From time to time, I stumble across parties that are quite interesting. This is one of them, a party full of amazing and sweet details that I can’t help not share. Today’s party will bring us to the adventurous world of this lovable comic strip – Calvin and Hobbes (read more here ). Judging by the name of the birthday boy, this theme suits his party perfectly well. (To which I guess, also came to the mind of his parents.) Calvin and Hobbes themed party sounds like a terrific theme for every little boy who exudes a dash of boyish charm complete with mischievous, fun and quirky persona.
Sharing my passion for “challenging” theme is Jaz of Sweet Nest Candy Buffet. I’m glad she took this theme head-on and was able to execute it well, too. Here are some cool details in Calvin’s party captured by Joshua De Guzman of Little J Photography.
In reference to Calvin’s striped shirt and his tiger stuffed toy – Hobbes, lots of red and orange color were used for the decorations.
I love how the wooden elements used at the backdrop balanced out their very vibrant color scheme.
A miniature version of Calvin and Hobbes with their red wagon was used as embellishment in their tables. In case you’re wondering what’s with the newspaper hat, it’s what Calvin and Hobbes wear in their G.R.O.S.S club (get rid of slimy girls club) while the collage photo of baby Calvin was inspired by “Calvin’s Funny Face portrait”. Here’s a fun and cute tip for your next C&H party: ask your guests to recreate their own version of Calvin’s montage. You can download it here.
Aside from the fun show and games hosted by Apollo, guests also got to play with these exciting game booths.
…and here’s Calvin’s cutey cake with matching sweet treats spread.
