Chapman’s Peanuts Theme 1st birthday party was beyond adorable! You will love all of the festive ideas, DIY projects, and adorable photos captured from his special day….
As guests entered Chapman’s party, they were greeted by a Peanut’s flag and a handmade Snoopy doghouse, a favorite by their sweet Boston Terrier Tilly who also dressed up for the big party by wearing Snoopy dog ears. One of our favorite shots from the party is of baby Chapman wearing his adorable Charlie Brown outfit sitting in front of the Snoopy house.
We wanted to highlight a few key characters from the Peanuts series throughout the party, particularly Woodstock, Charlie Brown and Snoopy. The centerpiece of the dessert table was Chapman’s birthday cake; a store-bought cake decorated with Peanuts sugar cookies on a white milk glass pedestal. To the right of the cake, a Woodstock plus toy sat propped in a nest on top of a pedestal filled with Woodstock cookies. To the left of the cake, a handmade Snoopy dog house created out of wood housed a Snoopy plus toy and was the perfect accompaniment to Snoopy cake ball pops sitting in a plastic grass mat and surrounded by a white picket fence. Colorful cupcakes were topped with Peanuts pics and displayed on a 2-tier wooden cloud cupcake stand. We used colorful Peanuts Friendship dessert plates and personalized foil napkins reading “Happy Birthday Chapman” for serving. Before dinner, guests snacked on chips & a dip served in a red dog bowl while enjoying Lucy’s Lemonade served in Peanuts paper cups with yellow chevron straws. Chapman enjoyed his birthday candle and cupcake sitting in a vintage high chair decorated with a Peanuts banner and a #1 Silver Foil Mylar Balloon, while party guests sang Happy Birthday.
During the party, guests were entertained with a bounce house, riding toys, and face painting/balloon artist Michelle from Bugga Bugga Balloons. The littlest guests crawled through a tunnel and played in a mini pool of balls. Guests dined on hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries and fruit set up outdoors using bright yellow dinner plates, Peanuts Friendship napkins and black chevron stamped cutlery displayed in yellow pails.
