Joaquin’s “Guess How Much I Love You” Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Book Theme Party Ideas


Joaquin’s fondness with the book “Guess How Much I Love you”, a British children’s book written by Sam McBratney, made him really love adventure. Wanting to experience what was read to him, his parents made it possible for him to get a glimpse of what the entire story looked like in real life. With the help of Party Magic, come and join me as I take a peek at Joaquin’s celebration.

The entrance made me feel like I was entering a secret garden. With its unique gate and hanging leaves, as well as the flowers and vegetable arrangement it made me wonder how nice it would be from the inside.

I was so amazed with how the styling team made the ceiling extra festive. There were banderitas and colorful Japanese hanging lanterns making the design really fun to look at.


What a charming setup! With that fine signage of Joaquin’s name and a swing-like chair, the whole set gives a home-y and warm vibes through and through.

Using miniature garden details, the table was designed with white and green runner. Not to mention those tiny pots of garden flowers which made the table look fun and refreshing.

And on the far side, check out our dear Joaquin’s cake. Topped with white fondant icing and tiny characters from the book, everything looks perfect.

How tempting are these sweets? It’s been calling me the entire time. They have them in candy apples, cupcakes, macarons and yes, let’s not forget about the cookies designed with Small and Big Nutbrown Hare.

They had a fun activity booth where kids were allowed to plant and paint their own pots. I’m pretty sure everyone enjoyed adding their personalized touch to their pots and bring them home.

No one went home empty handed. They made sure the kids also got these adorable vegetables as souvenirs.
