We wanted to have a beautiful, fun party to celebrate our sweet Carolyne turning 1! Our "theme" was "Sweet Carolyne" (like the Neil Diamond song) and included a dessert table with nothing but "sweets." We used different shades of pink and coral, along with gold and glitter accents. Most everything was DIY by mommy!

Since the party was at 10 am, we had a breakfast bar with some brunch favorites - mini pancake stacks, sausage balls, chicken salad on croissants, mini blueberry muffins, and a yogurt bar!

Design Inspiration

We based the party decor loosely on Carolyne's nursery (we love gold glitter in our house!) as well as the song "Sweet Caroline"
