Juan Lucas’ The Little Rascals Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Raise your hand (or foot) if you are pretty obsessed with “The Little Rascals” movie. Not just me, eh? Awesome! What is not to love tho? Petey the pup, a group of cutie patootie kids mustered up in a series of amusing and outrageous adventures, and a lot more on my mind – wow, do I miss them! I have always wanted to write about a party around just that theme and today, I consider my morning prayers answered. Stay with me here, a nostalgic party time is coming your way. Otaaaaay!

Do you get the feeling of panic that comes when you find out your favorite movie is being used as a party theme, but in a different kind of way? This party for Juan Lucas was that for me! “The Little Rascals” is certainly not new to the party scene, but this one flipped the script on the whole party thing thanks to Bespoke Manila. To them, you do not need bold decorations to make a big impact. Just play with tons of colors and distinctive pieces, and you are good to go. Just see how they styled this bash. No competing elements and character props, would you believe that? A natural color scheme, greenery, and just simple TLR iconographies were all the decorations they needed. Now that is something we do not see quite as often, do we? Oh, I know you are excited to see the snaps, so here you go, pals!

I am a big fan of bringing some personality and humor into invites. This one is a cute example, I am starting a slow clap for the “Love note? No! Birthday note!” deet. Goo-goo ha-ha!


I adore this set. The small plant, wood designs, red wagon, and tire swing make a cute, outdoorsy entrance setup that feels at home inside. Major bonus: You can also get the photo backdrop of your dreams with this adorable installation. Two for the price of one!

Okay, this thing is not entirely a tree house, but the stage gorgeously captures the hideout of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club! I am going bananas! Everything is on point and even those signages are recognizable for anyone who watched the movie. And who could forget that iconic red Radio Flyer wagon? This is really a nod to nostalgia!

The whimsical paper lanterns give the room a super homey feel. Not to mention that they look clean and simple.


And yet another idea I think you would love – bean bags as party chairs! Aside from keeping things simple here, Bespoke Manila also made this bash cool and crazy comfortable by seating the cute rascals on these fun pieces next to a low table. They also added a bushel of apples to grace each tabletop and feed the guests. Teehee.

The table setting for the parents are equally pretty! To make the setting appear less kiddy, tall plants and white blooms plopped into wooden crates are added as tabletop adornment.

Our favorite tree house baked into a grand cake! Gah, I am in love! This might be the ultimate throwback birthday cake!


This blue and red dessert station is all kinds of cuteness, particularly the mix of things in the scene – woods, fabrics, glasses, and baked treats that invite munching!

Whimsical is the absolute right word to describe this snack bar that serves fries and popcorn. Bonus cute points for coning them up!

Whoever thought of this whole activity is genius. The wind chime painting is completely unexpected and makes a great takeaway at the end of the celebration. Double win!

There is pretty much no party game as universal as balloon pop, corn bag toss, and ring toss! Oh, the fun.

Tool boxes are not just a dad’s tool anymore. They are now for kiddo’s party goodies, too! These favors are super duper cute!
