A Peppa Pig “Muddy Puddles” Birthday {Guest Feature}

What a cute and unique birthday party I have to share today. Created by photographer Laura Winslow for her daughter’s 3rd birthday, the theme is from a British cartoon, Peppa Pig and incorporates one of the character’s favorite activities – jumping in muddy puddles! Since my kids are a little older I’m not familiar with the show but I think some of the ideas here would be cute for a “Charlotte’s Web” theme, or even an “April Showers Bring May Flowers” theme.

Laura utilized several talented vendors to pull everything off {see list at bottom}, and with her creative eye for styling, pulled it all together perfectly. From custom graphics & desserts to stylish decorations and food display, here are the details…

  • The bright colors and eye catching backdrop fabric create a focal point for the party. Stacked suitcases and empty frames provide interest to the table, and a fabulous card display fixture was found at an antique store and painted pink to match. It holds favor bags filled with rubber balls and a tag that reads “We Had a BALL.”
  • For the birthday girl, Laura ordered a personalize Peppa book and had the little guests sign it.
  • For activities she printed coloring sheets for the kids, and had “mud puddles” for the guests to step in {cut out from brown craft paper}. They could also don a pair of rubber boots as they “splash.”

Everything is so adorable and thoughtful. I can’t wait to see what you moms and readers think of next!

    Great ideas for inspiration! My daughter absolutely loves Peppa Pig and so we’re throwing her a Peppa Pig Party for her third birthday coming up in a few weeks. I ordered two Peppa Pig book collections, one that will be one of her birthday gifts, and another that serves as part of everyone’s gift bag – so everyone gets one Peppa book, in addition to other Peppa and pig related items. We’re also doing the muddy puddles paper cut-outs to step on, but as a musical game. I made similar invitations, using powerpoint and incorporating my daughters There will be a number of folks attending the party who aren’t familiar with Peppa so we hope they get acquainted soon!

    Amazing party…wish I could do it but despite you saying parties shouldnt cost a fortune…this party looks both very expensive and very complicated to prepare. If i could afford it, Id also pay whoever organised this party to organize it for me :)
    Thank you for sharing …though teasing ๐Ÿ˜€
    One day maybe :)
    Awesome pictures!

      Lamees, I understand. There is a certain amount of DIY you have to do in order to save money. When you break it down into steps it’s not THAT overwhelming ;-). DIY clouds, bunting { http://celebrationsathomeblog.com/2012/06/no-sew-fabric-bunting.html } , cupcakes, painted frame, & fabric backdrop are things we can all do. I would say cut costs at the designer cake and the amount of licensed items if you need to.
      See, you CAN do it ๐Ÿ˜€

    I really enjoy your creations. Couldn’t help but to ask what did you use to create the “Muddy Puddles” in the cups pictured above?. Is that chocolate I see and if it is not, what is it and is it edible?

    • Chris says

      Hi Johanna, it looks like she used chocolate pudding topped with crushed chocolate cookie crumbs.
