Monroe’s First Birthday

First Birthday!

My sweet baby girl Monroe turned 1 back in April and I am beyond excited to share with you all the pictures from the best day! She has been the best baby ever and we wanted to throw her a birthday just as special as she is to us! While thinking of a theme for her birthday, I wanted to create a whimsical, dreamy and perfect day for Roey. So, flowers crowns, cake and balloons it was! We decorated mostly with the colors: light pink, white, gold and lilac purple. I also wanted to do a little garden party theme!

I find it easiest to plan a party around a couple questions.

1. Where are you going to have it?
2. What’s the theme or the color scheme?
3. What are people going to do?

Once you answer these 3 questions filling in the blanks is so much easier. So we wanted to do it at our house because it was family + friends and she’s 1 so it was most suiting. 2. I wanted to stick with light pastels + airy theme. 3. Since she was turing 1 we knew it was going to be more of a social thing for the adults to do and for all the kiddos that were around Mason’s age we got a bounce house. Guys! If you want to throw a good and easy party always get a bounce house. I learned this from my friend and neighbor. She always gets them for her little boy’s birthday parties and the kids just love it! They never stop jumping or get sick of them. They might take short break to eat (double plus, they are eating without you begging them) but they will always jump back on. *Tip: We’ve now rented a couple bounce houses and I have found that the ones with the slides are the ones the kids enjoy the most. They have a section for the kids to jump and the slides so these bounce back and forth between the two (no pun intended ).

 

flower crown station

One of my favorite parts of her birthday (and almost everyone else) was the flower crown station! Everyone was able to make their own crown and decorate them with all different kinds of flowers. It was too much fun! I just went to Hobby Lobby and bought floral wire, floral tape, and made 17″-25″ circles. It was super easy and I added baby breath to all of them already for a little something! Then I used the leftover flowers from Esprit Raw Flowers. People were then able to add whatever flowers they wanted. We set it up with different vases and tiers!

 

The decorations are from both Tai Pan + Zurchers. Tai Pan has the absolute prettiest pieces when it comes to vases, lanterns, platters, faux florals & garland, and best of all for the party was the little bunnies! We got those there and they were the party favors. The little girls loved them! Zurchers is a great place to go to for an paper products, candy, and balloons! They have a huge selection and were so helpful! They also have some fun boutique collections you can see the plates I’m talking about with the cake on them. Hello Maypole provided the most darling felt balls & garland! These tied the whole party together along with the colors! I have been a huge fan on Hello Maypole for years now so I was so excited when we collaborated on this. We also did the slingshots for all the older kids which was just as big of a hit as the bounce house was! They are the cutest for party favors and so unique!

The cake was from The Sweet Tooth Fairy and it was beyond delicious! We did 2. The vanilla + the birthday confetti! I have to say the vanilla was my favorite and I couldn’t stop stuffing my face, whoops! We also had cupcakes, cookies, and cake bites from The Sweet Tooth Fairy and let’s just say they didn’t last too long! Everything was so delicious!

Last but not least would be my long time favorite, Minted. I have been working together with Minted for many years now and hands down they have the best deisgns and quality! We did the invitations together as well as the fun backdrop for the pictures! One of my favorite things about Minted (aside from the obvious) is that they offer envelope addresses and it makes them look so nice! They also have many stamps you can choose from to tie your invites together.

Thank you to everyone who partnered with me to make Monroe’s special day even more perfect!! We collaborated with a ton of people and I’m going to list everything below but please message me if you are wondering about something you don’t see.

    Everything is perfect! I want to take all these ideas and save them for my baby girl’s birthday! I still have about 7 months to plan, so hopefully I can make it look half as beautiful as this with all that time. 😉 love love love!! Thanks for sharing!
