Pinterest is a killer when a first time mom (aka ME) turns to it to get ideas for a party. There are SO many ideas out there and I wanted to do it all. Only, I just didn’t have the time or resources. That is why places like Little Bird Paper Shop are so awesome. You can get everything you wanted to make your party extra special and personalized to your child without putting in tons of time, money, and work. That is exactly what I received….a personalized product that I wouldn’t have been able to make myself.
Little Bird Paper Shop is a wonderful Etsy store. Jennifer, owner and founder, is a stay at home mother who works hard to help make parties more fun while at the same time lifting the load off the parents.
While looking around Pinterest I saw so many different 1st birthday photo shoot ideas, party decorations, and party favors. So many cute ideas and so little time. Thank goodness Little Bird Paper Shop recognizes there are TONS of mothers out there like me!
Jennifer makes really great banners. She makes birthday banners, monthly banners, name banners, gender reveal banners, and even highchair banners! She has a bunch of different themes too! Check out this really cute Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday banner she sent me. We loved it so much we used it in his 1st birthday photo shoot.

Isn’t it too cute! The perfect little Happy 1st Birthday banner! It says Mickey Mouse without screaming WE ARE HAVING A MICKEY PARTY! I especially loved it in his birthday pictures. It allows the attention to be drawn to my son, the reason pictures are taken, but it adds the perfect extra detail that a plain background needs. I LOVED IT!
We also hung this banner at Beckham’s birthday party as a backdrop for his presents table. We had to add some curling ribbon to each end to make it extend across the pavillion’s opening but obviously this would be different if you were having a party at your house. This would look cute at a backdrop behind a food table, attached to the front of a food table, or draped over the porch for guests to walk underneath. It is strung on black ribbon and has ribbon and tulle details in between each letter. Each pennant is about 5.5″ tall.
Little Bird Paper Shop also sent me 12 party favor bags. These are the little details I wanted to have but didn’t have the time or resources to make them myself. Not to mention, I am not creative enough to have come up with an idea like these.
These Mickey & Friends themed party favor bags were to die for cute! We stuffed them with candy, coupons for free kids meals at Chili’s, and Goldfish crackers (Beckham’s favorite treat). The kids were super excited to find out that they were the lucky ones who got to take them home. They loved picking their favorite character. The bags were resilient too! The kids pulled candy in and out of them as they sat on the grass and swapped treats. Then that evening they hauled them to the parade and fireworks so they could snack on their candy there. Adults ooed and ahhed over them.
Little Bird Paper Shop is a great place to go get the little extra that throw your party, photo shoot, and family parties over the top. Their products help make your party more memorable.
Little Bird Paper Shop is giving one lucky reader a Birthday Banner (your choice of Mickey or Minnie and your childs age) and 12 Mickey and Friends party favor bags! (a $41 value!)
