Party Recap

INSPO: Our son, Bodhi is ONE in a million. He is our 2nd miracle IVF baby and we knew we wanted to celebrate him & all his awesomeness in a unique way. I snapped a picture of him lying in our bed holding his feet around 7 months and KNEW that picture would be the inspiration that drove all of the details of his party. My goal was to have a sophisticated & kid-friendly birthday party.
DÉCOR/STYLING: I recently attended an event at Bluebell hq and was blown away. I immediately determined I wanted to have the party in their space. Taking the color pallet from the inspiration photo, I began creating a mood board of soft creams, buttery tones, and warm browns, which supported the sophisticated side of the party. The blue-teal pop of color comes from our love of the water, adding a fresh, vibrant accent to the décor. Custom, handmade details, like the welcome sign, hanging backdrop, “one year of Bodhi” sign, handwritten acrylic food signage, and party favors are what create those special & personalized touches. Although design is my passion and career and I love having my hand in all aspects of the event, the reality of it is, I also know I can’t do it all. This allows me to collaborate with some of the most talented people and brands to help me bring my vision to life.
TIPS: My biggest tip is to start planning as early as possible. When I began planning nearly 5 months ahead, some thought I was crazy, but if you pace yourself and spread it out a little at a time, the small details (which create the “WOW FACTOR” at the event) seem less daunting. Getting such an early start also allows me to stay organized, reach out to brands I want to collaborate with, and be sure all of the individual items are going to flow together.
