12 Ways to Throw a Boho-Chic Kids Party for Your Mini-Me
Spring party season is fast approaching. Between all the spring bridal showers and birthday parties, your schedule is about to be seriously booked until August. If you are planning on hosting a party for your kiddo, think outside the standard kid’s party themes box and throw your mini-me a boho birthday party to celebrate in style. Check out these 12 totally chic ideas to buy or DIY for your kid’s themed birthday party.
1. Paper Flower Decor: It doesn’t get more bohemian than *tons* of flowers. If real flowers are a bit over budget, DIY a few paper flowers and hang them behind your dessert table. They’ll instantly add that boho chic vibe you’re going for. (via Icing Designs)
2. Banner Cake Topper: Try this anything-but-boring option if you’re struggling to figure out how to decorate a birthday cake. All you need is a banner to stick on the top and a few fresh flowers to kick it up a notch. You could totally DIY this topper with some leftover scrapbook paper and paper straws.

3. Teepee Dessert: While this might be a little *too* cutesy to have at a 30th birthday, it works perfectly for your little munchkin’s bash. Use ice cream cones, pretzels and icing to make this teepee dessert. It’s super tasty, especially when you’re ready to take that last bite. (via 100 Layer Cakelet)
4. Happy Birthday Banner: Finding ways to decorate on a budget can be a little tricky, but you can never go wrong with a banner like this one. Not only is it easy on the wallet but it’s also perfect for your gathering and doubles as a designated photo booth space. (via 100 Layer Cakelet)
5. Sweet Treats Table: Your number one priority when hosting a party should *always* be the food and dessert because food > everything. Make your favorite sweet treats and dress up the table with fresh flowers from your garden. Finishing off the decor with a mylar balloon gets you some extra bonus points, especially if it’s gold.

6. Bonne Soiree Designs Boho Birthday Invitation ($18): Sending out huge group texts as invitations just isn’t as fun as popping these 5x7s in the mail. Who can resist a good piece of snail mail? Answer: nobody. Snag a set of these invites to send out before the big day.
7. Kraft Bag Party Favor DIY: Filled with confetti, party poppers and all-things boho chic, these party favor bags are perfect for your little one’s get-together.
