Party Recap

I made this party as adorable as the little girl it was hosted for! Little miss Eleanor; Sweet little “Ellie” has a wonderful mother who informed me that she would be wanting a pink and grey Elephant themed party! After we decided on an invitation to fit the occasion I started referring to this birthday theme as the “Pink and Grey Modern Elephant Party”.
She had everything a little one year old could want. A sweets buffet filled with Strawberry Shortcake Jellybeans, Yogurt covered peanuts, as well as Pink Swirl Marsh mellows-Yummy! We had a beautiful cake design which was a collaborative effort of myself and created from my wonderful cake vendor “Sweet Spot Cupcakes” along with beautiful pink and grey mini cupcakes! All party printables, and table designs were made by myself: Kate “Events by Kate” as well as the most adorable party favors for the guests to take home “Peanut Favors”! The design and coordination of this event was prepared and designed by “Events by Kate”. I also did animal cracker Chinese takeout box with Ellie’s adorable picture on the front. The Ellie Mason Jars have white + Pink Chocolates, and we even had extra peanuts!

I chose modern pink prints, as well as made an adorable Elephant centerpiece, themed to match the invitations! Photos were made possible by my beautiful sister in law as well as myself; I am still learning how to use a camera! My sister in law is a fantastic local photographer Ashley MacDougall of “Ashley MacDougall Photography”!

    Hello! I just love the decorations! I was wondering if you sold or had a tutorial for the banner that says "Ellie is One". I like that it is simple. I would love to have something like that for my daughters birthday coming up. Thank you! :)
