Lola Dutch is a little bit much…but she makes for the cutest party theme! For my little girl’s sixth birthday party we had a darling and whimsical Lola Dutch themed party. This fit right in with my daughter’s love of reading and books, as well as all things pink and charming. It was such a fun party!
If you haven’t heard of Lola Dutch, this sweet book series is about a little girl with an incredible imagination and creativity. She is always being “a little too much” in the best possible ways – painting, baking, creating and learning. She goes on lots of adventures with her friends Bear, Crane, Gator and Pig. The party drew inspiration from the whimsy and creativity in the books and their charming illustrations. Just like Lola, we painted, ate treats and had just a little too much fun!
I like to center my kids’ parties around a focal point, which is usually the dessert table, and this was no exception. This party is so simple to create because the illustrator of the books offers downloadable party printable kits. So I used two of the 24×36 posters as a focal point behind the dessert table. The illustrations are just beautiful! Some draped streamers made it extra special.
There is also Lola Dutch themed fabric, so I layered this Lola Dutch house fabric across the table to carry the theme through. As always my mother-in-law made all the delicious baked goods and treats that brought the table and theme to life!
Aren’t the cupcakes beautiful! The cupcake toppers are also printables and were so easy to make! I don’t tend to use a lot of red but Lola Dutch needs just a little red and these cherries makes things look so cheery and festive.
My mother-in-law also created these darling iced cookies in the shape of cakes, bows, balloons and sixes, as well as handpainted cookies. Just look at the sweet book cookies!
I always like to set up a kids table so everything is just their size, with special plates and cups just for the kids.
All the plates and paper goods were Lola Dutch themed – the darling house plates, rosebud plates, cups and napkins. I layered them on top of this sweet pink Lola Dutch library fabric. And each place setting got its own mini easel and canvas, so each girl could create her own masterpiece during the party, just like Lola Dutch.
I have thrown a lot of pretty special parties, and I have to say this was one of the more simple ones to throw thanks to the printables and themed paper goods. If you’re looking for a charming and whimsical party theme that’s still a breeze to pull off, this one is perfect!
The kit comes with several invitations, which I combined in Photoshop to make my own. It also comes with these cute little thank you tags, which we tied onto pastel treat bags and filled with pastel cotton candy and other goodies.
My mother-in-law also made a simple white cake, which we topped with more character printables and a sprinkle number topper.
This was one happy six year old! We were having so much fun I didn’t grab many photos of the party activities. We painted canvases, played pin the bow on Lola, took turns hitting a cupcake pinata and even put on Lola Dutch tattoos. The party was just a little too much…and just perfect!
