend so much time, energy and money on birthday parties for a toddler who will not remember it, but I think it’s because her birthday feels a little bit like it’s my birthday too. My giving-birth day. It’s a big day for our entire family, and I wanted to celebrate big.”
