Lainey's First Birthday

Meredith E By Meredith E  in Birthday


Party Recap

I was honored to be asked to be in charge of my sweet friend's daughter's first birthday party. I was given free reign on everything. What a treat to do a girl party for a change (I have three boys!).

I came up with an "L is for Lainey and Library" theme. The birthday girl's mom is a teacher, and their last name is "Smart" so I thought it was fitting. :)

Colors were salmon, pale pink, and bronze. I made all decorations from atlas pages or pages from books purchased at the dollar store. I purchased vintage brass pieces and fabric yardage at the Goodwill, along with some from my personal stash. The large vintage globe was a huge score from Goodwill for $4!
