Hello!Lucky: Alex + James’ Rockstar Birthday Party

Hi Everyone! Our new baby has arrived – so I’m off to spend some time getting to know this tiny new person! I’ve asked some of my favorite creative mamas to help out while I’m away on maternity leave. This week, the ridiculously talented and creative mamas behind Hello!Lucky – Eunice and Sabrina – will be sharing a few posts, from birthday parties to their favorite spots in San Francisco. Welcome Eunice and Sabrina! –Nole

We are so thrilled to guest post on Oh So Beautiful Paper this week! Starting off with kids party themes in honor of Nole’s new arrival. Congrats Nole & thanks so much for having us! Eunice and Sabrina of Hello!Lucky

Alex and James rocked out for their rockstar 4th birthday party at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. The museum staff hosted lots of great activities for the kids, including karaoke and making neon gak. We also whipped up a few simple DIY projects that really took the party to the next level. The kids had a blast!




The gloss white birthday banner was decorated with neon gaffer’s tape and the white party favor bags were decorated with neon gaffer’s tape, neon dots, and neon tissue paper.


DIY elements included personalized glittery puff-paint t-shirts in goth rock fonts, leopard print oilcloth silhouettes for wall decor in the shape of tigers, guitars, and lightning bolts, and neon faux fur table runners from Mendel’s. Metallic gold fringe curtains were the perfect backdrop for photos.



Dinosaur and volcano birthday cakes – complete with dry ice eruption! – were created by Noe Valley Bakery. Leopard print food signs highlighted a menu that included mini burger sliders and chocolate zucchini muffins in animal print cupcake liners.
