Betsy’s Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Birthday


My daughter, Betsy, was turning one and I decided to do a Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star birthday theme.  I didn't want it to feel too girly so I used mint, gold, black, and white as the color scheme.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a simple theme that was fun for a first birthday.  I saw a few fun ways to prepare food in star shapes and knew it was the perfect theme. I used Pinterest a lot and found that many other mamas had done a "twinkle, twinkle" theme, too. Thanks for the inspiration, Ashlee Proffit and Kirsten Krason!

Decorating Style

I like decorating with simple details. I usually pick color schemes that work with our home's decor.

Project Details

I DIYed the star garland above the food table. I used a star paper punch and glued them onto clear thread. I had the gold scallop bunting and gold sequin runner  from a previous party and was excited to be able to use them again.

The "twinkle, twinkle" banners were homemade, too, using precut banner flags and gold chipboard letters from Michaels.

I also made felt shooting stars, like these, as party favors for Betsy's baby friends. Each star had sparkly ribbons trailing from it.  The babies loved waving them around!

Favorite Items

I loved the little party hat, even though Betsy was not as thrilled about wearing it!


Choose a color scheme that works with things you already have and compliments your normal decor.
