Maddie’s Pink & Gold 1st Birthday!


25 adults and a dozen kids helped celebrate Maddie's first birthday in style!  We chose an 11am start time to ensure the b-day girl wasn't battling nap time.  This was perfect timing for a light lunch, beverages, a sweet treat and some play time for the kiddos.

Design Inspiration

Inspired by the thought of a vintage tea party.  Soft girly colors that worked well with our home.  Shabby chic!

Decorating Style

Classic modern.  Clean lines and simple decor.  Some DIY and some not.

I loved how it all came together!  One of my favorite features was the gallery picture collection of her monthly growth photos.  Amazing to see how they change!
