Lumberjack Birthday Party

Grab your axes because we’re about to get chopping!  Today’s featured party is overflowing with creativity, thoughtful details and rustic manly-man charm.  A perfect combination of axes and wood, served up with a giant portion of burly fun.  It’s a lumberjack inspired party that is definitely more gorgeous than gruff.  Red flannel plaid and craft paper brown unite while a bold birch tree backdrop sets the scene.  So brawny-chic!  With maple-infused goodies, oodles of pancakes and a sprinkling of bacon, this party is ready for the hungriest of logger men.  Or little men…. as it was styled and hosted by Dawn Menon of Bee*s Knees Parties for her son’s 4th birthday.  Wood you please join me in oohing and awing over this delightful Lumberjack Birthday Party!

Dawn from Bee*s Knees Parties shares the inspiration for this party:

“My son Reese is happiest when he is outdoors.  For his fourth birthday, I wanted a fun theme that would infuse some of his favorite things – animals, the outdoors, and pancakes!  The lumberjack theme was a perfect fit.”

You better loosen your suspenders because we’re moving on to the dessert table!  Featuring a rustic cake on a two-tiered wooden stand, complete with life-sized axes.   Plus adorable lumberjack cake pops and tree bark butter cookies.  Not to mention the incredible flannel shirt cookies and maple-infused sweets!  Yummm, maple.  And bacon!!

Dawn gives us the run down on all the lumberjack treats:

“We went with a more simple, rustic cake and a wood number 4 topper that I made.  Our sweets consisted of lumberjack cake pops, maple creme brulee, mini tree bark cookies, chocolate moose head lollipops, lumberjack licorice pipes, chocolate bacon mini cupcakes with maple buttercream frosting, and the cutest lumberjack plaid shirt cookies – complete with suspenders!”

    I love the theme was incorporated in creative ways. The cookies with the suspenders are so cute. I’m sure that this little boy had a great 4th birthday party. 😎
