Floral First Birthday

Since party design is in my blood, naturally, I was very excited to style Charlie’s first birthday party. I have an obsession with everything floral, so it didn’t take long to know that was what I wanted as the theme. I wanted to keep everything simple and feminine, and it all turned out beautifully. It was a wonderful day to celebrate the birth of our girl!

The dessert table was the focal point of the room. We had so many delicious desserts and of course- flowers everywhere! Fresh eucalyptus and pink peonies were my choices of flowers and greenery.

I purchased a journaling Bible to give to Charlie when she gets older. I am going to fill it with words of wisdom and highlight special verses for her in the meantime. I had it at the party for friends and family to leave something meaningful for her to one day look back on.

No party is complete without bubbles and mini party hats!

I made this floral hoop with her 1-12 monthly photos to match the hoops I made for the dessert table. Guests loved being able to see side-by-side photos of how much she has grown and changed.

She wasn’t too sure about the cake at first, but it wasn’t long before she was eating fistfuls at a time!

Galentine’s Day Party Guide

Happy February! To kick off the month, I teamed up with my friend Alexa of thealexanicole.com to put together a fun Galentine’s Day post to give you some inspiration if you’re looking to host a party this year. Galentine’s Parties have been a cute trend for the last few years now- and it’s a great excuse to throw a party with your girlfriends and indulge in some delicious treats!

 We had a great time playing around with pinks, reds, glitter, and all things girly.

Strawberry frosted donuts make the perfect Galentine’s dessert! Who doesn’t love donuts? Include some fresh strawberries to add a splash of red!

 This tablecloth was a DIY. We wanted something more monochromatic that would still pop and look girly enough for our party. We picked up a plain white plastic tablecloth, some black washable paint, and simply added ‘X’s and ‘O’s. It was so simple and turned out really cute!

Candy hearts and rose petals spread across the table runner added a sweet and festive detail.

Adding pink cotton candy to our glasses tied things together. Pour your drink of choice for a sweet and girly treat!
