Party Recap

My youngest babe recently turned ONE! It feels as though we just brought her home from the hospital. We blinked and our sweet baby is now one years old. For our special party we held a small family gathering to celebrate. But we did not go small for her first birthday party decorations! The original party inspiration came from this little sundress by Boden that I fell in love with. They have the cutest kids clothes! I chose to decorate with the banana leaf green, light pink, and bright pink with a few pops of bright yellow. We incorporated a variety of different balloons. We used an adorable polka dot pink balloon and added some tassels in our party colors.I combined some of our popular gold glitter balloons with some solid color balloons in her party colors. We treated our glitter balloons with hi-float following our gorgeous glitter balloon tutorial. Indoors, we created a huge balloon arch in monochrome shades of pink. We secured it over the windows of our great room. I used 4 shades of pink balloons to create this and tropical faux banana leaves tied and taped into place. Our arch was approximately 12 ft. long and contained 95 balloons in 3 different sizes. I hung our new fringed streamers from our windows to create a fun backdrop, add interest and color. Outdoors we decorated too! We set up Sydney's Land of Nod golden teepee complete with streamers, paper flowers, honeycomb balls, jumbo balloon + tassels and white gold one balloon. I love how it turned out. To create this backdrop, we secured our shop's florals to a simple PVC pipe backdrop. After, we taped streamers in metallic gold, white and shades of pink to the top. I adore how they flutter in the wind! This is where we did her 1st birthday photos. We used some adorable gold star balloon weights too- which I totally love. I found a local bakery to make an amazing pink sprinkle cake! It was almost too cute to eat.
