A Project For

Ischa's first birthday




the Netherlands


My son turned one and they say the first birthday is the birthday for the mother. Well, I took advantage of it! I wanted to give him a special first birthday.

In our country they don't make dessert tables and the decoration doesn't go beyond balloons en screaming colours. I wanted to make something original. Project Nursery have been a great inspiration!

Design Inspiration

I love everything retro and vintage. I love the color blue. That was the starting point. I choose the colors purple, blue, green and orange. I had ordered scrapbookpaper in these colors with retro prints. I wanted to show the photo's from last year -  to see how he grew - so I chose this as a centerpiece.

Decorating Style

Retro, vintage and DIY!

Project Details

Everthing is DIY. I made the garlands, cake, cupcakes, popcorn bags, labels, pompoms, centerpiece and botlles of water.

I bought the paper straws at a Dutch online store. You can buy similar at
