We wanted a first birthday to reflect our little girl. Her name Celeste means Celestial - the perfect first birthday theme.
We had a small brunch gathering with family. The inspiration for the look started with our invitations, a round galaxy print with a crescent moon-shaped cut out, with a round pull out invitation with details in holographic foil. This was the base for the colours as well, balancing deep navy blue with lighter tones in lilac, soft pink, and of course, holograph.
Each plate was adorned with a moon shaped cut out of each guests’ name, or who they are to Celeste (the place setting vavó for example is for her Portuguese grandma). Even though it was a brunch party, we had to include a celestial cake topped with a moon. Don't worry, it was a pancake flavoured cake to keep it within the brunch theme. The balloon arch with tons of stars and moon balloons helped create a focal point for the cake and cinnamon buns on a holographic table.
All the paper goods (stationery, name cards, cake toper) was made using a silhouette paper machine, and a laminator was used for the hot foiling process. The print above the brunch goodies, with the most incredible quote ever by Tyler Kent White, used the same galaxy pattern on the invitations to keep the theme cohesive from the very beginning right to the celebration.
