If your kids are avid — or aspiring — world travelers, then take note of this gorgeous Italian birthday party. "I think it is safe to say that anyone who has visited Italy would have fallen madly in love with the architecture, food, and people," says Li-Ann Scott of Ham & Pea Design & Paperie, who was inspired by her family's European vacation to throw an Italian bash for her twins' third birthday. "We held the party in our own backyard and tried to re-create a little taste of the Italy we remembered so fondly."
With gorgeous sweets, inventive party decor (tomato cans, hanging cookware), and one amazing invitation — Li-Ann is a stationery designer, after all — this sophisticated soiree would be a hit for a birthday boy of any age, but 3-year-olds Hamish and Luca were especially enamored with the Ferrari piñata and their amazing matching cakes, topped with fondant spaghetti and pizza!
