The theme of the party was Olivia's First Fiesta with grey, pink and yellow as the main color scheme but for the garlands I added a few other colors so that they would pop in the large space to fill.
For the decor I made fabric banners with striped and polka dotted fabric and tons of yarn poms. The kids table consisted of pink and yellow polka dot table runners I made to match the color scheme. The place settings were colorful square polka dot plates topped with yellow and pink napkins. At the top of each place setting sat the party hats I designed to match the party printables. Boys hats were grey and yellow and the girls hats had the colorful polka dot pattern I created with pink and red poms on top. The centerpiece of the table had two very cute elephants on pedestals facing a colorful and romantic flower arrangement.
I made a giant piñata of the number '1' out of an old card box (DIY) and covered it in a wave style pattern with fucsia, orange, white and silver crepe paper. Filled it with tons of candy and sparkly confetti.
The dessert table was the star of the party. The grey background with polka dots was decorated with a yarn tassel garland. The birthday cake had 3 layers of pink ombre style colors filled with buttercream, dulce de leche and covered in more buttercream, yum! The kids could not resist keeping their hands off the dessert table (as well as some adults!).
Guests took home favor bags in pink stripes for the girls and blue polka dots for the boys with designed favor tags with each kids name on it. The paper bags were filled with stickers, bouncy balls, crayons and more candy of course.
Activities involved a giant bouncy castle, bubbles, tons of games and before everyone left they had a lot of fun playing with the props and the background I designed for the photobooth. I loved all the details that went into planning her first Birthday. It will definitely be a party to remember.
The inspirations was definitely my daughter's smile and all the joy she's brought into our lives.
I wanted something modern, whimsical and colorful.

The elephants on pedestals that I found on sale, great find! The piñata and how the whole look and feel of the party turned out.
There are a ton of DIY projects in this party like the yarn poms, the fabric bunting and the printable party decor.

I'm sure the kids love the many sweet treats, but I'm also sure the bounce castle was a much bigger hit!
