Tutus & Ties Birthday Party

My sweet Navy Rose is turning THREE in a few weeks, and so we already celebrated with our traditional big family joint-cousin birthday party! She celebrates her birthday with 4 other cousins {all born in March and April}, three girls and two boys total. We wanted to have a gender neutral theme, so this year we chose "tutus and ties"...

I chose the colors navy blue {surprise surprise! My daughter's name *is* Navy!}, green and pink for the color palette and decided on a handful of fun, preppy patterns to make this party a less princess/tutu-y and more preppy "little ladies and gentlemen"...

I created mini tutus and mini ties to attach to mason jars as table top decorations and vases for flowers...

A fun, and very simple sweet treat to match the party theme, were these marshmallow tutu pops! I dipped the marshmallows in pink sprinkles, put them on a lollipop stick and pushed a pink cupcake liner, upside down, through the stick, underneath the marshmallow! {totally copied this idea from Pinterest, I take NO credit of my own!}

My mom and I made each little lady and gentlemen their own tutu or tie, as their take-home favor! For the tutus, we chose fushia tulle and followed simple instructions we found on Pinterest {of course!} for the tutus. We added green polka dot ribbon bows and hung them on display by mini clothes pins in our windows! For the ties, we chose a 3" wide navy chevron ribbon. Again, I followed instructions I found online to make ties that could easily be put on and taken off with a piece of velcro in the back!

Here's a close up of my cutie wearing her tutu proudly!

We had a delicious two-tiered birthday cake made {by a friend of mine} to match the party's preppy patterns!

All in all, this was a successful birthday party to celebrate 5 amazing kiddos! The theme was so fun to accommodate little boys and little girls on their special day!
