A peony picnic birthday party for Mila
Peonies, piñatas and pink, oh yes! Mila’s mama, Los Angeles-based publicist Marlan Willardson, sure knows the way to our hearts. She DIY’d all of our favorite fringy decor ideas, dressed Mila in a dress we wish came in our size, had one of our favorite LA caterers whip up tasty bites, and peonies. There were lots of peonies!
Love those piñata favors hanging from the trees!
Recognize that fringe backdrop? You can find the DIY tutorial on Oh Happy Day!
Happy birthday sweet, Mila!
