This was by far, one of my favorite partys yet!  Around the World We Go!  There were so many ways to actual take this 1st Birthday Party.  But we stuck with a map theme, based on the decor for my little tykes room.  You may remember that other 1st Birthday Party https://amandajeanevents.wordpress.com/2010/07/27/9/  based on a nautical theme selected the same way.  I found inspiration for the map themed party online when I searched for “globe” invitations.  I customized and created the invitations, then created the map inserts for the envelopes and out they went!

For decor I searched high and low for vintage maps and globes, but came up empty handed.  So I found these teal round paper decorations at Party City, and used them to represent the globes at the party.  I cut the banners from maps and strung them with twine, and then wrapped some boxes in maps for height to display the cupcakes.  For games, I had a US Map and asked guests to flag where they were from!  I made customized passports for our child guests which doubled as their favors, complete with their own photos, and had stamps and pads available for them.

We kept the food simple with finger sandwiches, chips, popcorn, some candy, cake and cupcakes.  I made the cake and even ventured into using fondant for the first time.

I was so happy with the way the entire party came out!  This theme could work for any age party, an engagement or bridal shower, and I even saw it done for a baby shower.  Planning a travel themed party – let us help!
