Duck-a-Palooza – Part 1 Decorations

My daughter M turned two this June.  She loves rubber ducks. And I mean LOVES them. So of course her birthday had to be a duck theme. And since I am her mom, that means the duck theme was OVERBOARD!

There were duck decorations, duck themed food, and duck themed games. To help keep you from overloading on duckiness I’ll split this into 3 posts.

So many parties focus on the dessert table. But I really like the theme to welcome you into the house and be carried throughout the party.  For me it starts with the invitation. I love slider cards so I made a rubber duck in a bathtub slider card.

The party favors were one of my favorite parts of the party. I love when party favors are things the kids will actually use or play with when they get home. And surprisingly they were super cheap inexpensive.

Favor table with feather boaThe feather boas were an awesome on line find. So I used those instead of streamers throughout the house. I used some blue fabric out of my stash to drape the table at our entry to help set of the display.

Finally, I cut out many different size ducks and hung them from various places in the house.  Large ducks on the front window, medium ducks over the island, small ducks over the appetizer table.

I love using fabric and paper cut outs to decorate throughout the house. The fabric I can use over for quilting or the next party. And paper I can cut out quickly with my Cricut and is super inexpensive.

But the very best part? Well, that was the look on my daughters face as she walked around the house pointing at all the ducks and yelling “DUCKY!” at the top of her lungs. It was so worth all the work.

Check back tomorrow to see the Duck themed food!
