Nia’s Tutu Tea Party
Nia’s First Birthday!!
Nia’s First Birthday!!
For my son’s first birthday party, there was no theme, just lots of bright colors and lots of photos of the birthday boy. The main colors for the party were yellow, aqua and coral. I made a DIY photo “booth” for guests to take photos with fun accessories during the party. To see more of his party, visit icecreamoffpaperplates.wordpress.com.
A Mickey Mouse first birthday party for my 1 year old son.
I wanted a fun & colorful birthday for my son. I was browsing Pinterest for ideas and saw a neon animal party. I took that idea and ran with it, making a board of all kinds of animal themed ideas.
This is a Pinterest nursery if there ever was one! I took several different ideas that I loved and combined them to create a fun, girly circus theme for our new baby girl, Evia. In the last month of my pregnancy, I was nesting like a mad woman! I ended up making or altering the majority of things in the nursery. To be truthful, it’s now my favorite room in the house…I’m wondering why I haven’t put this much work into the rest of the rooms!
Mila wanted a cheery and colorful theme for her birthday and she picked Rainbow. We brought in a fairy who did face painting, balloon twisting and magic show for entertainment.
So happy to share with you this fantastic and beautiful baby shower we styled for my friend Ilianetsie’s Baby Shower! Turns out this will be her third little boy, so we wanted to make something simple but fabulous. A ladies only brunch with 50 of her closest friends and family. We went with the hot air balloon theme simply because we’ve never done it before and she seemed like she was on cloud nine with this baby.
A DIY ice cream sundae themed 4th birthday party to help us get through the cold winter months.
One of our most memorable moments of 2012 was our daughter, Harper Rose’s 1st Birthday Celebration! Although a nod to her first 365 days of youth, we wanted this celebration to be about all of us, and the fact that we made it through the first year of parenthood!
Her birthday is in the dead of summer here in Arizona so options are limited! I began brainstorming a few days before the event… HA! Kidding- I pretty much started brainstorming our first night in the hospital. If you can’t tell by now, that kind of move is all my style! We came up with a Dive- In Movie theme where our adult friends could lounge in the pool and stay cool and our friends with kids could enjoy the movie on the big screen; we were thinking beautiful summer night, huge projection movie screen, swimming, floaties, movie candy and concessions and ice cold Kool-aid (and adult refreshments)!
Little Colby was turning two and his mom wanted a party based on his love for trains!
While looking at Project Nursery for nursery ideas, I saw the parties that people were also posting. So, naturally, when my little guy was going to turn 1, I consulted this site again, looking for ideas. For some reason, monkeys have been a theme with him, so I chose to go that route. I liked the “Mod Monkey” theme but instead of buying that party themed decor, I designed everything myself using digital software.
Selah Grace’s girly Onederland First Birthday Tea Party! It was a day of fun, celebrating the greatest gift we have ever received, our little girl!
A simple, fun, colorful polka dot baby shower
I wanted to do something bright and fun for my son and his fellow 2 year old friends and a Circus fit the bill.
For my daughter’s second birthday I wanted soft, sweet colors and what little girl doesn’t love to twirl around in a tutu?! The party is a combination of DIY projects, items from vendors (I discovered I was not very good at making tulle pom items), and reuse of items (I have used those mason jars for my wedding, baby shower, Presley’s 1st birthday, and now her 2nd).
We had a “Curious George” themed birthday party for our curious little boy- Aaden. Party was held at Kidville- activities including art table, parachute play, baby zip lining, and a Taiwanese tradition: “Baby First Grab- Zhua Zhou”.
I decided to do a western themed birthday party for my son’s second birthday.
I designed this first birthday party for my one year old daughter, Emery. I knew I wanted the party to have a vintage antique feel with soft colors and vintage style patterns but also the modern Chevron pattern. I have been gathering ideas and “picking” pieces for a good 6 months.
