A peony picnic birthday party for Mila

Categories   Kids Birthday Parties

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!

Wow..just wow !!! Amazing scene sis. Perhaps I will man up and let you plan an event for my birthday. You know that I always avoid (in denial of aging) my birthday right. Looks like a great party. Sammy and I will make sure to get down south for the next one.

I love everything about this party! There are too many amazing little details in the styling to count - simply amazing!

Stunning! You have immaculate taste. Are the peony blooms real?

@Robin Thank you so much! Yes, the peonies are real! xoxo, Marlan
