I had so much fun planning Ada’s first birthday and I really love how everything came together. One of the best things about the blogging world, is learning and sharing from each other. I love reading posts about parties and how it all came together. So here is my contribution regarding my daughter’s first birthday party.
Since the inspiration came from Ada’s yellow bow, I will start with our outfits!
Ada’s bow is from Free Babes Homemade and her romper is handmade from The Cranky Peach. I love the colors and pattern of her romper. It matched the colors of her party so well! My dress is from ModCloth – you wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to find a dress that was pink and yellow. Who knew!?!
The retro “You Are My Sunshine” prints came from KZukowski. She was great to work with and she even tweaked the colors a little to better match the party. I originally found these prints at thelandofnod.com, but they wanted $40 a piece for them! That was a bit too much! KZukowski was cheaper and I got them custom! They will be perfect for Ada’s nursery/playroom now that the party is over.
The “Ada is One” print is from INVITEDbyAudriana. I used her entire, “You Are My Sunshine”, party pack – it came with invitations, food tents, Ada is One print, and the party favor tags.
The “You Are My Sunshine” banner and woolie ball banner came from Hooray Everyday. Hana was great to work with and she made a custom banner with my party colors. I love how they turned out and plan on using them again in Ada’s nursery/playroom!
I made the monthly milestone banner with baker’s twine and mini clothespins. I love it paired with the woolie ball banner! It adds a beautiful pop of color.
The cakes were made by a friend of ours from Perfectly Pretty Sweets. Not only were the cakes gorgeous, but they tasted amazing! I was so glad to have leftover cake, I got to enjoy it all by myself for several days! (I am going to have to start running now!) If you need a baker in the Asheville area, go to her! You will not regret it!
The script “one” balloon banner came from Shop Sweet Lulu. I love this shop! They have beautiful and unique party supplies, all at a great price! I also got our balloons from here because they had the perfect colors!
The pinwheels came from PaperWeeds. She was great to work with and sent me my pinwheels quickly! Using pinwheels for decorations was one of my favorite ideas! They are so cute and fun! The tassel garland was made by me.
I used PaperWeeds’ pinwheels in my flower arrangements as well. The blue mason jars came from Shop Sweet Lulu, which I love and plan on using them for everything from here on! The “Mimosa Bar” sign was made by me as well.
The party was so fun to plan and put together. The day was perfect and I know Ada enjoyed all the decorations and celebrating! Thank you to all the shops I used, you made the party beautiful! A special thank you to my mom, who helped me out so much in getting this party together! And thank you to all who came to celebrate our little girl! You all mean the world to us and we love you! Thank you for making our daughter’s day!
Now on to planning the next party! 😉
