Flynn’s Colorful First Birthday Party


A colorful first birthday party to celebrate our son

Design Inspiration

I couldn't settle on a theme but loved the colors used for carnival themed parties.  So I kept the colors, ditched the gimmicky carnival stuff and injected lots and lots of photos!!!

Decorating Style

Colorful and fun.  Trendy but custom.
