This Lilly Pulitzer inspired turtle party theme is so darling I am almost not sure where to begin. Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails created this custom party for her own daughter who was turning 3. All the elements are perfect. From the pink and green party colors to the preppy turtle details Kori didn’t leave one detail undone. My favorite element of the party is that it was completely toddler proof! No glass vases to break, nothing to worry about except having fun at this pool party!
The kids’ table was set up poolside. This Lily Pulitzer table wear was the inspiration behind this preppy turtle theme. At the table, each child ate their personalized boxed lunch (love this idea- so simple!).
This pink and green themed dessert buffet was a perfect fit. You’ll notice that all the items on the table are plastic and won’t break. Because this party was poolside, it was important that Kori design it to be toddler-friendly.
These donuts are perhaps the cutest thing…. great idea for little fingers to grab.
Kori’s favorite elements? The taffy wands (shown on the dessert table) and these darling fondant turtles that perched atop the cupcakes. Her daughter loved the pinwheels and would often be found mesmerized — blowing them and watching them twirl.
Cool poolside sips.
Cookie favors carried this turtle party theme all the way through and gave guests a little something sweet to take home for later.
