A casual gathering of family, friends, neighbors to celebrate our daughter Vivian's first birthday! VIVIAN is ONE! please join us for a... “Sip & See” sip some bubbly & see how much she has grown!
Inspiration: Bright spring patterns & bubbly! I’ve wanted to host a “Sip & See” since I learned of this party term! Love me some bubbly!
Casual, Livable, & traditional with a modern twist!
Scrapbook Paper Pennents/Bunting
Being a working momma – I knew I didn’t have the time time to dedicate to an outrageous dessert table, etc – so I focused on DIY paper pendants using scrapbook paper (from Target) and created a baby lounge in my living room so adults and babies felt welcome to get down on the floor and play!
I also recapped Viv’s first year with a photo timeline and hung it up in the dinning room! It was a big hit! Everyone loved seeing the photos! (this was simple to do, dropped a photo from each month /major milestone in powerpoint, added font, took to Kinko’s for printing!)
My dear friend’s each contributed food to the party so to call out their yummy food contributions – I made little place cards with my left over scrapbook paper! A little personal touch and a thank you for their cooking efforts!
As a parting gift to our friends, I sent each adult home with homemade oatmeal cookies and each kiddo with a bottle of bubbles, with a note attached from Viv. (See photo)
I received the most compliments on the photo time line! A big hit with all! Viv was down for a nap when I put it up, when she came down and saw herself – she couldn’t stop smiling!!
Don't stress! Only do one or two DIY projects and remember to focus on the little ones after all this is their special day!
