Matteo’s Peter Pan Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Hello dearies, how does a trip to Neverland sound? Good? Ohhh no, it’s going to be more than that because Matteo’s Neverland Adventure is ♪ uber impressive ♫. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this theme for parties. There are just so many interesting things/plots to explore in this story. We’re talking about exciting adventures, enchanting creatures and of course, the charming characters, you’ll never go short of inspirations for this theme! If you’d let me (but don’t worry I won’t), I could write excitedly about this party for hours because there’s just too much stuff to rave about. If you’re wondering who is the genius behind Matteo’s bash, why… it’s Kaye Garcia! Yes, bringing her A-game to every party she handles, this party is no different. Adding a touch of whimsy to every party detail, she surely gave Matteo’s party that extra measure of cuteness through and through; to which Cre8tiveminds Photography captured wonderfully. Are you ready? Let’s go.


To make sure every kid is very much in to the theme, they handed out these Neverland-inspired accessories for them. There’s the fairy crown and wings, pirate hats and Indian feathers to choose from. This is a sure-fire way to amp up the excitement to the event.

Silhouettes of Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael were used to embellish their stage and ceiling. Nothing too fancy and yet straight to the heart of the theme, I’d say Kaye added a certain amount of drama and elegance to this theme. The white paper lanterns gave the perfect cloud-like effect to these flying silhouettes.


How about a Pirate Ship table setup? No, I’m not talking about its miniature version because this one is far more exciting. Complete with black and red table runner and huge sail, even Captain Hook will be proud. On the other tables, spotted these floral treasure chest and a very adorable miniature Indian camp site.
