A first birthday party is really a party for the parents! The baby has no idea what is going on and through pictures and videos she will see all the hard work and love we put into her party! I love the month of April! It's the beginning of spring! New changes and warmer weather! I wanted to have an outdoor garden party with all of our friends to celebrate our beautiful baby girl in an adult way. With bright pinks and mint green and gold I think I created a beautiful outdoor party for every age!
I wanted a backdrop that I could put behind the dessert table. I originally wanted a barn door but that was too much for my husband to build so he came up with a chalkboard idea. Then I saw all the beautiful cakes on dessert tables everywhere and my ideas kept coming in!
DIY chalkboard, chalkboard art from Lyn Anderson local artist. DIY pennants and paper from Paper Source. Cakes from local baker, florals from a friend-Gabi Bridges. Also not shown, I had funfetti popcorn in paper saks with labels from Paper Source. Cotton candy in popcorn boxes. Milk bottles with mimosas.
The chalkboard and cakes!
