Festive Travel-Themed Kids' Birthday Party: All the Inspiration You Need (PHOTOS)

kids travel birthday partyFor my husband and me, world travel is one of our greatest shared passions. So when our twins were born, we knew we wanted to build a family life that incorporated it ... and it seemed only natural as a theme for the babies' first birthday party.

I was inspired by the babies' insanely adorable passport photos, as well as from by a couple of recent trips to Mexico (Punta Mita and Sayulita, and Tulum), plus the availability of such great Mexican-style decor where I live, in Los Angeles. That said, I knew I didn't want anything too heavy-handedly themed.

To pull the party together with minimal stress, I was lucky enough to have a friend who knows what she's doing: Sarah Granger-Twomey of PIE Productions is a kids' party expert who has worked with all kinds of celeb offspring ... and she was on board to help with the planning and design for our budget-conscious backyard bash.

Here's how it all came together.
