Bastille Day 1st birthday for Henry & Marie
You guys. This first birthday? SOOOO good. Henry and Marie are the sweetest little pair and their mama Susan definitely deserved to throw them and herself a big beautiful party for making it through the first year with twins.
She’s a hopeless Francophile and couldn’t believe her luck when her little ones were born on Bastille Day. So perfect! Naturally she had to plan their first celebration with a French theme and she really did an amazing job. Simple, sophisticated, perfectly French. And, might we say, totally attainable if you’re inspired to plan something similar.
Look at these two! Aren’t they just edible?
Susan used Jordan’s crepe paper fringe garland tutorial for the backdrop. We can tell you from experience, it really is pretty and easy!
Love the idea of printing instagrams of baby’s first year to display at their party.
Obviously the parents deserve a tasty cocktail.
Making pinwheels is such a simple idea for a backdrop. Great effect, budget-friendly, and totally possible even if you’re not a major DIY-er.
Packs of French colored crayons!
Congratulations, all four of you! You did it. And you’re gorgeous.
Susan also has a nursery design business called Nesting, if you love her style and want it for your own nursery. And a great blog where she documents life as a mama to twins among lots of other pretty things.
