Garden Party First Birthday for Twins

A year of laughter, love and fun; our little ladies turned ONE!
To celebrate our flower girls– Zara Rose and Poppy Fields, we planned a spring-time garden party to honor their names as well as their year of growth!
Mostly DIY’d by family, with some items purchased to create an easy, casual garden party with the girls’ closest friends and family.  Matching dresses in different colors (to help party guest easily distinguish between the identical twins) were purchased from Old Navy and floral headbands ordered from Amazon completed the girls’ outfits.
Décor included beautiful paper wall flowers made by a family friend, spring flowers in terracotta pots purchased from a local hardware store, a framed “Stop and Smell the Roses” saying and yummy treats.  A pink and purple ombre-frosted cake, coordinating smash cakes and tulip-shaped sugar cookies were all made by Mom and devoured by guests.

A Magical Day: A Unicorn- Themed Third Birthday!

After surviving the addition of twin sisters to the family, our sweet girl deserved a magical day to celebrate her and turning three! We needed magic, balanced with quick and easy! Like most little girls she adores unicorns and the wonder they bring! Amazon finds and naptime crafting were essential for this busy momma to create the magic! We incorporated magical fun with classic and traditional touches!
Naptime DIYs included the tissue paper rainbow tassel banner, the rainbow cake and chalkboard art! Easy decorations included framing a free unicorn print out and “unicorn name” chart, backyard hydrangeas, old chalkboards and a unicorn figurine cake topper! Rainbow fruit kabobs and a rainbow vegetable platter added to the fun!

Scarlett’s Whimical First Birthday!

We knew we wanted to celebrate our sweet Scarlett’s first birthday with whimsical & natural accents fit for a beautiful baby girl!
We DIY’d everything from floral arrangements (using backyard hydrangeas and branches, and $5 grocery store flowers) and their tin can vases (wrapped with faux moss) to the cookies and cakes!
The sweet, vintage child’s chair belonged to Scarlett’s grandmother, who refinished it for her celebration!
Many decor items, including the chalkboard easel and cake stands, were used at our wedding reception, adding a bit more love to her day!
