Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!

Where the Wild Things Are is one of my all time favourite picture books, so it's not surprising that I am thinking of basing Maddox's 3rd birthday party on this classic theme. Mind you, the birthday is not until October! What can I say, I love thinking about parties, styling ideas and colour palettes months in advance.

Recently, my thoughts of a Wild Things birthday party led me to create some cupcake toppers based on Max and his wild rumpus adventure. Using natural earth tones of forest green and chocolate, the cupcake toppers come in an assortment of 12 different prints. I picture them being styled in a mud chocolate cupcake with a delicious topping of chocolate shavings. Such a wonderful and unique party theme for boys, easily lends itself not only to the styling fun, but also to the simplicity of the party games such as; pin the tail on Max, storytime, wild rumpus dance and make a gold crown craft.
