Little Man Party by Jess Walsham (Joyess Designs)

Jess Walsham (Joyess Designs) created this amazing Little Man Party printable pack, inspired by her own son's second birthday party. This great colour combination of yellow and black is so different and there's not a pirate, nor dinosaur to be seen. It's fun and sophisticated at the same time.

Party: Two-year-old boy's birthday party

Theme: Little Man

Layer cake of chocolate and vanilla cakes iced with vanilla frosting. The word TWO on top is made from fondant icing left to set overnight. Cake topped with mini bunting made using printable Little Man mini flags.

Party Food:
  • Donna Hay macarons
  • Cheese and vegemite moustache sandwiches
  • Ham, mayonnaise and rocket moustache sandwiches
  • Moustache cookies on sticks made by me with fondant icing
  • Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting
  • Popcorn (of course!!)
  • Puffy Dogs (cocktail frankfurts in puff pastry)
  • Chicken and mushroom and beef mince pies from Pie Face
  • Banana lollies, Malteasers and pineapple chunks

1. Editable invitation (4 per A4 page)
2. Blank thank you cards (4 per A4 page)

Jess used a mix of vintage and quilting fabrics for the bunting at the party but you can create this look using paper bunting flags from the printable pack. Black and white striped cupcake wrappers. Yellow striped paper straws.


Jess made moustache-shaped chocolates on sticks using a chocolate mould and melts. Some were milk chocolate and some were peanut butter-flavoured mmmmmm yum! The boys all received a Business Time Tee with the ties appliqued on the front and the girls received a Vestie Tee in girly colours from Joyess Designs.

note: a few of the actual printables in the party pack have been adjusted slightly and extra printables added (such as paper bunting).
