A very pink giraffe-print inspired birthday party for my daughter's first birthday! Shades of pink, giraffe prints, tulips and pennant banner flags made her first birthday party exactly what I envisioned.
The inspiration for this project was actually a dress that Kenley made on Project Runway: All Stars in a competition where the designers had to design a gown for Miss Piggy. I ordered the same pink giraffe print fabric for the table cloth at our party!
Fun & eclectic.
I DIY-ed all the paper goods (cupcake toppers, mini banner flags, food labels, etc)... I designed them in photoshop myself because I couldn't find any online that I liked enough to buy. I also made the tissue poms and banner flags out of four different fabrics from Hobby Lobby. I made all the food myself, too-- cake pops, brownies, white & pink chocolate popcorn, pink party fudge.

I LOVED the table cloth and banners. I am going to make the table cloth into curtains for her bedroom, and re-use the tissue poms and fabric banners for decoration!
Don't be afraid to mix and match fabrics, patters and shades of the same color. And if you can't find exactly what you are looking for, try making it yourself!
