From the looks of it, Nikki has been plotting to coordinate Immi’s first birthday party with her very first newborn shot in the adorable month-by-month series we posted yesterday. Orrrr, maybe she was so excited by how the series turned out, that it inspired the party? Either way we love it.

Recognize that gorgy floral 1? Nikki made the same for Rylie’s boho 2nd birthday party a few months ago! And she created a simple tutorial you can follow in our DIY Projects gallery here.

Love her use of Rifle party garlands, and gold polkas. (Gold polka burlap is from Joanns.)

She used mixed Rifle wrapping paper to make the little crowns and cup sleeves.

Immi’s little floral crown, made by her mama, is available in her etsy shop, The Scalloped Window.

And perhaps our favorite part, the coordinating photo booth back drop, made using a Rifle Paper table cloth. So cute!

  1. We can all go home now! This is officially the best/cutest/sweetest party of the year!

  2. Adorable! And, it goes to show that a first birthday party can be tasteful and still tons of fun!

  3. So beautiful! The photographs are gorgeous. And the comic bubble photo booth is just the best!

  4. The giant flowers on the wall behind the teepee and on the mantle are gorgeous! Any DIY pointers for those???

  5. Amy- I actually bought all those. Between work, the new shop and a one year old, even fluffing those was daunting. Hahahahahaha. But there are so many great tutorials online! I just saw a pic that my IG pal is making for her daughters birthday and they are amaZing! Her site and contact info is http://www.jaymeannephotography.com!

  6. Simply stunning! I can’t even believe how gorgeous this all is, so inspiring! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

  7. Where is the “one” cake topper from? I can’t find one anywhere!!!

  8. Sarah- I actually made it :) . Super easy. Some poster board, and exacto knife and some gold pray paint :) .

  9. How did you make that gold polka dotted tablecloth! On Joann’s website, they look like little 12×12 inch squares. Did you buy several and sew them together?! I’d love to find out :)

  10. Hi Nikki, I love this party, so chic and playful!
    I wanted to ask where you got the log pillows from or are they inflatables infront of the teepee. I just love them!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this party – Alannah

  11. Sarah… The tablecloth is just one long piece of fabric. It looks sold out online, but I’ve had luck finding a store and it’s been in stock!

    Alanna- they are filled with teensiest little bead things. My husband found them on one of those “member only” I think it’s called JackThread. I’ve seen similar on restoration hardware baby…..but they are probably more expensive!

  12. Nikki,
    What did you use for the ‘pit’ part of the ball pit? I love that it’s not the typical multi-colored ball pit. What a darling party!
    Thank you in advance!

  13. Kirstin- I actually didn’t have “pit” they were in linen baskets and then when it was play time, we just scattered them on the floor. most of the kids would have been to little for a pit :) it was easier for them just to be able to grab them and gnaw on them…hahaha.

  14. Oh wow what a stunning birthday party! Love the theme and the colours are so elegant and feminine. And a ‘naked’ cake too, they really are becoming more popular aren’t they? Did you make it yourself? Julia.

  15. I am in love with the botanical line from rifle paper and this sweet little party! Can I ask where you got the “You are my greatest adventure” print at the top? I’m due with a little girl in 5 weeks and this would be perfect for her room.

  16. Hello! Totally swooning over these photos and this party. Blissful! …. and now I feel silly asking such a silly question… but I LOVE those log pillows next to the teepee. Where can I find those?! Thank you!

  17. Elease- Hi! You can find a lot of cute log pillows on Etsy (http://etsy.me/1py664g). We also featured this super fun camp-themed party a while back that used an entire plush campfire. You can see it here: http://bit.ly/campbday. Hope that helps! xx

  18. Julia, I did make the naked cake!! It’s a confetti cake from the box, with confetti frosting. I used spring foam pans for the layers, and then had a cardboard template to cute off the sides.

  19. Absolutely in love! Everything is gorgeous! Can I ask where you bought the flowers on the wall behind the tepee? And do you travel to do other little ones parties?! Kidding, only sort of ;-)

  20. wouldn’t it be amazing to travel and just design kids parties!?!?! talk about a dream!!!
    I got the flowers here https://www.etsy.com/shop/especiallyforyoubyyw
    aren’t they amazing?!?!
