Strawberry Shortcake Inspired Party


Our little one has had a rough first year of life as she dealt with some serious health issues.  At one point we weren't sure if we'd even get to celebrate her first birthday, but thankfully her health took a turn for the better and she's on the road to recovery.  I knew we needed to throw her a very special party as she's definitely one special little girl.

Design Inspiration

We call our sweet girl our little "Shorttcake" (yes, two t's on purpose) so I decided on a strawberry shortcake inspired theme mainly pulling the colors pink, red, and green as the inspiration along with all things "berry"

Decorating Style

contemporary and transitional

Project Details

Everything started with a pack of strawberry scrapbook papers I found at Michael's. They were used to create the backdrop for the monthly photos, the party hats, and all the flag banners. The fabric for the tablecloths and backdrop came from Walmart and JoAnn Fabrics. The fireplace banner and the banner on the front door were made by I Do Originals. The birthday chair was a gift which the purchaser got at Babies 'R' Us The bubble favors were a cheap find at the dollar store and I created custom wraps to go around them and tied with some coordinating ribbon. The drink containers were purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Favorite Items

It's so hard to choose a favorite item, but I'd have to say the fireplace banner.  It was a great focal point for the room and it made for a terrific backdrop when the birthday girl opened her gifts!  I also really loved the monthly photo display on the two story wall.


Stay focused!  There are so many amazing ideas out there so it's really important to keep in mind the overall feel you're going for and the specific items you need in order to make that vision come to life.
