Isla’s Confetti-Filled First Birthday Party


Our house is full of neutral colors (see our daughter's golden nursery on Project Nursery here), but I knew I wanted to throw a colorful confetti party to celebrate Isla's first birthday. We definitely achieved the goal of having lots of bright colors - the balloon arch and honeycomb ball backdrops were just that!

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for the entire party was this Stella McCartney Bell Party Dress. I changed the theme of the party based on the dress alone! I love it!

Decorating Style

Normally, I still with golds, yellows, tans, grays, etc. but for the confetti-filled party, I wanted to incorporate a lot of bright colors. I worked with Riley at Papellerie, and she created the gorgeous invitations - the colors she used for confetti dictated everything!

Project Details

You can find all of the sources for the party items on my blog - Snapshots & My Thoughts!

Favorite Items

My favorite items were the balloon arch (created in part by my talented event planner friend, Meredith of Cake & Confetti) and the honeycomb ball backdrop (which I spent ages making!).
