Description

Our house is full of neutral colors (see our daughter's golden nursery on Project Nursery here), but I knew I wanted to throw a colorful confetti party to celebrate Isla's first birthday. We definitely achieved the goal of having lots of bright colors - the balloon arch and honeycomb ball backdrops were just that!

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for the entire party was this Stella McCartney Bell Party Dress. I changed the theme of the party based on the dress alone! I love it!

Decorating Style

Normally, I still with golds, yellows, tans, grays, etc. but for the confetti-filled party, I wanted to incorporate a lot of bright colors. I worked with Riley at Papellerie, and she created the gorgeous invitations - the colors she used for confetti dictated everything!

Project Details

You can find all of the sources for the party items on my blog - Snapshots & My Thoughts!

Favorite Items

My favorite items were the balloon arch (created in part by my talented event planner friend, Meredith of Cake & Confetti) and the honeycomb ball backdrop (which I spent ages making!).

    Hi . I would LOVE to find where I can still get the multi-colored Stella McCartney Bell dress for my little girl for her first birthday. It would be absolutely perfect. Do you have any ideas or would be interested in selling yours? Thank you:)
