Mila’s 1st Birthday


We celebrated Mila's 1st Birthday at a local Gymboree Play and Music. She loves butterflies and we did a butterfly theme for her party. I did most of the shopping through Etsy, from her costume, decorations to cookies. We selected fuschia, orange and lime green as the theme colors, very cheerful. We hang the fuschia with white polka dots fabric as a backdrop for the dessert table. We also hang a butterfly chandelier from PB Kids as the focal point. Everyone loves the chandelier.

Favorite Items

I love the butterfly chandelier. It just light up the small breakroom where we can set up the food and drinks at.


Start with your child favorite thing/item and build around it.

Mila looked very adorable with those butterfly wings.  I must say that I'd commend you for your choice of fuschia, orange and lime green, all very difficult to source and all very bright, yet somehow the party details didn't clash with one another, instead it gave off a fun atmosphere!
