A Festive Birthday Party


Meet Laura Derksen, the owner and designer of Arrow & Lace Designs. When she's not busy running her shop you will find her party planning, crafting and redecorating her home! She lives in Chilliwack, BC with her amazing husband (Brody) and adorable children (Ariella & Kenton).

She planned an amazing birthday party for her two year old son and thought we would share with all of you.

"This year all different shapes were used to create this unique and fun 2nd birthday party. We recently moved into our new home so planning a party wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for all the help from these amazing vendors. All I had to do was send them my theme and a color chart witch included different shades of green we were incorporating. Giving the vendors the opportunity to use their own creativity and have fun with the theme was the best decision! They all came through and made Kenton's 2nd birthday party another one NOT to forget.

The balloon backdrop was so simple and anyone can put this together! About 15 balloons were filled with helium and taped to the back of the table at different heights. Really, thats it!! We added small coordinating piñatas that were hung from our chandelier and placed on the table to add dimension.

When it came to the cake and deserts I went to the best of the best! (see full list of vendors below) The perfect and most delicious cake with triangle details and "birthday boy" cake topper, macarons and matching shaped cookies. To add more color and treats I hit up the bulk section of my grocery store to put in glass containers to fill the table.

Custom felt confetti, removable square wall decals, matching napkins, cups and straws pulled the entire look together. I'm so happy with how this party came together and can't wait to plan more events!"

  • Where did you get the balloons filled in Chilliwack? Did you need to rent a tank since the balloons were purchased online? Thanks.

  • Love how simple, yet modern and cool-looking the different shades of green theme turned out! Really great job. Mom’s dress was pretty cute too!
