My darling girlfriends threw me the sweetest baby shower a little over a year ago to celebrate the upcoming birth of our daughter. They incorporated the cutest hanging tissue peach/coral POMS and I didn't have the heart to toss them. So I decided to proudly re-purpose them which triggered the Peach themed FIRST birthday party for our sweet little Rylee.
We decided to have the celebration at a local park to minimize clean-up duty at home. Despite the boiling Arizona summer temps, we pushed on forward with lots of peach inspired goodness. As Charles Eames said, "The details are not the details. They make the design." So was true for this little's celebration...everything from peach refreshments, peach beer, peach appetizers, and last but certainly not least...her daddy's famous peach wood pulled pork. And while all of these fun details made the party a success, the snow cone machine was the biggest hit of all.
We couldn't send our little guests home empty-handed so we made up cute Target pail goodies filled with peach suckers and peach flavored jelly beans. The tag was inspired from Rylee's party invitations.
It was so great to be able to recycle a lot of what we had around the home or from previous parties to make this first birthday celebration a special one. And hosting the party at the park sure made coming home to a clean house so much more worth it. One last bit of advice...invite your favorite photographer to the party to capture all the special moments - you won't regret it. Time to start planning birthday #2 LOL ;)
