Noah’s Monochrome Third Birthday Party

Noah’s Monochrome Third Birthday Party

It may not look it, but I did only start planning Noah’s party about a week before it took place. The cake, I’ve been planning for over a year (I was so excited to try my hand at this infamous digger cake), but everything that came with it (aka Monochrome Madness!!!), was done last minute. The black and white theme sort of came to me right at the end and once I realized that half our house is already set up for a monochrome party, I was rocking and rolling. The weather was absolutely perfect, I am so happy with how the decor turned out (I am a sucker for detail) and most importantly, our little big man had the absolute best time at his first proper birthday party.

I’m using this blog post to ‘dump’ a whole lot of pictures on you and hoping that you can ‘grab’ some inspiration (get it!? ;)) for your next monochrome birthday party. Am listing a few of the places where I sourced goods for the party all the way at the end of the blog.
