One of my friends gave Will a book called The House on East 88th Street. You might be familiar with it. I fell in love with charming Lyle the Crocodile the first time I read it, so I decided to throw Will a crocodile 1st birthday party. Now doing a party on the book series would be awesome but he’s too little to really appreciate it, so crocodiles will have to do ;).
I collected ideas and created a little inspiration board.
1. Amazing fruit birthday cake by Not Without Salt. This is just an appealing idea because Will is allergic to dairy. Don’t worry, he will have a dairy-free smash cake.
2. Lyle and the Birthday Party, part of the Lyle series, inspired me to base a birthday party theme on crocodiles.
3. Color palette inspired by Oh Happy Day.
4. Party decor also inspired by Oh Happy Day.
I also created a birthday invitation based on Lyle:
Stay tuned for party photos next week!
