EVENT // Max’s 5th birthday party
PHOTOGRAPHY // Tina Shawal Photography

For Max’s 5th birthday party, an outdoor celebration under the trees was the ideal way to party, teepee style.

– A modern teepee themed birthday party in a natural outdoor setting.
– Colour palette of black, white and a touch of green cactus fun.
– Theme inspired by the black teepee party cups.

– A super tall double barrel birthday cake in layered chocolate and white chocolate.
– Macarons with hand painted arrows to match the cake.
– Cookies in arrow, teepee and cactus designs.
– Vanilla cupcakes.
– Marshmallows on sticks.
– Fresh fruit, popcorn, and fairy bread.
– Champagne for the mamas!

– 25 guests including Max’s little school class friends.

– Children played in the teepees and outdoors, with fun games held by Indian Chief and Pocahontas entertainers.

– Hitting the cactus piñata filled with treats, and cutting the cake to reveal all the scrumptious layers.

– Start planning six weeks ahead and have a wet weather backup plan if holding a party outdoors. On the day, take a little time to enjoy your creation and time with friends and family.
