Inspiration Board : Steiff Animals at Jude's Birthday Party

Posted by

Have you seen the piece on Martha's granddaughter's first birthday party in the October issue of Living?

It was a lot of fun to help Marcie and Blake make the party come to life. The tables were filled with toy blocks - used as decorations and place cards, as well as decorative place mats and (our favorite!) clear and white bubble balloons. Wooden animals from Enormous Champion were painted white and lined the back of the booth where guests were seated.

One of the most endearing aspects of the decorations were the groupings of stuffed animals on the table. Steiff USA generously lent us a range of small, mohair animals for the event. Steiff USA is a wonderful, historically significant company, known best for their Classic Stuffed Bears coveted by collectors world-wide.

A big thank you to Carolyn and the entire team at Steiff!
