Super Cute Birthday Party Décor

Introducing party kits from the Little Host

Lots of moms hire event planners for their babies’ birthdays. But lots of moms don’t. For the latter, Party City doesn’t always cut it. Enter the Little Host, a new Santa Monica-based website offering thoughtfully themed birthday party kits including Little Artist, Little Scientist, Petite Chef, Ahoy Matey, and Enchanted Garden, among others. With an eye for clean and mod, founder Tammy Morgan Ratner and her creative team have thought of it all, from invitations and favor bags to pennant banners and paper goods—right down to the return labels and color-coordinated tablecloths. The best part is DIYers will feel plenty empowered using the site’s how-to tutorials to put all the details together. Classic kits start from $89 for 12 kids; custom kits start from $249 for 12 kids.
