James Francis’ Noah and the Ark Themed Party – 1st Birthday

“Noah and the Ark” is perhaps the most known story in the scripture. The young ones absolutely love this account because for one, there are animals involved and two, the message is simple. Sure, colored books and movies get kids engaged in learning stories, but themed parties have a wider canvas to tell tales! Not sure where to start? That is where this heaven-sent party swoops down to save the day!

There are seriously many good ideas for a party themed around “Noah and the Ark” story. This bash thrown for James Francis is undeniably one of the best version we have seen thus far! Based on pales and neutrals, you do not need to add much to make the venue picture perfect. We simply heart the waves, the ships, and the paired animals! What an adorable retelling of the story! By the look of the scene, Bespoke Manila knows exactly how to make this party extra gorgeous! Here are the snaps from Gatz Creatives that will have you clambering for a seat on the ship!

We are absolutely RSVPing ‘yes’ to this invite that made the on board animals the center of attention!

A similar cast of adorable animals was the perfect preview of the big day on stage.


The painted bottles, added with a few blooms and succulents, made all the difference in this table. This is a creative centerpiece idea which I guess would work for a number of different occasions.


Beneath these cute animal faces were some yummy desserts! They surrounded James Francis’ impressive cake featuring some waves and the floating zoo. Also, the table and the backdrop were so charming that they just had to be mentioned. What a lovely way to spruce up the sweets station!

Instead of the usual food carts found in kiddie parties, see their yummy snack bars version 2.0. It’s like the “avant-garde” of food carts! Think brown is lackluster? Think again! This separate bar for s’mores, popcorn, and fries proves that a chocolate background is warm! To energize the space, buntings and baby garbs in cooler colors were hung on the backdrop.

These drawstring bags had two roles – as canvas during the stamp activity and as tokens for kids to take home. Why have we never thought of this nifty surprise before?
