Floral 1st birthday party
Throwers of girly birthday bashes, you are going to die for the first birthday party that Meagan of Blossom Lane Photography put on for her little dolly Easton. She took the photos, created floral wreaths, made wooden signage, and E’s dad built the backdrop you’ll see below too in celebration of their little gal turning 1.
For Easton’s party, we wanted to share an afternoon with the friends and family who helped us survive our first year as parents. The whole first year rocked our world in the best of ways and celebrating Easton’s life at her birthday party was pure joy. I am smitten with all things stripes and floral so we went with décor that worked with those elements. I worked on some floral wreaths to hang on the backdrop my husband built out of bead board. I also got my walnut stain out and white paint pens and went to town making some fun wood signage to place around the space that highlighted her life and different areas.
How sweet is this?!
Little party goers!
These guys know how to party. Want!
The weeks leading up to the party, my sister, mom, husband and I made all our favorite family cookie recipes: buckeyes, raspberry shortbread, mini cheesecakes, chocolate bottom cupcakes, pillow cookies and chocolate chip cookies. One of my best, most talented friends has a party goods business, Miss Nibbit, and made the invites, favor bags and tags, black and white signage, cupcake toppers and drink tags for the “big girl” cosmos. We served hamburgers and hot dogs, and traditional midwestern sides, like uber yum cheesy potatoes, for our backyard BBQ. I thought with all the planning I wouldn’t be able to enjoy Easton’s party, but thanks to our family that came in, and the friends who helped throughout the evening, it was one of the most special days we’ve had with our precious little Easton… And to see her LOVE her cake was hilarious and worth all the love and energy we put into her celebration.
Happy birthday, Easton!
