February turned out to be a party month! Kate celebrated with friends at home in Texas and also in Illinois with family. We’ve been here, there and everywhere! It’s been busy and fun and we’re heading home very soon. I am so excited to share her party with you now that all the festivities are over and I’ve had some time to breathe again. Warning – lots of photos in this post. :)
For Kate’s 1st Birthday, the theme was inspired by “Sugar and Spice and everything nice…that’s what little girls are made of!” I incorporated vintage fabrics with modern fabrics, ribbons, and shades of pink, aqua and white. It was challenging to keep the same elements for each party considering they were in different states. You’ll see a few differences in the IL party photos. The first gallery of images is from the party in Texas.
I made the fabric strip garland, both cakes, the wands, the pink cookies, the invitation, the favors, and the punch. I purchased the fondant #1 and the cake toppers from Parker’s Flour Patch on Etsy. The metal tops for the mason jars and the straws are from The Papered Nest on Etsy. The table shown in the photo was my vanity from childhood. I refinished it white and put new hardware on it. The berry containers that I put the pink cookies in are from Anthropologie.
Kate on her 1st birthday!
Here’s the photos from the IL party at Grandma and Grandpa’s house! Kate had SO much fun! She wasn’t a big fan of cake at either party. She wouldn’t eat it and didn’t really like the feel of it. Ice cream on the other hand…she will eat herself silly! :)
Here’s the birthday girl 50% shy and 50% LOVING all the attention! :) Love her!!!
