When I first started thinking about what I wanted for my little girls first birthday party I had a few particular things in mind; my favorite girlie colors and butterflies. From there I let my imagination take over and I came up with the idea of a breath of spring, and from that inspiring idea my theme emerged. Baby girls birthday is actually in the middle of February, but even the day she was born was an exceptionally warm day for February. I remember thinking how she brought the Spring with her. And so for this years big first party I knew I wanted to incorporate those sweet elements of Spring into our party's decor to give our guests a real treat after our long and harsh Jersey winter.
Some sweet favors for all of our guests.
Since we wanted to invite all of our friends and family and we knew we wouldn't be able to fit them into our cozy little home we had no other choice than to have the party at a local restaurant. Even still, with a few hand made decorations, a few bunches of colorful balloons from the party store and even some beautiful cupcakes to sit prettily on the cake table the restaurant's dinning room was made to have a very personal feeling. And of course filling it with people we love was the finishing touch!
A special thanks to my good friend Kathia who made us those beautiful and delicious cupcakes. Unfortunately, I don't have the picture of them yet as I managed to snap one with my father's camera. Kathia has her very own blog and successful baking business, please make sure to take a look at her blog and leave her some warm words to make her day too; http://www.pinklittlecake.blogspot.com/
I'll be posting a tutorial sometime by the end of this week on how you can make your very own Butterfly fairy wand, so make sure to stop by again for that soon.
