Describe the party in six words or less.
Little Red Woodland Party.

Where did you start when planning the party?
I was inspired by the illustrations in a book I had as a child. I was looking through it with my son and the idea of a woodland party and green and red color scheme started forming in my head.

What was your favorite element of this party?
I love all the red accents — the red straws and cupcake liners, the polka-dot banners that were inspired by toadstools. They all pop so beautifully against the green of the table and background.
