I chose the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme because it's one of Layla's favorite lullabies, and we often refer to her as our little star.
I wanted the event to be soft and feminine with lots of sparkle. Since I had previously decorated Layla's nursery in pink and gold, I just couldn't resist using the same colors for her 1st birthday party. Not to mention that I knew I could transition some of the decor to her room after the big day. I used Pinterest as my main research tool, and it provided me with a plethora of fun pink/gold 'Twinkle' parties. There was no shortage of creative ideas!
I decided on the theme in June, and began collecting items and ideas up until the last week in October! All of the party details including DIY projects and online tutorials can be found on my blog.
