It's a Leap Year, holy smokes, I didn't even realize it! I came across a party blog's comment on her son's first birthday falling on Leap Year and celebrating with a froggie theme, and I thought, what a great idea, a Leap Frog party!
Get the party started right with this fun invite from Paper Culture
Make lily pads from green paper and make a trail of them from the driveway to the front door. Hang up lots of green paper lanterns, tissue poms, poufs, fans and garlands. Cluster them together like this table from Martha Stewart Weddings
for maximum impact.
Use these green suitcases from Shop Sweet Lulu
to stack food items on. You can order Bird's Party printables
for banners, cupcake liners and more! Cover the party table with these lotus flower lily pads from Paper Source
Oh, so many fun foods you can have...serve frothy frog pond scum drinks by mixing lime green sherbet with lemon lime soda and top with a gummy frog in a clear tumbler. Of course you'll need to add green paper straws from Shop Sweet Lulu
If you need some fruit, to balance out, you can't be this Kermit's Green Apples With Peanut Butter Dip
. I searched desperately for the frog bread
recipe found on Edible Crafts, but it's been taken down...but isn't it bananas?
Top off with sweets like these fun lilypad brownies
from Modern Hostess or this cute cupcake from Disney Family.com
. If this is a 1st Birthday, use this candle from HotRef
on your smash cake.
Send them home with froggie pops from Favor Affair
or clear containers or bags full of Gummi frogs from Candy Warehouse

and I must share a party brain because she posted this styled shoot for Baby Styles the same day this post went live, so of course I had to add it in!
