My baby girl's 1st birthday party.
I really wanted to create a dreamy, whimsical feel. The main inspiration for my party was the color scheme I found. Peach, sea foam green, cream and light pink. Andi is so dainty and delicate; I really wanted her party to highlight those qualities we love most about her.
vintage and shabby chic
For the lemonade bottles I used star bucks frappachino bottles and took off the labels. They were the perfect shape and size for little hands. I used coffee filters for the white wreath. so cheap! The cupcake toppers and birthday hat were made from my scrapbooking supplies. The pinwheels and wreath details were made from old dictionary pages. Instead of ordering macaroons I made homemade whoopie pies. I used strawberry cake mix and cream cheese frosting
The cake and birthday outfit.
My main advice would be to borrow. All of the dishes and cake platters were borrowed. For the tissue paper balls I bought all of the tissue paper after Christmas, it was way on sale. I used a shower curtain as the table cloth. It fit perfectly on my square table.
